Five Fun Things to Do With Your Family in Waco This Summer

Summer is such a fun time of the year, and a great time to spend quality time with those who mean the most to you. Waco has so many enjoyable activities available to you and your family and this is the year to make some great memories with your loved ones. Living in Waco, you know that you don’t have to travel far to find ways to have quality fun with your family, but trying to come up with a list of activities off the bat can be a challenge for anyone. That’s why we have listed five great ideas for you and your family to try out this summer. 


Five Enjoyable Things to Do With Your Family This Season


There are so many fun things you can do in Waco in the summer, and we haven’t come close to naming even a fraction of those options, but we hope these give you some great ideas:

  • Go camping together as a family! Camping is a great way to spend some focused, quality time with your family, and Waco has some beautiful campgrounds to explore. In the fast-paced world we live in, camping is a wonderful way to pause and savor the moment. Whether you prefer using a camper or sleeping in a tent, there’s a Waco campsite for you and your friends and family.

  • If you have youngsters in your life, bring the kids to Cameron Park Zoo. Going to the zoo is a childhood staple, and the Cameron Park Zoo is an experience the kids in your life will love. Make some memories and enjoy the wonderful zoo exhibits – and learn a thing or two about the animals there in the process. 

  • If you want an outing that has an educational angle, visit Mammoth National Monument. This is a fascinating monument, and learning something while enjoying the day is a two-for-one. Seeing real mammoth bones is a surreal, eye-opening experience, and with the opportunity so close to home, you have to take the time to see it. The park also has some great trails that you can walk as well, and it makes a wonderful afternoon with your family. 

  • Go boating on Lake Waco! Texas boating is a great way to enjoy a summer day with your family. If you have a boat, there’s no better pastime – and there’s nothing like feeling the wind through your hair out on the water. Sometimes what you really need is a day out on the water to wash away all of life’s persistent stresses, and Lake Waco is a lovely place to boat with friends and family.

  • Have a picnic at a Waco park. When was the last time you took your family on an honest-to-goodness picnic? Pack up a big picnic basket with your family’s favorite foods and go to your favorite Waco park, spread a blanket, and enjoy! There is no better time than now to enjoy the outdoors with good food and good company, so go outside and enjoy the Waco sunshine at your favorite park (or explore a park you haven’t frequented before!).
