Auburn can be a great place to live under the right circumstances. While the prices are fairly affordable and there are great restaurants, the people may not always be the most welcoming to outsiders. Many people who live in Auburn grew up in the town or in a surrounding area, so they have lots of family nearby. For those who are not related to someone in or around Auburn, the adjustment may be difficult.

Auburn is the perfect town to start a family. You know most of the people in town and there is good support within the community!
I have only lived here for a month and it reminds me of the place I grew up when I was younger. It's a very good place to raise kids. The only thing that I would change would be if there groucery stores were a little more price friendly. The people are so nice and it's a very close community and everyone tends to wave at everyone. I have also noticed that rents are so much cheaper then what we were used to living in Wichita, Ks.
