Welcome to Piney Woods Live™!

We'll help you discover and discuss what's going on in Tyler / Longview. From neighborhood news
to local bands to the best places to eat—it's all here!

Better yet, set up a free account and you can join in the fun by sharing stories and reviews, tracking your favorite places to go, downloading music from local bands and more.

It's local stuff that matters to you!

It allows me to see ALL the options that are out there for planning my week and weekends.

We also like the feature where you can search on certain criteria to find new places to check out.

I would recommend The Daily You™ for its comprehensive and user friendly restaurant search function (I think the mobile function is even better), its interesting and varied local stories, its vibrant user community and its irreverent content.

Baseball, Balloons & Rootbeer

“Combining these two events will give fans more activities for the families and it is a great opportunity to host the pilots visiting Kilgore,” says Mary Ramos, who serves on the Kilgore Chamber of Commerce board and chairs the Tourism Advisory Council. “The pilots will get to see a great baseball game and the fans will get to meet the pilots.” She added.

The "B" Side of Music

The best part of the spirit of Woodstock lives on here. One of my fondest memories happened about eight years ago. We experienced a 12-hour rain of Biblical proportions (nine inches, if I recall correctly.) There wasn’t a dry sleeping bag or tent in the whole place, but when at about 2 p.m. a single ray of sunlight broke through the clouds, more than a thousand people cheered at once.
