History and Southern charm rule Auburn vacation rentals

Home to Auburn University, Auburn is the self-described “Loveliest Village on the Plains,” which makes for the perfect getaway to mix nature, culture, and history. With fine art galleries and a lively football stadium, as well as traditional Southern cuisine and natural retreats nearby, Auburn vacation rentals offer families, sports fans, and travelers an engaging stay all year round. The local university scene bolsters Auburn’s modern offerings, while state parks and wildlife promise outdoor tranquility in one of Alabama’s fastest-growing cities, founded back in 1832.

Things to do

Auburn’s artistic and natural wonders

To enjoy Southern hospitality and school spirit, visit Toomer’s Corner, where Auburn University fans can be spotted sipping on the famous lemonade and shopping for souvenirs. The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art hosts evening jazz bands during the summer, while engaging exhibits are a relaxing way to unwind. The museum’s permanent collection includes works by Georgia O’Keefe, Diego Rivera, and James Audubon. The Louise Keher Forest Ecology Preserve & Nature Center provides a family-friendly setting to explore Auburn’s splendor on a hike. Pet-friendly Auburn vacation rentals aren’t hard to come by, so bring your furry friend along.


Auburn football and so much more

Taking in a college football game at Auburn University’s Jordan-Hare Stadium alongside 80,000 revved-up fans is by far the most iconic thing you could do here, but there are many other Auburn activities to enjoy as well. The area is well-loved for its fishing, hunting, hiking, and wildlife-spotting opportunities, and free state parks are open year-round, allowing you to watch the leaves turn in autumn or experience the rumble of the Chewacla waterfalls. For a cosmopolitan vacation, Auburn has no shortage of nightlife, shopping, and Southern history, making it a top destination for bachelor weekends or family trips.


The sweet Southern comfort of Auburn’s climate

The Auburn weather forecast is what you might expect for the South—warm summers and mild winters. While Auburn University’s football season draws visitors in the fall, this college town stays vibrant all year. Travelers seeking summer rentals in Auburn are pleased to learn that the weather remains sunny, yet there are plenty of ways to cool off and enjoy the temperate climate—from zipline aerial parks and hikes along lakes and streams to taking in a summer baseball game at Plainsman Park. Winter snowfall is unlikely, so hunters, hikers, or weekend shoppers can venture outdoors around Auburn anytime.

Natural features

Auburn’s natural setting

Resting on the meeting point of the Piedmont Plateau and the nearby coastal plain, Auburn offers some of the most varied geography of any Alabama city. Hollows and hills beckon outdoor enthusiasts to the north, where Chewacla State Park boasts the last foothill of the Appalachian Mountains. Hunters, anglers, hikers, and bird-watchers searching for Auburn vacation rentals will enjoy the green, woodsy landscape, made diverse by the plateau and coastal plain the city was settled upon. With two watersheds—the Chattahoochee and Tallapoosa River—Auburn geography is lush with creek systems prime for recreation and sunset views.
