I am happy of living in Cedar Hill, Texas. What I like about Cedar Hill is the nature that surrounds the community such as the trails, parks, and other places. There is also shopping centers of every kind nearby I literally don't have to drive 5 or more miles to any store. I have been living in this area for 3 years and is growing! New apartment/ condos are been built, 67 highway is progressing to reduce congestion. I consider my area safe and very quiet, police officers are constantly driving around Cedar hill, Texas so that is one thing that makes me feel secure and safe. Cedar Hill is not a Night life area and that's what makes unique and comfortable for residents. Many people I know find that boring. But personally I think that was reduces crime and the numbers of fatality especially at night. Just imagine if Cedar Hill was to have popular bars or nightclubs? It will be terrible for the city of Cedar Hill to be in that situation.

Cedar Hill is your typical normal suburban place that you will normally find outside of cities like Dallas. Although there is a lot to be desired of the place here, Cedar Hill does have its upsides and downsides. It is home to numerous economic development companies that provides numerous employment opportunities to the current residents living here. Cedar Hill is also a boundary line between the rural and urban areas of Texas, so there are two sides to Cedar Hill. On the one side, there are urban malls and bustling neighborhoods filled with traffic, and on the other side are ranches and farmland properties the further away you go from Dallas. Even though Cedar Hill seems ordinary, it does have that unique boundary line that makes the best of both urban and rural districts.
Cedar Hill is the ideal, quiet little town. There is a restaurant to suite just about every taste with the addition that you will never have to travel too far to find somewhere to eat. Cedar Hill is essentially a dedicated shopping town, not only does that mean you won't have to travel long distances for your needs, but it makes it more accessible to find a starter job. Lastly, Cedar Hill is in a perfect spot to where the farthest you will have to travel to find some classic Texan entertainment is a 45 minute long drive. It is the ideal location if you are just looking for a quiet place to settle down.
