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.

Littleton is a great family locations. There are plenty of pools, parks, and open space near by. Everyone I have encountered is very friendly. Overall I always feel safe, no matter the hour I'm out driving around or going to the grocery. There are lots of convenient stores and malls around which is nice for things to do or if you need to just run a quick errand. I also love how close it is to everything! Only 1 hour and 15 min from most the front range ski resorts, 20 min from Denver, and 10 min to 45 min to some amazing hiking. Littleton has something to do for everyone and is an amazing place to live.
I LOVE LITTLETON! The area is absolutely beautiful, the traffic isnt terrible and it's just the right distance from downtown Denver. It's diverse and has many unique spots to stop into. The downside is that, along with the rest of the metropolitan area, the prices are going way up! But, if you can afford to live here it is absolutely spectacular!
