Cedar Hills is a great little town to live in. It's a community that is safe and welcoming. While the city consists of tight knit groups, it's still very welcoming to newcomers and visitors. The education centers are top of the line, the people are friendly, and it's close enough to other cities and towns to accommodate amenities that a more rural community might lack, but isn't overcrowded like a city. The only thing that could really improve is the amount of recreational activities that are provided. While there are many parks, there isn't much to say about rec centers, movie theaters, and other recreational businesses. However, they are still available in the neighboring towns. Overall, a wonderful place to live, either by yourself or for rearing a family.

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.
Living next to the mountain is nice and there are occasional squirrels who will go through the backyards. The townhome community is a bit friendly and there have not been many issues. Rarely do you see or hear sirens for government vehicles for anything. While it is secluded and there is not much noise from traffic, there is a bit of planning that has to be done in advance since places are a ways away. The nearest fast food place for those up on the mountain is the McDonaldʻs next to the Walmart. Apart from that, the Outlets at Traverse Mountain are nearby and are a fun spot to go to if people get a free day from work. There are many young families living here and the kids are friendly and will say "hi" as people go by.
