I enjoy the location, minutes away from most places in st paul/minneapolis area. Great neighbors, schools, and family friendly companies. Transit system and the potential of the ford plant

Highland is a cute family neighborhood where everyone's grandparents live. At the same time, because of the number of grade schools and high schools, it is not by any means an older area. Great place for people of any age to live!
Love Highland Park! Close enough to UMN, shopping, and a variety of restaurants that it's not a hassle to get there - the Metro Lines help a lot. Far enough a way that it isn't as busy or crowded as it is downtown.
