Welcome to The Loveliest Village on the Plains! Auburn is the largest city in eastern Alabama and home to Auburn University. This charming southern town has so much to offer - between collegiate sports, art-centered events, concerts, parks, and city-sponsored functions, there's always something fun to do! We see many college graduates move away after completing their education, only to come back to make their home here. The locale has been featured in countless articles over the last few years citing the city as a favorite place to live and retire.
