1 - Stay at an Airbnb
I am totally a hotel girl 100% To me, there is nothing like having someone else make your bed every morning and having someone a phone call away if you run out of toilet paper. However, this trip to Waco I totally wanted to see and experience the country lifestyle of the town, plus I didn’t love any of the hotels when searching online! After searching for a while I found the cutest guest house to rent! We arrived in the middle of the night after a concert in Austin and got straight into bed! Come morning we were up with the chickens and cows and roosters (literally!) This guest house represents Waco inside and out. Farm House style, and on an actual farm, with land as far as the eyes can see and perfect way to escape from city life! Our house owner lives next door and showed us all around the property.. peep the photos below to even see Scotty milking a cow!

2 - Eat at Magnolia Table
The wait was totally worth it… Although we only waited about 30 minutes. We barely had time to finish (and take pictures of) our coffees while sitting in the cutest little courtyard area outside of the restaurant. I have heard of the lines being much longer than 30 minutes especially in busy seasons. Its definitely a smart idea to get there as early as possible because they do stop taking reservations at a certain time, but they always have the quick service if you don’t want to sit down and eat.
3 - See the Silo’s
Such an adorable place with so many neat hangout spots throughout the property. You could spend all day finding new corners to relax, eat, or play in. I loved every corner of this place, but my favorite was probably their garden with all the gorgeous blooms. I could spend all day there just wishing I had a green thumb like Joanna!
4 - Eat AGAIN
Even if its just to take a cupcake home with you, you MUST eat or simply snack again at the Silo’s. The place is full of adorable and yummy food trucks! They have so many great things to snack on and share you cant go wrong! Tip- if you don’t want to wait in ANOTHER line to go into the bakery head to the food trucks with cupcakes and grab one of their signature cupcakes, you wont be sorry!
5 - Explore The Town
Shortly after getting in the car and driving around as you leave the Silos you quickly see all this cute little quaint town has to offer. There are so many cute antique stores and coffee shops around town. You guys will love the trendy farm house inspiration all throughout the town. Homestead Heritage is a great place to visit in North Waco, full of handmade items. Be sure to drive by Baylor collage and the adorable bridge! And if you have time they have a Dr. Pepper museum and a Texas Ranger Hall of fame museum.
