Newest retirement development in West Tyler, the Cascades.

I personally think that Tyler is just a little bit nicer & prettier than Waco. However, I do like the fact its in the middle of Austin & Dallas, which is a huge plus. It also has Baylor University, which I like.

Tyler sits exactly 90 miles between both Dallas & Shreveport/Bossier City, La. So if you're into gambling & casinos, Louisiana is right next door.

Waco is prairie, Tyler is wooded. Similar cities, yet very different in other ways.

looks a little too removed from a large city for me.

As far as atmosphere; they remind me of eachother. I agree Tyler is more attractive looking than Waco, but Cameron Park in Waco is very beautiful and hilly. You won't get views in Tyler like you will around Lake Waco. I actually prefer wild open spaces over lots of trees.

Coming from New Jersey I can see how you might think this way. This is Texas though & stuff tends to be spread out over hundreds of miles.

Its not compact like the Northeast that's for sure. Some of our counties are as large or larger than your cities.

Doesn't look like a place where I would fit in too well. I would prefer to be in a large city near the coast. This place seems very isolated...and I would imagine it's a pretty conservative place.

Not to be an ass, but Tyler seems like the type of place I would avoid at all costs.

True, Tyler is not for everybody & is on the conservative side. Glen Beck spoke here last month & Sarah Palin is coming down in the next few weeks.

If you're the type of person who values family first, Tyler is it. We're like a small-big city is the best way to describe this place. We have almost all of the amenities of a large city without the hassle. Daytime traffic here can rival even some of the larger Texas cities. When there is something I can't find here, I go to Dallas (90 miles) or Houston (200 miles). From Tyler's Regional Airport I fly to Dallas in 30 minutes & Houston in less than 1 hour.
