Aurora is the second-largest city in the U.S. state of Illinois, located about 35 miles west of Chicago. It is probably best known for being the setting of the "Wayne's world" movies
By Car: Aurora is just off the East-West Tollway (I-88) in Illinois. Take the Route 31 exit south.
By Train: Aurora is part of Chicago's Metra commuter rail system, the last stop on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe line which leaves from Union Station in the Loop.
By Bus: Greyhound makes a stop at the Aurora train station on its Chicago-Des Moines-Omaha route, but the express buses will not stop there. Also, the Aurora train station is a local hub for PACE, the Chicagoland suburban bus service.
By Air: Aurora has a small municipal airport of its own, but the best way to go is to fly into one of the Chicago airports (O'Hare or Midway) and just take the train or a taxi to Aurora.
