    Burlington is a really great place to grow up in since a majority of the families in this town have younger kids. As you get older, it is harder to find things to do or places to work because it is such a small town. Along with this, there is little to no diversity in the town. Overall, Burlington is a really nice town with a strong sense of community.

    It's a small, spread out town, covered in woods and farm. But it's beautiful, historic, and has been a good home to me for my entire life. There are good people and bad people and the school system has flaws, but I couldn't say it's a bad place to live.

    It's a small town, with very little social life unless you travel to nearby towns or cities.
