Big Sandy Vacations
From Big Sandy, the major city of Dallas is 100 miles (161 kilometers) to the west.
The area around Big Sandy is brimming with cultural and natural attractions, from firmly-established, must-see spots to hidden gems that lay slightly off the beaten path. Kilgore and Tyler are just two of the many other places worth seeing while you're in Piney Woods.
Tyler, is another good place to discover. It is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Big Sandy and offers a wide range of things to see and do, such as Broadway Square Mall, Discovery Place Museum and Tyler Museum of Art. Tyler Municipal Rose Garden Center and Museum, Pine Springs Golf Course and Caldwell Zoo are also good places to spend some time.
To really understand a place, it's often helpful to return to the past. Piney Woods' rich historic mansions are a great starting point.
Watersports are a much-loved activity here. Don't miss the opportunity to go fishing or canoeing; Piney Woods has some great spots.
Even the best vacation can't go on forever, so when it's time fly home, head to the nearest major airport in Tyler, 25 miles (40 kilometers) away.
