Great Hills was developed in the 1970s and homes continued to be built into the 2000s. The neighborhood grew tremendously over the three decades. The neighborhood has a residential atmosphere but is conveniently close to local highways, shopping, dining, and entertainment.

The Arboretum, a well-known outdoor shopping center, is next to the neighborhood and includes many retail stores, supermarkets, and chain restaurants. There are two movie theaters, a bookstore, and several cafes in the Arboretum.

The neighborhood has plenty to offer in the way of outdoor recreation. The Great Hills Country Club has facilities for swimming, tennis, and golf, as well as a clubhouse.
