My mother, my 11 year old daughter, my 10 year old niece, and I will be in Tyler on July 29. We are trying to find some things for the kids to do. We are planning to go to the American Girl store in Dallas on the 30 or 31. What is the best route? What is the best time to travel? I don't like traffic! Also, should we stay in Dallas or Tyler? What is there to do in Tyler if we stay there? Where is a good place to stay?
