Tour, Dine & Shop your way through Old Town Auburn (For more information see web links below)

Exit I-80 at OId Town Auburn and you don't have to squint your eyes to imagine how one of California's oldest historic districts appeared during the Gold Rush. Muddy streets have given way to pavement, but many of the original structures and much of the texture and charm of this enclave live on vibrantly Old Town Auburn is much more than a rest stop, though you can gas up and grab a quick meal here if that is all time allows. Old Town is a special place; a living link to a raucous time in history, when the saloons, hotels and "sporting houses" were jammed with gold miners, soldiers and fortune seekers of all kinds.

This compact set of twisty streets is set in a narrow ravine and boasts a core of over 60 restaurants, bars, unique shops, genuine antique stores and basic services. Your visit here can last all afternoon or an entire evening. Nearly all of the historic structures of Old Town are still at work, many functioning in new ways, housing contemporary businesses. Twelve restaurants in all serve as a lure for visitors from all over.

Authentic antique shops line Commercial Street along with gift and specialty shops that draw enthusiastic shoppers from around the region. Old town boasts handcrafted jewelry shops, art galleries and specialty stores with products ranging from clothing to kitchen accessories to collectibles.

Old Town Auburn is the location for special events all year 'round, starting with an every-Saturday-morning Foothill Farmer's Market featuring Placer Grown fruits and vegetables. Spring and fall antique street fairs, a summertime blues festival, a fall wine festival and two weekends of country Christmas highlight the calendar. Stop by on your way or make plans to spend quality time in Old Town Auburn. It's a great place to relax and enjoy a slice of Old California's pleasures and treasures.
