Located halfway between San Francisco and Reno on Interstate 80, Auburn is enjoying a renaissance buoyed by its central location to many gold-rush sites, outdoor recreation opportunities, and thriving farms and vineyards. The self-proclaimed "endurance capital of the world" is abuzz almost every summer weekend with running, cycling, rafting or kayaking, and equestrian events. Downtown Auburn has its own gold-rush charm with narrow climbing streets, cobblestone lanes, wooden sidewalks, and many original buildings. Fresh produce, flowers, baked goods, and gifts are for sale at the farmers' market, held on Saturday morning year-round.
