Tyler, Texas is located 80 miles east of Dallas, Texas on I-20. If you are planning to fly to Tyler, American Eagle and Continental have 10 flights daily to Tyler. When booking a flight make sure you out your destination as TYR, rather than a connection through a Texas airport such as DFW. It is more cost effective to do this. You will need to get a rental car in Tyler. There are no hotels next to our start/finish line.
