There isn't much in Highlands Ranch itself. But if you go a few miles north, near Park Meadows Mall, you will see Walnut Brewery (micro brewery) and a few other places you can have a beer. Walnut Brewery has a good bar and good pool room.
Dress Code: Anything.
This is a picture from the local mall ... the parking lot of Park Meadows. This, I think, is the best mall in Denver. So, if you are the shopping type, you might want to check it out.
Other cool places to shop around the Denver area:
-- Cherry Creek area
-- Boulder's Pearl Street Mall --
anyway, the reason I really put this picture up is to show the view. This is one of the things I really love about living here -- the magnificient mountain views!
Favorite thing: Highlands Ranch has some great walking trails. Tourists don't go there. Just people like me who live there. Perfect for me and my dog.
Fondest memory: This is Highlands Ranch open space. After work, or on weekends, or early in the morning ... Highlands Ranch has a lot of peaceful places to walk. This is not a tourist attraction, just a place people like me live, so all you see are local residents from Denver's south suburbs.
