I am not sure if it is the extreme heat in Texas that causes the roads to deteriorate so quickly but I have noticed that there are certain roads that I need a vehicle with really good suspension in order to not bottom out and leave under parts of my car scattered all over Smith County.
The old part of Tyler on East Line by the train depot where the really neat old bricks are no longer working as a road but rather as a washboard -- TxDot is repaving it making it a nice place to drive through history. East Texas road construction details after the jump.
Most of you know that I love NYC! So naturally I watch the Macy's spectacular Fourth of July Fireworks Display every year! Macy's Department store has this huge and impressive display on the Hudson river waterfront every year. I came across this interesting 'behind the scenes' look at the preparation of this awesome display on USAToday.com and thought you guys would enjoy it!
Fireworks are part of the classic Americana that surrounds the Fourth of July. Memories are made around sparklers and Roman candles. There's firework displays planned all across East Texas that promises to will light up the night this fourth of July!
This summer, East Texas is experiencing record breaking temperatures, and the first question on everyone's mind is "Where can I go to stay cool?" With these long and extremely hot and sweltering days, staying cool is a necessity! Here are a few 'cool' places to visit in Tyler and Longview, that just could be what the doctor ordered!
East Texas is a great place to live. The only time we see snow is when the cable goes out on the television. Fishing is so highly regarded around here, the bass boats cost more than the pick-up that is pulling them. Gander Mountain is the Saks Fifth Avenue of the area. Folks around here are friendly and everyone always has a funny story about third cousin on their mothers' side. There are many a small town that makeup East Texas, including Tyler, Longview, Jacksonville, Lindale, Chandler, Whitehouse, Kilgore, Mineola and Marshall . But the question is -- How do you know if you are from a small East Texas town? Read on and find out.
Summer is here Tyler and all through East Texas -- along with the sunny weather comes our favorite part "road construction!" Over the years one would think that a solution to the traffic nightmares would have been uncovered -- but it seems that there is some deviant "Civil Engineer" that truly just enjoys stalling traffic for those of us who have somewhere to go. Wait til you hear Jeff Evan's solution after the jump.
It's graduation season and some seniors are wanting to 'stretch' their new found freedom, and take a trip. Nothing wrong with that right? But some graduates are set on an unsupervised trips and out of the country trips too! The last few days we have asked your take on it, and we got some very interesting comments. This got me thinking, since in 3 years I will be in the same so-called dilemma.
Well I thought I would try to come up with some one day trips that would still be fun and take away some of the stress for parents! (My Top pick's after the jump!)
