Old Town Auburn has a large array of great restaurants that fit any price range. It has many historical sites and antique and curio shops. It also has bars and even a local brewery. The access is so simple, 100 yards right off the Maple St. Exit in Auburn!

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!!!
