With the Rocky Mountain Foothills at your front door and cozy shops and restaurants on every corner, charming Littleton, Colorado has something for everyone. Even though Denver is just a short 30-minute car ride away (or a leisurely bike ride along the riverside trail), you’ll find endless activities to explore in this south suburban neighborhood. Lace up your hiking boots or get ready to shop to your heart’s content, as Shea Homes® has listed the top day date activities for any season or situation.
Charm them at Chatfield
Instead of bringing home flowers for your special someone, bring your date to the flowers! The Botanic Gardens at Chatfield Farms consists of 700 acres of native plant refuge and working farms. Take a stroll through the wildflower gardens or scenic trails, or sign up for one of their many unique events.
For the Nature Lovers
Channel your inner nature-lover and explore the many classes, activities, and events of The Hudson Gardens, nestled in a foliage oasis on the river. Enjoy new experiences with your partner such as beekeeping, bird watching, or couples yoga — or grab a coffee and take a crisp morning walk through more than 30 acres of garden exhibits and trails.
South Broadway Shops & Eats
South Broadway — a street connecting Denver to the southern suburbs — offers a diverse array of shops, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and more. Make a day of it, working your way through eclectic coffee shop-bookstore hybrids and antique stores before stumbling upon a unique lunch spot to enjoy food and drinks.
Wine & Dine
If your goal is to go for more of a classic “wine-and-dine” style date, make your sweetheart swoon with a visit to Carboy Winery. This trendy spot serves wines from around the world and pairs them with a wide variety of small plates and snacks. Enjoy the charming ambiance of their outdoor patio while sharing a special bottle together, making new memories with each sip.
Take a Hike
For the more active couples, immerse yourself in the fresh Colorado air and set out on the High Line Canal Trail, which begins just footsteps from the Solstice™ community. Choose from 71 miles of winding trails that range from Littleton all the way to Aurora. Whether you’d like a casual stroll on paved ground or more natural terrain, you’ll find plenty of options to choose from for an active date.
