Aurora is a the state's third largest city, located just east of Denver in central Colorado. It has emerged from a budding frontier town of ranchers and farmers in the 1800s to a growing suburb of the 1950s into the prosperous city it is today. With a mild climate and 300 days of sunshine per year, majestic mountain views and plenty of things to see and do, Aurora makes a wonderful vacation destination. There are year round special events for all ages, such as the Fourth of July Spectacular, Gateway to the Rockies Parade, Trout Tournament, Concerts in the Park, KidSpree and PumpkinFest. All types of recreational activities are available in Aurora, including two reservoirs for swimming and sailing, miles of hiking and biking trails, and the Morrison Nature Center along the Sand Creek Greenway. The city of Aurora also has seven award-winning golf courses, miniature golf and a special 14.5-acre "wheel park" for skate boarding, bicycle motorcross and more. Aurora also offers historic sites, such as Centennial House and the DeLaney Farm Historic District, along with a thriving downtown art district, museums, and fabulous shopping and dining. In fact, it would be hard not to find something you enjoy doing in Aurora. For anyone visiting the central Colorado area, Aurora is convenient to all the major attractions, such as the Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds and Pikes Peak Cog Railroad.

Aurora Weather & Climate

North-central Colorado has a semi-arid, continental climate with over 300 days of sunshine per year. It's a common misconception that due to its close proximity to the mountains and world-class skiing, that north-central Colorado has harsh winters. This is not entirely true. While there may be occasional bitter temperatures, storms do not last long. Periods of snow alternate with mild periods. The snow quickly melts with the mild daytime winter temperatures. The hottest months are July and August with an average high temperature of 74 degrees. The coldest month is January with an average temperature of 30 degrees. This region has four distinct seasons, and being along the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains means weather patterns are subject to rapid, volatile, yet brief changes.
