Great little suburb of Cincinnati. In-expesnive and friendly people! Happily recommend it to anyone looking to move to the Midwest . Good sports teams, beautiful downtown with a river. Easy access to many things and almost no traffic. Great local food.

I love Burlington! It is the best mix between city and country. You are close to everything, which is so convenient. This is my favorite place in NKY by far.
Burlington is a great place to live and raise a family. If you want to feel like your in the city, moving towards the Florence area will do the trick, if your looking for large plots of land then you belong more towards the river. It is a very safe suburb protected by the Boone County Sheriffs Office and the Burlington Fire Department. This is a community that gives back and is very family friendly. Truly a great place to live.
