Toomer’s, Auburn Alabama

This weekend, we thought it would be nice to spend some time over in Eufaula, but we only made it as far as Phenix City (that’s really how it’s spelled) and Columbus, Georgia. We had such a great time!

For some reason, I didn’t realize that we were going to go through Auburn on our way. I haven’t spent much time there since I was in college at Troy, but we saw some of the campus and also drove through the historic residential district in Opelika. Beautiful.

For lunch, we stopped at Toomer’s Drugstore in Auburn. It is right on the corner where Auburn fans paper the trees after a victory (actually, papering the trees is actually hurting them after all this time!). The Auburn Forestry Club sells seedlings from these trees’ acorns for $55/ea.

Toomer’s is a old drugstore but really it’s a lunch spot and a place to buy t-shirts:

They sell paper here too, for decorating:

Our lunch was pretty good, and of course we had one of their famous lemonades:

Shug had a great time!
