Aurora is a town in the Jackson Purchase region of Kentucky, which in turn is part of the tourism region known as the Western Waterlands. The town lies on the western shore of Kentucky Lake, the largest man-made lake in the United States east of the Mississippi River as measured by surface area.
Aurora is accessible from the east and west by U.S. Route 68 and Kentucky Route 80.

Most telephone numbers in Aurora consist of +1 270 plus a seven-digit number, but a second area code (+1 364) was overlaid onto the entire 270 area in February 2014. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call).
Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 270 before these if no area code is indicated.
