Two different types of communities. Hidden Lakes is older and has a golf course running through it and seems more exclusive. Houses don't quite feel as on top of each other as they do in Heritage.

Heritage is more of a master planned community with a great community pool center, newer homes and various types of homes ranging from 140K on up to 300K in The Bluffs. It is still growing. Most homes seem to be on five foot lot lines and not a lot of land. Can be a little more cookie cutter, but it has quite a few amenities within the community.

Both communities have great schools and retail.

I would recommend driving through both so you can get a good feel of which best suits your needs and wants.

Hidden Lakes has Sky Ranch Golf Club, three community swimming pools, two soccer fields and a very active Homeowners Association with a number of groups like running, cycling, book clubs, playgroups, etc. They also sponser events like Daddy/Daughter dance, Easter Egg hunt, Breakfast with Santa, etc, (Welcome to Hidden Lakes -- Keller, Texas). The elementary school is excellent--great staff and extremely active PTA. Overall, I think the homes are more expensive than Heritage, although Ashbrook and the Preserve have lower priced homes but smaller lots. The traffic seemed to be worse in the Heritage area when we were comparing the two, although that was 4 years ago...

Hidden Lakes by far. But there are smaller neighborhoods around there too with community pools etc...
Heritage is also in Ft worth not Keller, taxes and services are different. If you have to cross 377 for work that can be a major pain (with the train etc...)
HS for Hidden lakes is Keller HIgh
HS for Heritage is Fossil ridge.

We looked at both and choose the slightly older slighly smaller (but better built house) That was zoned for Keller HIgh. Mainly because my daughter starts HS this year, I don't have 3-5 years to see if the school can turn around etc...

High School for Heritage is Central High School which is located right outside the entrance of the development.

The Bluffs actually goes up to the mid to high 500k's.

Hidden Lakes is by far the better community and also has the better schools. It has a reputation for being prestigious.

Heritage is a larger community and more diverse in pricing it is more everyday living.
