Highpoint Glen itself is largely composed of standalone, single-family homes, but there is a small apartment complex in the southwest corner. Beyond homes, Highpoint Glen is also home to a recording studio. However, residents will need to leave the neighborhood to find other amenities like grocery stores, gas stations, schools and churches.
Columbus experiences all four seasons throughout the year. Summer months will be rather muggy and temperatures will be rather hot. Winter months, however, will be much colder. Thankfully, rainfall and snowfall is rather light, so the winter months tend to be drier than other midwestern cities.
Additionally, Highpoint Glen is a rather flat neighborhood, so you and Fido shouldn't encounter any extreme changes in elevation as you explore this Columbus suburb.
