Spend Time at the Tyler Rose Garden Center This Fall

October 18, 2016 9:01 am

One of the most beautiful places in Tyler is the oft-overlooked Tyler Rose Garden Center. Open daily, the rose garden displays stunning flowers in all different colors. There are more than 38,000 rose bushes throughout the gardens and more than 500 different rose varieties to boot. The grounds are not only covered with beautiful roses but also fountains, benches for relaxing, and other serene scenery. The rose garden is truly a must-see attraction for residents of Tyler. Luckily, the attraction is just 10 minutes from Orion at the Cascades.

There is no cost to enter the gardens, and many people also spend time at the on-site Tyler Rose Museum, which focuses on the rose industry in Texas, and the gift shop. The gift shop is full of rose-themed memorabilia that you will want to take home. Don't miss this great attraction this season!

Have Fun and Do Good at the Bowling for Rhinos Event

October 11, 2016 10:02 am

For more than 50 million years, rhinos have roamed the earth. So it should come as a shock that they might not be around for the next turn of the century. In fact, rhinos could be extinct within a mere 50 years. Their risk of extinction is so urgent that the East Texas American Association of Zoo Keepers decided to do something about it: Bowling for Rhinos.

This fun fundraiser was designed to raise money for this quickly dwindling species by entertaining Tyler residents for the evening at Green Acres Bowl. Buy a ticket to the event if you want to be part of the fun. There are two time slots during which you can bowl, and a ticket earns you two games, shoe rentals, and a raffle ticket, which could result in a cool prize to take home.

Bowling for Rhinos
When: 5 – 9:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 22
Where: Green Acres Bowl, 2311 E SE Loop 323, Tyler, TX 75703
Cost: $14
