Tyler is a city in East Texas and the county seat of Smith County. Tyler is known nationally as the “Rose Capital of America” because it has a long history of rose production and is one of the leading rose producers in the world. Tyler has a humid subtropical climate, characterized by hot, humid summers and cold, wet winters. Going back in history, prior to the arrival of Europeans, the area was occupied by the Caddo Indians. In 1846, the Texas Legislature created Smith County and as a result, the town of Tyler was established and designated the county seat; the town was named for President John Tyler. Tyler was incorporated in 1850 and became a major commercial center of East Texas. The arrival of the Tyler Tap Railroad in 1871 allowed the transportation of the city's agricultural crops and goods to other areas. Tyler was incorporated as a city in 1907, which is the same time that fruit orchards were essential to the local economy. When blight decimated the majority of the fruit orchards, the rose growing industry emerged.

Tyler has a population of 96,900 and the racial makeup of the city is 60.5% White, 24.8% African American, 21.2% Hispanic, and 1.9% Asian (2010 Census). Unfortunately Tyler is a dangerous city to reside in.

Much of the economy is centered on the rose growing industry and the fact that Tyler is a major medical center for East Texas. The Broadway Square Mall is located in Tyler but also serves the surrounding East Texas area. The Tyler Rose Garden is the largest rose garden in the United States and features over 35,000 rose bushes. The biggest annual event in Tyler is the Texas Rose Festival, which has been held since 1933. The festival draws thousands of tourists to Tyler each year and features events such as the Queen’s Coronation, the Rose Show, and the Rose Parade. Each spring, residents and tourists look forward to the Tyler Azalea Trail, a trail that showcases historic homes and residential gardens filled with blooming azaleas and tulips. The Tyler State Park is the largest park in the city and is perfect for recreational activities such as boating, camping, fishing, and hiking.

Longview is a city in East Texas and the county seat of Gregg County. Longview is a major hub city for East Texas and is 37 miles northeast of Tyler. Longview has a humid subtropical climate, characterized by hot, humid summers and mild winters. Going back in history, Ossamus Hitch Methvin sold around 100 acres to the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1870. As a result, the railroad extended its track into Gregg County and laid out a new town on the land purchased from Methvin. In 1871, the town was named Longview and was incorporated as the first town in Gregg County. The discovery of the East Texas Oil Field in 1931 spared Longview from a declining economy due to the Great Depression. By 1940, Longview was a thriving commercial and industrial city.

Longview has a population of 80,455 and the racial makeup of the city is 63.3% White, 22.9% African American, 18.0% Hispanic, and 1.4% Asian (2010 Census). The high crime rate makes Longview a dangerous city to reside in. Much of the economy is centered on the East Texas Oil Field, manufacturing, technology, and services. The addition of major chain stores and numerous hotels has made Longview a regional hub for shopping. Longview’s history and culture is contained in the Longview Art Museum and Gregg County Historical Museum. There are over 30 parks in the city and several trails and recreation centers. The biggest annual event in the city is the Great Texas Balloon Race, the oldest and largest competitive hot air balloon event in Texas; Longview is nicknamed “Balloon Capital of Texas.”
