We have always thought of Waco as a fast food stop on I-35 on our way to or from Dallas or Austin. We knew it was home to the Branch Dividians, Baylor University, and President Bush's Ranch, but when we spent a weekend in Waco we found it was much more than a local gas and fast food stop. So here are Texas Outside's ideas for a fun and Wild Waco Weekend.
Load up the bikes or walking/jogging/hiking shoes and head to Waco - you're going to help lower our dependence on oil and save some gas money by parking the car and enjoying Waco by bike or walking all weekend - quite gripping, walking and riding is good for you, so get with it!
Here's the plan for Friday:
Get up! It's Saturday, a beautiful day and there is lots more to do. Grab a cup of coffee or breakfast and lets get going. After all that partying, its time to get some exercise to clear the head and loose some calories - so put on the shoes of choice or jump on the bike and:
Saturday night try dinner at Buzzard Billies (burgers, pasta, steak, or Cajun seafood) or Ninfas for good Mexican - both are across the street from the Hilton. After a good diner, it's time for more of the same fun you had on Friday night or you can bike/walk over to Waco Hippodrome or the Baylor University Theatre for a little culture before you hit the clubs.
If you still have some energy and want to keep going on Sunday, then rent a canoe or kayak and explore the Brazos or Bosque River, ride the trails again, or play disc golf, horseshoes, or fish at Cameron Park. If you need to slow down a little, then take an easy bike or walk over to:
