It's a small town, close to great schools, university, skiing and outdoor life. With Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University nearby, education is important and valuable. The opportunity to snow ski, hike, camp, bike, trail run, and participate in water sports, it is an outdoor enthusiast dream! Family values are important, education is valuable and the cost of living is very affordable. Cedar Hills has a small town feel, but is accessible to Salt Lake City within a 25 minute drive.

Cedar Hills is a very family-oriented city. The focus really is on families. It doesn't have a ton of options of things to do for young adults, but it has beautiful parks and wonderful walking trails. It even has a family festival every year! It is conveniently located right next to the stunning American Fork Canyon, and it is within driving distance of many wonderful places. This is the perfect place to raise a family.
It's a wonderful little suburban community with beautiful housing and business developments, schools, and parks and trails. Excellent place to raise kids!
