What Bert Has To Say About Auburn-Opelika Metro Area

Auburn, home to Auburn University, the largest in Alabama, is a typical small college town with an inviting campus and attractive historic buildings in a nicely laid out downtown. Standout features include high educational attainment and low unemployment. While the Cost of living Index is very attractive for a college town, home prices are relatively high for the region but still reasonable on a national scale. The economy was once driven by agriculture, primarily cotton, then the university.
