Highlands Ranch has plenty to offer, from recreation to dining and entertainment. There are more than 20 schools in the area, all under Douglas County School District, the third-largest district in Colorado.

Highlands Ranch offers 26 parks. When you want some fresh air, you can go running, biking, or hiking on 70 miles of trails. There are more than 8,000 acres of conservation space in the Backcountry Wilderness Area, where you can enjoy archery, horse riding, hunting, camping, etc. Since it is a protected area, you will always have access to these facilities. Plus, there are golf courses, skate parks, fishing ponds, and even a tiny beach where you can head on weekends! No wonder it is the right time to invest in luxury real estate in Highlands Ranch
