2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Texas Heritage Trail Regions, and we’re celebrating by offering a travel getaway for all 10 regions! Why take a daytrip when you can stay an extra day? This month, we’re offering a trip from the Texas Brazos Trail Region to Waco, the “heart of Texas.” Enter the sweepstakes by April 30 for your chance to win lodging, tours, and meals for two in and around Waco!
Waco Prize Package
Two nights for two at the downtown Hilton Waco, located on the banks of the Brazos River right across from the 1870 Waco Suspension Bridge and its bronze sculpture park that pays tribute to the cowboys and cattle of the Chisholm Trail. The hotel is ideally situated for strolls along the Waco Riverwalk or explorations into the historic downtown, including the nearby Magnolia Market at the Silos.
- Guided excursion by Waco Wine Tours to three local vineyards and wineries, including transportation, service, wine tastings, bottled water, and a picnic lunch.
- Free admission to the Mayborn Museum Complex, where you can view objects Baylor University has been collecting since 1857 (making it the oldest continually operating museum in the state, according to the Handbook of Texas), as well as natural and cultural history exhibits and the collection of structures in its Historic Village.
- Tickets to “Salado Legends” at Tablerock of Salado, located about 50 miles south of Waco. Known as “Central Texas’ favorite outdoor musical drama,” the play depicts life in the area in the 1850s. Dinner is also included with this beloved annual event that takes place only three nights this year: You’ll have to pick from July 21, July 28, or August 4.
