Just 25 minutes from Portland or Salem, you can’t beat Historic Aurora for a relaxing yet stimulating winter destination! With 24 shops including antiques, vintage, wine tasting, garden, delicious eateries, specialty retail (a candy factory and a new miniatures shop!) plus the outstanding Old Aurora Colony Museum, it’s no surprise that this little village is repeatedly listed as a top national attraction.
Aurora is open year around with many shops open 7 days a week. Shops open between 10-11am and close at 5pm. You can park your car for the day (for free) and easily walk the 5-square block area where most shops are located. The others are within a short driving distance. A centrally located public restroom is great for families. RV parking is also available.
