Why Live In Auburn, Alabama?
"Auburn is a city in Lee County, Alabama. It is the largest city in eastern Alabama and is the principal city of the Auburn-Opelika Metropolitan Area. Auburn is a historic college town and is the home of Auburn University. The city's unofficial nickname is "The Loveliest Village On The Plains," taken from a line in the poem The Deserted Village by Oliver Goldsmith: "Sweet Auburn! Loveliest village of the plain..." A series of reports in the 1980s and 1990s ranking the Auburn public school system among the top in the state and nation convinced thousands of new residents to move to Auburn over the past 25 years. Between 1980 and 2003, Auburn's population grew by 65%, and Auburn's economy expanded by 220%. Auburn has a humid subtropical climate marked by mild winters, early springs, long, hot, muggy summers, and warm autumns. Due to its position near the Gulf of Mexico, the city receives a significant amount of rainfall. Winters are typically mild. Auburn's economy is centered on Auburn University and providing university-affiliated services. Auburn's industrial base is built around mid-sized, high high-tech manufacturing and research firms. Auburn has one industrial park and four technology parks where the main areas of industrial focus are on the manufacture of small engines, automotive wheels, fuel cells, plastic injection technology, and vehicle armor. Auburn is located between the Kia and Hyundai automobile manufacturing facilities with the Kia Motors manufacturing plant about 35 miles (56 km) east on I-85 and the Hyundai Motors manufacturing plant about 55 miles (89 km) west on I-85/I-65." - According to Wikipedia
