Living in Aurora essentially means you live in Toronto, since you’re never more than a half hour away from a lifetime’s worth of galleries, theatres, shopping hotspots, sporting events, zoos, landmarks, museums, and beaches.
Still, Aurora's residents aren’t completely dependent on “Hollywood North” for fun and games. The city is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise that includes more than 700 acres of parkland and 25 km of scenic hiking, biking, and skiing trails. Other health-and-fitness-minded amenities include 3 ice arenas (go Leafs!), 9 tennis courts, 20-plus baseball diamonds, and multiple championship golf courses.
Aurora also lays claim to its fair share of cultural attractions, including the Hillary House heritage site and Theatre Aurora, where the community’s own troupe of thespians performs regularly. And if you’re in the mood to shop, dine, or sip an adult beverage or three, you’ll find an eclectic mixture of eateries, services, galleries, and heritage sites dotting the streets of charming downtown Aurora.
