A Rosey Spring Break

By Peter Stefo -- Eagle Staff Writer

Over spring break I spent time in Texas with my family. We stayed at a hotel that happens to be right beside the city of Tyler.

Tyler, Texas is a city in Eastern Texas that is known for something very special: flowers. Tyler is known as the Rose City and claims it is the rose capital of the entire world. Tyler has a massive rose garden that has 400 different kinds of roses. It is an amazing experience for flower experts and people who know nothing about flowers alike.

I personally have never been a big flower person but seeing this has really opened my eyes to the beauty of them. It should definitely be on the bucket list of anyone looking to travel to Texas.
