Waco Suburb of Lorena is Charming and Not So Far Away.

Lorena, Tx: Charming, Great Schools and not as far out as it used to be.

Growing up in Waco, Lorena always seemed like it was too far out in the country. Now Waco and Hewitt have grown out to Lorena right down the I-35 Corridor. You can be there via Spring Valley Rd or the newly expanded Old Lorena Rd in a matter of minutes.

Lorena still maintains its Charm with well known shops like the Village Lamplighter and many other Downtown shops.

Residents also enjoy local banking, health care, groceries and eateries. All of the necessities of everyday life that keep you from having to drive into Waco if you don't want to.

Of course, the Lorena area still boast one of the top school districts in the area. Lorena I.S.D. is still small enough to know everybody at school and always seems to be competitive in athletics as well.

The newest addition to the Lorena community is the Master Planned Community of Rancho Lorena. It will offer residents 1.4 to 4 acre lots who like living in the country but are looking for the property protection of a deed restricted subdivision. Rancho Lorena is the best of both worlds. Homeowners can have a limited number of animals, such as horses or cattle. Many people have children in FFA or 4H who raise an animal as a means of scholarship money for college. Many families find it difficult to find a place where they can be close to their animal and still live in a nice area.

Rancho Lorena is situated on the beautiful rolling countryside of Central Texas, where you can still see the stars and savor the crisp clean air. Take the family on a stroll through the winding roads, feed your horses, work in your shop out back . . . You're already home at Rancho Lorena!
