Does anyone have any insight in to this part of Littleton? It seems like the schools are solid and I'm curious as the vibes of the neighborhoods in these areas. Young families? Older folks? Safe? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

guy, my answer to your question is "yes". Some of the neighborhoods have been there since the early 1900's and some built 100 years later. There are mixtures of older people and young families. There are many different neighborhoods with many different "vibes". I suggest that you find a good realtor (I know one if you would like a recommendation) and just start looking at houses in your price range. I agree with Dave that they are all safe.

I worked for the City of Littleton for 20 years, and my kids attended LPS. It has always been a very family-oriented community with a ton of parks. And with the school system having a good reputation there will always be people looking to raise their families there.

Great neighborhoods. The farther south you go from Littleton Blvd. the newer the homes, especially near Mineral.

Agreed with everyone here.

I lived in the Littleton/Englewood area for over three decades before moving to the western slope. Had a condo in south Littleton for 13 years. And for 7 years I lived in that very area the OP is inquiring about. That would be Southview Place (South Datura, south of Littleton Blvd.) Loved the area, especially with my favorite restaurants Romano's, IHOP,and The Crestwood close by (been some time ago.)

Quite a bit of change regarding old businesses going out and new ones going in. The neighborhoods haven't changed much though. All are very good.

Double H, Romano's is still there. Opened in 1967 and still going strong.

Romano's still has my favorite pizza. IHOP must be gone for 20 years? We never ate there again after my dad got horribly sick one time. It's now the Littleton Cafe. Never been there but it's supposed pretty good. I have good memories of Crestwood - one time when I was in school my grandma took me there to celebrate a science project award. I got the shrimp! That's been many different things since Crestwood left.

I knew the whole family at Romano's and some of the help. They started out in 1967 as primarily take out-but had maybe a half dozen tables for dining.. They expanded in both directions when the TV repair and the sewing/crafts store both moved. My first apartment as a kid was right across the street (Tnle House) in 1970, then moved to Southview Place.

Last time I was in Romano's was a couple years ago. Still great!

Back to Littleton neighborhoods, I have friends I've known for a half century (yep, I'm old!) They live on south Spotswood, just south of Littleton Blvd. Super good area IMO!
