Set right in between Austin and Dallas, Waco, Texas is more than just a stop on the highway between bigger cities.
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. At one end of the park, you’ll find Cameron Park Zoo, with 52 acres and over 1,700 animals.

The best time to visit the city is in the spring, best in April or May, to avoid the Texas summer heat.
