Great roads, some minor construction. Low amounts of traffic overall easy to get around with convienient stores near by.
Richland Hills is a very laid back small suburb of Fort Worth, not Dallas. It is great because of how peaceful and safe the environment is. The city council is making slow change, common with conservative city councils, so I am afraid they might have population problems before they recognize it. The schools are great and have definitely improved since I attended.
