Tyler's Azalea District will soon be filled with blooms and visitors who will be greeted by a very special group of young ladies known as Azalea Belles.

Each spring Tyler's Azalea District is full of millions of spring flower and azalea blooms and attract thousands of visitors from across the nation. Select historical homes along the Azalea Trail will be open to the public where the Tyler Azalea Belles will be there to greet visitors from all over.
