Visiting the Magnolia Silos and Magnolia Table on our recent RV travel trip.
One of our most memorable RV travel trips to date was to Waco, Texas to visit The Magnolia Silos. Over the years I became addicted to the show ‘Fixer Upper’ and the amazing designs of Joanna Gaines. I would binge watch episodes with my son and daughter-in-law, and dream of one day having Joanna design a house for me. Of course, this was before I met Bill, and we moved into a 21′ RV!
When we took a temporary job in El Paso, TX, I knew this was my opportunity to visit Waco. Waco was out of the way, but Bill was happy to add the destination to our trip.
We started our Magnolia day off with breakfast at Magnolia Table. As we arrived at the front door of the restaurant, the doors were opened for us by two lovely employees and we were warmly welcomed.
The restaurant was simply breathtaking. From the wall décor to the menu presentation, you could tell Joanna took the time to make sure every detail had her touch, and boy did it.
Bill & I both ordered the French Toast breakfast that was highly recommended in all of the reviews we read. We were shocked at the amount of food that was so beautifully presented to us. Along with our french toast (with strawberry butter) our order came with 2 eggs, peppered bacon and the most amazing homemade tater tots! The tater tots along would have been enough to fill me up!
We both managed to stuff ourselves full of the delicious breakfast. Everything was perfect. The service, presentation, taste, and atmosphere made this one of the best restaurant experiences we’ve had.
Next, we headed to the Magnolia Silos. If you’re not familiar, Chip & Joanna Gaines purchased the silos and re-purposed the property that now houses The Magnolia Market, The Silos Baking Co., and Magnolia Seed & Supply and it has become a vacation destination for families from all over the world.
We found it truly amazing what they did with the property. We spent time just strolling around the grounds, looking at every detail that was decorated to perfection. In the center of the grounds, there is an area for the kids to play corn hole, kick a soccer ball around, or just run and be kids!
The property is lined with food trucks and picnic tables where your family can relax and enjoy great food, or simply relax and enjoy watching the children play.
Because Bill & I live in a small space, our shopping was focused on gifts for our children. Everyone got something special from the Magnolia Market, and Bill & I got something special from the Silos Baking Co.
During our time at The Silos, we noticed that each employee we came in contact with was not only friendly and helpful, they actually took the time to have a genuine conversation with us.
Our Magnolia day turned out to be one of the best RV travel trips we’ve taken to date. If you’re in the Waco area, we definitely recommend a visit to both the Silos and Magnolia Table.
