Auburn is known as The Loveliest Village on the Plains for a reason. There is a true sense of community and a certain enchantment from the moment you arrive. The town is flourishing with residents and businesses alike, all who work hard and support each other to ensure Auburn remains the place everybody falls in love with. Auburn has received numerous accolades over the past decade to reaffirm this, including the following shortlist mentions: Forbes Best Small City For Jobs in the US, Southern Living’s Best Small Town For Living, Nerdwallet’s Most Educated Cities in the US and Milken Institute’s Best Performing City for Economic Growth in the US.
Auburn is continuing to prosper and grow, largely due to the hub of the town being Auburn University. The town has a diverse population, with a significant international presence due to a large number of international students enrolled at Auburn University. Many other foreign nationals live and work in the community, and it is estimated that two of three residents are from other parts of the country, creating a cosmopolitan feel.
With Auburn University being in one of the top athletic conferences, the SEC, many people are drawn to the town all year round to support all the major sporting events. Beyond the crowds that are drawn to Auburn to watch sport, Downtown Auburn is bustling with retailers, fine dining, casual dining and great nightlife. Toomer’s Corner is the focal point of downtown, an Auburn tradition dating back to the 1800’s - trying the lemonade at Toomer's Drug Store is a must!
Auburn has everything you need in one location, without being an overpopulated and crowded city. There is something that draws in everybody as Auburn appeals to university students, young professionals, young families and retirees alike.
