TAREI Fall Conference


Waco offers enough to keep visitors busy for days! Bring your family and enjoy a mountain bike ride or hike in Cameron Park, shop downtown where you’ll find Magnolia Market, antiques stores, and wonderful local finds. Stroll through our cultural and historic district that extends from Austin Avenue through Elm Avenue, across the mighty Brazos River. Walk across the historic Suspension Bridge, built in 1870, where the clopping hooves of cattle followed the Chisholm and Shawnee Trails up north. Come for a weekend getaway, a convention, tour, or simply business, and explore all that Waco has to offer.
