Littleton has transportation for older people who do not or cannot drive. Public places have handicap entrances, as they need to. Littleton has respectful helpful people who are often willing to help someone if they see they are in need. My only concern for our elders is that we do not have a great community center for them. We do have meals and parties, but for anything else, they need to travel to other town elder community centers.

It has a Range of people of all ages and many generations of families have resided in this town. Overall it's a good place for both the elderly and the young because of the variety around it and the availability of activities.
