About Auburn

 

Explore the sporty Gold Country town with a booming local beer-and-wine scene

History and modern culture merge with outdoor adventure in this appealing town on the west side of the Sierra Nevada. While Auburn has long been an easy pit stop for travelers heading to and from Lake Tahoe’s north shore, the town has plenty of reasons on its own for sticking around for a spell—especially if you like to move. Auburn claims to be home to the most challenging and historic endurance sports events in the world, like the prestigious 100-mile/161-kilometer Western States trail running race. The area is also a mecca for mountain bikers, hikers, and horseback riders, who all take advantage of trails lacing the Auburn State Recreation Area, which protects the confluence of the North and Middle Forks of the American River (both forks are popular whitewater rafting destinations.).

As more vintners join the “Gold Crush”—a local reference to Placer County’s growing number of wineries—so does the chance to relax at nearby tasting rooms, where the guy pouring the wine is often the winemaker too.

LANDMARKS

In addition to the region’s bustling wine scene, two award-winning breweries have put Auburn on the map when it comes to the craft beer boom. Moonraker Brewing Co. has emerged as one of Gold Country’s hottest brewers, best known for its Northeast-style IPAs (commonly called “hazy IPA”). Moonraker’s tasting room and brewery features indoor and outdoor seating with food trucks. Just a short walk away, Knee Deep is a popular microbrewery known for its West Coast–style IPAs. Like Moonraker, it offers a welcoming, dog- and kid-friendly atmosphere.

Good beers and wines attract good restaurants, and Auburn has a bumper crop lining the streets in the handsome Old Town district. Art galleries and shops selling antiques and collectibles abound. Wine grapes aren’t the only crop that grows in the area; citrus varieties thrive here too, and you can get your fix at the annual Mountain Mandarin Festival, held in late fall at Auburn’s Gold Country Fairgrounds.

    Being a first time homebuyer, Mercedeh was a dream to work with! Her knowledge and ability to explain the process was invaluable. Not only is she an expert in real estate, she also makes herself available at all times. We had a few questions along the way because she anticipated what we’d want to know, and got to know us well enough to mitigate most inquiries by being 3 steps ahead of us. From start to finish, she never left our side and held our hands through some of the most intimidating decisions we’ve ever made. She ensured our comfort throughout the process. She’s a pro, she catered to us individually, and she’s a new great friend. Her positivity is unmatched!
