While downtown Waco offers plenty of parking, campers with big rigs are best to park their RV just outside of town and hop on the Silo District Trolley. The hop-on, hop-off trolley runs on a 15-minute loop, taking you to all the best spots in the district. Stop in at the famous Dr. Pepper Museum or the McLane Stadium if you're in town to catch a game. From there, head to Magnolia Market, set in repurposed grain silos, to stroll through the gardens, grab a bite from their local food trucks and do a little shopping. A great way to see what Waco has to offer.
For those wanting to take in the sights from a different perspective, rent yourself a kayak and mosey down the Brazos River. The longest river in Texas will bring you past Baylor University and through the heart of the city. On the other side of the river is Cameron Park, where you'll find hiking and biking trails, and amazing views from the cliffs. It is also home to the Cameron Park Zoo, a natural oasis for animals from all over the world, along with a 50,000-gallon saltwater aquarium. The kiddos will definitely enjoy hearing the roar of the lions and watching colorful fish swim by.
Take a trip back in time and visit Waco Mammoth National Monument, a museum and paleontologist site. Visitors of the Monument will learn about the discovered fossils, the Ice Age, and the historical significance of this site on a guided walking tour. View the Columbian Mammoth's massive fossils and learn the various reasons they might have gone extinct. Whether your visit to Waco takes you through the rich culture found in the streets of downtown or to the great outdoors to explore the terrain, this destination is sure to deliver on everything you want out of an RV camping trip.
