'Starbucks' has just opened it's doors in Killeen.. so if you need a bit of a lift while taking in the the sites, this might be just the place to get it.

Nature in Lights Includes more than 5 1/2 miles of displays. Stop at Santa’s Village for snacks, arts & crafts vendors, and pictures with Santa.
The Christmas Light display was an awesome sight. The many exibits were spectacular, and beautifully arranged around the Lake. This was a wonderful experience for me.. and I was very fortunate to be able to see this in late November, just before my return to Australia.
Most people visiting Killeen would probably not find this place unless they were told about it by the locals.

There are several churches in the Killeen area, of many different denominations.. for those who like to visit. This one is located in Harker Heights.
