North Richland Hills has an awesome cost of living. We live in an almost brand new three bedroom, two and a half bath, 2100 square foot house in a neighborhood with bike trails and parks, near a brand new library and elementary school. Our house cost $210,000 brand new. There is not a lot of culture here, but Dallas and Fort Worth are both about 30 minutes away.

North Richland Hills, TX (HONEST) - 2/2/2010

You know, its actually not that bad here.. I have lived in and around NRH/HEB for around 10 years and I LOVE HOW EVERYTHING IS SOO CLOSE BY. Its very close to Dallas and Downtown Fort Worth. If you are single and looking for an apt its around $550.00+ its close to a lot of places. A lot of restaurants are here, the mall (if you pay retail LOL), shops, grocery stores, there are 2 wal-mart's within 5 minutes from each other. There are always the (GOOD&BAD) of every place you live. Honestly North Richland Hills has A LOT TO OFFER. If you LOVE THE "NIGHT LIFE" as in DANCE CLUBS/BARS YOU WILL NEED TO GO TO DALLAS OR DOWNTOWN DALLAS IF YOU WANT TO HAVE FUN AND NOT END UP IN A HOLE IN THE WALL PLACE!! If you don't mind the Smaller Local places where people gather then I would check them out in DOWNTOWN FORT WORTH. I AM A CITY BOY. BUT I DON'T LIKE THE "CONGESTION" OF LIVING IN THE CITY so NRH is great. There are many places to go for shopping for everyday stuff besides the wal-mart, there is a Target right off of the freeway. HONESTLY I THINK THERE ARE WAAAYYYY TOOOO MUCH COPS DRIVING AROUND AT NIGHT. I DON'T LIKE BEING HASTLED,, (I always have all of my paperwork in order) But, the cops here always TRY TO GET YOU SPEEDING MORE THAN ANYWHERE ELSE, PERIOD!! Living here you would think maybe the cops would spend more time trying to catch THE DRUG DEALERS/SELLERS OR THIEVES.. I work in Hurst and Everyday I see atleast 2 COPS on my way to or on my way home from work. (I LIVE IN NRH AND LIVE LIKE 5 MINUTES FROM HURST). Oh yeah, like someone else said about the COPS at night... If you are driving at night you'll see atleast 3-4 LOL!! Haltom City is GHETTO.. But, they have the BEST "CHINA TOWN" thats what I call it. Its actually Vietnamese Culture. My mother's from Bangkok Thailand so I can appreciate the MUCH NEEDED SPICES from Nguyen or the Vietnam Plaza! haha Anyhow, there usually is something you can get yourself into around here just stay away from the Small Plaza Stips you see. Seriously, who buys Tripple Scented Candles or American Country Decor these days in suburbs!?? HELLO, UGLY! THIS IS NOT MISSOURI OR TENNESSEE. If you are planing on moving to NRH YOU WILL MOST LIKELY 100% ENJOY YOUR STAY. :)

I like it - 6/18/2009

I've lived here for about 4 years. This is a pretty decent place to live. The only downfall is that it's next to Haltom City which is kind of scary. There are cops everywhere at night so I suppose I feel pretty safe. It's close to Ft Worth and not to far from Dallas.

Eternal Sunshine and Little Else - 8/8/2007

We recently moved to North Richland Hills from Missouri and are enjoying the fabulous weather. It rained for a few brief periods for the first two weeks and then it has been warm and sunny. However, we feel that the housing is quite ugly and utilities are high. Electricity is over $50 a week for a three bedroom apartment. Every home is brick in earthtones and most are one story. It is easy to get lost because every residential street looks the same and it is almost perfectly flat. The main roads are lined with ugly strip shopping centers. People do drive faster around here, but driving can be a challenge. Slow drivers will block any given lane of arterial streets or highways at random. If you drive ten miles anywhere on the bypass, you will see someone going 100mph and someone going 35mph. People are very friendly, but I can't determine what they are so happy about, other than clear skies.
