    This was very interesting and I do recommend it. There is not a lot there, but what is there is fascinating. It will take you an hour if you really study everything. The walk down to the dig site is beautiful, about 300 yards through gorgeous scenery.

    I could not get the archaeologist working there to talk to me, which was sad. I wanted to ask her questions. I guess she gets a lot of questions, but she's out in the open working, right on the tourist path, which tells me that they expect her to get questions.

    I am hard of hearing and could not take the tour, so the wonderful lady up at the place where you pay gave me a guidebook which was printed with all the details needed, since I could not hear a guide. She was wonderful and so nice!

    (There is a Pokemon gym in the middle of the dig site, if you have kids or are an adult player like I am. Go Team Valor!)

    It was awesome to see gerrafs, tiger, elephant, bisons, paddle fish, and gaboon snake, and many more. We were impressed with landscaping and how active and well taken care of the animals are. They have a few animals we never have seen before. It is the perfect size to explore for 2 hours. Plants of shade and animals easy to view. They have drinks and snacks wendors.

    Outstanding presentation of artifacts and history. Make sure you stay for the 45 minute movie. A fitting tribute.

    We spent the morning in the park - very nice and clean - walking and meeting Tim at the fountain - he was very friendly and gave us the quick info on the park. If you have two-three hours to spend outdoors - I highly recommend visiting the different locations in the park - all the views are amazing!

    This museum is located on the Baylor University campus and is easy to find and park. They have a large variety of artifacts and exhibits that have something for everyone. The gift shop is well stocked and has a large number of fun educational items for purchase.

    Who knew Dr.Pepper has been around so long. Exhibit in two buildings. Reservations must be made for extra activities that only take place in the afternoon, for additional fees.

    Did a self driving tour around and through the campus one early evening with destination of the Baylor Ballpark to watch some men's baseball. Beautiful campus. Arrived at the ball park and a decent sized crowd. Unfortunately the Baylor team got clobbered by Texas Tech by a score of 11-1, but at least there was plenty of action. Fireworks after the game alongside the river but I didn't stay for the show.

    McLane Stadium is a great place for football. However, it can be really hot in September for a day game and the seat is on the sunny side. There is not a bad seat in McLane to watch a game. I wish that there were a few healthy items at the concessions. They have done a great job with fasti W-Fi.

    It was an experience. I didn’t know that it was still a running religion, so you are actually going into their chapel. While they don’t condone Karesh, they don’t disown him either and do see him as a prophet. Lots of overt political ideology and conspiracy theories are noted around the chapel. The memorial is nice and I mainly wanted to see the site and pay my respects to the lost- minus the obvious. I was a little uncomfortable but now I can say I went there.

    We brought about 20 people for a Sunday afternoon birthday gathering. We arranged to bring our own food and soft drinks for those who don't drink alcohol. We also purchased a few VMV platters.

    Most of our friends had been unaware of the vineyard and expressed how much they enjoyed your view and facility. Most were quite surprised by the quality of your wines, having thought that local wines were not near your standard. They'll return, especially when Monty Suffern plays again as this group enjoys his style of background music.

    Thank you for looking after us so well

    We were part of the first technique called “clean/dirty” pour class and boy did we have fun. A+++ to the instructors for creative inspirations and reinforcing that all ART is beautiful. Thanks for the creative freedom and the extra credit piece! We had a blast- highlight of our Waco trip that was totally unexpected.

    We went to a movie here and found the seats to be very comfortable. We didn't take advantage of the food service (didn't realize it was an option and had eaten in advance). We also didn't realize there is more to this place than just a theater with a whole other area on the roof (bar, I think) which ought to have some nice views. Folks were friendly and we'd return and explore the roof options.

    What an exquisite experience. So quiet and away from the crowds and commercial pursuits. The building, the stained glass windows, and the architecture were all amazing. Starting with front door, you will be blown away. Well worth two hours of your time.
