Fall foliage driving trails

Palestine Visitors Center is promoting our fall foliage as a tourist attraction, and rightly so. East Texas forests are showing their most vibrant hues this week, which will only last until the first freeze. The Visitors Center has posted a detailed map on their website, visitpalestine.com, and free print copies with complete directions are available inside the old train depot at 825 W. Spring St. in Palestine. For information, call 903-723-3014.
