Tyler Sister Cities is part of Sister Cities International, a flourishing global network of exchanges through arts and culture, fostering economic and community development.
 “Everyone has the power to make a difference.”

Salsa dancing, kimono modeling, even antique shopping are a part of our Tyler Sister Cities activities as we visit our compatriots and learn about cultures in their countries. With activities in Japan, Chile,  Poland, and Costa Rica, Sister Cities encourages Tyler residents to interact face to face with others from a variety of cultures. And, on return visits to Tyler these friends enjoy our city treasures such as the Tyler Rose Garden, the Goodman Museum, The Art Museum, Tyler Junior College, and the University of Texas at Tyler, as well as home visits.
