Old Town Auburn is tiny, but has a lot of character. There are several excellent eating places and pubs. All the buildings have historic value and are well-preserved.

Last time I was there (about a year ago) most shops were quiet by 5:00 pm on Saturday. Restaurants are about all that is going after that.
