Highlands Ranch got its start as a planned community, and that shows in the 25 parks, 70 miles of running and biking trails, and 2,200 acres of green space. This Denver suburb serves as an outdoor mecca for well-heeled commuters. Despite a recent boom, Highlands Ranch is still considered a bedroom community.

But up-and-comers can still pick up a 6-bedroom, 6-bath, 5,000-square-foot manse with a three-car garage for about half a million dollars. With two nationally ranked high schools, it's a no-brainer.
