A very safe overall county compared to others, with a nice vibe. I’ve lived here all my life and hardly ever felt unsafe. Everyone seems friendly and work ethic is very strong amongst residents here. The farms are beautiful to see, I hope they stay around for generations to come!

Burlington Country is an amazing place to live. Not only is there great food and fun around here, but it is in perfect location. Around the area there are farms, beaches, cities and everything a person can imagine! It is the perfect place to live for someone of any age.
Burlington County is a lovely place to live in. We have a great school system here and amazing people. City Hall is held in Burlington County right by our middle school, which is called Wilbur Watts Intermediate School. In our county, we have the three-time National Champion Blue Devils Marching Band that I was a part of for five years.
