20 Instagram Worthy Walls of Waco, Texas: A Scavenger Hunt for Murals After Visiting Magnolia Market

You all know how much I love Waco, Texas but did you know I also love a good painted mural wall too? I'm kind of obsessed and I've been hunting them down in nearly every town I visit. I love how an otherwise blank wall that could be an eye sore can easily be turned into an artistic backdrop. Last time I was in Waco, I did my best to hunt down every mural wall I could. I know more and more are popping up all the time, {so much so, that I had to send out my son and his girlfriend to find a few!} but this list should keep you busy for a bit and as you check them off, you just might find a new hidden gem you didn't know existed.

1. Magnolia Market

601 Webster Ave, Waco, TX
Of course you are stopping at Magnolia Market when you are in Waco {duh!} but don't miss this wall! This wall used to be something you had to walk past when the store first opened, but with a different parking situation now, you may not find yourself on the right side of this hand painted sign. Walk around to the back of the building where the main entrance is and you will find this wall.

2. Silos Baking Co.
Just inside the Magnolia Market bakery, you will find a beautiful white subway tile wall and not really a mural, but a rotating letter board. It's a fun Instagram shot from inside.  Once you step outside you will find another mural on the side of the building, this one with stools lined up ready for your shot.
