College Football Traditions: Enjoy lemonade and tradition at Auburn's Toomer's Corner

Located in the heart of downtown Auburn, Toomer's Drugs is a staple of "The Loveliest Village on the Plains" and on the bucket list for any college football fans.

Founded in 1896 at the corner of Magnolia Ave. and College St., directly across from the famed "Toomer's Oaks," by former football player Sheldon "Shel" Toomer, the small drug store specializes in fresh-squeezed lemonade. The blend of sour and sweet is perfect for fans looking for a refreshment to cool off in the hot sun.

In addition to the famous lemonade, Toomer's provides fresh sandwiches for fans and an Auburn-themed gift shop that's perfect for fans of any age.

After the Auburn Tigers produce a win, fans flock to the corner to "roll" the large oak trees located on the edge of campus. When they're done, Toomer's Drugs is the place to be for family, tradition, refreshment and fun.
