This year, we are having a staycation with grandparents coming to visit us in Waco, Texas during the break. We will likely take them to some of our favorite places around town like Magnolia Market at the Silos and Magnolia Table (@magnoliatable) for brunch. It’s highly unlikely that we will see our friends Chip and Joanna but it’s definitely worth checking out.
We also love visiting the Cameron Park Zoo (@cpzoo) where you can actually get pretty close to most of the animals. The Mayborn Children’s Museum (@maybornmuseum) on Baylor University’s campus is definitely worth stopping by and while we are on campus, we love visiting the bears Lady and Joy who are the Baylor Bear mascots.
Heritage Creamery (@heritagecreamery) is right on campus too and has the most amazing ice cream made with all local ingredients. Lane’s on Austin Avenue (@lanesonaustin) is a lovely gift shop that carries Eyelet & Ivy along with some of our other favorite brands like Jon Hart, Julie Vos, Juliska, Annie Glass, and Michael Aram just to name a few.
Roots is a trendy boutique downtown (@rootsboutique) to shop for clothes, shoes and accessories and my tweens especially love Spice Village (@spicevillage) which has lots of unique shops all in one large warehouse. You’ll find some of the best BBQ around at my friend Julie’s restaurant called Vitek’s (@viteksbbq). The Wacoan Magazine @wacoan is also a great resource for learning more about Waco and finding fun things to do!
We love Waco and hope you can visit some of our favorite spots around town! Stay tuned next week as Alicen shares some of her favorite places in Oxford, Mississippi!
