To be honest when my wife Savannah first brought up going to the Magnolia Silos in Waco, Texas created by Chip and Joanna Gaines I wasn’t thrilled. Although I have to admit I knew nothing about the silos, as I had never even seen an episode of Fixer Upper. But after visiting the silos I have to admit I must have been missing out on all that Chip and Joanna have built because they have created a lot of fun with the shopping and activities at the silos in Waco. 

After taking the easy drive there, it only took a few minutes to find parking, but it was free to park. Visiting the silos on a Saturday we knew it was going to be busier than normal, but the crowd was not much of an issue. The longest line was for the Silos Baking Co., but every customer in line didn’t seem to mind as it was moving rather quickly.

Guys Can Have Fun at the Silos in Waco Too 

It was fun seeing lots of guys playing cornhole while ladies spent more time shopping. There were a good number of food trucks on site with everything from chicken and waffles to pizza or even kettle corn. There are places to buy beverages such as coffee or beer, it's easy to spend a couple hours here.
