Tyler Texas Bed and Breakfast-The Rosevine Inn-Best in East Texas

Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We still have one more week officially for the Azalea Trails. We
have a lovely drive through our historic area homes that are all dressed up for spring. You need to come see it. It is really beautiful. Lots of fun activities in the

area, too. Of course, Rosevine Inn the the best place to stay if you are exploring the area. We offer a very comfortable place to stay and a really delicious breakfast. It is a great time to gather around the fireplace in the courtyard in the evening-and participate in the convivial conversations!

Now let us see some of the great things to do in April when you visit Tyler, Texas!

The official end to The Tyler Azalea Trails is April 7th. The events list for the last weekend are as posted below!


Saturday April 6 10 am
The Downtown Tyler Art Walk is a collaborative effort of the City of Tyler Main Street Department,
Gallery Main Street and the Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition.
During the Art Walk, you will have the opportunity to stroll the downtown district,
viewing art and listening to music, while enjoying all the fine things downtown has to offer.
Each downtown business on the Art Walk will host an artist in their venue space,
and the artist will set up a mini-gallery of work for the public’s enjoyment.
Downtown Tyler has a rapidly growing art scene anchored by Gallery Main Street,
which makes this the perfect opportunity for artists and the community to connect and enjoy downtown.
Make Gallery Main Street your first destination on the Art Walk so you can pick up a map to start your stroll.
Downtown Tyler Art Walk venues will feature local artists and performers showcasing various mediums
and performance specialties. There will be live music, dancers, door prizes, art demonstrations, and more!

Ellis: Live, Original, Acoustic Concert

•Saturday, April 13th, 2013 @ 7:30pm

A native of Texas, Ellis moved to Minneapolis at the age of 16, where she quickly built a local following that blossomed into a nationwide presence – with extensive touring and seven albums released in the last sixteen years.
Described as a “whole hearted singer, songwriter, and guitarist,” Ellis writes songs that are funny, poignant, and insightful. Rather than attributing her musical style to a particular genre, her music is best described by the effect it has on her audience. Simply put, Ellis leaves listeners with softened edges and opened hearts.
Cost: $12 in advance / $15 at the door.
**Must be 13 year old or older to attend this event. Website for Ellis is http://www.ellis-music.com/news/
