The City of Burlington, WI (City + Town pop. 21,146). It is an easy community in which to be in touch with nature - enveloped as it is with open spaces, dotted by lakes and criss-crossed by rivers and trails. People wave to each other and stop to talk here in the heart of the leafy, green, hand-built Midwestern United States of America.
The City of Burlington has easy access to major metropolitan areas of Milwaukee and Chicago as well as Madison and Rockford. But, it offers residents the comforting, friendly advantages of easy small-town Wisconsin living. And the community has a remarkably diverse economy featuring
manufacturing, healthcare and other industries.
Healthcare is an especially bright star in the City of Burlington’s lively economy. As you likely know, healthcare is an industry that is expected to grow in the United States for many years to come. In fact, the healthcare sector is expected to add 6 million jobs in the U.S. between 2019 and 2029. We are well-positioned to take advantage of this trend.
The City and Town of Burlington have excellent K-12 education as well as post-secondary options locally and regionally. Burlington is friendly, walkable, and accessible with a pleasing
array of local shopping and dining options as well as excellent representation of large national chains.
The City of Burlington has a symbiotic relationship with surrounding source markets such as Kenosha, Milwaukee and Racine where some of its residents work - and from which those communities' residents commute to Burlington for employment. And, the community has benefited from a recent surge in investment in small businesses by local residents who believe in our future.
If you’re looking for a safe, peaceful community in which to settle and perhaps raise a family - or enjoy the one you already have - come for a visit, where people consider themselves
lucky to be part of a truly unique unicorn of a community. You may never want to leave.
