Nice article but Burlington is a town, not a city.

Good call, John, thanks for the note! All fixed now. So, what do you love about the town?

Just found your "paper" when I did a Google News search about the police activity at the Mall around 1:15 re: the "BB Gun." When I make my list of favorite things, I'll be sure to add the Patch to it. I've signed up for the RSS feed, refreshed every 30 minutes.

Oh great, welcome to Patch! And on the mall incident, I spoke to the Burlington Police little while ago and they will be releasing an updated statement shortly that I will carry on the site as soon as I get it

I no longer live in Burlington, but I grew up and still have family there. I never gave this much thought while living there, but Burlington is a very nice town whose residents and natives take particular pride of being from there. Whenever I meet someone else who was raised in Burlington, whether still living there or not, they make a point about saying that they grew up there as a point of pride. The town has a great varied housing stock, very good schools (much improved over the recent years too!), great parks in each neighborhood. Its municipal services are better than most towns (great library, clean and abundant water supply, its own public health clinic, etc) It has taken a real effort to preserve its open spaces (the great outdoors of the Mill Pond and Sawmill Brook Conservation Areas are minutes away from anywhere in town) and historic sites (the Burlington Historical Museum is truly a wonderful little gem and the Grandview Farm project is testament to the town's commitment to its past). There are great restaurants and shops all of all types all over town (from Cafe Escadrille, Ritu Ki Rasoi and Pizza Villafranca to Lacascia's Bakery, Delicious Desserts and True North). I currently live in a brownstone in Boston's Back Bay and truly love City life, but if I ever decided to move out the suburbs, Burlington would top my list. It has everything one needs.

With easy access to major highways, world-class health care, top shopping and dining destinations, a great school system, and a low tax rate, Burlington has it all!
