    Burlington Reviews

    Burlington is a small town in CT offering students a good school system and competitive sports affiliation. It is rural and many areas of the town cannot be built on because they are wetlands, making for a beautiful areas of naturally preserved land. Fall in New England is remarkable and Burlington is no exception!
    Review Burlington
    Burlington, CT is a great town as it is not too populated and not too big. It is a great place to live because you are minutes from some of the other, bigger towns where you would go shopping for all your needs. This makes it not so busy and not so loud in Burlington, very peaceful. There is an excellent school system and it's a great place to grow up with many opportunities whether it's while your growing up or when you're leaving. I am beyond happy that I was raised and grew up here and would love to live in a town just like this when I buy a house.
    Burlington is a really great place to grow up in since a majority of the families in this town have younger kids. As you get older, it is harder to find things to do or places to work because it is such a small town. Along with this, there is little to no diversity in the town. Overall, Burlington is a really nice town with a strong sense of community.
