What to see in Waco, Texas

Since I’ve been home from my trip to Texas, I’ve shared all about Magnolia Table Restaurant and our visit to the Silos at Magnolia Market.  But, you may wonder what else there is to see in Waco, Texas.  So, today, I thought I would share two must see spots for your visit to Waco, Texas.

What to See in Waco Texas

First, if you love farmhouse style, you must take time to visit The Findery!  The Findery is within walking distance of the Silos and is full of vintage finds, reproductions, farmhouse decor – all creatively and beautifully displayed!   The Findery address is  501 S. 8th Street, Waco.  This gorgeous mural is painted on the wall adjacent to the entrance.

Here are a few shots I captured at The Findery.  I loved the mix of vintage finds styled with reproduction pieces.

This vintage sign caught my eye and if I had room in my suitcase for it, it would have come home with me!!!

I loved the lines of this old table!

The other place to visit is Harp Design Co.  Harp Design Co. is located at 808 N. 15th Street, Waco, TX, just a short drive from The Silos.

If you watch Fixer Upper, you know that Harp Design Co. is the shop and showroom of Clint Harp, known for his custom designs created for JoAnna.  At the showroom, you will find some larger pieces of furniture, as well as, smaller home decor items made by Clint and Kelly, his wife.  Everything is styled so beautifully!  Check out the paper bird garland in the showroom windows above!  I loved those for spring!

The last place I am going to recommend is a short drive outside of Waco in the town of McGregor, TX, – Magnolia House Bed and Breakfast.   You can’t go inside, but it was fun to see this beautiful destination in person after seeing the transformation on Fixer Upper!   When we stopped the Texas sun was so bright and it was hard to capture the real beauty of this charming vacation home.

Magnolia House and Hillcrest Estate are both Magnolia properties where you can stay while visiting Waco!  You can see more about both properties HERE.

We stayed outside of Austin and Waco was about a 2 hour drive. But, we also wanted to visit San Antonio, so Austin was central to both San Antonio and Waco. If you are just going to Waco, stay in or near Waco. We may be heading back in the fall and will definitely stay in Waco.  And, there are several Home Away homes that were former Fixer Upper homes seen on TV that you can rent for your visit!

I could have gone on and on with this post because there is a lot to do in Waco and that is why we’d like to go back!  If you are planning a visit and would like more information that I didn’t include here on the blog, just leave a comment and I’ll email you!

I want to take my daughters to Waco this August or September to visit the Magnolia Table, Silos, The Harps, etc. We will have 4 days including out travel days; in your opinion should we just enjoy Waco, or should we try to squeeze in a visit to Austin too? We are coming from California.

Hi, Jennifer. I'm so sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I would recommend you check out this link: Amy, from Cutor Tudor lives in Waco and has written some posts about what else there is to do in town. We were only in Waco one day and I would definitely like to go back and visit just Waco for a long weekend. I reached out to Amy before my trip and she shared some great information with me. So, definitely check out that link. Austin is a little over an hour's drive from Waco, so keep that in mind. We stayed just south of Austin and that is why we only spent one day in Waco. If you have any more questions, email Amy and I'm sure she would be glad to provide more info!

I saved this post so I could enjoy reading it. Many years ago I was in Waco when Baylor was the big money maker for Waco! Now it is Magnolia! I enjoyed your insider information to this spot. I hope you get to spend a bit of time there this fall. It will have all new things to gaze upon and I know you will share!

Another place to go that's just outside of Waco is Homestead Craft Village. It is like going back in time to see everything from a gristmill, blacksmith shop, pottery house to a cheese shop and more. You can watch expert craftsmen at work and they have plenty of items for sale. We like to take our kids and now grand kids to the Thanksgiving weekend Homestead Fair where they have many booths set up to make your own candles, soap, toy boats, etc.
