Upstate NY village named 'America's Best Kept Secret' by Country Living magazine

Aurora, the college town located on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake, has been recognized by Country Living magazine as "America's Best Kept Secret."

To prove its point, the magazine listed 11 reasons why the charming small town is worth another look. They include the town's historic buildings, the popular Inns of Aurora, MacKenzie-Childs and its Finger Lakes setting, which includes Long Point State Park.

In 1976, the entire village was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and several buildings were given national landmark status.
