Most Highland Village residents aren’t from here; they’ve relocated, attracted by the low crime rate, exemplary schools, rolling hills, and, of course, Lewisville Lake. Houses here start at $150,000 and go up to several million. As in most Dallas suburbs, the population can be generalized as conservative, middle to upper class, family oriented, and mostly white. But nice and always neighborly. The people of Highland Village must feel like they’re on a constant vacation. The city’s Inland Trails connect Lewisville Lake to shops, parks, and schools. Kids are riding their bikes. People are walking their dogs, skipping rocks in the lake. There are two neighborhood feels: middle-class lake town (older homes from the 1960s and up) and high-end gated community (the homes at Highland Shores, with community pools and wine tastings). Regardless the price of the house, the vibe is laid-back.
