Visiting East Texas & the Piney Woods
Communities throughout the Piney Woods region of East Texas maintain the spirit of the South while offering visitors plenty of small-town charm.

Whether you stick to the main highway or venture off to the back roads, you’ll find countless attractions begging you to stop along the way.
The town of Tyler gets into the spirit of the holiday season with an annual tradition on December 1st. The 31st Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony takes place at TB Butler Fountain Plaza, immediately following the Christmas Parade, which begins to makes its way through the downtown area at 6 p.m.
Bryan visitors and families visiting students of Texas A&M University in College Station won’t want to miss the 2017 Texas Independent Film Festival in February.

Speaking of Texas A&M, sports fans will want to check out Texas A&M Aggies athletics during the season. The football squad will be taking on competition in the Southeastern Conference until December, while the men and woman’s basketball teams will just be hitting the hardwood.
