Welcome to Central Texas!

Central Texas is located west of Houston, east of Austin and south of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Defined by prairies and lakes, the environment of Central Texas offers vistas and activities unique to this area.

Waco is the largest town in the area and features the Cameron Park Zoo, an animal facility with a variety of flora and fauna from around the world. Flea markets are a part of the local lifestyle, with shoppers able to browse the seemingly endless tables and booths in search of bargains. Bastrop State Park is also located in Central Texas, offering camp sites, picnic spots and other visitor services.
