What is the reason for you to choose Aurora? I moved from evergreen of San Jose to Broomfield. We really love it here!

We are looking at south Aurora, but I'm not sure. The CCSD is there and seems to be where everyone wants their kids to go.

I have family in Pueblo but my wife absolutely does NOT want to live there. We were there last summer visiting.

This is going to be hard. Aurora's crime rate is off putting ... I currently live in downtown San Jose and crime is just something we never have to worry about.

Had a feeling this topic would attract folks in California. I hope to soon leave for Western Colorado, when the time is right. Spent most of my years here, in the other South Bay (San Jose). Not originally from Ca. though. Do i still qualify as a Co. transplant when I get there? :-)

Agreed! I don't post in them much anymore, either, and a lot of them get closed before too long b/c of the fighting. I only lived in CA a few months, and my husband went to college there (we weren't together then), but I too get tired of Californians being blamed for everything.

My advice to any and all Californians relocating here is: Never apologize for having lived in CA.

LOL.

I am a Denver native, so I hope that 'counts' even though I've spent most of my life in California.

Someone asked why we chose Aurora ... no reason other than we liked what we saw when we visited last summer. We also like Colorado Springs and are now leaning that way.

Someone else mentioned that San Jose must be pretty rough, well it is consistently ranked in the top 5 safest cities in the country. Comparing numbers here to Aurora is very uhm, misleading. As someone else pointed out the bad parts drag the good parts down.

I think with Aurora south is better.

Just an update.

We bought a house in Thornton, CO. Been here just over a month now and are loving it!

Beautiful, quiet subdivision.

Only question I have that remains is "What took us so long?"

Yeah, what took you so long? I hope it wasn't the anti-California hatred espoused by some members on the Colorado pages. Welcome back to Colorado!

Maybe they got the idea finally? LOL JK

Same thing happened to us. We bought a nice house in '79, the job moved and we had to rent at a loss for 20 years before we could finally unload that albatross. I can't even calculate how much that misadventure cost us. I'll never buy again unless I'm confident my only future move will be to the grave yard.
