Summer vacation is winding down, but the Texas summer heat wave is just beginning to crank up the intensity. There are many ways to try to beat the heat, but at University Edge our personal favorites are cold treats! There are plenty of places to go in Waco to grab  ice cream, but here are some of our personal favorites:

Heritage Creamery: A popular choice for Baylor students, Heritage Creamery is located on 8th street directly next to Common Grounds. Known for its locally sourced Ice Cream, Heritage has a revolving menu that provides unique and delicious options year round.
