It's a small town with good people. Everyone's friendly and the crime rate is almost nil. if you are looking for a private, friendly town, Auburn is right for you!
I was born and raised in this little town. It is a town, where everyone knows everybody. Auburn is a safe, convenient place to live. Auburn is the country side of the tri-city area. I could live here for the rest of my life. This small town has a range of people, but we all get along. Auburn has to be one of the safest places in Michigan.
