Waco is experiencing a renaissance. Economically, culturally, spiritually and physically, this city is changing. Since 2011, we have seen a massive inflow of tourists, students, families and young professionals. This once drive-thru town has turned into a destination not only to get an education but also to start your career, raise a family and to visit some of the coolest converted corn silos in the nation.
We’ve dug up one-of-a-kind national monuments, revitalized a downtown area destroyed by one of the worst tornadoes in recorded U.S. history, and we’ve been accepted faster than any other community for being designated as a cultural arts district in the state of Texas.
Needless to say, this is the time to be in Waco. This city is perfectly located between Austin and Dallas and it also has one of the most competitive cost-of-livings for people in Texas. You get the perfect cross between small town prices and big city living. You can experience our thriving downtown urbanism, grandiose star-filled night skies, 416 acres of beautiful greenery and parks and you’ll meet some of the greatest people in the country.
Our past is important.
There’s no getting past that Waco, TX has been through some horrible tragedies in our history. But because of those hard times, this community has bound together and these amazing stories and developments that have occurred over the last 5 years are simply results of the resiliency of it’s people. Waco is finally seeing the renaissance it deserves.
Our future is even better.
If you’re a Wacoan, you already know how proud you feel to be a part of such an amazing community. If you’re visiting Waco or on your way to, then we are excited to share with you all of the amazing things our community has for you.
Wacobound exists to “share the culture that binds our community together and to welcome those who are bound to join us.” We hope you love our city as much as we do and that we can show you what it means to be #wacobound.
