Many opportunities for Young Adults. Beautiful area and family friendly events all around. You would love growing your family in this area. Not to far from the city and close to major highways. You will love the schools. Especially the Leander school district. It is very competitive and has the highest ratings throughout the Austin area. The housing market is excellent. You get great square footage for the dollar amount. Another added benefit is the styles are unique. Many builders that are not found throughout Austin are specifically building in this region. The hill country is also very close to the cedar park. Actually part of the hill country is in our (the cedar park City)back yard. This presents greater opportunities for things such as walking trails, restaurants with hill side views. They are working on offering more options for community transportation but it is easy to get around if you have a vehicle. Bikes are friendly especially if you work and live in the same area.

I'm really glad I grew up here. While it's not a huge city, there's always something to do here, whether it be trying a new restaurant, biking at the park, or shopping in 1890 ranch. I will say that Cedar Park and Williamson county in general tends to lean more conservative, but it is not very far right and anyone can probably find someone with similar political ideologies. Just from my personal experience, my neighbors have not been taking corona virus guidelines seriously, which could be dangerous for immunocompromised people, but i cannot speak for every neighborhood in Cedar Park.
This is my honest review of living in cedar park/Leander the past 3 years. I feel like if you don’t have family here or grew up here it is very hard to connect. I rented a house here with a family member who worked at a hospital in the area. I have elementary age school children. I found people to not be very friendly at all, especially if you are on the med-lower income status. Parents weren’t friendly at the schools or parks.the teachers in the school were nice. I feel the heat is oppressive here in the summer and you can’t take your kids outside till almost dark. Yes there are jobs around Austin. I guess the housing is affordable if you’re coming from Cali. There are rivers and creeks around Austin. I have found them usually dirty or overcrowded. Downtown Austin is cool, but hard to really explore with small children. People just seem kind of cold here and to themselves.
