Aurora has come a long way since its beginnings as the tiny town of Fletcher in 1891.  It is now the third largest city in Colorado with a population of over 250,000.  Aurora was recently named the fifth safest city for its population.  It also placed ninth in the 50 Fabulous Places to Raise Your Family by Lee and Saralee Rosenberg.

Aurora covers three counties.  It is 135 square miles within city limits and 280 square miles yet to be developed.  A large part of Aurora's developing borders lead to the Denver International Airport which is a 15 minute drive from Central Aurora.

There are plenty of recreational activities in Aurora.  It has thousands of programs available through the Recreation Department, two public reservoirs for boating, swimming, and fishing, plus 80 parks and four public golf courses.

Aurora students are divided between two school districts; Aurora Public Schools and Cherry Creek District.  See Education for more on these districts.  

Community College of Aurora offers a wide variety of courses including online courses. Columbia College also proudly serves the military families in the area.  Those interested in training for technical careers should check out the T. H. Pickens Technical Center.
