DescriptionThe mission of the Auburn-Opelika Tourism Bureau is to serve as an economic enhancement tool for the communities of Auburn, Opelika and Lee County. We promote and develop our area through the travel and tourism industry and introduce the unique spirit of Auburn-Opelika to visitors from around the world.

The Auburn-Opelika area is voted Golf Digest’s “#1 Golf City in the United States.” Courses available include the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National, The Auburn University Club, Indian Pines Golf Course, Saugahatchee Country Club and more.

Auburn, founded in 1836, takes its name from a line in “The Deserted Village,” a poem by Oliver Goldsmith. “Sweet Auburn, the loveliest village of the plain” is a line that has become so eponymous of the community that it is difficult to recall which inspired the tradition.

Auburn has been home to Auburn University since 1960. Visit during football season to hear the Auburn Tiger’s roar and watch the eagle soar. Visit the famous Toomer’s Corner to have a taste of the best lemonade in the country since 1896. Don’t forget to take a picture with Auburn’s most lovable mascot, Aubie.

The city of Opelika reflects on heritage and hospitality with its Northside Historic District. Railroad Avenue, also located in Opelika, is the lively center of a restoration and preservation effort by the citizens of Opelika.

Different times of year bring different events to the Auburn-Opelika area. Contact us to find out more about Auburn CityFest, Syrup Soppin’ Day at Lochapoka, The Market at Ag Heritage Park and more.

Between activities, be sure to visit one of our choices for “Incomparable Dining” in the area. These independent restaurateurs and talented chefs have created unique establishments with specialty dishes you’ll find no where else in the world.

The Auburn-Opelika area has a wide variety of lodging facilities to suit any taste. Located close to these facilities are an array of bustling historic downtown shopping districts, chic village centers and a traditional open-air mall.

Auburn-Opelika has a unique spirit you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Experience the history, heritage and hospitality that bring this community to life and make it a place that, although you may only visit, will always feel like home.
