Littleton is located in the northern-central part of the state of Colorado and a city and seat of Arapahoe county. There are portions of the city that lies within Douglas and Jefferson counties. The city was developed as a flour mill and granary sites that were established in 1867, which will be used to serve the gold camps that are located farther west in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Until World War II, the area’s economic activities were primarily on agriculture up until there were war material plants that were built. After the war, many of those war material plants were converted into aerospace production. The city used to be surrounded mainly by farmlands, however, at present Littleton is now a large suburb and has been effectively indistinguishable from the communities that adjoin it in the Denver metropolitan area. You can fly into the city through the Buckley AFB Airport, and its 45, 800 residents ride the bus or train to reach work and other parts of the city. Littleton hosts the Denver Art Affair and the Colorado Irish Festival every year, two events which draw thousands of tourists. Most locals own their homes, the average price of which are more affordable than the national average. While Colorado’s gorgeous outdoor features and activities are in full display in Littleton, the city also features a golf course and race track for recreation.
