Most Expensive Burlington Neighborhoods

Of important note, Burlington is also a city of artists. Burlington has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Burlington’s character.
Also of interest is that Burlington has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Burlington is also a major college town with a large number of people who are 18 years or older and attending college. As is often the case in college towns, the many students that live in Burlington have a strong influence on the local culture and entertainment scene, which may seem dormant by comparison in the summer months when much of the student population is away. In the fall, the return of students has a reinvigorating effect on the community. Because colleges are lasting institutions, they have a stabilizing effect on the economy by providing direct local benefits such as jobs for faculty and staff and spending by students. Burlington’s economy is one such example of this.
Burlington, while not large, also appears to be attractive to some younger, educated professionals, who help shape the character of the city.
