1. Overall Co.

It’s all about the atmosphere, carved  tables, whimsical robot sculptures, live music, and the homemade popsicles. Located in Downtown Opelika, the Overall Co.  offers a unique atmosphere conducive to studying, relaxing, or a night out with friends. Move this one to the top of your Auburn bucket list. Overall Co.

2. Chewacla State Park

Chewacla is one of Auburn’s hidden gems, and the perfect spot to visit in summer. You can canoe, fish, swim, camp, hike, or hang with your dog and eno in a spot beside the waterfall. Close your books or bring them with you; either way, visit Chewacle for some fresh air and a small escape.


3. Mama Mocha’s

Choose your coffee, pick a chair, and embrace your inner happy hipster.mama_mochas_store_front

4. Samford Lawn

Picnics, frisbee, enoing, and classic photoshoots-all in front of the original building of Alabama Polytechnical Institute. It doesn’t get more “Auburn” than that!


5. Downtown Opelika

Downtown Opelika is an experience of its own and (hint) the perfect place for a date. Slightly removed from the college town , it’s a great place to shop, dine, and unwind. We love its quaint, quiet cultural appeal.
