Not as many shops as I thought there would be. and all the shops closed at 5 even on Saturday.It was close to the highway and plenty of hotels close by. Also lots of trendy places to eat at. Its the halfway point between airport and Sacramento

when you walk the streets of old town Auburn you are transported back to the early 1900's. The architecture of the period is everywhere and the shop owners are pleasant and accommodating to visitors. Grab a bite to eat and relax.

Travelers take a quick detour off of Hwy 80 and take a step back in time! Stop in for a quick meal at one of the many, excellent restaurants and take a little historical stroll through town! A welcoming and truly special place!

We stopped in Auburn on the way back from seeing the Foresthill bridge and were shocked to find a few of the stores closed for business on a Friday during the day. However we did visit the old fire station and a few antique stores. This town is full of them!

Old Town Auburn was really cool to visit...neat atmosphere. Challenging parking if you have anyone with you with mobility issues...we quickly gave it up and parked in a well-situated pay lot.

This is a fun and historic town with plenty to see and do. There are lots of shops and places to eat. Plenty of history to explore and learn from the area. It's a beautiful foothills town in the gold country with friendly people and interesting places. Worth spending several hours to explore.

Has a little bit of everything: history, fun shops, great food, beautiful area. This is a nice place to stop on your way to the mountains or other local recreation areas.

Kind of a sleepy town. Lots of stores and galleries. Many were closed on a Monday. Enjoyed the historical markers of buildings and sites. Wish more things were open Lots of street parking. Couple of food places. Check the huge statue of a miner on edge of town.
