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!
Cedar Hill is a great place to live. There is shopping, good food, great entertainment and the people are amazing!
