Pacific Highlands Ranch Reviews

I live in a very wonderful area and I have access to everything I need. It's a fairly wealthy and very clean area. The only aspect of this area that I do not like is how superficial some people are; there are a lot of plastic surgeons who get lots of business around here and it is a little off-putting how fake people's bodies are and sometimes their personality matches that superficiality.

Mostly restaurants and clothes, but they're great.
I would probably choose to live here again. It would be a nice place to raise kids.
