We invite you to enjoy the vivid colors and sweet scents that only an East Texas Spring can provide. Make plans to take in the special Azalea and Spring Flower Trail events.

We have additional Spring events and year-round attractions to assure your visit to Tyler, Texas is a pleasant one!

The Azalea & Spring Flower Trail travels through ten miles of residential gardens and historic homes sites. The two trails have been routed to maintain an orderly traffic flow so visitors can see as many flowers as possible. From the courthouse on North Broadway, follow the specifically marked Azalea Trail signs southward to enjoy this outstanding celebration of Spring in East Texas.

The Azalea Belles

The official greeters of the Azalea Trail are known as the Azalea Belles, young women from the Tyler area who dress in antebellum gowns. The belles are chosen each year from area high schools or home school families.

If you are a Freshman or Sophomore in high school and are interested in volunteering as an Azalea Belle,  download the application and send it back by January 22, 2020.

Progress of the Blooms: The blooms have mostly come and gone for the season, but there are still a few bushes blooming. The Trail is very green with other spring flowers blooming in front of the beautiful historic homes. (Updated 4-2-20)
