Littleton Colorado is essentially just a stone's throw away from Denver, but immerses visitors in an altogether more cozy and homely country atmosphere. Adventurous types can while away the days trekking and exploring through the national parks and wilderness that surround this quaint little town, whereas families can take their children to exhilarating amusement parks to keep them entertained during the summer vacations.
Those traveling with little ones will welcome the opportunities to take their kids to make a splash at the Pirates Cove Water Park just outside Littleton. With pools for all ages and abilities, tunnel slides and water themed rides, this is sure to keep them occupied for hours!
For a less crazy day out, the picturesque Robert F. Clement Park is home to a huge 60-acre lake. Travelers of all ages can enjoy a relaxing stroll along the waterfront, or set up a picnic alongside the river. Those interested in tennis, basketball or other sports can bring their A-game and practice on the various courts contained here. More experienced hikers in need of a physical challenge or simply a place to go jogging will enjoy the trails that twist and turn through Bear Creek or on the Mary Carter Greenway Trail.
The summer months are the best time to visit Littleton Colorado to enjoy the best of the summer sun and the opportunity to get outside and enjoy the parks and scenery.
