From Aurora, follow the Ohio river RT 56 southwest. After you pass through Rising Sun, route 56 will head east and away from the river and it is here where you need to switch to and take it into Vevay, IN. Stay straight through town and the road will turn into Hwy 56/Route 56 and head west still hugging the river as it goes all the way to Madison, IN. From Madison take Hwy 142 north and split off on Route 62 heading northeast and up through Friendship and on to Dillsboro, IN.
The scenic route along the Ohio river to Madison has some great views of the river, make sure to stop at Belterra Casino and have a bite to eat and try your luck on some table games. Lots of room in the parking garage to escape some rain if needed. Once you get to Madison stroll the downtown streets with unique shops and a lot of antique stores. The trip back from Madison to Aurora, take Rt 62, beautiful landscape and some great Amish farms along the way. It is one of the best scenic routes I have been on. On your trip back stop by Friendship and see the famous muzzle loading shot.
Road was good with plenty of turns as it follows the Ohio River for much of its path. And, there really wasn't much traffic to deal with.
Your traveling threw many small towns in Southeastern Indiana, a lot of places to stop, can be a day ride if you take some "breaks" along the way. Plan on a sunny day to see lots of action on the Ohio river. Have meal in Madison, walk threw downtown stores, then great ride back threw Friendship on 62.
