The city of Copperas Cove is consistently in the state of innovation. Over the most recent years, there has always been a new addition to the small town. Before, I would always find myself going to the next closest city to get supplies that weren’t available in town when I was working on my home projects. Now, there is no need to travel abroad! The city of Copperas Cove has just about everything you’ll need within the limits of itself. I mostly enjoy how close everything is in relation to my home. The main road is where you will find everything- from fast food, the gym, even the schools. Copperas Cove is a nice the place to live, as well as visit. I know when you make the trip here, you will say the same. Enjoy your time here in Copperas Cove, Texas!

My years of living in Copperas Cove, TX have been satisfactory. There are many improvements that can be done to increase the betterment of this town. Many of the schools here are mediocre but, this town has few family friendly facilities. As a resident, I should feel safe in my neighborhood but, I do not feel very safe at all. There are very little street lights on the blocks in this town which are old and dim which go along with a poor nightlife as well. Most of the food in this town are also fast food with only a couple of restaurants around. Job opportunities here are also on the lower end due to the size of the town. Despite all of these factors, Cove is a really affordable town and real estate is typically cheaper than a lot of other cities. The main issues with this town are safety and renovation. Overall, I would like it if old buildings and facilities were newly renovated and for there to be more light installations throughout neighborhoods for a more safe and friendly town.
I grew up in Cove when it was about 12,000 people. It was safe and comfortable. As time has passed the and the city has grown, crime has grown incredibly. Way above the national average. Not much there to do, but when compared to Killeen it feels safer. Most folks are either here from past or current military service at Ft. Hood. This brings diversity, but also a constantly changing demographic. The schools are average with more attention to sports than education, as sports are one of the few entertainment options. most folks have to live there, or retire there to stay close to military benefits. Very right wing, and closed-minded. Not safe anymore.
