Poem: Kyle, Texas
by: Jess Dean Huber

You're driving down the road
And you're wearing a frown 
You're headed for your goal 
In this little town 
People going the other way 
Are all wearing a smile 
Welcoming you to stay
In the little town of Kyle
They're all waving at you 
You don't know who they are 
Now you're curious, not blue 
Who is in that other car 
But don't worry about that man 
Just wave at them and smile 
And remember if you can 
You're in the town of Kyle
There's Kathy and Shelley and Little Diane 
And don't forget about Wayne 
Just try if you can 
So forget about your troubles 
And try to smile and wave to the people, 
The people of Kyle.

Kyle is the fifth fastest growing city in the state of Texas and home to Plum Creek, 2006 Master Planned Community of the Year. Historically tied and building our future, Kyle is striving to maintain the small Town Texas charm while positioning itself to be a vital part of the corridor economic development. A gateway to the Hill Country, Kyle is just a few miles away from many natural attractions, shopping and historic landmarks.

Directions to the Kyle Area Visitor's Center: From the North exit 213, turn right at Center Street. From the south exit 213 turn left at Center Street. We are located at the corner of Center and Front Streets in the Train Depot building.
