North Aurora Illinois

North Aurora IL
Founded in 1834, the Village of North Aurora is nestled in the beautiful Fox River Valley about 35 minutes directly west of Chicago. North Aurora is the pinnacle of suburban living and features an active, vibrant community while still maintaining a small-town atmosphere. The village occupies an almost ideal location located on both sides of the Fox River just north of I-88. Most homes in the community have easy access into the City of Chicago by expressway or the local BNSF and Union Pacific West lines of the Metra commuter rail system. North Aurora’s heritage as a river community is undisputed and the village has been quick to embrace the natural and scenic advantages of the river valley. North Aurora has recently adopted the motto, “The Village with a view to the future…”, highlighting the community focus of continuing economic development and improving the way of life for its residents.
