Restaurants

Foothill Green residents have a range of restaurants located within a convenient distance from their homes. In addition to the predictable but comforting fare offered by chains, this area hosts several independent restaurants as well, providing locals with everything from Cajun to Middle Eastern food.

At NoNo's Cafe, the menu features Cajun fare. Try the spinach sausage cheese pie for something warm and delicious, or pick something spicy such as the jambalaya. Whether you order a catfish sandwich or a bowl of gumbo, you can pair it with one of NoNo's beers or wine.

Another ethnic restaurant in the area, Damascus Grill promises to serve the tastiest middle eastern food in the metro area. Snack on veggie kabobs, stuffed grape leaves, baba ganoush or fava beans at this restaurant.

Nightlife offers a range of activities, and young people in the area frequent the 40 Thieves Hookah Bar. In addition to hookah, this spot hosts a foosball table and pool tables. It frequently has DJs and dancing in the evening, and frequent visitors can get an "addict card" which saves them on smoke.

Locals who prefer to yell at TVs while sipping pints of lager head to The Draft Sports Grill. This venue has numerous TVs on the walls playing the most important games, great deals on wings and a huge list of beers on tap.

History

The village of Littleton quickly followed the emergence of Denver. Gold miners arrived in Denver in the 1850s, and Richard Sullivan Little, founder of Littleton, arrived not long later. In 1867, he established a flour mill in the area now called Foothill Green. By 1876, schools, churches, shops and a hotel filled the village, and in 1890, the 245 residents voted to incorporate into the city of Littleton.

Agriculture remained the staple industry of the area until the middle of the 20th century. The latter half of that century brought electronics, manufacturing and aerospace industries to the area, and as a result, its population boomed.

Committed to maintaining a community spirit and an arts vibe, the area's downtown hosts Willow – An Artisans Market. This shop features jewelry, pottery, glassware, textiles and more from local artists. Theater lovers frequent the Town Hall Arts Center, a theater in downtown Littleton.

Transportation

RTD buses serve the Foothill Green area, and riders can take buses to Federal Center Station, where light rail trains connect to the rest of the city. Residents may also drive to this station which sits roughly 10 miles from their homes.

Free parking spots exist throughout Foothill Green, and Kipley Street runs through the area, connecting residents to Highway 6 leading to downtown Denver. Alternatively, residents may drive slightly to the east to access I-25 into downtown, or they may jump on E-470 a ring road looping around the city and linking to I-70, which leads to the mountains.

Foothill Green hosts dedicated bike paths as well as bike lanes on the roads, and these paths connect to paths running through the entire metro area. Foothill Green and Littleton have a lot of safe and convenient walking opportunities, and residents living near Littleton's historic downtown find that neighborhood to be walkable as well.

Both cab companies and Uber drivers serve the area, but locals call these services rather than trying to hail them in the street.

Cost

In Foothill Green, expect to find a slightly lower cost of living than in other parts of the metro area. Drivers save 6 percent on a gallon of gas compared to the national average. Renters save as well, as one-bedroom apartments in Foothill Green average $995 per month, less than Denver's $1,041 average.

Accessing Denver via public transit costs just $2. During rush hour, riders pay between $3 and $5 for a ride, but seniors and students receive a discount on their fares. When you want to pour down a pint of beer, grab just $4 or $5 from your pocket.

Shopping

For shopping, locals of Foothill Green have access to the Aspen Grove Lifestyle Center. This open-air retail village houses over 50 fine stores and restaurants. The center welcomes dogs on leashes in nearly all of its shops, provides easy storefront parking and offers great views of the mountains as you shop.

Shoppers in search of unique, independent shops shop in Littleton's historic downtown. There, the Pink Attic Cat sells vintage, antique and curious items. Winner of the "Best of the Burbs" award, the shop has well-curated shelves full of items not often found in most shops.

If you want something scarier, check out Reinke Brothers Haunted House. More than a haunted house, this shop sells costumes, wigs, makeup and masks all year round, and it has the largest magic inventory of any Denver metro store.

When it comes to shopping for groceries, locals have access to large chain shops such as King Soopers and Whole Foods, as well as independent shops such as Tony's Market, a small butcher and gourmet grocer. Check out the Wednesday morning farmers market at Aspen Grove, or drive to one of the weekend farmers markets in downtown Denver.

Parks

Parks exist throughout Foothill Green, but locals favor Robert A. Eastman Regional Park. Originally, this park featured a playground, 2 tennis courts, a volleyball court and a basketball court. It has been expanded to include a total of 8 multi-use sport fields, a lake for fishing and several recreational paths.

Another popular option, Kendrick Lake Park hosts beautiful trails for walking your dog around the lake. If your pup prefers to romp in an off-leash area, check out the dog park at Chatfield State Park. You must pay a fee to enter this park or have a state park's pass on your vehicle, but once inside, your dog can play in one of the best dog parks in Denver.

Festivals abound in the local area including the Affordable Arts Festival, where all art carries prices under $100, and the South Denver Beer Festival. Foothill Green residents also travel into Denver for festivals there such as The Denver Zombie Crawl or Taste of Colorado.
