In recent years, Aurora has shifted from its rich agricultural roots to an urban business hub. Just minutes away from the Denver International Airport, the city is home to several major industries, including aerospace and defense, renewable energy, bioscience and health care, and transportation and logistics. Businesses large and small are welcomed and nurtured here. Such programs as the Aurora Advantage 4 Business and the Aurora-South Metro Small Business Development Center exemplify Aurora’s commitment to luring some of the top businesses in the nation. Despite the bustling urban scene, Aurora strives to preserve the beauty of Colorado. Here, you’ll find more than 100 neighborhood parks, open prairies, and majestic views of the mountains. In addition, Aurora has six golf courses, two reservoirs, and over 5,000 acres of open space and trails. The city and the surrounding areas continues to be one of my favorite places in all of Colorado (I did grow up here!).
