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.

Here in Waxahachie you can find safety public schools. The 2015 bond was great to make a brand new High School, stadium and many more to accommodate all students in one building . The restaurants in downtown are fabulous and exquisite. There is a lot of history downtown and a museum is also available .There are many parks available here in Waxahachie and is certainly, a family friendly town. Waxahachie, Texas is a diverse town. A shopping center is required for job opportunities. Job opportunities for minors are scarce. The town of Waxahachie is located half an hour of Dallas.
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!
