The houses and general aesthetic of the community are very gorgeous. However, unfortunately, a significant part of the community is comprised of extremely conservative and bigoted people. The restaurants are good, and there are quite a few shopping centers that are within walking distance at any point in Highland Park.

Hp is a safe neighborhood with lots of opportunities to succeed, and a culture of perfection. Many here are conservative and wealthy. People are incredibly philanthropic and educated. An issue I have is the culture of exclusivity and narrow mindedness, along with the teachings being subpar. It is a fiercely competitive community academically, athletically, and socially which can make it difficult raising kids here due to the tremendous pressure. However I believe it’s a good town with a tight knit community that pushes kids to succeed.
Highland Park is a very friendly neighborhood, but it's also known as a bubble of its own. It's a very niche community that celebrates fun events, but it does have a reputation of a rich neighborhood, and diversity is welcomed, just rare. Everything's within walking distance, well-maintained streets, good safety, and its an overall gorgeous city.
