Suburbia heaven

Friendly people, great spacious neighborhoods with lots of common areas to walk and enjoy the outdoors. Great bike trails and 20 minutes from downtown Denver. Eating out is challenging as there only a handful of good restaurants to choose from. Lifestyle in the suburbs does not get better, in winter you are close enough to the ski slopes to enjoy the pristine powder and down in Denver its dry with bright blue skies. For kids Littleton offers a lifestyle of riding bikes, playing sport and generally having a great balance of entertainment and a access to safe play environments. Downtown Littleton have upgraded the main street and subsequently all adjacent blocks and now offers a great destination to take friends out for a cocktail after work. It has a great vibe to the main street area and the local parades and light ceremonies offer some good entertainment for families.
