This Texas Town Is Quickly Becoming One Of The State’s Hottest Tourist Destinations
When we think of tourist cities in Texas, Austin, San Antonio, and other Hill Country towns typically come to mind first – definitely not Waco… at least, not until now. With Chip and Joanna Gaines taking over the TV, this college community has seen more visitors in the past year than ever before. And although the couple might be the primary reason for the sudden onslaught, they’ve also helped draw attention to the preexisting attractions in the city that tend to get overlooked. See for yourself:
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
