I have lived in Highlands Ranch since 2005, and I moved to the community to raise my son as a single mother. It is much safer than most cities around Denver. Beware, the average income level for people living in this area in 2013 was $108,218 which I am sure has gone way up. The average home costs $341,100 in 2013 which has gone up to around $390K. There are tons of trails, parks, dining and easy access to the highway. On C-470 you can go 50 minutes East to Denver International Airport, or 50 minutes West to Blackhawk, CO., where there is gambling like a mini Las Vegas nestled in the mountains. If concerts, sporting events or amusement parks are your thing, we have the (RTD Light Rail) that takes you to several different places in downtown Denver. You can go to the theater district to see plays, or the Pepsi Center for games/concerts, Sports Authority Field (Broncos football games), and Elitches for thrill rides. Highlands Ranch is 81.9% white. Most neighborhoods are full of families with school age kids, but there are a few neighborhoods with mostly retired or single people like "The Villages by Oakwood" for example. Those are adorable patio style homes in a smaller, nice, quiet community that has it's own pool. That's where I live. For anyone 55+ there is an amazing retirement community that I recommend checking out called "WindCrest by Erickson Living." That place is an upscale community that resembles a 5 star resort in every way. The average cost of living there is around $1,681.00 a month for seniors. There is a large Lake very close to Highlands Ranch called Chatfield Lake where you can take your boat out on the water. We don't get that much snow, and when it snows it usually melts the next day. The roads are well taken care of in the winter months. It's generally sunny all year. It's a great place to live and it's getting more and more populated which is causing cost of living to soar in our state. If you make a good living or want to retire in a nice place with plenty to do then consider Highlands Ranch, Castle Pines, Columbine Valley or Cherry Creek. Those are all great places to live and most are envious of those who live there.

crime correction? I live in Highlands Ranch and have for about 9 years. I think the crime statistics are very incorrect. I know of zero violent crime in this middle/upper middle class suburban area.
