Auburn is a city in the Finger Lakes region of New York.

Get in

The best way to get to Auburn is definitely by car. For a city of its size (29,581 people according to the 2000 U.S. Census), it has surprisingly few public transportation options. It doesn't have a bus station or, for that matter, even a bus stop. Auburn is 25 miles west of Hancock International Airport in Syracuse.

Get around

See

Auburn's riches are outstanding—whether going to an Auburn Doubledays (farm team for the Toronto Bluejays) baseball game, visiting historic homes and museums, or taking part in the annual 'Great Race' triathalon, Auburn has something for everyone. Be sure to visit the nearby wineries and savor premium Finger Lakes wines. Hunters and Anglers will want to visit Auburn's Bass Pro Shops in the Fingerlakes Mall, the only Bass Pro Shops in the northeast. This is 'shoppertainment' at it's best! Hotels, motels, country inns and B&Bs are all available to suit every taste and budget, or those that love the outdoors can stay at one of the many campgrounds in the area. If shopping is your favorite past time, you'll love the many antique shops in and around Auburn as well as the famous MacKenzie-Childs, Ltd. furnishings you can purchase at their facility in Aurora, only 25 minutes south of Auburn.
