Aurora vacation rentals

See Denver from a different angle in Aurora

Located just to the east of Denver, Aurora is an ideal base for visiting the cultural sights, trendy bars, and stately architectural gems of Colorado’s capital. But Aurora is far more than just an outlying suburb of Denver – there’s a lot to see and experience here, from a mouth-watering array of multi-ethnic restaurants serving up delicious world cuisine, to local breweries pouring out distinctive craft beers. You can make yourself at home in an Aurora vacation rental, with ranch-style family pads ready to accommodate your clan as you explore this gateway to the Rockies.

Outdoor excursions in Aurora

Fancy a round of golf? Aurora vacation rentals put a number of sumptuous courses within moments of your front door, including the expansive Heather Ridge Golf course, which is open to the public. On a hot day, there’s no more enjoyable way to cool off than visiting the Aurora Reservoir, where you can make a splash at the beach, or try your hand at paddle boarding and fishing. If you’re here with the kids, they can expend all their excess energy at Great Plains Park, where they can scamper around in water fountains and the children’s playground.

History and culture in Aurora

For a fascinating glimpse into the past, make a beeline for the Aurora History Museum, which has exhibits on the region’s past, as well as a special hands-on section where families can literally get to grips with artifacts, crafts, and games. If that leaves you hungry for more history, you can also check out the William Tanner House Museum, which was built in 1857. Its Italianate design, and antique-filled interiors, will make you feel you’ve stepped back to the Victorian era. In the mood to take in a live show? Head for the Aurora Fox Arts Center, which is set within a building date back to the 1940s, and now puts on flamboyant musicals and thought-provoking plays.

Any time is a good time Aurora

When to book an Aurora vacation rental? Well, thanks to its proximity to the ever-bustling Denver, you can enjoy a memorable, activity-filled getaway at any point in the year. If you want to get your hiking boots on and see the swathes of parklands and nature reserves in the region, late spring and fall are a good time to come if you want to enjoy fine weather and dodge the soaring heat and big crowds of summer. That said, if you’re a snow sports buff and want to hit the slopes of the Rockies, winter is the season for you.

Sprawling natural beauty in Aurora

You don’t have to head out to the Rockies to get a taste of the big American outdoors. Cherry Creek State Park is much closer to Aurora vacation rentals, and boasts tranquil, rolling prairies alongside a vast, shimmering lake, so whether you fancy hiking, biking, boating or bird-watching, this natural oasis is the place to be. You could also head just north of Aurora to visit the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, where bison and prairie dogs roam amid lush flowers. There are miles of walking trails crossing through the wilderness, or you can simply take a drive past the wetlands and woodlands.
