For this weeks Wednesdays in Waco, I am sharing the beautiful walls of Waco! Whether you want to commemorate your first trip to Waco or you are a local looking to explore the city, capture yourself with family or friends in a photograph of these popular murals in Waco. Most of these walls are painted on historic buildings in downtown Waco, as part of efforts of many Wacoans to beautify downtown. Each one is really a work of art.
Here are a few places in Waco where we love to take photos in front of painted walls!!
Magnolia’s Silos- Side of the Bakery and back of building – 601 Webster Ave
Magnolia’s Little Shop on Bosque Blvd
Side of Hey Sugar on Austin Ave
Behind Magnolia Market & Waco Transit – 8th Street & Jackson Ave
The Findery – Webster Ave and 8th Street
Heritage Creamery & Common Grounds- Next to Baylor University
There are many murals that have recently been painted and others that have been in Waco for years. I have passed by these walls many times, but haven’t captured a photo!
East Waco Library – 901 Elm Street (one of many on Elm St)
Shades of Shabby – La Salle Ave (also one on Junky Monkey & 1715 LaSalle)
