Waco

Waco is situated on the I-35 corridor between Dallas and Austin, Waco’s the place to stop for scores of shops and restaurants galore.

The city was founded in 1849 by the Huaco Indians, that lived on the land in the present-day downtown area. 

Waco is the county seat of McLennan County. It also offers some major attractions, five historic homes, seven recreational venues, and nine arts organizations staging theatrical and musical productions, as well as art exhibitions.

The City is the birthplace of Dr. Pepper, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Texas Sports Hall of Fame.

Waco is also home to the Waco Mammoth National Monument, a 100-plus acre stretch of wooded parkland along the Bosque River. The site provides a glimpse into the lives of Columbian mammoth bones discovered in Waco along the Bosque River and is part of the National Parks System.

The city boasts one of Texas's biggest and best municipal parks, Cameron Park. The 416-acre park is located in the heart of Waco, next to downtown, on the Brazos and Bosque Rivers. It hosts numerous races, triathlons, boat races, and more.
