This fall, we’re challenging you to Love Your Local – everything! Love your local brewery, bakery, nail salon, golf course, boba tea, and every business in between. When you support the Mom & Pop shop down the street, you’re helping build a stronger community that we all can enjoy.
We want to help you uncover the local businesses in our community. All month long, we will be spotlighting local businesses and we'll close out the summer with $1,000 worth of prizes in our "7 Days of Giveaways", starting October 1st! You can win gift cards, freebies, and features just by entering our contests. With more than 250 eateries in our city, it’s no wonder we’ve become a destination full of flavor.
Loving your local businesses begins with you. Explore our page to learn more about Love Your Local.
As our destination slowly begins to ease travel restrictions, we are working hard to understand the issues facing small businesses, hotels, and our partners. Our team has created a comprehensive recovery plan outlining our marketing, sales, and promotion efforts of the destination in response to the effects of COVID-19.
Aurora’s small businesses make our destination unique. From eateries, breweries, boutiques, and everything in between – shopping local makes a difference in our community. Explore these 6 ways to support small businesses and restaurants.
A large portion of Aurora’s more than 250 ethnic eateries are offering delivery or take out options during this time and will continue to do so. Including Korean BBQ, Mexican taquerias, mochi donuts, Italian eats, and so much more. From quick bites and breakfast foods to contemporary eats, see for yourself who's offering delivery and carry-out options. Please be sure to call ahead before ordering or reference the business's website and social media channels for the most up-to-date information and guidelines.
Understand how Aurora’s attractions are opening to the public. Their individual websites and Facebook pages offer the most up-to-date information, including modified hours, regulations, and contact information. When visiting attractions including shopping, dining, museums, memorials, and more – ensure you are following CDC regulations on social distancing and party separation. Some retail and restaurants are open for public dining; however, takeout and delivery remain a primary option for many as they minimize contact. Each business has specific guidelines to uphold, and public safety is a top priority.
