The area has also become a popular retirement destination with its close proximity to lakes, golfing, shopping, and medical facilities coupled with a warm climate and low cost of living.

Tyler also offers a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables from a number of area farms and farmer's markets. We regularly pick our own at places such as Blueberry Hills Farms in Edom, and the Tyler Berry Farm.
