East texas is beautiful as well. But it looks like the southeast. Central texas looks more "texan" and still is fairly green.

Killeen aint Hill Country.....its Prairies and Lakes.

Im sorry but have you been on 195 leaving killeen head towards Austin.... hills everywhere. Have you been to western killeen headed towards copperas cove??? Once agian hills in every direction. Have u even traveled killeen. Ever heard of hill country customs located in killeen. Killeen is in the heart of central texas. How it doesnt doesn't have hills is beyond me.

Strange you never disputed copperas cove or fort hood being in the hill country but yet you dispute killeen when killeen borders both fort hood and copperas cove lol. Alot of ppl hate killeen but that doesn't mean its not in hill country. I challenge anybody on this thread to travel killeen and see for themselves.

Not to mention the only lake in the killeen area is in belton which is almost 30 minutes away so no. Anybody on this thread can pull up a map for themselves and see.

just cuz it has hills doesn't mean it is the Hill Country....not all of Central Texas is Hill Country.Killeen is in the same region as DFW.I just decided to mention one city as they are all in the same region.

Actually the dfw metro area doesn't start until the waco area which a hour north of killeen. Look up bell county or even killeen on wiki and watch it be included in hill country which is part of central texas. dfw is in north Texas and killeen is well south of that. Have you even traveled down i35. Have you even been to texas?

I was not saying its a part of DFW....you misunderstood me.....I was saying it is all Prairies and Lakes.Im from DFW originally and I have lived in Texas all my life.Waco aint part of Dallas Fort Worth Arlington Metroplex.I am just going by Traveltex....don't take it personally....and don't take it up with me,take it up with Texas Highways.I did not classify it this way....the gov did.

No not at all. Dallas Fort Worth is in North Texas. It is flatter and has far more trees. Killeen is in Central Texas and is a lot drier and more rugged. Going up Interstate 35 things do not start to look like DFW until you hit Waco.
