Buying a home isn’t just about purchasing a structure in which to live. It’s also about choosing a neighborhood in which you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed. A real community to call home.
Homes for sale in the Greater Denver area are in neighborhoods that would make any prospective homebuyer want to establish permanent roots. Take Littleton, for example. Within close proximity to parks, museums, theaters and more, it is the perfect residential enclave. Here are just a few of the local amenities:
Roxborough State Park
It is a National Natural Landmark. And when you visit Roxborough State Park, you’ll immediately know why. The views are stunning. Angled red rock formations dramatically jut from the earth and thrust against the sky, deer and other wildlife roam the 4,000-acre range, hiking trails form a path to witness the beauty of creation. The museum also presents a number of programs. For example, naturalists lead a variety of talks and activities. For more information, stop by the Visitor Center at the park, located at 4751 E Roxborough Dr., or call (303) 973-3959.
The city of Littleton really began to take shape in the mid-19th century, during the “Pikes Peak” gold rush. A couple of decades later a railroad that was expanding through the region anchored Littleton’s permanence. Stores, churches, schools and a hotel became fixtures in the burgeoning village.
The city’s history is chronicled at Littleton Museum, which presents displays and exhibits that sweepingly reach back to prehistoric periods, time travel through multiple eras, and settle in the 21st century. Among the museum’s resources are a research center with collections of books, maps and photographs, and an interactive program for kids. For a comprehensive look at the city, visit the museum at 6028 S. Gallup St.
For kids, JungleQuest offers an exhilarating romp through an indoor forest created for exploration and escape. Youngsters will go on a “safari” with guides who’ll first strap them into a climbing harness and explain the rules of the jungle. Then the guides will help as their charges delve into activities such as mastering a rock climbing wall, dashing on a zipline, swinging in a cargo net and other adventures.
Admission is free for big kids – parents and spectators – who may watch from their perch on the Jungle Lookout Viewing Deck. Located at 8000 S. Lincoln St., Suite 10, JungleQuest also is available for special events such as birthday parties.
