I love Waxahachie, it’s not a small town but it isn’t a huge city either. It’s a good size and has a lot of recourses. There’s many restaurants, shopping stores, and grocery stores. It’s a great place to be. Waxahachie is still growing til this day, it’d be a great place to visit!

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.
Waxahachie is a bustling suburb in the Dallas area with many things within driving distance. The Dallas zoo is 30 minutes away and the Dallas aquarium about 45 minutes give or take. It also has a cute little downtown with many shops to visit and popular lunch spots and businesses locally owned. It's the home of Southwestern Assembly of God University and is also near Navarro College!
