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.
Review Burlington
I would like for there to be a way to track the status of pending applications, and some sort of way to determine which scholarships have and haven't been applied for in the listings. You can apply to a scholarship over and over by going through the listings and there is nothing telling you whether it has been applied for or not. There is no way to determine which scholarships you have applied for and which you have not, you don't even receive an error message stating that you have already applied when trying to reapply. ~I apologize if this is not very thorough, I had written a longer review but had to edit it because it is limited to 1000 characters.
Diverse town, many activities for children and adults, beautiful town common and parks. The people are friendly, much industry which reduces property tax, many high tech companies which helps offer jobs to youths. The police department is activity in the community and schools
