Howdy Ags!

Wife and I and potentially In-laws are looking to move to Tyler. Currently live in Fort Worth and our getting tired of the hustle of the big city. Even the "small towns" outside DFW are disappearing. Tyler seems like a great option since we can commute back to the DFW conveniently. Anyways, we would like to build a house potentially on 10 acres. Wanted to get ideas on what places to see, neighborhoods to check out, local hot spots etc. thanks in advance!

Here are a couple of similar threads from the past. They might have some helpful information, too.
Welcome to the area. It's a nice place to live.

And if you're looking for an easier commute back to DFW and you want property - stay close to loop 49 or I20, because the hardest part about getting to DFW is getting out of Tyler.

Welcome

We just moved 1 year ago. When I get some time I'll type up some recs from our experience. One of the links is above with advise from others when we moved.

I left Smith County for A&M and the Army in '93 and have never made it closer than living 3 hours away.

East Texas will always be home in my heart. Will move back someday

The Area around the east bank of lake Palestine is a great place to live. Easy access to Loop 49 and most of the good stuff in Tyler is on the south/southwest side of town.
