City & Culture
Waco started out as a humble simple town known for cotton and cattle drives, and is now one of the coolest and most visited destination in Texas. Our vibrant and creative community offers a glimpse into the "Fixer Upper" world. In the Waco Silo District, you’ll find a vintage dine-in theatre (The Hippodrome), small music halls and clubs, galleries, farmers market, craft fairs, maker spaces, and many other spots that are off the beaten path. If this is your first time in Waco, we invite you to add the Silo District to your itinerary.
We believe that dining needn’t be normal or expensive to be fine. The Silo District boast some of the best Food Trucks + Silos Baking Co. with AMAZING cuisine and all at affordable prices. Those looking for a more posh vibe will be happy to know that our downtown Waco also offers restaurants headed by some of the best chefs.
Shopping @ Magnolia Market/silos
The Silo District has it all—from bespoke boutiques that feature independent designers to thrift stores and craft fairs full of one-of-a-kind finds. This is where Fixer Upper stars Chip & Joanna got their start, taking inspiration from the simplistic culture of Waco, Texas. No matter what store you go to, you’ll find one-of-a-kind products that you couldn’t get anywhere else.
You can watch the game while you enjoy some of Waco's original libations from Balcones. Or try some small-batch beers crafted by local breweries. If cocktails are your preferred poison, trendy mixology establishments, complete with plush couches and date night lighting, are peppered throughout The Silo District and Downtown.
Whether you’re looking for an intimate lounge, large music hall experience, or eclectic music artists, Waco has it. Some of the most fun and innovative bands, artists, and musicians stop off at our district for its creative energy and diverse music scene. Take the opportunity to experience it all up close and personal. We promise you won’t regret it.
