    Help Opinions on Killeen.

    Advertisements
    DF really wants to buy a house when we move to the Killeen area. I'm just wondering if anyone has any feedback on Killeen itself. I've heard it's not a very safe town, and that it's best to buy in the towns surrounding it, but I'm wondering how true that is. I know a lot of ppl tend to exaggerate, and also that sometimes people are right. I'm just wondering if there are any safe/nice areas in Killeen?

    Also: I really hope this didn't offend anyone, lol I've never been there so I'm just saying what I've heard.

    Thanks!

    meh. killeen is not the nicest or safest place in the world. my ex was stationed at hood for awhile. his friend bought a house in harker heights which was evidently a nicer area but idk. there are a couple ladies from hood on here so hopefully they see this!

    Harker Heights and Temple are better areas than Killeen. Temple has some really nice new areas off of 2305 and 317 (near Belton/Morgan's Point).

    I wouldn't buy in Killeen.

    I didn't mind living in Killeen, but I wouldn't buy a house there. The surrounding towns are pretty nice. The neighborhood I was in was decent, but some of the people living around us were kind of shady. The town itself isnt HORRIBLE, there just is nothing really do to.
    Gotta look this life in the eye.
