The old town is a couple streets wide and a couple blocks long. Nice walking with several shops and restaurants. There are several large mining monuments and machines along the walk that go back to the gold rush.

Lots of choices of really good restaurants, shops and historic buildings. Very walkable with plenty of view corridors and little parks. 1890's feel with modern conveniences without ruining the vibe.

Sometimes it is just great to get out of the daily rush and step into history. Old Town Auburn lets you return to the days where people were true to themselves and others.

Old Town Pizza is fantastic. Love the mix of shops. Auburn Alehouse is our favorite restaurant in Auburn. We love the Fish and Chips and Burgers.

Went there for a reception dinner at the Pizza place with kids and it was great. We had a party of 22 and the service and food was great.

Old town has a variety of antique stores, jewelry shops, and great places to eat. If you're looking for some adult beverages, Old Town can satisfy that need as well.

You will find great food, fun shops and walk among historic buildings from the California Gold Rush. This is a great place for a pit stop on your way east to Tahoe and Reno or on your way to west to San Francisco.

Interesting to see what the area looked like as if during the mid 1800's during the gold rush era. Remnants of a past long gone by. Such an amazing American and Californian part of history. Worth a visit passing thru Northern California.

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.
