Instead of turning North on Tower Drive, proceed West until the first street you can turn South [left] on [Ceba Ln]. Turn left here. The big sprawling building to your left is CEBA and the lab is 1302 -- about the center of the complex.) with a purple path.
Just West of the Comfort Inn (across the street) is a really good place to eat - TJ Ribs. They have great ribs, steaks, etc. Just South of the interstate is an Outback and a Lone Star Steak House.
One block to the east of the Comfort Inn (get on the interstate going east and get back off) is College Drive. If you go south on College Drive, you will find Taco Bell, IHOP, McDonalds and several others. You will also find a Walmart here.
