I have been a resident of Burleson, Texas for about four years and it is safe to say I have felt more than welcomed. From going to the grocery to going to the movies, everyone is so kind and friendly. The kind of friendly that actually makes you want to interact with your community. Burleson is also such a closely knit community and it seems like just about everyone knows each other. It's a great place to get that hometown feeling and still be in a mid-sized city. I highly recommend visiting Burleson one day for the sake of the well rounded community and kind hearted people.
We love our city. Lots to do and excellent schools! We have never regretted our move out here to Grand Prairie. We will move to a larger home within the next few years and we will definitely be staying in Burleson!
