I liked Burnet because of the small town atmosphere. There's not a lot to worry about in terms of theft, and it's a nice place to get away from the city hustle and bustle. There are family-fun events throughout the year if you refer to the newspaper or word of mouth. The downside is that if you don't like the quiet life, there's really not a lot to do most of the time. Also, if you don't like snakes or other wildlife (sometimes in your house), this is not the place for you!

Burnet is a great small town for anyone not wanting to live in the big city, but not live out in a rural area. Burnet is close to some of the most beautiful lakes in Texas including lake LBJ. It is located 20 min from Marble Falls which is a growing city with a movie theater, an abundance of restaurants, Wal-mart, Home Depot, Lowe's and more. Marble Falls recently built a HEB plus, not to say the HEB in Burnet doesnt do the job. One thing I would change about Burnet is more options of things to eat. Especially businesses open 24 hours.
Burnet is a wonderful little town. It's difficult though to find affordable housing. The people are very friendly. There is very little traffic. There are hills, beautiful scenery, nearby Inks Lake, and other parks. Shopping is limited- but Georgetown is 45 min drive for more stores and variety of eateries.
