10 Things You’ll Love About Waco

No. 1 Dr Pepper

You’re a Pepper.


Dr Pepper, that is. This famous drink was invented right here in Waco by pharmacist Dr. Charles Alderton. In spite of the urban legend, it does not contain prunes. Come enjoy a hand-pulled soda or ice cream float at the Dr Pepper Museum’s vintage soda fountain. Cheers!

    Don’t forget Waco’s wonderful arts and cultural offerings; Its Arts Festival, Art Center Waco, the Martin Museum, Praetorian, CAST, Hippodrome, Civic Theatre, Jubilee Theatre, Children’s Theatre, symphony, several live music venues, historic homes, dance performances, film festivals, the HOT Fair & Rodeo (I count that as culture!) and, of course the many excellent offerings from McLennan Community College and Baylor fine arts programs. There is ALWAYS something interesting to do in Waco, whatever your interest or taste!

    This place and this drink doesn’t hold a candle to Dublin, Texas and Dublin Dr. Pepper. RIP.
