Burlington is a very nice, safe community that is perfect to raise your kids in. The schools are great here and the town is very safe. I am proud to be from Burlington!
I like Burlington because there is so much to do here! There are so many restaurants on 3rd Avenue and in the mall to try. There is a movie theatre, Kings Bowling, and beautiful parks if you are looking for things to do! The Recreation Department programs are varied (there's something for everyone) are of good value. Burlington is about a 20 minute drive into Boston, so for commuters it is not bad. The public transportation into Boston, however, is scarce; no commuter rail through Burlington. Also biking is dangerous because there are no bike lanes.
Burlington is an amazing town with many amenities such as the Burlington Mall, coffee places, and many restaurants!
