Magnolia Market at the Silos is a place where visitors have the unique opportunity to see a show they’ve grown to love come to life. HGTV’s Fixer Upper launched Joanna and Chip Gaines into the national spotlight. Since the show’s success, they’ve expanded on their initial Magnolia Market concept which began as the Little Shop on Bosque and turned it into the beautiful 2.6 acre property that it is today.
The property, located in the heart of downtown Waco, is home to the Magnolia Market, Silos Baking Co., food trucks, a garden, Magnolia Seed + Supply, the big green lawn, and much more. There is so much to see and enjoy everywhere you go on the beautiful Silos grounds.
Day 1, Monday, May 20:
We travel to Texarkana, Texas, stopping for breaks and lunch. Overnight at the Hampton Inn Texarkana. Dinner on your own at either Outback Steakhouse or Olive Garden, both adjacent to the hotel.
Day 2, Tuesday, May 21:
Enjoy a continental breakfast included at the hotel before departing for Waco, Texas. We arrive in time for lunch on your own at one of the food trucks at Magnolia Market and Silos Baking Company. Shop Joanna Gaines’ handpicked home decor and lifestyle goods featured on her HGTV show, “Fixer Upper.” You’ll find more great items at the “Findery” just across the street.
Shopping time in the afternoon. There is a free trolley that runs between numerous shops, Spice Village (more than 60 boutiques under one roof!) and the Dr. Pepper Museum. Then, we check into Hotel Indigo, a few blocks from Magnolia Market. Dinner is included tonight. (CB, D)
Day 3, Wednesday, May 22:
This morning we depart for Magnolia Table for breakfast on your own. While breakfast standbys like bacon and eggs are on the menu, there are also new takes on the dish like the Southern classic deviled eggs topped with brown sugar bacon bits, along with new standbys like a fresh green juice and avocado toast. Magnolia Table is built on the land formerly occupied by the historic Elite Cafe, where Elvis was known to have frequented while stationed nearby during his time in the army. The new restaurant pays tribute to the former eatery via vintage photographs on the walls, as well as a menu item inspired by the original Elite Cafe: the “1919.”
Next, we’ll be joined by two city guides for our Magnolia Mix and Match Tour with Waco Tours, which includes seeing some of the Fixer Upper houses and a stop at Harp Design! After our tour, we return to Magnolia Market for lunch on your own and any last-minute purchases you might want to add. We depart, stopping in Texarkana tonight at the Hampton Inn. Dinner is on your own tonight at Outback Steakhouse or Olive Garden.
Day 4, Thursday, May 23:
We depart following breakfast this morning, stopping in North Little Rock for lunch and a tour at the Edgemont House, the home of Chris H. Olsen. This estate is located in the Historic Park Hill neighborhood of North Little Rock and is a private, palatial garden estate listed on the National Historic Register. Chris is a nationally known home and garden guru, designer, author, TV personality and public speaker. He purchased the house in 2016 when it was in a state of disrepair. In about four months, he had revived its splendor.
This house exhibits the major characteristics of the Spanish Colonial Revival style: tile roof, stucco walls, wrought iron grille-work and arched doors and windows. With a gorgeous view of the Little Rock city skyline, the Edgemont House is a much sought after destination. We then continue home, arriving late afternoon. (B, L)
