TEXAS: They do things differently in Texas and I like it! A great State, from the bustling City of Houston to the coastal beauty of Galveston and then a massive contrast in San Antonio and the Alamo, a magnetic attraction.

WACO:

Waco is centrally located between Austin and Dallas, Texas. The city was founded in 1849 by the Huaco Indians, a tribe that inhabited the area of the modern downtown Waco and the city is located at the Brazos River.

Waco was the birthplace of the Dr Pepper and major tourist attractions include the Waco Suspension Bridge, the Washington Avenue Bridge, Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum and the Texas Sports Hall of Fame.

THE TEXAS RANGER HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM, WACO:

The Museum contains a wide range of armament, photos and statues commemorating the sometimes colourful history of the Texas Rangers.
