To get to Waverly, take U.S. 280 West until you come to I-85. Go south two exits to Exit 58 (it will say Sylacauga, Ala.) and go on to U.S. 280 West for about 12 miles. You'll see a sign that says "Waverly Business District." You can turn there, or turn right on the next two streets, said Standard Deluxe owner Scott Peek.

"If everybody turned right on the first one, there won't be any parking," he said. "It's a little downtown area."
