Area Code 430 - Information about Texas


I've lived in Texas for quite a while now and only recently took the time to make a trip to Tyler, Texas. Although I haven't visited the area for a while, I decided to take some pictures and make a trip out of it. The summer is here and Tyler and Longview, TX are two places that seem to be very popular in the southern United States. When I first heard that there was a lot of water in Texas, I figured it would be perfect for an urban beach.

Tyler, Texas seems to be getting more popular and the city is growing everyday. I did find a lot of people down on the south side of the street that are living right on the water. Since Tyler, Texas has been in the news lately for being one of the world's worst oil spills, you might want to steer clear of the water or else you could end up with some sort of respiratory infection.

The hotel I stayed at was close to the Gulf of Mexico but it wasn't in the ocean. There were several families and couples that I saw staying there and they were having a great time. I didn't have any trouble getting around and was able to keep up with everyone's every move.

If you are not familiar with Tyler, Texas and how fast it gets into summer I suggest taking a ride through there. You might get out of the car and try to walk for an hour or so to get a feel for it. You will see it has the nice outdoor pools that you see everywhere in San Diego or Los Angeles.

Longview, TX is the town that has a lot of history and it has been in the news a lot for the oil spill. There are a lot of people still living there and it's a good place to live if you want to experience the America dream. It is filled with everything that you would expect to find and not just because there is a lot of oil on the ground.

In the olden days Longview, TX used to be known as a city that was home to miners. If you go in and do a Google Image search, you will see what I mean. It was a center for coal mining, and they had many homes along the water.

So, if you are thinking about going to Texas to see the other side of it, you might want to make sure that you get a ride and go explore Tyler, Texas. It really is different than anywhere else. You will not find a lot of Texas style restaurants and bars. If you like fast food and sports bars, you won't find them in Texas.

I know I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and I am glad that I did, because I came back to see what people's opinions were. I would recommend taking a day trip out to Tyler and exploring the sights and sounds that Longview, TX has to offer. I was impressed and I'm sure you will be too.
