Also HP is often called the "bubble" because unless you have a reason to go outside of HP (i.e. work, school, etc) there is no reason to. It has everything you could ever need in this 25 square mile community. HP is also the most expensive community to live in within Texas.
The landscape is a very tightly compacted residential area with a very large house popping up every once in awhile. This is because way back in the day people bought small houses on small lots in HP, but now people are buying ajacent lots and building large houses on them.
Highland Park High School has consistently made Newsweek's Top 25 American High Schools. This is because of their superb academics, and they also have one of the greatest overall athletic programs anywhere in the United States. So far, this year they have been state champions in football, golf, girl's swimming & diving, tennis, and wrestling. And we havent even concluded spring sports.
Highland Park is the Stepford of the real world. Everything is so awfully perfect that you would suspect robots, only robots would be a welcome replacement to the women that float around the town casting their ideals on the "world." The only things more fake than them are their bodies. Come to Highland park to forget your real worries and focus on...CLOTHS.
