A Road Reb’s Guide to Auburn

Where to eat, drink and relax this weekend in Auburn, Alabama

The time has come to pack our cars and drive to Auburn to support the
Rebels. Follow this guide to have the perfect away-game experience!

Where To Eat

Acre
If you’re missing the feel of Oxford, go to Acre, where you can get familiar Southern cooking while experiencing Auburn’s historic downtown area. Their goal is to “interpret the complex, traditional tastes of the Deep South in a totally fresh and modern way.” Check it out!

Other Activities

Toomer’s Corner
One of the state’s most famous landmarks, Toomer’s Corner is a staple of both the city of Auburn and the University. Best known for their lemonade and ice cream, stop by and visit before or after the game. But be warned: Auburn fans emphatically throw toilet paper on the trees right after an Auburn win. But that won’t happen, right?

The Game!
Go inside Jordan-Hare Stadium and cheer on our Ole Miss Rebels. Although it’s not The Grove or The Square, if you follow this guide, it will be like you never left Oxford!
