I have some family moving to the Parker area on rather short notice. They are perusing these threads, but I thought I would ask a question on their behalf: Are there any towns with an "old downtown" (antique stores, restaurants, mom and pop shops) within a commute distance to Parker? They would like to live close in to such a downtown to be able to walk into town. They have no kids so schools are not an issue. They won't have much time to look for a place because of a job transfer, so I thought I would help. Anything within 20-30 minutes would be workable. Thanks!

Depends on how substantial of an "old town" you're looking for. Downtown Parker is literally about 1 block long, with most of the attractions on only one side of the street. They do have a nice plaza with many children-oriented community events. Next nearest would be downtown Castle Rock, which is maybe 2 blocks long. To get to a more substantial sized small town downtown, you'd have to go to Englewood, or better yet, Littleton. If they took the E-470 toll road, Littleton to Parker would be a fairly short commute.

As vegaspilgrim said, Parker has one, but if you want something substantial, try Littleton

Morrison. Golden. Arvada. If "old" is not your type, Lone Tree might work
