North Aurora is a small town populated with big people. Although our Randall Commons only consists of small businesses such as a tiny nail salon, a local liquor store where no one has ever won the lottery (yet everyone still tries nonetheless), and everyone's favorite Chinese restaurant, you are greeted with welcoming people and cheap prices for the best services in town. North Aurora isn't your typical small town on the outskirts of a new age, it's more than that. It's a place that you can call home no matter where you come from. Whether you are just passing through or simply walking your dog a few blocks from home, you catch a glimpse of the people living here. They are good people. Family people. People who simply want to get by and do so by simply giving you a small smile of genuine grace. Enjoy your time in North Aurora; a small town filled with big hearts.

I have lived in North Aurora, IL for almost two years. It is a quiet suburb of Chicago. The area offers easy access to major highways, restaurants, stores, etc. My neighborhood is pleasant with nice neighbors who are very welcoming.
I've been a resident of North Aurora for 22 years. I love that it's a small township right on the edge of Batavia and Aurora. It makes it easy to find things to do. There are a lot of restaurants and activities to choose from all within a 2-5 mile radius. The area is really popular for its bike paths and river walks. I really like how the community is so diverse. It's a great place to raise children because they are emerced to many different cultures, races, ethnicities and backgrounds. I have enjoyed growing up in this area and can't think of anything I would change.
