I have grown up in Burleson. It is a growing city that still has that small town charm. Located south of Fort Worth, it has a rural feel that is welcoming to all! The public schools are well maintained and cared for by its citizens.
The diversity of people is a healthy balance of socioeconomic backgrounds. Residents take care of the community and are involved with one another to better the town.
Friday nights, during football season, is when Burleson is at its liveliest. The stadium is lit up with fans who come from all corners of our rural town to come together and enjoy the game!
This small suburb of Fort Worth is affordable to live in and offers a relatively stable real estate market. Burleson is very active and full of people ready to help each other. This is a close knit community where most of us know each other.
Burleson may be a growing city, but it is still small enough for us to be close to our neighbors and not go far for shopping and eating.

I lived in Burleson my whole life and I think it's great! The houses and schools are nice and lovely. Burleson High is also a great place. The baseball team is great and most people who live in Burleson think it's great. It's even quickly growing into a city! That's why I love the city of Burleson, Texas!
I love Burleson, Texas! I’ve lived here for only four years but throughout those four there has been so much growth in the city. More and more buildings such as food stops, apartments, neighborhoods, and shopping areas, have been built just recently. I really like Old Towne Burleson because of its home like feel and how nice everybody is to one another. In all, I really believe Burleson, Texas is just a wonderful place to live or visit!
