Situated midway between San Antonio and Dallas/Fort Worth, Killeen is close to Fort Hood offering activities and amenities to please your whole family. Killeen, Texas hotels will make you feel at home while you go out and enjoy yourself; there is a lot to do and see, including:
Completely renovated in 2005, the Stonetree Golf Club spreads four sets of tees over rolling terrain challenging golfers of all levels of expertise. There is a practice area, a double-ended driving range, a pro shop and a short game area providing an area for players to practice 50-100-yard shots.
If your children are not interested in golf, you can delight them with a visit to the Family Recreation and Aquatics Center at Lions Club Park. Here you have all the amenities of a gym and fitness center, along with an aquatics center, a 2,180-square-foot bathhouse, a multi-use pool, a 25-meter lap pool, three water slides and a bowl slide.
Not far from the fitness center is the Texas Thunder Speedway, a quarter-mile dirt racetrack where they claim, “we’ll sell you the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge of it!” Races are every Saturday from March through September.
In nearby Temple, spend an afternoon and evening at the Cultural Activities Center, where you can view art galleries, take classes and workshops, enjoy arts festivals, hear concerts and listen to a jazz and blues series.
If you are a history enthusiast, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco is for you. The Rangers are a legendary symbol of Texas and the American West, and the museum’s collection will give you new insights into the country’s frontier days. The Hall of Fame commemorates the service and sacrifices of the 30 Texas Rangers who gave their lives in the line of duty or made significant contributions to the development of the service.
Perhaps your interest in history goes back further than America’s frontier days; if so, you will enjoy the Waco Mammoth Site, the largest site of mammoth fossils in the world. Guides will make the site come alive for you, and the museum’s design maximizes easy viewing of the bones of the mammoths, wildcats and camelops. Be aware the site is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
All this adds up to one conclusion: if you want a vacation in an area filled with diverse attractions and activities, then you need to check out Killeen, where a warm Texas welcome awaits you and your family today.
