Burley is a great community to raise a family. Overall it is a safe location, there are great neighborhoods and community events, and we are surrounded by many beautiful places to visit. If you enjoy the outdoors, you will find plenty to do! The one thing I would like to see more of is kid friendly establishments. Indoor play gyms, indoor swimming pools, or even a kids museum. In the winter there is not very many options or things to do with small children!

Born and raised, will live and die here. Love the valley and mountains. This is a beautiful place to live! It is growing slowly but steadily. Hope that it continues to be a great place with the growth, hopefully more things for youth to do will come to town.
I lived in Burley for 8 years and i can say even though it is thought to be a quiet town out in the desert, a lot goes on and many memories can be made in this little town. the friendships, relationships and acquaintances are very wholesome making this town a very family oriented area. This town relies a lot on hard work due to its extensive farming companies. Growing up I was able to find what hard work meant out in the country fields working for dairies and farms. Something that could improve in this town is the education. Not many farmworkers are generally educated and are uninformed about the better opportunities for their children. They unable to lead their children to a path for success. Too many kids enter high school only to graduate and fail at life or never graduate because the opportunities were never presented to them.
