And then back again… of course!
Waco is wonderful!
Waco is where Chip and Joanna Gaines have created their Magnolia empire! Now you can get there without wrestling with a rental car, tangling with traffic on I-35, and wondering where in the heck you should park – Waco is one popular spot!
Dallas to Waco offers a direct shuttle service.
Pickup is in front of the Starbucks at the Fairmont Hotel at 8:30 am on Saturday mornings. Grab a coffee and take it easy while we handle the 90-minute drive to Waco. We’ll drop you off near the Magnolia Market Silos and will be on call if you want to place purchases in our van. After a few hours of shopping at The Silos, munching at Magnolia Table, and/or checking out the shops on the trolley route, we’ll handle the drive back to Dallas. Trips fill up, so make sure to purchase your ticket in advance!
Our vehicle of choice is a Ford 15 passenger van. It’s a spacious, comfortable and clean to make your way to Waco for a fantastic time.
We depart at 8:30AM on Saturdays so we can make a rest stop (if needed) and get you to Magnolia Market at the Silos at approximately 10AM so you’ll have a lot of time to explore Waco.
A full day gives you ample time to stroll through Magnolia Market, pick up a cute sign and a #demoday t-shirt, grab a Lemon Lavender Cupcake or Cinnamon Roll at the Silos Bakery, see what’s growing in the Garden, get some some seasonal seeds at Magnolia Seed + Supply. Don’t forget to make time to relax on the lawn and scope out the food trucks – where you can go from healthy at Luna Juice to hearty (mmmm, mmmm cheeseburgers) from the famous Captain Billy Whizzbangs!
After scoping out The Silos, hop on the trolley that takes you around the downtown loop to visit boutiques stocking everything from antiques to adorable apparel! There’s another trolley that takes you straight to Magnolia Table (the line can be long, so we advise budgeting a couple of hours for this).
If you’d like to see more of the city, Waco Tours offers insight into the city’s interesting history, a trip to Harp Design, a look at scenic Cameron Park and a ride through the neighborhoods of Waco, a city that’s captured the heart of the world! This 2.5 hour tour is a perfect way to round out your experience in the Heart of Texas.
Back To Dallas
At 5pm we’ll meet in front of the Magnolia Market Silos and we’ll load up your purchases, get you comfortable and make our way back Dallas. Recap your visit with your fellow #milestowaco visitors, take a car nap, put up your Instagram posts – do whatever you’d like as we handle the drive north on I-35.
