GET IN to downtown living. There are so many places to call home in Burlington, we want you to search the neighborhood for the next place you'll hang your hat! Downtown is surrounded by five historic neighborhoods that feature various size properties and price points— from 1920s craftsman cottages to large mansions once occupied by the families who built Burlington's textile industry.

The community has done a lot of work to make the downtown area something special, with historic buildings, great locally-owned shopping and dining, and a 15-square-block area with free public Wi-Fi access. The collaborative spirit runs deep in Burlington, and residents have no shortage of opportunities to take an active role in their community.
