Vibrant and Friendly, Littleton’s Downtown is Waiting to Welcome You!
Littleton’s Main Street hits all the top notes: a vibrant and walkable downtown, friendly merchants, an exceptional variety of stores to explore, fine and casual dining opportunities, several lodging establishments and tax-free shopping! Spend some time downtown and you’ll soon understand why Littleton was selected in 2015 as one of the Best Small Downtowns in America and Travel & Leisure chose it as one of America’s Greatest Main Streets.
Shop downtown for fine art and craft by juried artisans, jewelry, hip clothing, musical instruments, upscale consignment women’s wear, outdoor apparel, and home décor. The world’s longest candy counter, as per the Guinness Book of World Records, is always a magnet for the kids, as is the town’s toy and bookstore, where youngsters and oldsters will discover a store stocked with an appealing selection of merchandise.
One of downtown’s standout features — and a wonderful photo op — is the whimsical bronze sculpture of Pollyanna on the library lawn, whose “glad” spirit radiates throughout the town.
Many of Littleton’s downtown buildings retain their original architecture, so be sure to pick up a walking tour brochure at the GoLittleton Glad Shop and imbibe a little history during your visit.
You won’t go hungry on Main Street. Fine and casual dining, pizza, coffee and pastries, authentic Thai, and an old-fashioned diner will keep you satisfied. A great way to start or end your day of exploring Littleton.
