Although Highland is currently undergoing a growth in development, new home builders are sensitive to the town's breathtaking rural landscape and work diligently to construct homes that blend seamlessly into their surroundings. Highland's newest planned community, Paternal Gift Farm, is composed of state of the art luxury homes where buyers can expect high-end features like media rooms, granite counter tops, and top of the line appliances. But, even this large new development integrates the Highland's farming tradition with a communal horse farm located on neighborhood grounds. Recognized by the National Association of Homebuilders and the television network HGTV for its innovative design and ecologically friendly mission, Paternal Gift Farm reflects the genteel country sophistication that distinguishes Highland from other parts of Howard County.
The Greater Highland Crossroads Association aims to further a sense of community within the town and holds the yearly Highland Day festival, which many residents attend. However, there are also many attractions located just outside the rural community, primarily in the large suburb of Columbia. Columbia is full of things to do with seemingly endless options for dining, shopping, recreation, and culture.
The spacious and upscale Mall in Columbia, which features over 230 stores, is a popular shopping destination that draws Marylanders from surrounding counties and the town's 120 restaurants offer an eclectic range of cuisines to satisfy even the pickiest eater. In addition, the famed Merriwether Post Pavilion attracts internationally acclaimed musical acts and entertainers to Columbia each summer.
Not only is Highland a beautiful area with exciting neighboring towns, it is part of Maryland's best school system, the Howard County Public Schools.
