Things To Do

Aurora, the second largest city in Illinois and its surrounding areas have you covered when it comes to entertainment! We have a diverse arts and renowned theatre scene. Also be sure to venture into one of the many restaurants the area has to offer. Everything from casual, trendy, ethnic, pub-fare to formal dining we guarantee the experience at one of our local eateries will have you coming back for more. And when the sun goes down, take advantage of our vibrant nightlife featuring live bands from across the State.

For the kids try one of the historic museums, local sporting events and our beautiful zoo. Coming during the summer months? Aurora boasts the largest outdoor waterpark in Illinois. Treasures abound as you explore this dynamic community only an hour drive from downtown Chicago.
