The scenic city of Aurora, OH, is set between lakes and forests, and is filled with fine dining and shopping opportunities. This city has everything you could wish for on fun family vacation. Aurora is located 30 miles southeast of Cleveland, via I-480 and US-422, and connected to Twinsburg and Warren. Booking one of the RV rentals in Aurora is not just a convenient way to see all that this region of Ohio has to offer, but the best way to get out of the city and into the great outdoors.
There couldn’t be a better place to start exploring Ohio’s many natures preserves, forests and wilderness areas. Within a 30-mile radius of Aurora are several places of interest, including Tinkers Creek State Nature Park, a wetlands area and prime location for spotting wild beavers, reptiles, amphibians, and bird species. Also nearby is Mosquito Lake State Park, a 2,500-acre lakeside wilderness area with boating and camping facilities plus hiking trails. Punderson State Park is about 20 miles from Aurora and is a popular location for winter sports.
If it’s a bit of watery waves and sun you're looking for then Headlands Beach State Park and Geneva State Park should be on your itinerary, both are located northeast of Cleveland on the banks of Lake Erie. The first is perfect for hiking, swimming, and sunbathing, while the second is equipped with camping, boating, and cabin facilities. Cuyahoga Valley National Park shouldn’t be missed either. A short distance from Akron, the park hosts a variety of wildlife species and native plants as well as the 100-mile-long Cuyahoga River, over 125 miles of hiking trails, the 65-foot-tall Brandywine Falls, a scenic railroad, and the Towpath hiking/biking trail along the Ohio and Erie Canal.
If you’re happy to drive the extra miles in your Aurora RV rental, then the Allegheny National Forest is a nature lover’s dream. The forest is located 130 miles away in the neighboring state of Pennsylvania and in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Anyone interested in backpacking through the park should take a glance at the 96.3-mile National Scenic Trail or the short but challenging 11.4-mile Morrison Trail. There is also the 7.4-mile Minister Creek Trail, a tough day hike southwest of Sheffield, as well as plenty of easy to moderate level day hikes. Allegheny National Forest is popular with mountain bikers and horse riders as well as hikers. During the winter it’s an excellent spot for ice skating and cross-country skiing. The Tracy Ridge Hiking Trail System has over 33 miles of trails which are suitable for cross-country skiing as well as hiking. If you’re not so physically active then don’t write off the Allegheny National Forest just yet. There are also a number of ATV and snowmobile trails, boating activities, and scenic driving trails for you and your Aurora motorhome rental, not to mention local towns with wineries and breweries to visit. The most breathtaking views are from Kinzua Sky Walk in Kinzua Bridge State Park.
There are quite a few parks and places to set up camp with the camper rental near Aurora. Woodside Lake Park is a family-friendly campground located between Aurora, Cleveland, and Akron. The park has RV campsites with full hookups (including 30 or 50-amp electric, sewer, and water). Another campground in the area is Roundup Lake Campground in Mantua. It has RV sites and, in addition to the usual amenities, they offer a swimming pool, a sandy lakeside beach, four playgrounds, sports courts, a game room, wagon rides, and Friday movie nights. This campground is pet-friendly too.
Another spot to consider is Hidden Valley Campground which sits between spring-fed lakes and pine forest. It could be a good place for water sports enthusiasts who want to visit the nearby West Branch State Park. If you do decide to take rent an RV and drive to Allegheny National Forest, you’ll find many campgrounds and parks too, including Kane RV Sites and High Pines RV Park.
When you’re ready to head back to town with the Aurora travel trailer rental, schedule a day to enjoy the highlights of the town before the end of your RV vacation. You can take a stroll in the Veterans Memorial Park, catch a movie at the theater, or shop in Barrington Town Center.
Meanwhile, on the outskirts of town you can unwind at one of the local wineries, where you can easily while away an afternoon tasting locally distilled wines and dining on luxury cuisine.
Alternatively, visit the one of the golf courses in town and aim for a hole in one, shop at the outlet mall, or make a visit to Aurora Sanctuary and State Nature Preserve. The latter is perfect for a sunny afternoon walk and educational trip. The preserve is home to four lakes, native wildlife, oak-hickory and beech-maple forests, and easy walking trails. Other popular recreational parks just a stone’s throw from the town center include Sunny Lake Park, Liberty Park, Aurora Lake, and Kiwanis-Moore Park.
