The only rose for most Texans is the yellow rose. Where does this flower of myth and song bloom? If anywhere, it blooms in Tyler. The state's rose-growing capital exports thousands of rose bushes around the world annually. The city's municipal gardens offer an enticing place to begin a tour of this east Texas town. The Texas Rose Festival in October and the Azalea Trail in March are especially good times to head for Tyler. Once your olfactory nerves are sated with the flower's intoxicating aroma, you can also check out the city's other sights, which include an art museum, historic homes, and a noteworthy zoo.
