Booking activities in Waco are going to get a whole lot easier soon.

In 10 different hotels across Waco, there are new digital kiosks that will launch in a few weeks.

Owners of Longhorn Lone Star Tavern and Steakhouse and Waco River Safari teamed up to create Our City Adventures.

"This is like the new age for the brochure rack," Josh Hale, Our City Adventures owner, said.

The idea is to offer one place for tourists and guests to book things to do and places to go during their time in Waco.

There are about 20 Central Texas businesses a part of the kiosk, but Our City Adventures wants more.

"Anything anyone wants to do they can do it from here. You can bring your family and you can do it. If you bring a bachelorette party, you can go drink. If you want to go watch a movie or a live show you can do that," Hale said.

Hale and his business partners are looking for 50 to 100 more businesses to join them. They are offering no upfront cost and no contract until 2019.

The kiosks are currently set up in: Hilton Waco downtown, Home 2 Suites by Hilton, Comfort Suites, Towne Place Suites, Holiday Inn Express at Legends Crossing, Courtyard by Marriott Waco, Hampton Inn and Suites at the Central Texas Marketplace.

The kiosks are set to be live in the next few weeks.
