Recently I had the chance to write an article for Trivago featuring 10 great fall getaways in Texas. “Ready and Rarin’ To Go For Fall Weekend Getaways in Texas” includes some great (and many very dog-friendly) destinations that we know you’ll want to mark for your next trip to the Lone Star State:
Waco: Head to the Magnolia Market
If you’re a fan of the uber-popular HGTV hit “Fixer Upper,” you’re already familiar with Magnolia Market at the Silos. These historic grain silos have been transformed by Chip and Joanna Gaines into a national destination featuring shopping, a bakery, a lawn for family games, a garden, and soon a Magnolia Table restaurant.
But there’s more to Waco than shiplap and subway tile. You can’t miss the history behind this city which became a center for commerce when it erected a suspension bridge across the Brazos. Designed by the same engineers who constructed New York City’s Brooklyn Bridge years later, today you can walk across the bridge and stroll the river banks. Downstream, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum recalls the legendary law enforcement agency.
Can’t-Miss Fall Fun
Hop the free Silo Trolley for a 20-minute ride around downtown Waco. Just wave at the old-fashioned trolley from any of the stops along the route (including the Silos) and take a leisurely ride around the district. Don’t miss a stop at the Dr Pepper Museum (DPM), and if you’re visiting in late October, join a DPM After Dark tour for a look at the spooky activities in the historic building.
