What kind of local traveller are you: foodie or sightseer?
One of the cutest cities we like visit in #YorkRegion 
is Aurora! Located a bit north of Toronto, Aurora is a city with small town charm, family-friendly neighbourhoods and, of course, a lot of places to explore!
Looking 3-4 years back, every time we’re in Aurora I see a massive difference in infrastructure and overall development. There are so many new interest spots as well as places for a night out with friends and family. A perfect mix of historical and urban facilities makes it an ideal place to discover.
Here is my list of the best places you should go to when visiting Aurora!

🍽 Food:

  • Locale Aurora – Italian inspired restaurant with the tastiest appetizers and pizzas.
  • Bijoy’s restaurant – a great place to have High Tea or dinner with friends! Cozy little restaurant with delicious food. And I know that a lot of you will need this – this place is vegetarian-friendly and has gluten-free options.

🏛 Historical Places:

  • Aurora Historical Society & Hillary House – Built in 1862, Hillary House is recognized by the National Historic Sites and Monuments Board as one of Canada’s best examples of Gothic Revival architecture.
  • Aurora Cultural Centre – from adult & children art classes and workshops to concerts & events this place is not only beautiful on the inside, but, as you can see absolutely gorgeous from the outside.

🌳 Parks:

  • Case Woodlot – Woodchip walking trails, perfect for a brisk walk on the weekend!
  • Tim Jones Trail & Arboretum – 126 acres trail system with beautiful greenery.

🚌 Transportation:

  • Go train & bus
  • YRT/Viva buses

🛣 By car:

  • Major roads running through Aurora include Bathurst Street at its western border, Yonge Street, Bayview Avenue, Leslie Street, and Highway 404.
