Aurora is the third largest city in the Metropolitan Denver Colorado area; Aurora is divided between Adams County (to its north) and Douglas County (to its south). Aurora was founded in 1891 by a local real estate tycoon by the name of Donald Fletcher, Fletcher named his new town after himself, Fletcher. Fletcher abandoned it just two years later leaving Fletcher’s citizens high and dry with huge bond payments and water that never existed. Fletcher was renamed Aurora in 1907.
Aurora interstate highways: I-70, I-225, and E-470. The Regional Transportation District’s “light rail” system serves parts of the southwestern area of Aurora. An extension along I-225 through the city connects with the “Light Rail” line between downtown Denver and the Denver International Airport. Sections of Aurora are more convenient to Denver International Airport (DIA) than Denver. Many airline employees reside in Aurora. If you are looking for a convenient commute to “DIA” as an employee or frequent traveler than Aurora Colorado Real Estate may be for you, Search our special IDX feature and find Aurora Real Estate listings and homes currently for sale.

The “LIGHT Rail” project is currently scheduled for completion in 2015. This proximity is a factor in the expected growth of the E-470 corridor directly south of “DIA”, projected to eventually accommodate 250,000 additional Aurora residents.
Aurora is bordered by Denver & Centennial to its west, Watkins to its east, Denver to its north, and Greenwood Village, Centennial, Foxfield and Parker to its south.
