Eating in Auburn is an experience, thanks to many great restaurants that call the area home. Stop in at Athens Pasta and Pizza, located on East Main Street, for what is said to be the best pizza in all of Auburn. They certainly are not fancy, but the pizza is sure to please. For those who love food from south of the border, Rio Blanco Mexican Restaurant is the most highly rated Mexican restaurant in the area. Located at 3830 A Street SE # 201, the restaurant serves all of the usual Mexican fare, including burritos, quesadillas, and other delicious options.
Auburn has plenty of history embedded in its architecture, and this is clear when visiting the downtown area. Originally developed in 1850, the city has continued to grow while keeping a bit of the original charm in place. Serious historical preservation has meant that many of the original buildings have been kept up, and this provides history and architectural buffs with an interesting experience. The White River Museum is a must for those interested in history, as it paints an excellent picture of the development of Auburn in its early years.
Visit Mount Rainer
Auburn is very close to Mount Rainier National Park, with Mount Ranier being one of the most famous mountains in Washington. Mount Rainier is known for its rolling sub-alpine meadows, all of which are dotted with wildflowers in the summertime. Mount Rainier itself is comprised of an active volcano and guided tours are available for those who want to climb the mountain. For a more subdued approach, cabins can be rented in the area surrounding the base. Mount Rainier ascends nearly 14,410 feet into the air at its highest point for absolutely breathtaking views.
