Jordan-Hare Stadium

Reviewed By hugh65 - Auburn, Alabama

A very modern and first class stadium! It is very crowded on game day and parking of those days can be a nightmare! Be sure to arrive early for the Eagle Flight and the Auburn Band Pregame Show! The amazing SCOREBOARD Screen is on the South end of the stadium, so if you are buying tickets, think somewhere in the northern end of the stadium if possible. Concession are ok at best and the rest rooms are passable, but go early as there are long lines at halftime. The fans are what makes the stadium come alive, so go! War Eagle!!

Toomer's Corner

The heart of downtown Auburn and its university has been a special gathering place for college students, visitors and politicians over the years.

Reviewed By Pineapples-a-Plenty - Miami, Florida

We transited Toomer's Corner numerous times over our weekend at Auburn. The small town feel comes alive during a stroll down College Street. The sights and sounds harken back to a simpler time! The centerpiece of the downtown core is Toomer's, and well-worth a stop.

Chewacla State Park

Reviewed By SATraveler_11 - San Antonio, Texas

Nice park for overnight although our pull through gravel site was a bit tight, probably normal for a state park. Lots of great trees. We walked toward the lake and found that it was closed with no explanation as to why. We heard the waterfall...MoreWe thank you for your short visit. Please come back to stay a bit longer and we can show you where the waterfall is.

Reviewed By EnglishRose10 - Florida

Enjoyed a beautiful morning in this great outdoor space surrounded by nature and the gift of silence save for a few rustling leaves .....nice playground made up of ecologically friendly structures which were enjoyed by our two year old gran daughter while several of us hiked. The Fairy Garden was simply delightful and as we hiked we gathered materials to return to make our fairy garden. There is a beautiful amphitheater, outdoor classroom and many natural spaces to be enjoyed by all ages. A worthwhile visit!

Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art

Reviewed By Paul L - Montgomery, Alabama

When in Auburn we love to stop by this museum. It is not very large so we can get in and out before the children get tired. They have traveling exhibits come through to show new types of art. There is currently a video art display which a couple of pieces were mesmerizing, but most were odd.

Kiesel Park

Reviewed By goheelz - Auburn, Alabama

Kiesel Park is hands-down the best dog park in the Auburn area. Grounds are well-maintained by the city of Auburn crew, restrooms are newly renovated, disability access has been improved lately, and the trails are in nice condition. There is a very large fenced dog "play" are conveniently located within a short walking distance from the large parking area. The long walking trail is about 2.5 miles long, although shorter walks are also easily arranged. Bring your well-trained, friendly, socialized dog or your securely leashed, non-well-trained, non-socialized dog, and everyone will have a great time.

Southeastern Raptor Center

Reviewed By audocmo - Auburn, Alabama

open every Friday afternoon during college football season for Fun/Fans/Feathers show - you'll have owls, falcons, hawks, buzzards, and eagles flown right over your head and then systematically carried around the audience so everyone gets a good view. You'll learn about each species, and why that particular bird is housed at the Center, including Auburn University's bald eagle and golden eagle, Spirit and Nova, that fly in the stadium during AU home games. Outstanding - not to be missed!

Stopped in for a home stand against Ole Miss after watching the A-Day Game. The field and the fans were in great shape - however, the weather was quite a different story. Rain, rain go away. Wonderful setting, and seating, for baseball game!

Church Street Historic District

Home to several beautiful 19th-century houses.

Reviewed By PNRao - Cedar Falls, Iowa

Spanish Plaza park was created to commemorate the Spanish link and to commemorate Malaga, Spain. It is located between Church street and Government street. Beautiful statues and benches to honor the various cities in Spain were also present. A very pleasant park to know the Spanish connection to Mobile.
