Our family recently took a trip to North Texas, and stayed at the Coyote Creek Cabin, a dog friendly Airbnb, in Lindale.
We had never been to Lindale before, so everything was a fresh and new experience for us. Lindale is also close to Tyler, Texas, so we were able to visit Tyler as well.
Our intention is to always travel on a budget, so here are a few budget friendly ideas for travel to Lindale and Tyler:
The Pink Pistol – Lindale
- The Pink Pistol – visit The Pink Pistol, a one of a kind boutique, set up by hometown girl Miranda Lambert. The boutique sells clothing, pet accessories, and also her signature wine called Red 55. There is even a tasting room in the boutique, and there are “photo op” areas where you can take some fun photos. Definitely worth a visit!
Tyler State Park – Tyler
- Tyler State Park – Tyler State Park is a gem of a park! We were there to hike, but you can also mountain bike, swim, picnic, camp, boat, or just enjoy nature! Entrance is $6.00 per adult, and children 12 and under are free. I highly recommend getting a Texas State Parks Pass (if you plan to visit TX State Parks) as $70 will get you unlimited entry for you and your guests for one year. This is a GREAT value if you enjoy parks and the outdoors! We hiked the Lakeshore Trail (about 2 miles), and the A Loop (about 2.5 miles). Both trails were fantastic! Imagine a peaceful stroll around the lake and hiking in piney woods. You will feel refreshed and at one with nature on these beautiful hikes.
Tyler Rose Garden – Tyler
- Tyler Rose Garden – Did you know that Tyler is known as “The Rose Capital of America?” Our nation’s largest rose garden is in Tyler. The Tyler Municipal Rose Garden is a 14 acre garden, and hosts the Texas Rose Festival each year in October. Admission is free, and the garden boasts over 38,000 rose bushes. We visited the garden in February and there was no rose display at that time. However we were treated to signs of spring, and it was a delight to walk around the gardens even in February.
I hope you will explore these budget friendly options when in the Lindale and Tyler area.
