Bald Eagle gets no love from COW.soon displaced! - 10/13/2018
i was raised in waco tx and recently moved to country to get away from the drama and crime associated w living in waco.But it seems now the city of Waco has purchased land in my rural communtie to put a landfill that willhost 11 countys.This city council has no regard to the residents this will impact that live here.Most of these folks are farmers and ranchers.There is Bald Eagles currently nested there on property that will have no where to live.More details than I have time to write,Waco residents will suffer also,there will be a 83% increase in trash services and taxs.There is no concern to taxpayers money,they have no concern for what the rural community residents will suffer due to all the dangers of a landfill.They do not care about the enviroment, wildlife,people or taking ANY measures of helping to reduce the destruction of this planet.Bonus to add to this sad story is the only recycling center was recently bought by city of waco and now they have plans to tear it down to make Read More

The truth is I never thought I would ever live in Waco, TX. I would say this city is more family orientated. Housing is very affordable and one can get a really nice new home for 110k depending where you are looking. A slamming home above 150k (as they say back home)you even can get a foreclosed home at 60k depending location, but sometimes renovation is needed. Lets face it as like everywhere you have your bad and good areas. You definitely get more for your buck here and gas is relatively cheaper than the bigger cities. Restaurant's in general you get a lot for your money and there very good ones, for me the only drawback is the variety (Indian, Cuban, Colombian and so on). From my experience people are friendlier and courteous especially to seniors. Every now and then you'll get a knuckle head but it is rare. My parents relocate to Houston TX in 96 I'm the only son, so my duty is to care for them and I am SO Glad they picked TEXAS. The biggest plus is Read More

BUYING A HOME IN THE WACO AREA? NEED SOME HELP F - 9/23/2013

Buying a home in the Waco area? (40 mile radius from downtown Waco) Is the home you're interested in, but have not yet bought, in the perfect location for you: close to your job, near a great school for your children, but sadly that's all you love about your potential home? The home (interior & exterior) has problems. . . .. . .a closed-off layout that doesn't flow properly. . .. . .rooms that are way too small & need to be combined with an adjoining space. . .. . . an exterior that lacks curb appeal. The house has serious faults, yet you're still thinking of buying this flawed house. Why???? Because you absolutely love the location!!!

living in waco - 1/15/2012
Waco is very conservative, in terms of social and other issues, which is fine. It is generally a great place to live, but the wages, in my view, tend to be somewhat low. But, so are taxes and housing prices.  Read More

Texas - Born and Raised in So. Cal but happy to li - 11/29/2011
I find that people with this type of attitude will bring it wherever they live. It is best if the previous writer moves back to California, as they are the type we were glad to leave behind when we moved from Southern California 10 years ago! The people in Texas are far friendlier than in Southern or Northern California and the pay in the Southwest is unmatched in the medical field- two reasons we moved here and continue to reside in the central Texas area. We get to visit California yearly, which is great for shopping but we have NEVER wished to move back (even though we were born and raised in CA). The topography may be lacking in this area and the heat challenging at times but one acclimates. We get to the beach each year and ski in NM or Colorado each winter. However, for the cost of living this area is fantastic. When we lived 4 miles from Newport Beach, Ca, we rarely enjoyed it because of having to work enormous amounts of time each week to afford the cost of living. Here Read More
