A guide to a great weekend.

19 Things To Do Around Waco This Month

For those staying in Waco for Fall Break, there are plenty of things to do.

Keep in mind that there are endless possibilities—even making the next big PB&J in your room— so the following list is limited. It's here to spark some ideas in your head for a hopefully awesome weekend. The list starts with the closest attractions first and ends with the farthest.

Waco Area

1. Mayborn Museum, Waco TX

2. Pumpkin Picking/Carving/Painting/Looking/Growing/Throwing/Decorating/Singing

Look for a local church or farm that's selling them!

*I don't know what pumpkin singing is either. Just puttin' those vibes out there.

**Also, don't hate me. I definitely just put a picture of my own pumpkin (and me) in this article. But, let's be real. It's probably the best pumpkin I'll ever paint and I love tigers. So please don't hate me for trying to share it with the world. (The 2nd place spot just happens to be empty. It's not mine.)

3. Waco Suspension Bridge/Bridges Sightseeing/ Cute Picture Taking

4. Waco Food Trucks, Across the street from Bangkok Royal

Who doesn't want to spend a weekend indulging in yummy food?

4a. Tandoori

This Indian food truck JUST opened! I hear great things about it.

Mon-Sat: 5:30 pm-8:30 pm

202 S University Parks Dr, Waco, Texas 76706

5. Waco Mammoth Site

6. H5 Tactical

Public Fire Arm Training Simulator

3707 Franklin Avenue, Waco, TX 76710

"There are two simulators with over 700 realistic shoot no shoot scenarios and virtual gun range program. The simulators use real weapons that have been modified to use compressed air to simulate live fire. From zero gun experience to swat level training, our instructors are here to improve your skills and confidence. Come Learn, Train, Practice, and Play!!"

I am all for gun SAFETY. Even if you don't believe in gun use, guns are still out there, so if you ever encounter one you should know not to touch it or what to do if you have to.

7. Waco Downtown Farmer's Market

Saturday 9:00am-1:00pm

400 South University Parks Drive, Waco, TX

Beautiful produce. Possibly a pumpkin supplier.

8. BSR Cable Park

5347 Old Mexia Rd, Waco, TX 76705

For fun in the sun.

A Little Farther from Waco (30-45 minutes)

9. Valley Mills Historical Museum, Valley Mills TX

For those who have a knack for random history knowledge.

10. Bosque Museum, Clifton TX

Admission Fee: Adult $5

Again, for those who have a knack for random history knowledge.

Even Farther from Waco (1hr)

11. Lake Whitney, Whitney TX

A popular place to go cliff-jumping.

Fort Worth/ Dallas Area (1hr 30 min-2 hrs)

12. Fort Worth Botanic Garden

Google pictures of it and I think you'll want to go.

3220 Botanic Garden Blvd, Fort Worth, TX76107

13. Fort Worth Japanese Gardens

14. Fort Worth Water Garden

15. Sundance Square (Nighttime)

16. McKinley's Fine Bakery and Cafe

I saw a lot of stars on this and food, so naturally, I added it to the list.

17. Hopdoddy Burger Bar (also in Austin)

Good burgers and delicious fries with truffle oil sauce.

Austin Area (1 hr 40 minutes)

18. Zilker Botanical Garden

For those who like to walk in grass and gift shops with mood rings.

19. Sushi Junai

I have never been here, but it sounds AMAZING. ALL YOU CAN EAT SUSHI. A recommendation from a trusted source— my sister.

Have a great Fall Break!

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.


You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
