Aurora Information

Once a budding frontier town of farmers and ranchers just east of the state's capital, Aurora today is Colorado's third largest city with more citizens than such cities as Orlando, Fla.; Rochester, N.Y.; Baton Rouge, La.; Little Rock, Ark.; and Salt Lake City. From agricultural outpost to military bastion, Aurora established its foundation as a driving force in the West. And the rest is history.

Some of the top choices for visitors around the city include:
