We went to shop a little and go the wine bar. There is a lot of parking available and a shuttle. We found quite a few shops with items we wanted to buy. We ended our visit with a stop at the Carpe Vino wine bar.

Carpe Vino is and excellent gourmet restaurant with an incredible wine selection. Ask for Jana Kosmata, she really knows her stuff.

This is a classic old gold rush town, nice shops and restaurants. Nice day out shopping or just a stop off the hwy on your road trip.

We drove around the town and after a bit took a short walk through the old town. The weather was quite hot so I think a walking tour is best in fall or spring. The city hall is beautiful and the homes in town are charming.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I recently went to the Auburn Alehouse (see my review), and we walked around for a while both before and after. It's fairly well restored. There are a number of good restaurants, interesting shops and an art gallery or two. We always enjoy walking around to see the menus and what's in... More

Had a couple of hours to spend in Old Town Auburn. Such a calm and quaint little town. Lots of local eateries, bars and shops. My favorite places are Bootleggers restaurant. My favorite shops are Sierra Moon Jewlery, the Sliver store. It's a must stop and see place on your travels through the Foothills!

A lovely town from the Gold mining era, historical as well as interesting and fun shops. I KNOW you'll find something you cant live without! Several excellent eateries for many taste buds.

I enjoyed a trip through Old Town Auburn. Lots of restaurants. Shops had good quality items for sale. At Serendipity, they gift wrapped my purchase with a smile for free.

I first came into Old Town Auburn in the late 90's. It so charmed my midwest upbringing I thought I had walked into the Wild West for sure. Then as now antiques,art and buildings from the 1800's lined the streets. Old taverns and live music then. Today the streets are a bit different the California Club remains,the old firehouse, but...

Auburn is an adorable, quaint town off Highway 80. It's a great place to visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner as a destination in and of itself or on your way to North Lake Tahoe. Awful Annie's used to be in Old Town but recently moved to a bigger location off Highway 80. It's a great for breakfast and lunch... More
