McLane Stadium

Reviewed By Monroe M - Draper, Utah

I was in town visiting my daughter who attends Baylor University and had the opportunity to visit McLane Stadium. It is always interesting taking a guided tour and we enjoyed the experience. We were able to see the President's Box, the locker room, the press room and even go on the field. If you enjoy college football and have time while visiting Waco it is a great way to spend a couple of hours.

Just for You Antiques & Interiors

Reviewed By MominOC - Orange County, Ca

Tucked away in this small town, just off the interstate though, is a wonderful store. It is filled with beautiful accessories for the home. I completely enjoyed this spur of the moment break and would recommend it to others.

Woodway Park

Reviewed By Mad_Mervyn - Hewitt, Texas

Have hiked all of the trails in the park. They are reasonably well kept up but can be impassable after wet weather. Many amenities in the park which is set up in two distinct sections. Disc golf course is excellent. Several pavilions and picnic tables. Grounds other than the trails are extremely well kept up.

Cameron Park Zoo

Reviewed By Esox67 - Saint Paul, Minnesota

Very nice zoo. Only $ 10.00 for adults and well worth it. No charge for parking. It will take you about 3 hours to casually walk through. Lots of different animals to take in. I would add to your list if in the area.

We had a fabulous time shopping at this adorable shop. The proprietors were delightful and we came home with more than we planned. It is located in the Lorena's town center. Since there are other shops and restaurants here, we made an afternoon of it.

Cameron Park

Reviewed By Jane D

We were really pleasantly surprised by the size and the peacefulness of this park near downtown Waco. We ended up hiking few miles through the park on different Trails. We found them all well-marked, and using Google Maps we could easily navigate them. Check out Lover's Leap eap, and Emmit's Cliff, and walked the ?? steps up Jacob's Ladder. As far as difficulty, we started out by going down a double Dymond, and would not recommend it for anybody who is not limber. It wasn't very long, but there were big steps down and it was very Rocky, and I imagine the Limestone would be slippery if it was wet out. It was a Sunday afternoon, warm and beautiful out, and almost nobody on the trails. In our several miles walk, we only encountered just a very few people. Being from Wisconsin, I was nervous about the snakes, but no one else seem to be concerned and little kids were allowed to wander off from their parents, and we saw people digging in the leaves besides the trail. If you like walking, and you like trails, and you like peacefulness, this is something that you should do.

Waco Mammoth National Monument

Reviewed By mike h - Fort Worth, Texas

Honestly had no idea this was in Waco until we had folks from out of town want to do a day trip to Magnolia. Arrived around 4:15 and caught the last tour (4:30). Guide was friendly and informative. The monument is essentially a dig site with a structure around it to protect from the elements. Does not take long to see and appreciate the spot. We were glad we stopped

Mayborn Museum Complex

The Mayborn Museum Complex brings together, in one location, the resources of hands-on discovery rooms and interactive natural science and cultural history galleries, including outdoor exhibits. This rich combination provides a wide spectrum of engaging learning opportunities for learners and visitors of all ages.

Many of the exhibits are not taken care of. Not the worst museum we've been to, but not high quality . . . Or even average quality.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hours that we spent at the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame and museum. The movie was very interesting and informative. The exhibits are really wonderful and give you an abundance of information about the entire history of the Texas Rangers and its members. I only wish we would have allowed more time!

Waco Suspension Bridge

The Waco Suspension Bridge is the oldest Suspension Bridge still standing in Texas. Built it 1870, it was the first bridge across the Brazos River. This stunning bridge was built with cables supplied from John Roebling's firm, which built the Brooklyn Bridge. Today, it is a pedestrian-only bridge and is a wonderful place to watch the river roll by.

Reviewed By walters1 - Randolph, New York

Just a bridge, nothing special. But due to its historical significance and the fact that it is often featured by Chip and Jo on their show, everyone should at least take a look and walk across it once as we did.
