I have lived in East Texas my entire life. Born and raised in Lindale (go Eagles) and have lived in Tyler for about 15 years. Anytime I have the opportunity to travel outside of Texas, I am proud to tell non-Texans about our state and East Texas.

Now, of course, I've seen the bad of East Texas (traffic, ugh) but the good far outweighs the bad.

A couple of days ago, I was flipping through Youtube and ran across a video from a Tyler production company called Center For Creative Media who produced a tourism video, of sorts, for the city of Tyler. Check it out below.

Longview has a similar video on Youtube that highlights the positives of the Gregg County community. It doesn't have the energy level as the one for Tyler but shows off Longview very well.

Pretty good. These videos are great. If I lived outside of Texas and saw this, I would feel good about moving here based on the content here.

East Texas is full of other great towns. Has anyone made a hype video for your small town? If so, we would like to see it and share it with y'all and non-Texans alike!
