AUBURN, AL (WTVM) – The city of Auburn has made Southern Living Magazine’s top ten list of the south's best small towns.

Readers chose Auburn as the seventh best small town in the south and the sixth best gameday tailgating experience in the South.

The magazine wrote: “As any Auburn Tiger can tell you, this small town in rural Alabama is addictive, with tree-shaded streets and great old storefronts. Together with sister town Opelika, it gives students and locals interesting options for food and drink, not to mention live music.”

The magazine polled more than 20,000 people across the country to get their opinions.

Auburn wasn't the only Alabama town to make the list. Florence landed in the ninth spot.

In Georgia, Dahlonega came in at number four and Madison rounded out the top ten list.

Beaufort, South Carolina, took the top spot on the list.
