We love wandering the streets of Old Town Auburn, stopping to peek into the antique shops, maybe grabbing a bite to eat at Cafe D! So much history, friendly shop owners, and just a fun way to spend a few hours!

My son and I made a quick stop to Old Auburn. Cute and quaint. Didn't eat lunch but the restaurants looked good. Stores were just so-so. A few good ones. Public restrooms were clean. Lots of stairs!

Old Town Auburn was nothing special. We were looking forward to a day spent in an old town enjoying shopping and appreciating history. However, we were done in just a couple of hours and had to discover something to do for the rest of the day.

Good way to walk off the big breakfast we just had. Quaint little shops to shop. You will be walking up and down a slight incline and increase the burn of that brealfast or lunch.

Old Town Auburn is amazing!!! It's beautiful, historic, convenient..... There is always some event going on, it seems. Visit the courthouse/museum. Pose for a selfie in the gold miner statue's pan. Enjoy a meal and a stroll. Bring your camera!!!

Gold was discovered in Auburn in 1848, just after the discovery in Coloma, a short distance away, that started the historic gold rush of 1849 and beyond. Old Town Auburn is where it all began and you can enjoy a good meal and brew at the Auburn Ale House before exploring the area. Sites to see include the old Fire... More

Old Town Auburn and its adjacent areas are fun to visit. The old court house museum, shopping in gold rush buildings, and plenty of eateries. Good wine shops and a great beer pub nearby. Great place to stop on your way to the Sierras.

Auburn is a great stopping off place for people traveling from the Bay Area up to the Sierras. The old town has a number of buildings dating back to the gold rush days, including a firehouse, post office and various shops. Today, the old town has a number of galleries, restaurants and bars. Well worth a visit, and a tourist... More

But with nice freshness! New places are opening up all the time. The Ale House has the best brewfood I have ever eaten. The beer is top-notch too. It can get loud in there...and speaking of loud...the ambiance of this entire Auburn area can be ruined by the LOUD roaring Harleys that can be in very close proximity to the... More
