Farmers Market

David Johnson – 2015
"My family loves going to the farmer's market on Saturday mornings at the park along the Brazos River. They have music, local produce, and we always pick up breakfast there whether it be a hot burrito or freshly made crepes by a local restaurant.” http://wacodowntownfarmersmarket.com/

Shops, Lake Waco

Zoe Walker – 2015
"I love seeking out and trying all the unique one of a kind places in Waco with my friends and family. Restaurants, amazing antique shops and, of course, Lake Waco!"

Outdoors sports

Jeremy Korteweg – 2014
"If you’re active and love the outdoors, Waco is great. I am a part of the Striders, a local running club that has group trail runs in the hills of Cameron Park—also one of the most challenging mountain biking destinations in Texas. I’m also a member at the local cable wakeboard park (BSR Cable Park)—a great workout without the gym.”

Live music, gyms

Jessica Chandler – 2015
"I love the various gyms in Waco, including the YMCA, Gym X, and Gold's Gym. The YMCA of Waco has so much to offer. I also love the multiple music venues around town, where I can listen to live Texas country music."

Antique shops

Adrian Dirk – 2015
"The antique shops at Waco are one of a kind! I like to find antique furniture and repurpose or refinish it for great pieces around my house."
