Burlington has always been a very family friendly place to live. It's usually quiet with a lot of great annual community events.
Review Burlington
There are many local mom and pop shops around my neighborhood. Especially down on High Street, that is a very historical are. They have the Wood Street Fair every September and that whole strret gets blocked off and everyone is either selling or buying or both. Its a fun time to interact with new and old neigbours and its a great day to spend quality family time together.
I'm not getting shot anytime soon. However, I might get robbed.
