Moving to Waco

If you’re planning a move to Waco, TX, you’ll find a friendly city that offers a wide variety of family activities, great job opportunities, and pleasant weather. Since Waco is located in the heart of the Texas manufacturing and technology corridor, you can also expect innovative industrial development. It’s important to say the name of your new town correctly – it’s pronounced “Way-co.” You’d be surprised how many people say it wrong. Take a look at some of the things that make Waco a great place to call home:

What you can expect after moving to Waco​

Great location! 

Waco is located along the I35 corridor between Dallas and Austin. Waco is nicknamed the “Heart of Texas” because of its central location. The town was created around the Waco Suspension Bridge, which was a vital crossing of the Brazos River. While there is plenty of stuff to do in Waco, for day trip you’re only about 1.5 hours from Dallas or Austin for more shopping, eating, and entertainment.

Educational opportunities

Waco is home to great institutes of higher learning such as Baylor University, Texas State Technical College, and McLennan Community College. With these great schools here, you can study just about anything after moving to Waco. If you have children, they will find their place in the Waco Independent School District, which has over 25 different campuses including a Montessori Magnet, Opportunity Center, Health Care Academy, and Manufacturing Academy.

Not just historic, but prehistoric sites

Waco has plenty of fun things to see and do. You can visit the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum, featuring the history of the famed Texas Rangers law enforcement agency. Dr. Pepper was invented here, so of course, you can visit the Dr. Pepper Museum to learn more about the famous drink. Along with great museums, Waco also features the Waco Mammoth National Monument where you can visit the site where they found the fossil remains from 24 mammoths.

Family fun

For summer fun, your family can visit the Hawaiian Falls Waterpark! You can spend the day on huge waterslides, tube rides, pools, and more. For every other outdoor activity, hit Cameron Park. This 400-acre complex offers hiking, biking, fishing, disc golf, picnic areas, paddling, pools, and a spray park. And don’t miss the Cameron Park Zoo, a 52-acre natural habitat zoo that’s home to cougars, lemurs, elephants, meerkats, capybara, and more.

Excellent dining

Waco has many top-rated restaurants. Some local favorites to try after moving to Waco include Dave’s Burger Barn, a “dive” that serves the best burgers in the area. If you are feeling hungry, ask about the Zipper Ripper challenge! You have 12 minutes to eat a quintuple (that’s 5 patties!) bacon cheeseburger, 1 pound of fries, and a drink. Another local favorite is Rudy’s Country Store BBQ featuring melt-in-your-mouth Texas brisket. For more worldly fare, check out D’s Mediterranean Grill which serves Greek, Lebanese, and Mediterranean food that is sure to delight your taste buds.

Wonderful weather

Waco has hot summers and cool winters. The average summer temperatures are in the mid-90s, with extreme temps reaching over 110! Don’t fret though, when winter comes, it is much milder. Winter temperatures average in the 40s and you will rarely see snow.

Getting around Waco

Most residents here drive to get around town. However, there is public transportation offered by the Waco Transit System which has bus routes, the Baylor University shuttle, and a paratransit van for elderly and disabled. As you learn your way around town, you’ll find there are three main areas: North, South, and East. The North side covers the northwest area of town and includes many neighborhoods such as Brook Oaks, Parkdale, and Viking Hills. The South side is southeast and includes the heart of Waco with many restaurants and stores. Oakwood, Baylor, and Alta Vista are a part of the South side. The East Side is on the other side of the Brazos River and includes Carver, East Riverside, and Timbercrest. There is a West Waco, but it’s not very big, and isn’t considered one of the main areas. There’s also a small downtown area near the Waco Suspension Bridge. It’s important to visit the different areas of Waco before moving to find which area is right for you and your family.
