What to see and do in the Auburn area this fall
The City of Auburn was settled by John Harper and others from the state of Georgia in 1836. The city’s name was inspired by Oliver Goldsmith’s poem “The Deserted Village,” specifically from the first line of the poem: Sweet Auburn, the loveliest village of the plain. The city received its charter from the Alabama State Legislature in 1839. According to Encyclopedia Alabama, Auburn is located in Lee County in the Piedmont and Coastal Plain physiographic province of the state. During the Great Depression, around 696 acres of land were dedicated to creating Chewacla State Park and the 26-acre Lake Chewacla. Today, this impressive acreage received the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor for five years in a row. Auburn also is the home to Auburn University founded in 1856. If you’re traveling to the loveliest village on the plain this fall, we recommend you add the following restaurants, activities and lodging to your list of must-dos:
