What to do in January?

Historic Aurora is a great winter day trip, minutes from Portland or Salem, just off I-5 Exit 278.

You’ll find 23 cozy shops and restaurants in our tiny town.  (Most are within a 5 square block walking area – the others are just blocks from village center.)  So, no problem with the weather!  Convenient parking, public restroom, family friendly.
