Burlington is a typical suburb, it's nice and safe and has decent schools. It's where one of the bigger malls in the state is, as well as a few other shopping centers (Kohls, Borders Bookstore, etc in a few locations), some fast food and good eateries and decent school systems. It's pretty basic, and if you can really... More

If you have older teenaged children they'd be happiest somewhere like Malden or Somerville because there is access to public transportation.
