HGTV buffs will enjoy roaming the central stomping grounds of Chip and Joanna Gaines, the mastermind couple of “Fixer Upper” fame. Magnolia is the home decorating store Joanna founded in downtown Waco anchored by a pair of rusty siloes, now given new life as a bustling shopping mecca.
At first glance, a home decorating store might not seem ideal for kids, but a spacious artificial lawn area gives plenty of room for young ones to run and play with lawn games, and there are several relaxing wooden swings where you can cozy up together.
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday; closed on Sunday.
