The community is extremely close and always come together in times of tragedy. They have many activities, especially during the summer and fall, for all ages. Most of the activities are family friendly. There is not much crime in the area so overall it is a safe place to live.
Review Aurora
I love our little town and all it has to offer! Is a taste of country living without being to far out in the boonies. I think we could stand to have a few more options for places to eat and a few more stores.
It is a good town for a small farm town visit, but definitely not the best place to live in. People are typically friendly, but the drug usage is prominent.
