The 5280 Guide to Historic Downtown Littleton

December 2013

Each winter, Littleton’s Main Street transforms into a snow globe–worthy strip illuminated by thousands of twinkling lights and anchored by a 55-foot Christmas tree. An afternoon spent ducking among the festive shops is all but guaranteed to cure even the worst case of the Scrooges. 


Park the kids at the coloring book table at the front of the store and peruse Details Boutique’s trendy wares unencumbered. You’ll find options for anyone on your Christmas list: a Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag for new-to-parenthood neighbors; a Maruca artisan handbag for your teenage cousin; and TableTopics’ Not Your Mom’s Dinner Party card game for your chatty gal pal. 2359 W. Main St., 303-703-3884,
