Waco is an honest, charming city that doesn’t try to be anything it’s not. Waco is built on the banks of the Brazos River, and is best known today as the home of Baylor College. While the school is certainly a defining part of the city’s identity, Waco doesn’t feel like a typical college town. Local attractions include the excellent Cameron Park Zoo, the Carleen Bright Arboretum, and the Dr. Pepper Museum. This last one isn’t exactly the National Archives, but it’s a really good time.
Downtown Waco is home to the RiverSquare Shopping Center, a 100-year-old building full of eclectic shops and boutiques. Other shopping opportunities include the Richland Mall.
Waco does not have any professional sports teams of its own, but Baylor brings Division I athletics to town in a big way. The Baylor Bears football team plays at Floyd Casey Stadium, and despite not being very good, home games are a raucous affair. Baylor’s basketball team is more competitive, and often advances to the NCAA tournament in March, much to the delight of Waco natives.
Waco has a fun, casual restaurant scene that reflects the city’s vibe. Local favorites include Schmaltz’s Sandwiches, Uncle Dan’s Rib House, and Dubl-R Hamburgers. Eat some great greasy food, visit to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame, and take a trip out to the Waco Mammoth Site, and even the staunchest Yankee will find himself warming to the charms and eccentricities of the Lone Star State.
