There are amazing parks and open spaces. Crime is limited, and it feels very inclusive. There is dining ad=nd shopping mixed into the charming suburban city.

Downtown Littleton maintains many of its historic buildings including houses and a rail station. There is a free historical museum and plenty to do with the kids. Many historic homes have been turned into stores.

We love living in Littleton! The schools are great and our kids love growing up in a town with a "small town feel"

We love being an hour from the mountains, and having places like Red rocks within 15 minutes.
