Aurora Reviews

Aurora is a small town in Nebraska that most people have never heard of. It's a cute town with old buildings that line the square. The people in Aurora are very passionate about the town and the school's sports and other activities. The citizens are also kind and generous, they host food banks, and goodwill donations at the fair grounds. Aurora is a family town, with a diverse age range from young children to the fragile elderly. There are beautiful parks and churches for you to spend your time in. There are also many groups and activities available to the public here.
Review Aurora
I absolutely loved Aurora. Living there from the time I was born, I was able to enjoy the little things that Aurora offered. And whatever Aurora didn't have, Grand Island wasn't too far of a trip to take. I still go back every now and then to see family that still lives there and can't think of a better place to be.
I like that Aurora is a small town where everyone knows everyone. The community is friendly and they support the school and all of its activities.
