Fun Activities to do in North Richland Hills, TX

North Richland Hills is an affluent suburb located just north of Fort Worth and my job brought me to this city nearly 10 years ago. Over the years, I've become increasingly thankful for the people that live in North Richland Hills. I've made more close friends here in North Richland Hills than I had in my original hometown and in just a few years, I felt like I knew everyone in the community. When people ask me where I'm from, I'm proud to say I'm from North Richland Hills rather than my original hometown of Houston. All Texans are renowned for their southern hospitality and North Richland Hills residents have made my family feel as if we have lived here our entire lives.

If you are looking for activities in North Richland Hills, you don't have drive around town very much to find something to do. Since it can get very hot here in Texas, one of the community's favorite hangouts is the NRH20 Family Water Park. The water park is perfect if you have children that need to go expend some energy on a hot summer day. Mountasia is an adventure park that I typically take my kids to when they deserve a day out. Mountasia has arcade games, miniature golf, batting cages and go carts. All in all, I have to say that North Richland Hills has been an excellent place for me and my family to live. I'd recommend anyone looking for a friendly place to live to move to North Richland Hills.
