    Chip and Joanna Gaines are the stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper, which shows them helping clients transform a less than ideal property into their dream home.

    Of course, if you watch the show you also know they own and operate Magnolia Market At The Silos, a sprawling compound that is basically Disneyland for the Gaines' fans.

    Here are some tips for making the most of your visit there.

    6. Like popcorn? Chuck's Gourmet Popcorn stand inside Magnolia sells all kinds of unique flavors like cinnamon toast.

    And yes, the cinnamon toast popcorn is as amazing as it sounds.

    7. When you're done shopping you'll want to spend some time enjoying the big green lawn.


    Next to the lawn are big boxes full of things you can play with like sports balls, hula hoops, and even potato sacks for races. There are also cornhole sets, giant Jenga blocks, and bean bags to recline on.

    8. The six retro wooden swings next to the lawn are a blast too.


    Fun for kids (of all ages).

    9. Want a selfie? Try taking one in front of this awesomely green 1953 Willys Jeep.

    11. If you venture to the back of the property you'll find the garden, which is definitely worth checking out.

    It has seasonal fruits and vegetables, a sensory garden, and colorful flowers. You might even see some chickens (which were Chip's addition to the place).

    12. The centerpiece of the garden, though, is Magnolia Seed and Supply.

    14. Magnolia is also ALL ABOUT FOOD, so you'll want to visit the Silos Baking Co.

    16. Mmm, cupcakes.


    17. The cookies and cinnamon rolls are out of this world too.

    18. Pro tip: if the Baking Co. is packed, mosey on out to the back of the premises where there is a satellite food truck selling most of the same treats.

    Cupcakes without a line for the win.

    19. Speaking of food trucks, there are a bunch of them — like Co-Town Crepes — ready to serve up mouthwatering cuisine.
