Relocating?

Welcome!  Auburn is a remarkable community with a high quality of life, an exceptional educational system, and a strong economy!  We’ve enjoyed much growth in recent years but still enjoy that Southern small town feel, where the people are warm and friendly.   As the home of Auburn University, 2011 BCS National Champions and 2013 SEC champs, you won’t find a more exciting place to be on Saturdays in the fall!  Year-round, Auburn and the surrounding communities have something for everyone.

Discover Auburn!   Our active, thriving community offers:

  • excellent, award-winning public schools
  • award-winning recreational programs for children and adults

  • ample shopping, dining, and night life
  • #1 public golf course in the United States (Grand National)
