Ravenna, the County Seat, is popular for having many antique stores in its charming, traditional-style downtown. In the rapidly growing areas of northern Portage County, Aurora has maintained the Western Reserve theme while accommodating small manufactur ers in numerous industrial parks. Aurora is also the home of Six Flags amusement park and the Aurora Farms, an 80 store factory outlet shopping area. Streetsboro, once a bedroom community, now boasts booming industrial growth along with retail expansion. Interstate highways place this area only 30 minutes from downtown Cleveland.
