East Aurora is a small town with many things to do. In the town there is a movie theater, little shops, restaurants, and much more. It has a small town feel to it and is very family friendly. Vidlers is one of the stores that are on Main Street which has something for everyone in the family. It's also nice to just walk up and down Main Street on a nice day. There may not be many things for adults to do but it's still a great town to be able to live in. If you live in town it's easy to ride your bike or walk anywhere you would like. Overall, East Aurora is an amazing town and i would definitely recommend either moving or visiting there.

I grew up in East Aurora, and since graduating from college have returned home before I leave for law school. East Aurora is a small town with a very unique culture. As our Instagram page describes it, "East Aurora is not a locality- East Aurora is a condition of mind." This is a perfect description. I would not trade my childhood and the friendships this town has given me for anything in the world. It was truly a beautiful place to grow up and a place I may one day return to raise my own family.
There is always something to do. Small boutiques. Plenty of coffee shops. Artsy atmosphere. People are very friendly. Small town feel. Short drives wherever you want to go. Many places are walking distance. The houses are nice and affordable.
