One of Denver’s most popular suburbs, Littleton offers so much for residents – quaint shops and boutiques, family-friendly parks, restaurants, and much more! Made up of a healthy mix of middle and high-income homes, and businesses, Littleton is nearly 14 square miles, and situated about 10 miles southwest of Denver.


Last November, Littleton was named the second-best small city in the nation, based on factors like high home-ownership rates, comfortable cost-of-living, education, health care and quality of life.


Those familiar with Littleton are typically drawn in by Main Street. Here visitors will find a variety of small businesses— from massage parlors, auto repair shops and laundromats, to independently-owned restaurants and specialty shops. Main Street also features turn-of-the-century buildings that house art galleries, boutiques, gift shops, bars and restaurants.


Parks and green spaces are also plentiful in Littleton. The Littleton park system includes 1,400 acres and 200 miles of trails, as well as dozens of small, family-friendly playgrounds.


Cornerstone Park is one of the areas popular spaces as it houses baseball fields, an inline skating rink, a dog park, playgrounds and mini golf. Directly across the street from Cornerstone is Belleview Park, which has lots of shady picnic spots, a creek, a petting zoo and a miniature train ride.
