Low crime rates and affordable living makes Harker Heights, Texas popular among the Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood Metropolitan Area's families. In fact, nearly 28,000 people call the city's 12.8 square miles home, and with home prices below average at about $174,000, it's easy to see why. Perhaps one of the best features of Harker Heights is its community garden, though, which offers affordable garden plot rentals, so even those living in apartment complexes can grow their own produce.
