I was born and raised in Burlington, NC. I have traveled to Oregon, to the Bahamas, Jamaica and still LOVE to call Burlington home! We have such an amazing group of people, everyone's friendly. The area has grown in the past few years tremendously, but still a very desirable place to settle!
friendly country people, always willing to help others out! There is always something to do, and some type of even going on. I enjoy the fourth Fridays in the summer, with local bands and great brews! High School football rivalries here are the best! Even years after graduating, my family still goes to football games almost every Friday night!
Burlington is a city that lacks diversity in many ways. For example, the western part of the city is being revitalized to bring more affluent people to the area. while the eastern part of the city is being shameful neglected. The potential for home ownership is lower for residence of a certain socioeconomic background. The schools are heavily underfunded and jobs are scares. So overall all, I would give Burlington a C-.
