The Colorado city of Aurora has a laid-back vibe that appeals to just about everyone — from millennials to veterans to immigrants to retirees.
Located on the southeast side of Denver, Aurora is less than an hour away from the Rocky Mountains, so you’ll have ample opportunity to hike, ski, snowboard and explore on the weekends. Plus, the city is actually just far enough away from the mountains to give you some pretty incredible views (the sunsets here will regularly inspire you to stop what you’re doing and snap a photo).
You don’t have to leave town to take advantage of Colorado’s mild weather, either. Aurora is home to six public golf courses, plenty of lakes for fishing and standup paddleboarding and miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking and biking.
