Flint TX

Flint-CityThere’s a small community just South of Tyler on F.M. 2493 that may be one of the best-kept secrets in East Texas. It started out with a misspelling.

In the late 1800’s local landowner Robert Flynt settled near the shores of Lake Palestine. The postmaster misspelled the name on his postal application, and since then it’s been spelled “Flint.” It’s still a small community, but homes for sale in Flint Tx are in demand. Buyers search Flint Texas real estate for acreage, lakefront property, and attractive homes.

Flint and Lake Palestine

Flint’s west side sprawls along the blue shores of Lake Palestine, and lakefront homes for sale in Flint Texas face one stunning sunset after another. The lake is like a sparkling gem covering more than 26,500 acres. It has some of the best fishing in the state.

Largemouth bass tournaments draw fishermen year after year. There’s wide open deep water and secluded coves for crappie and trophy-sized catfish. The manmade lake has room for boating and skiing with coves that protect anglers from wind.

Flint’s Indoor Waterpark

During the dog days of summer it’s too hot to think of going outside. East Texas winters are rainy and cold. Flint gives families an escape from the weather at the area’s only year-round indoor waterpark.

The Waterpark at Villages Resort has a lazy river, 3-story waterslides, a water playground with an enormous dump bucket and plenty of other kid-safe areas to run and play.
