We have hiking trails, ice cream parlors, food from all over the world, malls, entertainment and more. And being a mom of two toddlers there's even entertainment for them. I love Killeen.
Killeen Resident
There are many places to eat and things to do. With a nice sized mall and a few little lakes, there is plenty for everyone. There is a lot of different cultures here due to the military base so there is always something new to try.
Killeen Resident
Killeen is a very open-minded melting pot of a town. It's next to a huge military base called Fort Hood. The base brings in diverse people from all over the world, creating a rich and interesting cultural experience.
