Hotel and Travel Information



Waco is located on Interstate 35, approximately midway between Dallas and Austin. It is accessible by air through Waco Regional Airport (code ACT). The nearest non-regional airports are in Dallas (code DFW, approximately 90 minutes away by car) and Austin (code AUS, also approximately 90 minutes away by car). Car rentals are available at any of these airports, but should be reserved in advance if you plan to rent at ACT. Waco Streak offers affordable rides to Waco from DFW (be sure to book a reservation if you want to take the shuttle). Ground shuttle runs from airport to airport by default, but for a small additional fee they will take you directly to your hotel.
