Burlington is the “Hub City”. It is the connecting point for two major railways and also serves as the junction between I-5 and Highway 20. Seasonal banners often welcome tourists into Ye Olde Fairhaven District, which has a down-home atmosphere and feel. The storefronts feature specialty shops, hometown cafes, locally-owned restaurants, and other hospitable services.
Burlington, over the years, has become the fourth largest city in the county and has the most major retail businesses within its limits.
