About the neighbourhood
The Haley House sits off of Valley Mills Drive, on Willowbrook. Baylor's new tail gate park sits at one end and the Hart-Patterson Track and Field Complex sits at the other end of the street. . We are centrally located so most major venues are not more then 15 minutes from our front door. Everything is convenient, yet when you step out the back door the trees and the creek gives it a country feel.
Getting around
I highly recommend a car. Waco does have public transportation, but many of the sights you would like to take in are not necessarily in Waco proper. Driving through Cameron Park is a great thing to do. Visiting Homestead Heritage in Elm Mott is always a highlight of our guests.
Our home is not far from any of these venues, and Valley Mills Drive is a main drag for eating and shopping
