North Auburn, CA is a small township in Placer County centered around Highway 80 and Highway 49. It is a bedroom community and I just love living here. It is in the lower mountains of the Sierra Nevada and the area is surrounded by mountains, green pines and streams and lakes.
Most of the citizens work in the Sacramento or Auburn area, a short commute from here. Some of our community work at home as well. We have several wonderful local diners, and my favorite is Awful Annie's, which is not awful at all. Every weekend has a choice of outdoor events to choose from and hiking, running and biking is big here.
North Auburn has limited events in the evening, but a short drive to Auburn, the county seat, offers a large variety of clubs, stage and concerts. For top notch entertainment, it is a short drive to Sacramento, Reno or Carson City.
Ranching is a popular activity here and many ranches offer family days throughout the year. Yes, this is still gold country, and you can pan for gold, too.
