Littleton's Main Street Historic District (Courtesy of Jeffrey Beall)
When you rent an apartment in Littleton, one thing comes standard: a relaxed lifestyle surrounded by history and culture.
This suburb of the Denver-Aurora metro area is just about 9 miles south of downtown Denver, but its walkable vibe and Main Street Historic District is decades apart from the big city. You can spend a whole day admiring the distinctive turn-of-the-century architecture and shopping at some of Littleton's most unique and independently-owned businesses, including art galleries, specialty boutiques, antique shops, restaurants and bars.
When you rent in Littleton, Denver's urban attractions are just minutes away. The Regional Transportation District's light rail system makes two stops in town, or you can discover the area by taking the more scenic hiking or biking trails along the Platte River.
There are plenty of options for weekend getaways, too, in nearby Aurora, Golden, Lakewood, Highlands Ranch, Englewood and Centennial. Take a tour of the historic Coors Brewery or spend a day thrill-seeking at Heritage Square Family Entertainment Village in Golden, Colorado.
