Aurora is the third largest city in Colorado and it happens to be the 71st best city to live in nationwide. Why do people want to move to Aurora?

The city is extremely family-friendly. The city has a variety of family-friendly attractions, such as the Aurora Reservoir, the Plains Conservation Center, and the Stanley Marketplace. The city also has a strong sense of community, with many events and activities that are designed for families.

Aurora is also a relatively affordable place to live, which makes it a great option for families on a budget.

The largest city in Colorado is the 59th best city to live in America. I have a lot of family members that want to move to Denver because of Downtown Denver.

Any night of the week there is a major event in Denver.
