Those who missed the inaugural Littleton Home and Garden Tour last year can make up for it this year, as it returns June 15.

“Step inside some of Littleton’s finest and most notable homes and gardens as neighbors open their doors in support of the Colorado Center for the Blind’s summer youth program,” said Stacey Johnson, CCB’s community development director. “From historic landmarks, to mid-century mod to California contemporaries, you are sure to see a variety of architectural styles and periods.”

The exact address of the homes on the self-guided tour are kept a secret until the big day, when ticket holders can pick up the map from CCB starting at 10 a.m., along with a breakfast burrito. From there, drive or bike to each of the eight homes — everything from a 1920s bungalow to a Santa Barbara ranch.

“The tour’s initiative is to raise money for its summer youth program, increase awareness of the center’s work with blind individuals of all ages, and celebrate the unique and vibrant residential architecture found within Littleton,” said Robin Loughran of Ducks in a Row Events.

Tickets are $25, or $20 in advance at cocenter.org. Vans are available for blind attendees at the center at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Coffee, soft drinks, breakfast burritos and lunch will be available for purchase, provided by a gourmet food truck. Booties are included in the price of the ticket, to ensure floors are left tidy in the homes.

The Colorado Center for the Blind and its Legacy Garden, 2233 W. Shepperd Ave., Littleton, will also be available for tours. For more information, contact 303-778-1130.
