I have been living in Killeen for 18 year now and I do love that the cost of living is low. However, I would like to see some growth in Killeen, especially some healthy and modern restaurants or up to dates stores that we can at least buy a variety of items from. This is the city of the biggest Army base in the nation but there isn't much to do around the time. So many people sometimes get in trouble because we have to drive at least one hour to do something different. I can admit that the diversity of people here is amazing. You will meet anyone from any nation here which I have always loved about Killeen. It's almost not to have love for some countries because there are a lot of restaurants and people I know that cook really great food!

Killeen is always changing and growing to accommodate its' people. As it is always bringing in new Soldiers every day, the establishments are adapting to make sure they satisfy their needs. Bell County Expo is fantastic! The concerts and events that are provide for the people are amazing!
Very clean, friendly, fresh-aired small city town. Nice people. Great selection of restaurants. Affordable cars at local dealerships. I love that place!
