There is so much to love about Highlands. It has been a mountain respite for over a century and people still come here to get away from 'the real world' and the small year-round population of about 3,200 swells to over 30,000 in the summer months. Whether you are looking to relax or discover unique activities, the Playhouse joins the vibrant cultural arts scene with four live productions in the summer season and first-run movies throughout the year. The postcard downtown area itself boasts some of the finest amenities in the South with amazing shops, world-famous resorts and unforgettable restaurants. At 4,118 feet, Highlands has one of the highest elevations east of the Mississippi River.
