One hears nothing bad about Burlington. About Lynn keep in mind that it has been featured on COPS a few times-and this is not a good thing.

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. They might get bored living in Burlington because it's so far from the city with no real fun places to hang out. But if your kids are young then Burlington is fine. Very nice and... More
