Aurora is a City of Opportunities

Aurora is home to some of the nation’s biggest employers, including Lockheed Martin, ADT Security, Kaiser Permanente, Amazon, and Staples.

It’s also home to University of Colorado Hospital. The city is home to thousands of medical professionals employed in both the private and public sector.

The population of Aurora is booming once again. It’s reminiscent of the time when it was the fastest growing city in the United States.

These employers also present opportunities for entrepreneurs and small business owners who support the backbone of the economy.

Aurora's Farmer's Market

You Like Big Cities with a Small Town Feel

The population is over a quarter of a million people. Yet, there is more of a small town feel in the city.

Take, for instance, weekly events like the Farmers Markets, Movies on the Square, and a Summer Concert Series at Aurora Municipal Center Great Lawn.

These are the types of events you’d only expect to see in towns a fraction the size of Aurora.

You Want a Home that Embraces Diversity

Aurora is a community in the heart of America but represents a cross-section of the world.

The city has become home to a considerable portion of Colorado’s refugee population.

And the city is home to several authentic markets that make these residents feel at home and introduces others to something different, including Carniceriala Guadalajara, Carmine Lonardo’s Italian Deli, and H-Mart.

It’s clear this American city is embracing its newest residents.

Nightlife in Aurora, CO

You Love the Night Life

If you’re one to spend a great night out on the town, then consider Aurora a Colorado hotspot. And the city has local spots that suit anyone’s tastes or lifestyle.

Connoisseurs will love Canoe Room or Flavor of Havana. Those who like to let loose for a casual evening with friends will enjoy Majestic Saloon or Launch Pad Brewery.

There are numerous places to grab a bite, places that will have foodies busy for a long time trying tastes from across the globe.

This city is a great place to grab a classic American burger and fries at a place like The Hideaway Lounge, some authentic Mexican cuisine at Casa Gutierrez, or great Vietnamese offerings from Pho 888 Vietnamese Noodle & Grill.

You Need to Work on Your Short Game

Aurora is home to 11 public and private golf courses, including several award-winning municipal courses.

But if golf isn’t your game, there is plenty of open space around the city for other leisurely activities. There are more than 100 parks and thousands of acres of open green space in Aurora.

These are just some of the reasons to move to Aurora right now. From a distance, the city looks like a small town but it’s got the amenities anyone might expect from a big city anywhere in the U.S.
