Burke Reviews

Honestly, this place is awful for young people to live in. There is nothing to do, but it is a wonderful place to raise children and retire too. If your just visiting there are a few sights to see. It's best to come in the fall or summer, but you can come skiing in the winter if that's more your thing. Overall, wouldn't recommend living here for anyone ages 18-30, but the rest of it's okay.

It is a great place to raise kids.
