For the active senior, this city in the Denver metro area provides plenty to do. Before you start your search for Aurora senior living options, see what we’ve uncovered on this Colorado city.

As a city in a popular destination state, Aurora is relatively reasonable. The overall cost of living is 6% above the national average.

A private room in a nursing home averages $221 a day, while a semi-private averages $204, according to a Genworth Financial survey.

Aurora has more than 6,000 acres of open space, 100 parks and 7 municipal golf courses. There are also two reservoirs—Aurora and Qunicy—where you can ice fish in the winter and play in the summer. At Aurora Reservoir, you can rent kayaks and paddle boats, swim, windsurf, SCUBA dive, fish or just relax on the beach. The Aurora Center for Active Adults has a variety of programs for those 50 and older: day trips, hiking, fitness classes, computer classes, weight training, billiards, bingo, quilting, and other activities. You’re only 90 minutes from scores of world-class ski resorts like Vail, Breckenridge, and Beaver Creek.

Sitting along the Front Range, Aurora’s location provides opportunity for day trips to the mountains, cities like Boulder and Rocky Mountain National Park to the north with its hiking, bird watching, and elk viewing. And with downtown Denver only minutes away, there’s always something to do whether it’s watching a pro game--Broncos, Nuggets, Avalanche, Rockies—strolling the 16th Street Mall, or catching a show at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
