Local Lifestyle

Auburn is a great town for people seeking to be immersed in the quiet of nature. The outdoor recreation is easily accessible, gorgeous, and beginner to expert friendly. The Sierra Foothills are Auburn’s backyard and residents can spend their free time hiking, biking, fishing, and relaxing in some of the most coveted outdoor spaces in the country.
 

Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment

For a splendid taste of the Sierra Foothills, Restaurant Josephine is as good as it gets. This farm-to-table French bistro is an upscale rustic dining experience that sources its ingredients from its chef-owned farm. The menu is ever-changing but always reflects what is in season and the casual elegance of French cuisine. Traditional, elevated French favorites like moules frites and beef tartare are good examples of what you can find in their cozy dining room. Of course, a French meal is never complete without great wine and their list is a delicious array of both California and French wines. 
 
If your cuisine fancy takes you to a different part of the globe, Monkey Cat is another upscale treat. The dining room is a whimsical, island-inspired hang-out with a simple and refined menu. Flavorful filets, roasted chicken, and seafood are their specialties. 
 
Italian is a staple in everyone’s restaurant rotation and Auburn has Tre Pazzi Trattoria to satisfy the need. This is the place for traditional, bright cuisine that you won’t find at any average trattoria. From pasta alla norma to polenta lasagna, you’ll get both beloved flavors and new favorites. 
 
Another establishment where you’ll find new experiences is The Pour Choice, a joint coffee house and tap room. Here you’ll find the finest artisan coffee beverages and interesting microbrews on tap. They also serve a food menu of gourmet charcuterie, pastries, and sandwiches.
 

Things to Do

Being rooted in the fruitful land of the Sierra Foothills, Auburn is known for its access to fine food and wines. The Auburn Wine and Food Festival is the perfect opportunity to sample it all. Craftsmen, chefs, and local winemakers all come together in the summer to showcase their craft.
 
In the fall, the Mountain Mandarin Festival is another fun opportunity to get a taste of the area’s delicious produce and food products. For a whole weekend, guests can enjoy music, food, crafts, and contests all centered around Placer County’s nationally recognized mandarin crops.
 
If outdoor exercise is your thing, you’ll love  Hidden Falls Regional Park, complete with rolling green spaces, hiking and biking paths, picnic areas, viewing decks, and stunning waterfalls.
