Clothing for Winter in Waco

by eufreer

Hi,

I'm a woman from Costa Rica (a tropical country) and I'm going to Waco in December.

What should I bring? A coat?
Lined boots? Scarf? What?

I would appreciate any info on this matter! I don't have a clue!

Your sunny smile will help along with some warm clothing. A coat,
sweater, light boots, and rain coat.
The weather is very cool but not
extremely cold. And it may be cool one day and warm the next. But usually you can expect it to be cool.
Go to www.wunderground.com for real answers. Have fun in Waco.

Thanks Will!

What are the rainy months in Waco?

Re: Re: Clothing for Winter in Waco

by williewest

I don't know what the rainy months are. But I do know that it could be sunny one day and rainy another.
The weather will be warmer at the beginning of the month and colder towards the next. Because of the high humidty it feels colder and damp. It could go as low as 30
but usually it is around 50 degrees or a little higher. it is San Jose
weather but 20 or so degrees colder in December in Waco.

A rainy month is going on right now...it seems like it's been raining here for all of October. It usually rains alot in the spring (March, April.) And, our winters are usually pretty mild...with maybe a week or two of really cold, winter-style weather.

Travel Tips for Waco

The Jewel of Waco--Baylor University

by VeronicaG

Baylor University was officially established in 1845 after a group of 35 delegates to the Union Baptist Assocation accepted a suggestion by Reverend William Milton Tryon and District Judge R.E.B. Baylor to establish a Baptist university in Texas.

Fastforwarding to the present, this 735 acre campus figures greatly in the life of this Texas town, for it offers not only a sterling education but contributes culturally, as well. Please see some of my earlier tips.

The various schools offered at the University are:

College of Arts & Sciences
George W. Truett Theological Seminary
Hankamer School of Business
Honors College
School of Social Work
School of Music
Law School
School of Education
School of Engineers and Computer Science
Graduate School
Louise Herrington School of Nursing

Baylor is home to the first campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity, has a Phi Beta Kappa chapter and encourages students to be a "part of the Christian community of faith". The school's enrollment is over 14,000 students from every state and approximately 70 foreign countries.

Athletic opportunities/accomplishments include NCAA Division I 'Big 12' Conference; 18 varsity sports, 4 Olympic gold medalists, Men's tennis 2004 NCAA national champions; Women's basketball 2005 NCAA national champions; and in 25 'Big 12' Conference championships, Baylor is tied for 5th place overall. Directions from Dallas/Ft.Worth: take I-35 South to Waco, then take Exit 335B. Turn left onto University Parks Drive.

A Walk Through the Historic Village--Part 2

by VeronicaG

The historic village's landing represents the manner produce was shipped to and from the area. Cotton could be easily loaded onto boats here, then transported to far away ports, such as, Liverpool, England.

FYI: Many planters owned cotton gins and processed the cotton themselves. After the Civil War when the plantations were broken up into smaller parcels, towns reverted to community cotton gins. Most towns had at least one gin, while some had as many as a half dozen.

The Cotton Gin provided an important service to a town (pic #2). At one time the 'gin' referred to the machine, but later designated the building. This industry was vital to the Texas economy, with the busiest time of year being August-September.

An early tractor (pic #3) sits rusting outside the Cotton Gin.

A Helpful Stop--Tourist Information Center

by VeronicaG

Whether you call it the Visitor's Center or the Tourist Information Center, as in Waco, you know you'll find many helpful travel guides, maps and even discount coupons most times.

Not to let an opportunity be wasted, Waco's handy center carries souvenir t-shirts, keychains, mugs and other memento's to take home with you, as well.

After scanning the brochures, selecting future sights to visit and freshening up in the restrooms, we turned our attention to the exterior of the center because it was ideally sandwiched between the Texas Hall of Fame/ Ranger Museum and the First Street Cemetery--lots to see here!
