Burtonsville is a nice area to live in. There are two shopping centers on either side. Burtonsville shopping center and Briggs Chaney shopping center. It makes it easy to get food, groceries, gas whatever. It's not really a clothing area though unless you count Ross and Rainbow. The people are pretty nice and the neighborhoods are generally really pretty. The people in the area I live in care a lot about their front yards. The area has lots of sidewalks and bus stations which makes commuting through the town without a car simple enough. The high school has an amazing med program if your kid is interested in that. Overall, it's a pretty good community.
Burtonsville is a nice family-friendly suburb in Maryland with access to a decent public school system (Montgomery County). It is fairly expensive to live in Burtonsville and corporate job opportunities are not very high here. There is a low crime rate and the police system is fairly decent. As for food, there are a variety of choices to choose from, ranging from different ethnic groups and price ranges.
