Welcome to Aurora
Once a budding frontier town of farmers and ranchers just east of the state's capital, Aurora is Colorado's third largest city with a diverse population of more than 381,000. From agricultural outpost to military bastion, Aurora established its foundation as a driving force in the west, and the rest is history. Just minutes away from Denver International Airport, Aurora is home to a vibrant business environment, including major industries such as aerospace and defense, renewable energy, bioscience , health care, transportation and logistics. Tree-lined streets, open prairies, majestic views of the mountains and ample neighborhood parks make Aurora neighborhoods a comfortable place to call home. More than 450 neighborhoods complete the fabric of the community. Situated at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Aurora is a gateway to all Colorado has to offer, including more than 97 parks, and over 5,000 acres of open space and trails.
