Summer Fun in Tyler

By Holli Fourniquet

Summer days in East Texas are best spent out on the lake. There’s no better place for a quiet afternoon of recreation than out at Tyler Paddle.

Tyler Paddle is a standup paddleboard rental company located at 15898 Eastside Rd., Tyler, right beside the Lake Tyler Petroleum Club. This is a beautiful part of the lake for standup paddle boarding.

Standup paddle boarding is not as hard as it looks. In fact, you can stand up or sit down if you get tired. There is some balanced involved, but it’s definitely a fun sport to try with the family.

Tyler Paddle offers events throughout the summer including standup paddle yoga, full moon paddles, and sunset paddles.

Paddleboards are rented individually for $25 per hour, or there is a large paddleboard that fits six people available for $75 hour.

Tyler Paddle also offers party rentals. If you are hosting an event on the water around the Tyler area, they will even come to you or you can go to them. Your family and friends could rent out all of the boards, pack a picnic lunch, and spend the afternoon on the water. Tyler paddle will customize any party package to fit your needs and budget.

Tyler Paddle’s regular hours are Fridays, 5-8pm, and Saturdays and Sundays, 12 noon-7pm or by appointment.

If you haven’t tried standup paddle boarding, this is the summer to try something new. Unwind after a busy week and paddle off into the sunset for an amazing adventure you’ll never forget.

“SpacePark360” takes audiences on a wild, immersive ride through the solar system, recreating the experience of amusement park thrill rides – roller coasters, pendulums, inverters, and more. Seen from the rider’s perspective, “SpacePark360” combines full dome technology with thrill rides to create a heart-pounding experience.

“Rock on Demand” fills the entire 40-foot domed theater with vibrant graphics, completely enveloping visitors in a 360-degree view while the 16,000-watt, digital surround sound system plays rock hits ranging from the Beatles and Rolling Stones to The Doors and Aerosmith.

Among the melting tidewater glaciers of Alaska, National Geographic Emerging Explorer Dr. Erin Pettit leads a young team of researchers into the splash zone at the face of Dawes Glacier aboard a boat custom-designed to get as close as possible to the calving ice. Using a variety of instruments, her team works to measure the rate of melting to help build a more accurate model of global ocean level rise.
