Having been laid off in February & taking early retirement & loving history, I decided to check out the Aurora History Museum, which I hadn't been to for years.

I love this place. Like to ride here since there is not too much traffic it's perfect. I also take the kiddos here often for picnics. They rent out paddle boats and canoes. They also have volleyball nets and covered picnic tables. The kids also like the swim beach and the play ground. It's best to go during the week because summer weekends get packed here. I also know they have organized night fishing events! Never have tried it but it sounds fun!

My family and I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place! It is close to our home, and the ticket prices are much cheaper than any other theatres in our area. Plus they offer a military discount! We have always had great service and the staff is always friendly. The menu offers a wide variety of choices for meals, desserts, and drinks. The reclining chairs are awesome and the trays to eat on are convenient.
