Copperas Cove, let me go back to the map here so you can see we're talking about here, it is located on the west of base off highway and they call it 'The Cove'. It has more of a country feel. It's a quaint community it has access to the back gate of Fort Hood. Lots of military live in this area. It's a nice place for a starter home, but it doesn't have as much shopping. There's a Walmart than an h-e-b. If you have kids it's a very family friendly area. It is has more of that community feel.
Nolanville is east of Harker Heights and it's a very new and upcoming new construction community with families.
Belton is a more expensive area with larger homes. You'll definitely have a mix between military and civilian living here. Fort Hood so it can take 30 to 45 minutes without traffic. If you're gonna live in Belton you are getting a little bit away from the military life you're gonna be blended in with a lot of other civilian that are just Texans. There's a beautiful lake called Lake Belton. My father actually lived on Lake Belton so I have very fond memories of being the Lake Belton. There are beautiful beautiful homes being able to look over the lake obviously that may be a little bit more expensive and pricey just because you're getting really pretty views of a lake but tons of outdoor activities and it's a great place to live if you're willing to pay for the higher price.
Salado is the cutest little town. It is a small horsey town, east of Fort Hood. It is a very nice area with quaint homes. It's a touristy historic area. It's so cute with little music restaurants and just like a few streets. Great for a date night.
