Burlington Reviews

Burlington is a small town outside of Florence. It's very family friendly, but there is not a nightlife to speak of. Luckily Cincinnati is a short 15 min drive away. The highway is close by. The schools are wonderful. I wish there were more sidewalks/bike paths. Residents are overall friendly. There's a grocery store and YMCA and a number of parks, including a community garden and dog park.
Review Burlington
Overall experience has been great. Burlington, KY is a great location, live in a nice neighborhood with wonderful & kind people in vicinity. Our area is close to shopping, the mall, A schools & nearby city-Cincinnati. Plenty of job opportunities because of mall, retail & city within 15 miles. I chose to relocate to Burlington, KY from Florida for job, and would do it all over again. The place continues to grow & prosper. New schools were built coincidentally as my girls travelled through the elementary, middle & high school Boone County System. Thank you. Dawn Ruppel
There is very little crime, vandalism, or safety issues. I see regular police officers on back roads, on highways and patrolling local kids' hang out spots. Kids will be kids, but as far as real safety, there is little concern. Our cars stay unlocked and nothing in 14 years has ever been an issue. I believe our Burlington, KY is safer than neighboring areas which still are better than national averages in my guestimation. Again, I stand by statement of being a wonderful & safe area; truly a nice place to raise plant roots and to raise a family.
