There is always something to do, Aurora because it is one of the most interesting and diverse suburbs in the larger metropolitan area. In the last decade, numerous immigrants have settled in Aurora, the third-largest city in Colorado. On Parker Road, one of Aurora's most important streets, Indian groceries share shopping-center space with Pakistani video stores, Korean barbeque restaurants, and other ethnic eating and shopping options. The center of Aurora's immigrant culture is H-Mart, a massive Asian grocery store on Parker Road with an excellent food court. The Dim Sum is fantastic from many of the restaurants in the food court! Other Aurora attractions and things to do include the Aurora History Museum, which regularly holds shows by local artists in addition to their informative displays on the city's history and culture

My neighborhood is amazing! It is the ideal neighborhood where neighbors communicate with each other on a regular basis. We've welcomed newcomers, we've received baked goods and treats from others during the holidays, we are part of a neighborhood watch and best of all the neighborhood is safe. I also love the diversity of my community, it simply gives us the perspective that we know each other's struggles and strengths. There are plenty of unselfish services that go on throughout the year, like shoveling snow for the elderly and aiding those who have lost a loved one and the neighborly love that is felt during those times is what makes this neighborhood amazing.
Aurora is a really convenient place to live! There is so many places to eat and shop it's not even funny. I find that most places in this area are pretty walkable, but as with any big city you want to keep your eyes peeled. I would certainly recommend moving to this area if you want some of the city feel, but don't want to be in the thick of it by living directly in Denver city center itself. It's pretty affordable and convenient for college students.
