Littleton

Just a few miles south of downtown Denver, Historic Downtown Littleton has a charm all its own, from turn-of-the-century buildings and antique shops to cozy, relaxed eateries, restaurants and bars. Browse Main Street's independently owned shops and galleries featuring local artists. Step into the past at the Littleton Museum with its 19th century farm, or experience community theater and music at the Town Hall Arts Center. See the Littleton neighborhood map
