Went to Tyler on Columbus Day for a day trip.  Here are a couple of the photos that I took:

Tyler is really interesting. 2 200 foot towers and a couple of other interesting bits of architecture. It's pretty dilapidated though, maybe some day downtown will start to come alive again.

I used to go to Tyler to do the Beauty and the Beast Bicycle Tour every year.  It was always a lot of fun.  It looks like downtown hasn't changed a bit, except for the gutting of the theater.  Do you know what is happening with it?

I went and looked at Google Street View and it has been that way since at least 2008.
