If you want to live in Colorado close to the mountains and twenty minutes from Denver you should live in Littleton! This is an amazing city with a historic downtown that everyone loves. Not only does Littleton have a historic downtown, it has beautiful beatiful parks, a river, lakes, multiple shopping centers, and amazing schools. Littleton is a wonderful community and it feels like home where people care for each other and are very outgoing and friendly. You will see people riding bikes and taking dogs for a walks. The best thing about Littleton is the view of the mountains, it is amazing! Littleton is safe, family friendly and fun to live in.

I personally enjoy visiting downtown Littleton, even more than downtown Denver! It's not as busy and the whole place has an old-time cozy feel. Suburbs felt safe majority of the time, and I was in a location with great access to a rec center and schools in the area.
Good community! Littleton is small but great. Not a lot for teens to do but there are a lot of family activities. Very close to mountains, good for hikes and camping. Grew up there and I'm leaving soon. Littleton is a good, comfortable small town. Above average. That is all I have to say to be honest.
