America’s 10 Friendliest Small Cities: #6 – Littleton, CO
You’ll always know your neighbor in these Friendliest Small Cities across America.
And look who comes in at #6 on the charts!
At 43,775 people, Littleton is the smallest small city in our top 10, but it was a big deal during the Pike’s Peak gold rush of the 1800s. Today, the community still has plenty of gold… in the form of friendliness.
A big part of Littleton’s placing in our top 10 has to do with its violent crime rate of 130 per 100,000 residents per year, which placed it 24th overall for that criterion and makes it the least violent place in our top 10.
Littleton also fared well for flowers and gift shops (sixth) and greeting card shops (11th), and had an impressive 14,343 Facebook Likes (for such a small city).
