Things to do:
Baylor bears — On campus they have a bear habitat.
Armstrong Browning Library — If you’re into really beautiful architecture and incredible stained glass windows
Dr. Pepper Museum — Low cost and fun 20th century memorabilia with the most delicious freshly mixed Dr. Pepper
Silos Magnolia Market and Bakery — Delicious cookies and cupcakes
Driving along the Brazos River
Driving from Austin — Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor, TX — worth the drive and on the way if flying into Austin airport, Buc-ee’s is a must see Texas attraction. Don’t miss out on the Beaver Nuggets, their kolaches and Buc-ee’s candy.
Driving from Dallas — Pappasito’s — great Tex-Mex cuisine
Places to eat:
Magnolia Table Restaurant — Good food for breakfast lunch or dinner
Torchy’s Tacos — “Damn good tacos” is right. Get the chips and queso. Thank me later.
H.E.B. - Buy Blue Bell ice cream and if you have a kitchen where you’re staying get their brisket queso.
