Littleton, Colorado is considered part of the Denver metropolitan area.   Littleton is the Home Rule Municipality in Arapahoe, Douglas, and Jefferson counties that is the county seat of Arapahoe County, Colorado, United States.  The city is a part of the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, CO.

First of all, Historic Downtown Littleton, with tree-lined streets and several distinctive historic buildings, looks nothing like Denver’s high-rise skyline. But if you want to get to Denver from here, aside from driving, you can hike or bike the riverside trail along the Platte River or you can get there fast on the RTD light rail.

An impressive town museum, the Littleton Historical Museum, is situated on a spacious 14 acres next to Ketring Lake. This living-history farm, served well by trained volunteers, recreates life on an 1860s farm and homestead.  Galleries and exhibits, with thousands of local artifacts, further interpret the area’s history.

Littleton lies on the South Platte River in the Colorado Piedmont region of the Great Plains a few miles east of the Front Range of the Southern Rocky Mountains.   Most of the city lies on the east side of the river. Several small tributaries of the river flow northwest through the city; from north to south, these include Big Dry Creek, Slaughterhouse Gulch, Lee Gulch, and Dad Clark Gulch. In addition, there are several small lakes and reservoirs located along the river in the southwestern part of the city. Immediately west of the river are Cooley Lake, Bufflehead Lake, South Platte Reservoir, Eaglewatch Lake, Redtail Lake, and Blackrock Lake. East of the river lie Wolhurst Lake and McLellen Reservoir which is fed and drained by Dad Clark Gulch. Chatfield Reservoir lies immediately southwest of the city.
