That's not to say the shopping, dining, and nightlife are any less enticing. With three major shopping centers, there are more than enough options for all your needs and wants.


The city of Aurora is home to amazing recreational programs for all ages. Youth, adult, and adaptive sports, camps, and classes are available year-round throughout the city. Aurora’s multiple pools and waterparks provide residents with ways to beat the heat, while its 7,500 acres of open space are perfect for picnic lunches, exercising, and enjoying Mother Nature. 


Aurora also offers outstanding cultural experiences like the Aurora Symphony Orchestra, which holds concerts year-round and has 27 historical sites to learn about and enjoy.
