Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers is an independent bookstore in Auburn, AL featuring a specially curated selection of books, cards, and gifts as well as custom-made drinks (complete with a coffee menu inspired by local authors). Their namesake pays homage to a family business from a time when a gas station was a filling station, a place where you knew each other, where someone came out to your car to fill up your tank, clean your windshield, and catch up a bit. At Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers, you can know a friendly face, fill your brain and your belly, and maybe see a little better when you leave. Not for Sale.

You can access your security cameras anytime, anywhere and get alerts when visitors are detected. You can store video clips and recorded audio to the cloud.Neighbors. Meet your neighbors and exchange numbers. Watch their homes when they’re gone and ask them to watch yours for any suspicious activity.

War Eagle - Auburn University's battle cryEver wonder why people in Auburn, AL say War Eagle? According to the Auburn University website:"War Eagle" is Auburn's battle cry, not a mascot or nickname. The most popular story about the battle cry dates back to the first time Auburn met Georgia on the football field in 1892 and centers around a spectator who was a veteran of the Civil War. In the stands with him that day was an eagle the old soldier had found on a battlefield during the war. He had kept it as a pet for almost 30 years. According to witnesses, the eagle suddenly broke free and began majestically circling the playing field. As the eagle soared, Auburn began a steady march toward the Georgia end zone for a thrilling victory. Elated at their team's play and taking the bird's pre...

The Floral Dog Park in Opelika, AL is a really nice place to take your dog to play with other dogs. It is also a great place to meet really nice people. The Floral Dog Park has 2 fenced in areas. One area is for small dogs and the other area is for larger dogs.  Floral Park is one of my dog's favorite places to go. He loves to run and play off-leash which is a great outlet for his overabundant energy.  Location is 600 Floral Street in Opelika, AL.Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Preferred Real Estate, Best Auburn Realtors, Best Opelika Realtors, Relocate to Auburn, Move to Auburn, Homes for sale in Auburn, Homes for Sale near me, Houses for Sale Opelika, Luxury Homes for Sale Auburnwww.AuburnOpelikaALRealEstate.com

The SportsPlex at Auburn University "This project includes the construction of additional softball, and multi-use lacrosse/rugby/soccer fields to provide more capacity for outdoor intramural and club sports. The completion of the SportsPlex in spring 2020 is the culmination of Campus Recreation’s long-term goal to expand the Intramural Field complex. The existing facility was constructed in 1979 when Auburn University student enrollment was approximately 18,000. The complex consists of 15 acres on Biggio Drive. Since that time, student enrollment at Auburn has increased to over 25,000 students without any increase in recreational field space on campus. Fields are heavily utilized by over 10,000 participants and more than 1,000 intramural and club sports teams annually. The lack of adequ...
