Burlington is a cute small town that is located close to both the Canadian border and Seattle. Most importantly, Burlington is so close to the Cascade Mountains! If you are the outdoorsy type, it is definitely the place for you. Small town vibe not your thing? Probably not the place for you.

Burlington is my home town and although I love it dearly because i grew up here I know its not perfect. There are some fun places to go in town such as the Coffee House which is very nice and we have great ice cream places and a wonderful Italian restaurant. In summer there is always an annual Chocolate fest in town and it kicks off a summer of fun and its the perfect place to take family or hang out with friends. Although Burlington doesn't have anything extremely exciting it isn't too far from Milwaukee, Chicago, Kenosha, and Racine.
Small town feel, very welcoming community, lots of diversity from farming, to water sports, to hiking in the mountains. Diverse options of activities in school and outside of school. There are always good ways to meet people.
