Killeen, TX, sits in the heart of the Central Texas region, bordered by one of the largest military bases in the world. The city, as well as the base, receives airport services from the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport located just a little over five miles from the city's center. Flights from Killeen are provided at the airport by American Eagle, Delta Connection and United Express, with reservations possible through Orbitz.com.
Parking is available at the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport for both short-term and long-term use. Short-term parking for up to 30 minutes is free in either lot, while times of 31 minutes to an hour are charged at a rate of $1.00 in both lots. Additional charges of $1 an hour apply after that, with a daily maximum of $10 in the short-term lot and $8 in the long-term lot. Daily rates continue at the lot daily maximum, with the weekly maximums of $60 for the short-term lot and $48 for the long-term lot. The short-term lot is located across the street from the airport terminal, and the long-term lot is adjacent on the opposite side.
Transport to the airport is available through the various taxi companies operating in the city. Taxis are metered, with the fare to the airport dependent on the pickup point. Shuttle service is available by reservation through ANS Shuttle Service.
Stopping off on the way to the airport for a meal is a good way to begin your journey. The Texas Roadhouse in Killeen provides tasty and filling meals for lunch and dinner. For something a bit more exotic than steaks, Koreana offers authentic Korean food at affordable prices. Deals on flights from Killeen are available through reservations made at Orbitz.com online.
Many of the major domestic and international carriers offer relatively cheap flights to Denver International Airport, the primary airport serving the greater Denver area. The airport is roughly 28 miles east of downtown Denver and a little over an hour from the closest major ski resort. Whether you're coming into town on business or for a ski vacation, be sure to use Orbitz.com to reserve your flights and hotel.
The RTD bus is the primary means of public transportation in and around Denver, so most visitors use a private car service, share-a-ride shuttle or taxi to get into town. Many of the large hotels also offer free shuttle service to and from the Denver airport, and there are chartered shuttles and buses to take you to the outlying ski resorts. A cab from the airport to the downtown area will cost you between $60 and $70, so you might be better off using Orbitz.com to add a rental car to your low-fare ticket purchase.
The summer months are mild in Denver, with average temperatures ranging from the low 60s to the mid-80s.

Layer your clothes in the summer to accommodate mild and warm temperatures, but be sure to bundle up in the winter.
Although the city has its share of high-end eateries, historic landmarks, museums and shopping venues, the Denver lifestyle is all about the great outdoors. Denver has more than 4,000 acres of traditional parks and 14,000 acres of mountain parks to keep outdoor enthusiasts engaged. Enjoy your stay, and don't forget to use Orbitz.com to find cheap flights to Denver for your next Colorado vacation.
