Waco, Texas

Replete with Texas charm in grand proportions, Waco is a colorful fusion of its agricultural heritage, Native American origins and modern panache on the banks of the Brazos River.

Discover Waco.

From the fabled outlaws of the Wild West to the pastoral hills of the new American frontier, few cities capture the spirit of central Texas like Waco. This charming city, halfway between Dallas and Austin, relied on cotton and cattle to drive the economy well into the twentieth century, and was named for the Native American tribe that originally inhabited the land. Here, the remnants of the old west and early American life exist side by side with modern attractions like the iconic suspension bridge, the Dr. Pepper Museum, which commemorates the city’s carbonated creation, and Baylor University sports.
