Ditto Littleton. It's nice there and why commute when you can not?

I agree.

Superior seems much too far to me. You'll be spending way too much time commuting. There are plenty of nice areas that aren't so far away.

Littleton schools are very good.

The only place I've lived is Boulder 15 years ago for school and stayed in Superior last month for a couple of days. Are all the "burb" towns i.e. Golden, Littleton, Broomfield, Superior, etc. kind of the same? What's the difference other than location say along the 36 corridor vs. west and south Denver suburbs?

Oh ya, one other thing. Wife is an elementary school teacher. Teaching jobs are hard to come by right now, aren't they?

I work in Littleton now and I have to say it has a real pleasant character for a suburban town...the fact that it has character at all is nice. Downtown Littletown has a good transit station which is right along Little's Creek which has a path that goes right down to the South Platte River. Seems like "downtown" has quite a few nice local shops as well as Arapahoe Community College, while not far up the street are plenty of the more suburban amenities (mid-priced fast food, big box stores.)

Unless you have an overriding reason to be living somewhere else, I say live near where you work. Due to my current circumstances, I'm about 30 minutes away, but I found my job after I found my apartment. Living near work leaves you more time to enjoy what the Denver has to offer!

Superior is way too far, with no real good way to get to Littleton, either. I-25 is fairly east of Superior, and there are places with "Littleton" addresses all over the south metro area.
