There is a lot to do in the surrounding area.  Boating, kayaking and fishing are only 7 miles away on Lake Belton.  Beautiful hiking can be done at Mother Neff State Park only 8 miles away.  Take advantage of a short drive to Waco and visit Magnolia Farms.  Waco is only 40 minutes up the highway.  There is easy access to Temple, Gatesville and the north gate of Fort Hood.  Plus much much more.  Come and enjoy the green hills of Texas and the county living.
