Highland Park Reviews
Rating 4.07 out of 5 57 reviews
Really great community with solid diversity, good food, friendly neighbors, and an amazing school system.
Highland Park is a very safe and family friendly suburb of Chicago. Great schools, great neighborhood, cute downtown. Everything is super accessible year and there is great access to Lake Michigan. However, there is a clear lack of diversity.
Highland Park was amazing town to grow up in. It has great public schools, nice parks and nature preserves, and a great sense of community. I loved the downtown Highland Park area which is filled with restaurants , shops, and nice places to sit. Highland Park does lacks diversity and the whole town is predominantly white, Jewish, and wealthy people. Highland Park feels exclusive in the sense that most people that do not fit into the Highland Park stereotype do not feel welcome. It would be nice if Highland Park did more to attract people of different cultures, races, and backgrounds.
Nice town close to the lake. Very expensive place to live. Basically, everything you would want is very close in the area.
Your overview lists HP as being conservative leaning. False. We are a progressive caring community. I’ve lived here for 44 years and can not imagine a better community in which to live. Many kids who’ve grown up here return to begin their own families.
Love the downtown and transit systems. Great public schools, tons of parks, and plenty for families to do. Easy to get downtown via metra and close to two major expressways.
The town is kept clean and always looks pleasant. The school system is good as well. Not a very busy town but there is plenty to do and it is relatively safe.
I do enjoy highland park a lot. but I have lived in many places in the US. and highland park is a very rural area and i like the city more.
I would like to see more equality and justice for people of color, as well as a dramatic decrease in racial profiling.
Highland Park has been a great town to grow up in. I have been fortunate to feel safe throughout my childhood and have gone to great schools with caring teachers. I have grown up with great friends and enjoyed many activities, sports, and programs that Highland Park has to offer.
Safe area to grow up, family-friendly, and good public schools. However, it is an affluent area with little diversity.
Affluent suburban city- beautiful!! Safe, lots of restaurants, parks, beaches, easy commute to Chicago by train or car.
I love how it is a safe community, but some of the people who live here are not the nicest/are focused on popularity.
I like that there are many opportunities at Highland Park high school. At HPHS there are many resources you can use. Everyone is friendly and nice. It is not super hard to find a job if you are a teen.
Highland park is a safe place to live for the most part and there is a couple of fun activities to do around town. It has a variety of stores and restaurants to go with friends and family.
Highland Park is a great community!! HP is very family orientated and a beautiful area to live in. Highland Park is right on Lake Michigan and the beaches here are fantastic!! The downtown area has many shops and restaurants and is a great place to hang out. Highland Park is also right by the Chicago Botanic Gardens. Ravinia is a summer tradition here whether its in the pavilion or in our backyards you can hear the concerts everywhere.
Highland Park is a nice place to live. The people are friendly and Highland Park High School is a great school. It is pretty expensive to live here, though.
