Although it has gotten more crowded over recent years, NRH still keeps its charm. It is a great location between Dallas and Fort Worth meaning NRH residents get the best of both worlds! The NRH library is a great resource and even has "The Makers Spot" which allows NRH residents to learn and improve their hobbies.

I have lived here since I was two years old and only left to go away to college for a few years. NRH is a beautiful, clean city with a great education system in Birdville ISD, and everybody is very friendly. It's a cute little place to raise a family in, and the great thing is that it's not far from big attractions in Dallas and Fort Worth!
The northernmost tip of North Richland Hills is actually in the Keller ISD and is adjacent to both Keller and Colleyville. Just 5 minutes way is shopping, restaurants and Alamo Drafthouse for movies. Youth soccer in Colleyville is top notch and less than 10 minutes drive from here. Downtown Keller and downtown Colleyville are 5-10 minutes with shopping, restaurants, movies, bowling, and more.
