Travel Tips for Waco

Visitor Information Centre

by keeweechic

Visitor Information Centre is a must to visit first to collect all the info, maps and guides on what there is to see in Waco. The lady there was very helpful. The centre is right next to the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame and Museum. I-35 at University Parks Drive, Waco.
. Waco was a discovery by accident. The trip down that way was unplanned but what we saw in our first short visit, inspired us to go back and search for more.

Waco's Suspension Bridge, River Walk & Parks

by VeronicaG

Tucked between two city parks, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Park on the east side and Indian Spring Park on the west side, you'll find WACO SUSPENSION BRIDGE, once the longest single-span suspension bridge 'west of the Mississippi'.

The cables holding it in place were obtained from John Roebling Company, of Brooklyn Bridge fame. This historic bridge was finished in 1870 and was a main transport route at the time. It's a beauty, for it adorns the Brazos like a silvery tiara.

We parked our car nearby, then investigated Indian Spring Park and the Peace Officers Memorial, where the River Walk begins (pic #2). As the guys peered down from above, I followed the ramp to the walkway edging the Brazos River and came upon a couple perched on a bench feeding some ducks.

After snapping a few pictures, I scrambled back up and we strolled across the bridge, now open to pedestrian traffic only.

Below us the river slowly drifted by, on its shores were the remains of broken branches and pockets of litter. How disapointing to see the trash! Two jetskis whizzed passed and two motorboats splashed by, but other than this, there was no other traffic on the river.

A elevated viewing platform marked Martin Luther King, Jr. park (pic #3), which seemed to be a nicely landscaped area. A River Walk is planned for this side of the river, as well.

Parties and special events can be booked here by calling the City of Waco Parks and Recreation Dept. 254-750-8080.

Waco Suspension Bridge

by keeweechic

Waco Suspension Bridge was built in 1870 as a pedestrian and wagon crossing bridge. It became the vital route by which much of the great Western movement passed, including the Chisholm Trail. It was the first suspension bridge in Texas and at the time, it was likely to have been the longest suspension bridge in the world (13 years before the Brooklyn Bridge). It is in use today as pedestrian crossing of Brazos River.
