Burlington is a very diverse and family friendly neighborhood. It’s a good place to buy an affordable house that is decently sized. It’s pretty safe, but that aren’t that many things to do in the immediate area. You have to drive 5-10 minutes to get from the developments to the department stores, library, etc. The local government could invest more in parks and recreation so kids aren’t loitering around the 7/11 in the summer with nothing to do. There are basketball courts, tennis courts, and a running path, but I think there should be more to do.

I love how small burlington is, everyone is pretty close here. I grew up here and made many life long friends. This is my home. If I could change somethings, it would be the crime. I wish it could be a safer place for kids and families to grow up in and not have to worry about bad things happening in their neighborhood. Overall, I love Burlington and was thankful I got to grow up here.
I wouldn't trade my experience in Burlington for the world, as it has been my home for all of my 16 years of life. Burlington offers a wonderful environment to have interactions with many people that differ in race, ethnicity, gender, attitude, sexuality, etc. Being exposed to these different kinds of people gives me a whole new understanding of different people. However, sometimes Burlington can get a little scary, especially when there is shootings, robbers, vandalism, etc. These occasions are far and few between and can easily be avoided by being with the right people, but it is scary when these things do happen.
