Aurora, Colorado is a 144 square mile city with a population of 285,000. Aurora offers residents access to 2 reservoirs, 80 parks, 7 public golf courses, 8,000 annual recreation programs, and just short drives to Downtown Denver, Denver International Airport and the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
I am very partial to the beautiful neighborhoods located in Southeast Aurora including: Beacon Point, Southshore, Sorrel Ranch, Wheatlands, Piney Creek, Heritage Eagle Bend, Tallyn’s Reach, Saddle Rock South, Greenfield, The Farm, Blackstone Country Club, Adonea, and Kingsborough. But, don’t let my list limit you – there are tons of options to choose from!
Much like many cities, it is important to understand what section of the city you want to live in. Some may be more of the “art district” feeling, some may be new construction, some may have tree-lined streets with great lots and middle-aged homes, while others may offer more affordable pricing with smaller and older houses. Recently, when building a new website with our website developer I expressed that we wanted our subareas to be broken down by zip code, most specifically in Aurora. He told me “nobody knows zip codes, they know cities” – I disagreed! Because Aurora is so large most people living here understand that to better identify where they will feel most comfortable living, they should narrow their search by zip code.
Aurora is home to 12 zip codes, including 80019, 80011, 80045, 80010, 80220, 80017, 80018, 80012, 80014, 80013, 80015, and 80016. These zip codes range from locations North of 170 and as far south as E470.
So, before you cross this city off your list, take a look around, do your due diligence and open your minds to expand your horizons.
