Waco Moms: Moving Guides
Guide to Waco


McGregor is located only 15 miles west of Waco, along the HWY 84 Corridor, just past Woodway. When looking at real estate, some Midway ISD homes are technically located in what is listed as “McGregor”. However, ask anyone from McGregor (or Woodway) and those houses are very much still Midway/Woodway houses (confusing, we know).


McGregor ISD begins south of the McGregor (very small and private) Airport, while McGregor proper is better defined as being south of the Amtrack train tracks, and yes, you can hop on the Amtrack and head as far north as Chicago from little ol’ McGregor. McGregor Bull Dogs are a K-12, UIL deemed 3A school district (high school has less than 350 students when we last checked) with small town feels and activities to enjoy such as easy to join sports and extracurriculars, charming homecoming parades and community events, and McGregor’s hallmark style Christmas Festival “Country Christmas”.

Additional Information

Driveability & Transportation 

It’s a drive, but not a far one. Most people in other cities sit in traffic longer than it will take you to drive “all the way” to McGregor. Public transportation, aside from the Amtrak station, is nonexistent unless you’d like to schedule a ride with McLennan Rural Transit or one of the few Uber or Lyft Drivers around town.

Grocery Stores

There is no HEB in McGregor (yet), but you can get your essentials at Brookeshire Brothers and it’s only 15-20 minutes to the Woodway Super HEB.


McGregor offers several places to picnic, enjoy outdoor recreation, and relax. With something for everyone there are walking trails, baseball fields, basketball courts, playgrounds, a double 9 hole disc golf course, pavilions, soccer fields, fishing and a swimming pool.
