Great place to grab a meal, visit the local shops and checkout the history. If you’ve never heard of Opelika but been to Auburn then chances are you have driven by or come very close to the quaint historic downtown of Opelika. This is a beautiful little town situated on the railway. Any of the restaurants or local breweries are a top place to start or finish your day.
Looking for a fun, easy way to spend a day as a couple or with family or friends? Then put Opelika on your to do list! 😃

Cute, old fashioned downtown
Nov 2018 • Family
My son and I spend some time here the weekend after Thanksgiving. We visited some interesting little stores, enjoyed the neat, restored old buildings, had some good food and drinks and enjoyed the holiday decorations. It really was a nice little area to spend some time walking around, shopping, eating and drinking.

Quaint downtown area, working on expanding
Jun 2018 • Couples
My husband and I went to historic opelika while visiting family in the area. The main square is beautiful with a fountain and seating. There are several small shops and a great ice cream stop. You can tell the area is going through some positive changes, and more businesses are coming in. We bought some items from a shop, the shop keeper was really nice and gave us a map of the area. The town is working hard to balance new businesses while maintaining the historic charm.

I had been to Auburn many times for football games, but had never visited the historic area of Opelika until last November when a friend suggested that I check it out. It is absolutely adorable! There are a number of great shops, from antiques to unique gifts, and several really, really good restaurants. After lunch and shopping, we drove around the residential area and saw many gorgeous restored homes. It's a beautiful step back in time with modern amenities. Love it!

Viewing a bit of the past!

Kudos to the people of Opelika for taking an interest in their historical past. They've done a wonderful job at restoring old buildings and putting in some interesting shops to browse. The commercial district offers a great taste for what was like in the old South. We were fortunate to be there last week and got to see the outdoor Christmas decorations of the historical homes. What a site to behold! If you haven't been here, do make it a point to visit and enjoy a taste of the South. You'll love it.

The restored downtown of Opelika is very appealing. We were there for the Auburn University pep rally prior to a football game. Nice shops and restaurants.

So many interesting restaurants and stores.

There are several really good restaurants on Railroad Ave. MaFia's Italian is very good. Their salads and mussels are great. My kids love the pizzas and pastas.

Irish Bred Pub has a great lunch special and their Shepards pie is wonderful. The fish and chips are as good as I had in Ireland.

N'offres has good AMERICAN food and burgers. Their lunch specials are usually awesome.
