Great Climate - Outrageous Views Posted On: 4/2/2008 5:03:11 PM
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.
