Auburn Alabama is a city in eastern Alabama renowned as home of the Auburn University. The college first opened its doors in the remote 1859 and due to the ever increasing influx of students over the following decades, the city and the university synergized. The city itself is unofficially called 'The Loveliest Village On The Plains' which embodies the youthful energy which runs through it. We will take you on a tour of the city whose lightheartedness and simplicity might appeal to you if looking for some unwinding or just passing by. Upon arriving to Auburn, head for some refreshment at the Toomers Drugstore. Their lemonade became famous over the years, and the store is a kind of landmark by itself, especially considering it has been there since 1896. Grab a meal at the Ariccia - Italian Trattoria and Bar: their fish and vegetables plates will certainly excite your taste buds. Afterwards you can relax with an espresso on the sofas by the fireplace in the lounge room. When in Rome, do what Romans do! Visit the Auburn University campus. Find the historic Samford Hall, sit (or lie down) on the grass and observe the architecture and the listen to the murmur of the ages/students (depending on how poetic you consider yourself). If you get a chance pass by the Samford Hall at night for it gives a mesmerizing impression when lit up. Considering the fact that the Auburn University is, in addition to being one of the most esteemed colleges in the South, a powerhouse in college football, take a look at the tributary granite plaques on the downtown sidewalk. If you get a chance, go to one of the games and let the euphoria of the entire town overwhelm you (if Auburn wins, honor the tradition and throw some toilet paper on the Toomers Corner tree). You can go antique shopping and find a distinct souvenir or visit the always different exhibitions at the Julie Collins Smith Museum of fine Art which will welcome you with a chandelier made out of a myriad of colorful hand-blown glass fragments. If nature calls out for you, head to the Chewacia State Parks and enjoy the waterfalls sceneries, take a hike or a bike ride through its many trails, set up camp and spend the night stargazing. The Louise Kreher Forest Nature Center should satisfy your natural cravings with its geological diversities and golf lovers should find Moore's Mill Golf Club suited for their needs. After a tour you just made, you should have experienced a multitude of positive interaction with the people you came across, your belly should be full, your throat and muscles a bit sore, a souvenir (assisting the local economy of the lovely town you spend some time in) should be in your pocket and you should be a bit thirsty - find way to the Avondale Bar, have a cold beer or a glass of fine wine and keep that grin which Auburn put on your face for at least a month or two. If you feel it fading, come back, Auburn always welcomes you!
