Nature preserves and hiking opportunities are close by. Very green neighborhoods and the city is great about cleaning up trash and litter in public areas. Parks are neat and entertainment at the nearby mall is readily available. In very close proximity to major highways. However, school systems are poor and job opportunities are rare. Nightlife is non-existent and road conditions are not well-maintained.

I grew up in Cedar Hill - and it grew right along with me! It was, at first, a small suburb of Dallas with lots of undeveloped land and lots of country folk. In fact, our neighbors across the street had a cow, a pig and a horse - and the pig loved to get out and run the street! Long gone is the pig - replaced by a four lane major thoroughfare And the open fields of cedar trees were cut down and made way for tons of shopping. Cedar Hill is known for its high points in the north Texas area, and because of that, there are television towers built for reception there!
I've lived in Cedar Hill for almost 7 years now, and I can tell you that my experience here has been great. Cedar Hill is a very quiet and peaceful area. The neighborhoods in this city are very woody and nature-like. There are trees and plants everywhere, and the roads aren't busy at all. I love how tranquil it is, and the residents there are very friendly. Also, Cedar Hill also has great shopping areas like Uptown. Uptown is filled with popular stores, a visually appealing and peaceful park where you can relax and enjoy the views, and beautiful decorations and landscaping. The only thing I would say that they should change is the road quality. There are a few parts of the road here and there that could use a little fixing, but overall, Cedar Hill is a great city to live in.
