Stationed at Fort Hood? What towns do you recommend?

Hi all!
I know there are already posts about this, but they are from a really long time ago. So I wanted to ask - I am a new army wife (been a civilian for 28 years) and my husband got stationed in Fort Hood. I have never PCS'd before, nor have I lived outside of California. So I would really like some advice!

We have a 3-year old son. I currently have to quit my job, in order to move, so I'm hoping to find a job in Austin or the surrounding towns as Killeen area doesn't have jobs in my field.

Has anyone lived in the Georgetown/Jarrell/Round Rock area? Is it a huge commute to Fort Hood? I would ideally like to live in the middle so we can live under one roof, but at the same time I would like to live in an area that is is populated (markets, Target, CVS, etc.)

I'm really nervous as it's a huge adjustment, so any advice would really be great for this new military, first-timer PCSing army wife. :)
