The secret is out – and we are pleased as punch. Texas Highways‘ readers ranked Waco as the 3rd best travel destination in Texas – out of over 1,200 possible destinations.
Last fall, in celebration of Texas Highways Magazine’s 40th-anniversary year, the magazine asked readers near and far to share their favorite places in the state for the Texas Top-40 Travel Destinations. Share they did, by phone, email, Facebook, and through letters. Thousands of readers helped to shape the final list, which has been divulged in monthly installments throughout 2014. On October 8, 2014, Texas Highways announced the top three destination, and Waco & the Heart of Texas was included in that elite group.
Thank you to all of our tourism partners for making Waco & the Heart of Texas one of the best in a State ripe with wonderful destinations. A special thank you to Texas Highways‘ readers for telling the world what we already know – Waco & the Heart of Texas is more than a dot on the map. It is a great place to visit, live, work, and play.
