Highlands Ranch - The Advantages



Life in Highlands Ranch has many advantages. If you read our list of disadvantages you might be turned off about living on the ranch. But of course as always in life - good and bad are close together. Read our list of great things for Highlands Ranch.

Home owners Association Back to top

For the (still) low monthly HOA fees your whole family can use the different recreation centers and swimming pools. Try to put that into a gym membership and compare. The home owners association also takes care of enforcing the HOA rules and therefore assuring that the value of your property is not being dragged down by some moron who is trying to make a repair place out of his garage or a dump out of his property.

Yes, they (the architectural committee) some times go overboard with enforcing those rules but they are doing a fairly good job overall. The HOA also organizes quite a few cultural events with huge success.

Shopping & Dining Back to top

Highlands Ranch offers great shopping and dining experiences. Everything you need for daily life is close. In many cases you can actually walk to the restaurant or the store from your home without turning this into a marathon.

If you do not like one super market you can easily shop at the competition. Albertson's, King Soopers (Kroger / City Market), Safeway and Wholefoods are somewhere in your neighborhood.

Restaurants - there are some awesome places in and around Highlands Ranch. From junk food to great exotic cuisine - you'll find something for dinner. As an example - We recommend Little Holly's Chinese Restaurant for dinner and take-out. It's one of our favorite spots. The food is great, the service is fast and good and the location is easy to access. Hacienda Colorado (Lone Tree / next to I-25) is another great place to eat out when living in Highlands Ranch.

 

Crime Back to top

Highlands Ranch is not a poor neighborhood and many crimes found in other parts of town (Denver Metro Area) seem to be less in Highlands Ranch. At least personally I feel very safe in Highlands Ranch and the weekly crime report in the Highlands Ranch Herald sounds more like the report of a small country town. Sure, if you have 75,000+ people living together you will see murder, rape and other ugly stuff but it seems like in smaller numbers.

 

Doctors and Medical Back to top

Finding good doctors and medical practices has not been a problem in Highlands Ranch. With so many people living in one area there is usually a need for every medical profession being represented.

2 great hospitals are also close. Littleton Hospital and SkyRidge are just a few minutes away from most places in Highlands Ranch.
