Size Matters and Nac has the Biggest!


Nacogdoches has the biggest Azalea Garden in Texas, and Texas knows big! We wandered and wandered and drove and still couldn’t find the end!  There are 25 miles of self-guided driving routes through the city and the beautiful Ruby M. Mize Garden.  Walking through the garden is like walking in a fairy tale.  The crazy thing is that the gardens are only at about 20% so just imagine what they will look like in a couple of weeks!

I could spend endless time trying to come up with really great descriptive words to tell you how wonderful it is, but I don’t think you want to wait that long.  So, I will spare you on my attempts of romantic writing and just let the photo’s speak for themselves!

If you are in Texas and want to see azaleas, take a cue from the Texans and go for the biggest!


Famous for my "how-not-to" videos, and typically the man behind the camera, sometimes I’m forced to be here in the “spotlight”. When you see my face you’re probably reading something more technical than adventurous, but either way I do my best to tell it like it is and infuse my opinions into the commentary…after all this is a blog and not MSN.

  • Great post! Somehow I missed it when you first posted. Which, given my location, is somewhat unbelievable. Thanks again for all you do for Nacogdoches and all the other cool places you have experienced and then told the world about!
