My wife and I are considering moving to the Littleton, CO area (actually considering multiple suburbs around Denver).. and I'm learning about the telco issues from CL down there.. thanks for the posting! On a side note, can you provide any feedback on littleton for us? - lifestyle, weather, summer/winters temps, areas to avoid ??
Thanks so much !!
Glad my "escapades" with the local Telco were of help to you. It's getting pretty sad around here. And we're suppose to be a tech center.
As far as Littleton, I have lived here most of my life, leaving for a year or two, but always coming back (even from paradise in the Caribbean). I'm a "Colorado Boy", it's something that gets in your blood. I live close to Old Downtown and the area is great. There is a ton of new growth, young professionals and their families or starting families, in this area and it's considered one, if not the most popular in the Front Range. The Downtown area is growing with many new entertainment venues and restaurants recently opened or opening soon. It is a very family and young adult oriented growth, but it's a perfect fit for all ages. It has been said that Littleton is the best place in the U.S. to raise children.
Really no areas to avoid. We're a Southern suburb and are more "down home" than Urban. DT Denver is a few minutes North and we're surrounded by anything you could ever want on a short drive. Then there's the mountains! Weather can range from 94 one day to 6" of snow the next in the middle of January. Just wait 5 minutes, the weather will change. Summers can be hot, Winter cold. The other morning it was 2 below. Last year saw -24. Spring is the best and Summer evenings are great for anything outdoors.
I could easily go on but try this instead:
Good luck in your travels and searches. And Welcome! You'll Love It!
