Burbank has a close-knit community with lovely people. All of my neighbors are very friendly. The only thing I would change is the amount of business opportunities. I would want more stores in Burbank.
It is a very small town but it's great because that means it has a tightly knit community. Parents are heavily involved in school caring not only for their kid's success but other kids too. I only began school here a few years ago but instantly met everybody. Our neighbors brought us food and introduced themselves! Imagine my surprise, I thought these things only happened in movies but now I am starting to believe movies get their inspiration from small towns like Burbank. If I had to rate Burbank id give it 10/10 and plan to live here after college. The only thing we need now is public transportation and some bike lanes.
Burbank, WA is a small town located at the convergence of the Snake and Columbia river systems. It's sunny over 300 days of the year with plenty of recreational activities and ample shopping.
There is not much crime in Burbank. I have heard of a couple shootings and break-ins in the past couple years, but any disturbance or crime is kept fairly quiet. The police force in Burbank is very prevalent. There are multiple police officers that live in my neighborhood, which makes me feel safer. When driving around, I usually see one or two police either parked or driving around town. I feel very safe living in Burbank.
I have loved growing up in Burbank. Burbank, Washington is far enough into the country to be a nice, comfortable, small town, while still being a half hour away from the next town. Growing up in Burbank has made me appreciate the quiet, love the stillness, and enjoy living in a small town. The atmosphere of my home town is very quiet and close-knit. Although there are many exciting and boisterous places that I could have grown up in, I wouldn't trade growing up in Burbank for anywhere else in the world.
Part of it needs better housing instead of trailers. I like the openness but the school isn't where I would want my kids. I would live here just take my kids somewhere else for school or homeschool them.
