Located south of downtown Denver, the City of Littleton has a rich history dating back to the 1859 Pike’s Peak Gold Rush. Historic Downtown Littleton is one of the Denver area’s most charming Main Streets. It is lined with turn-of -the-century buildings, rich with history and offering some of the area’s most unique shopping and dining experiences. Littleton is part of a park and recreation system that offers its citizens four times more parkland than the national average. Every major drainage channel in the city has a trail built in it, and two of the most popular trails in the metro area – the South Platte River Trail and the Highline Canal Trail – run through Littleton.

For newcomers to Colorado, there is some confusion about the size and location of the City of Littleton. The U.S. Postal Service assigns the place name “Littleton” to 17 ZIP codes and many of the addresses written as “Littleton, Colorado” are west of the city in unincorporated Jefferson County or south of the city in unincorporated Douglas County. Most of homes in the City of Littleton are within the boundaries of the Littleton Public Schools.
