Neighborhood of Henderson
|Mountain Range||Black Mountain|
The highlands are situated approximately 15 miles (25 km) from the Las Vegas Strip and 20 miles (32 km) from downtown Las Vegas. It sits on the edges of the McCullough Mountains and overlooks much of Henderson and the Las Vegas Valley including the Las Vegas Strip.
It is one of the highest points of the Las Vegas area. Although guard-gated, and separated from other Henderson neighborhoods by the Dragonridge Country Club, it is bordered by the communities of Del Webb to the west, The Canyons to the southwest, McCullough Hills to the northeast and west, and Green Valley Ranch to the northwest. MacDonald Highlands is also adjacent to the neighborhoods of Ascaya and Roma Hills.
The 89012 zip code, where the neighborhood is located, has the 7th highest per-capita income in the United States.
