Such a great town in a great location! Waxahachie has a wonderful school district with good academics, and an amazing football team. It is always a good time at the games especially at the Battle of 287. Our soccer team is pretty good and it is so much fun to see them battle Red Oak. We have great out of school sports associations like the Waxahachie Soccer association and more. The people of Waxahachie are friendly and I feel safe here. As the town is growing in size, new restaurants and stores are popping up all over town. We have a Walmart, Academy, Walgreens, Target and many more. The town is surely growing, but I still feel super safe and at happy here.
Review Waxahachie
Waxahachie has everything I need! From shopping and restaurants, to family friendly activities and tons of hometown spirit. It manages to provide everything you can find in a larger city, but with a quaint small town feel. Loads of history, a beautiful downtown with cute boutiques, lots of locally owned dining venues, and the best sense of community. It just feels like home!
Waxahachie is a quaint little town 30 miles south of Dallas. It is a great place for young families to move. It is an up and coming town. There are new shops and restaurants being built every year. The downtown area is the biggest draw. There are many local shops and places to eat that allow visitors to have a small-town feel. Another attraction is Scarborough Faire which occurs during April and May and in the fall, turns into Screams Theme Park. Waxahachie is a central town located in between Dallas, Waco, Corsicana, and Fort Worth. Visitors can always find something to enjoy in Waxahachie.
