Of course, you have to stop by Magnolia Market for all of your souvenirs and authentic food needs. For fresh food, hit up the Waco Downtown Farmers Market. If you’re looking for more downtown, see a film at the historic Waco Hippodrome, or take a stroll down Austin Avenue.
Head to Cameron Park for some outdoor adventures. The 416-acre space is perfect for hiking or running on the trails, boating in the river, playing games in the open fields or horseshoe pits, or picnics in any grassy space you find.
