LITTLETON, Colo. — Even though it’s just 20 minutes from Denver’s center, this historic suburb’s downtown is a destination unto itself, with art galleries, an epic beer bar, boutique shops and its own art center.

And that’s just one reason why families have been moving to Littleton for generations. It’s something those websites that publish “best places to live” lists have noticed, too.

The 13-square mile city (which has a population of over 46,000) was ranked the eighth best small city in America by Wallethub, one of the safest places to live in the U.S. as well as a top spot for retirement by Livability.com, one of the best places in the state to visit by Dream Vacation Magazine, and the easiest place to sell a home by SmartAsset.com.
