Step into Summer in Aurora

Make a stop in Historic Aurora this week as the season changes for the better!


If you’re heading toward Rose Festival activities, you’ll find us as a great stop-off coming or going.  If you’re wanting to avoid crowds in Portland, you’ll be assured of a relaxing time with plenty of free parking, too.

Aurora is just 25 minutes from Portland or Salem, located on old HWY 99E and easily accessible from I-5 Exit 278.  Free parking, public restroom, RV parking too.

You’ll find one of the West’s most popular destinations for antiques and vintage goods, housed in authentic buildings within our National Historic District which includes the Old Aurora Colony Museum, 24 shops, wineries and eateries and even a candy factory!  Stores open Sundays too!  Many stores open on Mondays.

Pick up the FREE Walk with Emma self-guided walking tour brochure at the museum or at downtown shops and acquaint yourself with Aurora’s quirky history as you browse the shops!

The tour can be started at any point within this easy walking tour of about four square blocks.

You can rest on our Aurora Colony style blue benches as you go!
