Serene Setting In Cedar Hill, TX

Before moving to Houston to pursue my college degree, I was in Cedar Hill near Dallas. This Texan city is located just a few miles from Dallas. In recent years, Cedar Hill has been ranked among the list of best neighborhoods in Ellis County. This city is just 16 miles from the posh Dallas Downtown. During weekends, I always visited the Cedar Hill State Park for hiking and camping with friends.

What I love about Cedar Hill is its serene setting. The town is sparsely populated with only 45,028 residents as per the 2010 census. There are some beautiful communities in this city. Nearby towns including Lancaster, DeSoto and Duncanville also boast beautiful residential communities. The cost of living in Cedar Hill is cheaper than Dallas. This includes all household expenses, home price, utility expenses and grocery price. Economically, the town is well-established.

Cedar Hill is served by an independent school district. There are private and public schools, charter schools and affiliated church schools in this city. The Duncanville ISD and the Midlothian ISH include high schools. Trinity Christian School is another popular school in Cedar Hill, TX. Many of the Cedar Hill schools participate in football tournaments and championships every year.

For recreation and weekend fun, there are plenty of choices in Cedar Hill State Park. This beautiful park offers a range of hiking and biking opportunities, camp grounds for all avid campers, geocache and beautiful spots for wildlife and nature watch. The Joe Pool Lake is another popular weekend trip destination near to this town. The Cedar Hill State Park is close to the Joe Pool Lake; thus, my family always preferred to visit the site during the swim season. Fishing is another activity that you can enjoy here. The adjoining picnic pavilions are perfect for family get-together and fun picnicking.
