Auburn may be called History's Hometown, but it still has a lot going on today. This city of nearly 27,700 in Cayuga County not only serves as the county seat, but also is a place where the arts thrive, where good food can be savored, and where old architecture prevails. Auburn also sits within the Finger Lakes region -- one of the northeast's most gorgeous areas. When all of that is put together, it's clear that folks can't go wrong if they make Auburn their home.
