The home of Dr Pepper, Baylor University, and Magnolia Market
Waco offers enough to keep visitors busy for days! Mountain bike or hike in Cameron Park, shop downtown where you’ll find Magnolia Market, antiques stores, and wonderful local finds. Stroll through our cultural and historic district that extends from Austin Avenue through Elm Avenue, across the mighty Brazos River. Walk across the historic Suspension Bridge, built in 1870, where the clopping hooves of cattle followed the Chisholm and Shawnee Trails up north. Come for a weekend getaway, a convention, tour, or simply business, and explore all that Waco has to offer.
But don’t take our word for it! Here’s Chip and Joanna Gaines saying what they like best about our town!
