UP is just a great all around town. It is very similar to Highland Park, but it is not as expensive and it has a more family feel to it. Highland Park sometimes comes off as older people who are a bit snobby, but University Park is just nice people who have nice kids. I had a great experience in University Park and hope to move back someday. I think that the court system there as well as all of the official dealings are pretty hassle-free. I got a ticket and the nice judge helped me decide what to do and how to get it erased from my record. It is a very, very safe neighborhood.
