Authentic old California

Authentic old California town with a bit of charm, right off the highway. Worth the visit. Some good food and drink there, too.

A wonderful place to go and enjoy the food and the quaintness of the place. It will be located in a different location soon. A place that is difficult to find parking and also is crowded most of the time especially on weekends because of the location of Old Town.

This is a great little area of Auburn. Many good restaurants and an exceptional store named Pineapple Pier. A great side trip on the way to or from Tahoe.

Quaint and charming although parking can be difficult- not overly "gussied up" for the tourists. One of my favorite gold county towns.Great for strolling. "Taco Tuesday" at many eating establishments. Auburn Ale House has good happy hour featuring brew of the day. Beer brewed on site. A nice mix of locals and tourists.Clean and not too slick. Highly recommend it!

Old Auburn has the look and feel of a Gold Rush town. Some of the old buildings are charming. Old Auburn also has a number of restaurants and small shops for those who want to meander along the old streets.

Very cute little section of gold rush town. I love the historic look and feel. It is getting much more artsy and trendy as more skiers stop on their way to the slopes or Tahoe. Many old faves are gone but new faves are good too. If you've seen Phenomenon it's fun to see the ways it is similar and... More

I love Old Town Auburn. Fun shops, historic buildings and good restaurants. We go there frequently to poke around on a pretty day. There is a great farmers market close by
