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 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.
My favorite part about my hometown is the community I grew up with. Those I surrounded myself with and those I met randomly on the street added to the pride I have for growing up in my hometown of Burlington. In addition, Burlington is centered between Philadelphia, New York, Washington D.C., and the Beach. Anything one could think of to do, living in Burlington let us do it with just a short car ride.
