Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

For my Show us Your Life post today, we’re telling about you live. I live in Auburn, AL. It has grown so much since I moved here in 1996. I really love the quaintness of this college town. There’s lots of the perks of a large city, just in a smaller setting.

Population: around 55,000

6 miles to Opelika, AL, our “twin” city
35 miles to Columbus, GA
55 miles to Montgomery, AL
100 miles to Atlanta, GA
215 miles to Pensacola, FL

Our city is equipped with nice biking paths, 11 public parks, many walking trails, and a state park.

The downtown area has really changed during the 14 years I’ve lived here. All pretty much for the better. College hangouts/bars scattered among several good restaurants, barber shops, little boutiques, etc.
