It's got a thriving downtown with a free trolley to transport visitors from spot to spot, and the Brazos River has plenty of access points for water sports or for those who want to enjoy some time in the sun. Waco is a town that's worth visiting, so slow down for a while and enjoy the diverse pleasures that the town has to offer. More from this guide...

Take a self-guided tour along the Magnolia Trail, and maybe you'll run into a celebrity! The Magnolia Trail was made famous by TV personalities Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV's "Fixer Upper" fame. The city of Waco created the trail in response to demand from fans of the duo. You'll find their restaurant and many shops that are mentioned on the show when you take the tour.

Our busload of women came to see Magnolia Market--they loved it. Some rode the trolley and loved seeing downtown Waco. Some went to the Waco Suspension Bridge & the Cattle Drive statues by the bridge. We loved dinner at Ninfa's Mexican restaurant too.

The Waco Convention Center is an ideal venue for an event that brings together almost 1000 high school students from all over the state. Plus the convenience of all the nearby restaurants both fast food and sit down service.

I was born and raised in Waco, so to me it's obviously my home sweet home. Nonetheless, Waco is growing to where you can do a little bit of everything for all ages, yet small enough so that you can get across town within 15 to 20 minutes.

I loved the view of the Brazos river and the cattle drive sculptures. I would like to have spent a little more time there. I was also on the lookout for postcards but had trouble finding them about Waco itself. Due to the recent rains, several of the stops to see the lake were also closed.
