One of the largest cities in Illinois. It is one of the earliest cities to have electrical lights installed (hence its nickname the City of Lights). Abraham Lincoln once gave a speech at one of the older downtown buildings. It also is the acclaimed home of the star's of "Wayne's World" (although there haven't been any reputable sightings of them). A good portion of Aurora is generic, sprawling, middle-class suburbia. If you meet anyone from Aurora outside of the state... they'll probably tell you they're from Chicago. Even though it's a good hour drive down I-88.
"My name is Wayne, and I live in Aurora, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Excellent."
