Attractions in Copperas Cove

The attractions in Copperas Cove help the city live up to its nickname, “the City Built for Family Living.” Many of the biggest tourist draws feature fun activities for kids, from the laser lights of the nearby planetarium to the kid-heaven that is the MAKS Family Fun Center. A stay here is also an excellent opportunity to travel to Fort Hood, one of the largest military bases in the world, and learn about the history of the men and women who have served here. Read on for more information on some of the top places to go while you’re in Copperas Cove.


1st Cavalry Division Museum
In its nearly 100 years of existence, the 1st Cavalry has cemented its reputation as one of the most accomplished divisions in United States military history. Follow the legend as it grew from the early days on horseback to the tanks of WWII and beyond as you peruse the Hall of Honor and thousands of vintage photographs and relics.

Hills of Cove Golf Course
With a relatively flat front nine and recently completed back nine with multiple blind spots and multi-level greens, this municipal golf course offers something for both the novice and the pro.
