I am from and currently live in this area. I don't think the scenery along the Central Texas part of I-35 is very pretty. I do think that other parts of Texas are pretty in their own way. Its just that the Central Texas landscape can look dry and burnt out for a lot of the year. Maybe that look appeals to some people, but not to me personally. The people, culture and history of the area, though, I have a really high regard for.

I lived in Waco for six years and was never shot and killed.
I can also vouch that there is plenty of alcohol to be had.
It's probably pretty similar to most small cities of similar size that are relatively close to larger cities...this means the "big-time" cultural stuff goes to the huge cities.

Waco is an interesting subject

Fairly diverse Christian College town stuck right in the middle of Liberal Austin 90 miles to the south & BIG business Dallas 90 miles to the north.

I-35 from San Antonio on through Austin, Waco, & D/FW forms a highly urbanized line of roadway in the state of Texas, which is very evident on a night satellite view of the state.
