Chocolate fest is awesome and there are other events throughout the year for residents. There are good food choices, and pretty good shopping. For a smaller town the stores available is really good. It's close to Lake Geneva and Milwaukee.
Review Burlington
There are quite a few average/below average bars & restaurants. My impression of the bars are they are sleezy. However there is like one very good bar and one very good restaurant in the whole town imo. There are no chain restaurants like Panda Express, Noodles & Co., Chipotle, Panera Bread, etc. There also is no Starbucks! The closest Starbucks is in Lake Geneva. I'm not sure what people even do for 'nightlife' besides house parties with underage drinking...
It's a safe place to grow up but there's not much to do for fun when you're in high school. You kind of have to be inventive to stay entertained outside of the home. All in all, it's pretty cheap to live here, there's plenty of places to eat, and there's a decent amount of diversity, though we could be exposed to more.
