We’ll help you turn things around.

Imagine leaving your worries at the door and spending a lazy summer evening unwinding in our New Orleans-style courtyard listening to the fountain’s cheerful chatter, playing darts or pool in the game room, or relaxing with a book in the hammock. You’ll have your best night’s sleep in months in our plush rooms and comfortable beds, then wake up to a gourmet breakfast with all your favorites.

Then, we’re just minutes from the best of what East Texas has to offer. Here are just a few of the top things to do in Tyler for June and July 2020.

Summer Riding Camp for Kidschild and horse

Spring was hard on kids too. Schools closed, their routines changed, and their normal extracurricular activities weren’t available. Why not treat them with an opportunity to improve or develop their horseback riding skills while you relax a Rosevine Inn?

Texas Horse Park’s Brunson Equestrian Center has several summer camp sessions available in June and July. Kids learn in their full-sized indoor and outdoor riding arenas with sessions that go from 8 a.m. to noon. They welcome riders at all skill levels and include a lesson horse and equipment in the camp price.

You don’t need to travel to across the nation or outside the country to try the very best. Award-winning local Texas wines and brews are available throughout the area, and one of the best ways to experience them is with Sip & Shop Texas.3 wine glasses captoined June 27
