To change Highland Village could be classified as a sin, for it is perfect just the way it is. The neighbors are quiet and friendly, you could always expect a happy wave and kind smile from them if you found them outside mowing their lawns or playing with their children. There are parks surrounding the houses and a beautiful lake for fishing and boating, it's almost like a summer vacation every time you visit. Highland Village is an excellent place to raise children or at the very least settle down for retirement. It is suitable for anyone and everyone if they so desire to live in Highland Village.

We looked at all the suburbs around Dallas and Fort Worth. We shopped for a home for three years before settling on highland village. We came here almost two years ago and we feel that it is the best DFW suburb. It is close to everything but far enough that it is quiet and peaceful! We love it here!
Just 25-30 minutes north of Dallas the stress dwindles once you pass the Highland Village city limits. Whether starting a new family, have a family of 3 or thinking about retiring, knowing that you reside in one of the quietest, safest neighborhoods provides a peace of mind and relaxation most cities can’t provide. The school district promotes and encourages a high standard of excellence for both academics and extra-curricular activities.
Highland Village borders Lake Lewisville, which provides for numerous outdoor activities. There are trails throughout the neighborhood that lead to parks for both their 2 and 4-legged family members. There is a shopping area that provides movies, dining, boutiques, retail stores and a Whole Foods.
Overall Highland Village is a city that while it continues to change with the times maintains a "small town" feel.
