Setting & Lifestyle
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy.

If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Aurora is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
One downside of living in Aurora is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Aurora, the average commute to work is 30.39 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
As is often the case in a small town, Aurora doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
