Do You Agree?

You know, it's really easy to be negative about a destination. You can always find something to criticize!

There are lots of fun things to do in Central Texas in general, and in Killeen specifically.

Here's the shortlist:

  • Stillhouse Hollow Lake
  • Mayborn Science Theater
  • Pfeifer’s German Bakery
