Moving to Waco

From the Baylor University college scene to vast agricultural and outdoor spots, moving to Waco offers something for everyone, but Waco still retains its small-town atmosphere. For many, its laidback vibe offers an alternative to bustling cities. It’s close to Austin and Dallas – but not too close.

Small-Town Feel With Urban Offerings

Waco is surrounded by rich farmland and spacious plots of land. After moving to Waco, you may actually see longhorn cattle grazing on a lazy afternoon. But the charm of this central Texas town lies mainly with its friendly residents. Running into friends is not uncommon in Waco, and the city has that neighborly feel you may be looking for.

But even with its small town atmosphere, Waco has all the urban offerings you’ll need. There are two shopping malls, a number of large chain grocery stores and a variety of restaurants all within proximity to neighborhoods and businesses.

Less Traffic Congestion and Easy Commuting

One of the benefits of moving to Waco is less traffic. Crowded roads and overpasses are uncommon in Waco. No matter how far you live from the city center, the chances of smooth sailing are good. And if you want to take the road less traveled, there are plenty of scenic back roads to get you to your destination.

Fun Things to Do

Waco is the birthplace of one of America’s favorite soft drinks. In 1885, a budding pharmacist named Charles Alderton invented “Dr. Pepper" at the drug store where he worked. The popular Dr. Pepper Museum welcomes visitors from all over the country to tour the original manufacturing plant.

There are plenty of fun things to do for the whole family in Waco, Texas. The Cameron Park Zoo features a rainforest, African Savannah and flower garden reef. The Waco Mammoth Fossil Site offers exhibits on the mammoths and saber-tooth cats that roamed the Texas plains centuries ago.
