Great place to live - 6/18/2012

Aurora gets a bad rap, some if it deservedly so, but it's still a great place to live in no small part because of the climate. There are a few hot days in the summer, but for the most part it is never uncomfortably hot. Summer is my favorite season because it is so sunny usually and warm. It's a bit windy in the spring, as are all parts of Eastern Colorado. Winters are fine. You get snow from time to time, but there are usually only a few total weeks in the winter where it is truly uncomfortable outside.

Not a bad place to live - 3/2/2012

We came here from southern California via Cheyenne, WY, and have lived here for five years now. I would say nearly everything-- entertainment and cultural venues, educational institutions, eateries, etc.-- about Aurora is OK, average, bordering on just plain boring, not terribly exciting or outstanding in any way at all, but not bad, either. (Oh, the drivers here are completely retarded and drive according to whatever the inner voices tell them to do). Aurora has been a good stopping off place, but we haven't found any convincing reason to stay here in a place this committed to mediocrity.

Sunny Days... - 2/7/2012

It's so great waking up to sunshine almost every day. Even in the winter and it's only 20 degrees out the sun is shining. We have very few overcast depressing days. I'm originally from Seattle and tried to move back there a few years ago and just couldn't handle the overcast dreary days. If the sun energizes you and makes a difference in your outlook this is a great place. This winter has been pretty snowy and chilly but on the days when it's not snowing, the sun is shining bright. The summers are beautiful. My only complaint is that it's pretty dry, so I have a humidifier that I run in the winter since the furnace takes any moisture out of the air. The climate here is pretty ideal if you like the 4 seasons and don't mind the cold winters.

Love winter, spring & fall, but summer a little to - 4/15/2010

Wow, until you reside here, you can't appreciate the heat of the sun! The term "sunburn" is accurate to describe the summer sun in the Denver area-it does burn! That being said, the sun in the other three seasons is a wonderful, almost daily, treat!

Living in Aurora - 12/12/2009

I have lived in various locations in Aurora. I lived at a very attractive well kept up apartment complex with good maintenance. Most of the original neighbors I had were very good neighbors. When more people from other areas came to live where I lived they started causing all kinds of trouble and the crime went higher the more the neighbors didn't care about anybody but themselves. I moved into another area that was a safe nice place to live until the drug dealers and substance abusers made it a living ----. But I started a Neighborhood Watch and it irritated the "bad apples" enough to get them kicked out or they moved on or they learned to become better neighbors. I think some people just need some education and positive role models and we can all be better neighbors and look out for one another. We should all teach the children in our neighborhoods to be polite and courteous and respectful of one another. We all come from unique backgrounds and cultures and maybe we can learn something good from each other. Aurora is one of the most diverse cities in the country and is still a great place to live. Nice parks, libraries, museum, shopping, restaurants, sports, fitness, entertainment,and great transportation systems. And you can still make it Downtown in 30 - 45 minutes on a good day. I recommend living in Aurora.

All around place to live - 5/21/2009

I came to Aurora from the Northeast and I'll have to tell you, there is more good than bad here. It's kinda slow but not as a little po-dunk town. I think the people make the most out of it. Everyone is pretty nice so it has that South East feeling but has a lot more to do. If you like outdoor activities, mountain climbing, bike riding and running can be done in some of the best weather. We have all the major sports and even minor sports in the ones we don't have.

weather - 5/9/2009

I HATE snow. I HATE winter. I HATE being landlocked. I HATE reservoirs. I want to live where there are lakes/oceans, where the people aren't stuck up and backstabbing.

Why people live in Colorado... - 4/16/2009

Yes, the cost of housing is expensive, but where else do you have 300 days of sunshine and blue skies, exciting outdoor activities year-round, nationally ranked public schools (Cherry Creek School District),and your choice of exceptional colleges/universities. Denver Metro Area, Colorado!

Great Climate - Outrageous Views - 4/2/2008

The southeastern edge of Aurora provides outrageous views of the Rocky Mountain "Front Range." We share a 150 mile view from Pike's Peak in Colorado Springs to Long's Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. Coming from the midwest, I can only say the climate is what we enjoy most next to the montains. There is little humidity and the sun shines almost everyday. Yes, we have some snow but not like the mountains. We've had less than 18" this year and most of the snow melts within days. We seldom wear heavy coats. Aurora has its less than desirable areas like many large cities; however, we find it a great city to live in. We're 20 minutes from sports facilities hosting the Colorado Rockies, Denver Broncos, and Denver Nuggets. Denver is a progressive city with Boulder and Colorado Springs just 45 minutes away.

Winridge Apartments and Townhouses - 1/21/2008

I have been living in Winridge for about a year. When I first applied for an apartment, they told me my rent would be a certain amount and I applied for a 6-9 month lease. After I moved in, I later receive a notice saying that I had to pay water/sewer (which would increase my rent from what I agreed on) then when my six months were about to expire, I called the office in hope that maybe they forgot about information to send to me about my new lease. Come to find out when I first moved in they had changed the lease from 6-9months to 1yr. When the snow hits, there is no plows to remove snow from the parking lot, they still have not come to do any maintenance in my apartment, no matter how much I call to have them come check out/ticket the problem. Now, they are boosting my rent once again if I renew my lease. Just want good customer service for a nice place to live with my family!

A-Town - 7/10/2007

I have lived in Aurora, Colorado all my life. The location is great, close to Denver, close to the mountains ect. However, there are good areas and bad areas! Unfortunately more bad than good.

Aurora: not a place to visit or live! - 2/5/2007

Aurora, along with any city here in Colorado does a great job marketing themselves as a cosmopolitan, clean and wonderful place to vacation, with plenty of work.... NOT TRUE... My family and I moved here from Nashville TN to avoid the crime rate and pollution, and thought Aurora, being outward from the entire metro would be a convenient fit. This place is a disgusting rat hole- every landlord seems to have "luxury standards" based on some third world country that's been recently firebombed- the work is very limited, and almost everyone is encouraged to take handouts. I have an IT degree and can't find anyone willing to pay what I'm worth although I've been recently recertified. To top it all off, the pollution is so bad, my husband, myself and my children have all had recurring blisters in our noses- the doctors say it's common for people to get those and they should "go away some time". BTW, the docs here are terrible- my newborn son was subjected to unnecessary medication for 15 days after a horrible misdiagnosis! We're working as hard as we can at whatever job we can find so we can save up and move away. Don't come here unless you like sharing your home with rodents and insects (our pest control expenses are about $150 a month) and can put up with terrible plumbing, housing and plenty of drugs, crime and lack of motivation!
