Aurora is a city located in the U.S. State of Colorado and spans three counties, Arapahoe, Adams and Douglas. Aurora is currently home to over 325,000 residents, making it the third-largest city in the entire state. Aurora is located near Denver, and is actually a principal city of the Denver-Aurora-Bloomfield Metropolitan Statistical Area, and the entire metro area – also known as the Denver Metropolitan Area, for short – is home to over 2.6 million residents.
Aurora began life as Fletcher in 1891, and was founded by a businessman who was looking into selling real estate in the area. The city grew slowly, and was all but abandoned after the Silver Crash of 1893, though some residents still stayed. After some time, the name was changed to Aurora (Latin for “dawn”), and until the end of the Second World War Aurora remained a relatively small, tight-knit community. Expansion happened rapidly during the subsequent decades, with many people moving to the burgeoning Denver bedroom city, and Aurora was actually the fastest-growing American city in the 1970’s and early 1980’s. Today, Aurora is a major economic and political powerhouse in the Denver area.
Average daily highs in Aurora closely mirror that of Denver, since the city sits so close. Average daily highs usually only reach into the low-to-mid 80’s during the day, with overnight lows usually dropping into the low-to-mid 60’s. Winter brings some bad weather, with average highs barely getting above freezing more often than not and overnight lows continually dropping down into the low teens and even single digits. Snow is common, and as it sits right next to the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, it can be difficult for auto shippers to routinely get to and from Aurora during the winter months.
