As a full-service city, Aurora provides more than just the basics.
Tree-lined streets, open prairie, majestic views of the mountains and ample neighborhood parks make Aurora neighborhoods the ideal place to call home. More than 450 neighborhoods complete the fabric of the community.
An annual 250 days of sunshine means ample opportunity for residents to head to the mountains to scale a "fourteener," slide down a powder-packed slope, set up camp near a rushing waterfall or settle down at a world-class resort.
But closer to home, the thriving, diverse community offers live theater, an art scene, a symphony orchestra, a horse racing park, eight public libraries, six golf courses, two reservoirs, and an abundant number of independently owned, ethnically varied eateries. A new sports park featuring more than 20 multi-use field game areas hosts state and local tournaments as well as local sporting events. And more than 7,500 recreation classes, with 97 parks and miles of trails, and a numerous festivals and events add even more to the mix that makes Aurora the choice for 351,200 (2015) residents. This ranks Aurora 3rd largest city in Colorado and 54th in the nation.
