Downtown Auburn Hills is as beautiful as it is unique. Located along the scenic Clinton River in Southeast Michigan, our downtown area features brick-paved sidewalks, a riverside park, and is blanketed by a free Wi-Fi network that can be accessed indoors and outdoors.
The charming Downtown is now home to many community events, including Summerfest, Paddlepalooza, Halloween Spooktacular, Summer Concert Music Series, and much more! It also features a variety of businesses and restaurants owned by community-minded business owners.
In 2002, the small downtown area at Auburn and Squirrel was revitalized and the city and Tax Increment Finance Authority (TIFA) have invested over $18 million with streetscape and infrastructure improvements. Since then, business downtown has grown and shows no signs of stopping.
There is a beautiful area consisting of a four-story apartment complex, parking structure, classroom space called the University Center and a community center called The DEN (Downtown Education Nook). The DEN is a place where students can come to study, research and socialize in a renovated historic cabin with modern amenities like free wi-fi and study desks/tables. The DEN also doubles as a coworking space for freelancers and entrepreneurs during the day!
