Let me show you around

I live in a town that until a few years ago was only a place people stopped off to grab some food while traveling on I-35 between Dallas and Austin. Over the past few years, due to Baylor and the TV show Fixer Upper, Waco has grown into quite the tourist destination. I'm here to show you around, so that you don't have to come!

First up, McLane Stadium:

Next you might want some coffee: 

                                   This is Dichotomy (the best coffee in town) and also 
                                    Sergio's (the best taco truck in town)

While downtown, check out the lone part of our skyline, the Alico building:
This was built in 1910 for the Amicable Life Insurance Company and was one of the few buildings to fully survive the 1953 tornado that destroyed most of downtown. 

You may think you want to visit Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Market and Silos
and I'll tell you that it's really just overpriced homewares you could find in any local small town store or Anthropologie:

The only thing to truly go to the Silos for is the food trucks!

Next we have Common Grounds, the second best coffee in town and a place I've been going since I was in high school:

Growing up, I hated Waco and couldn't wait to leave. We did leave for a few years, but we're back and have actually grown to love our little city.

  1. Wow! And now I feel like I've been there. ;) Or at the very least I know exactly where to get my coffee if I visit!
