Burlington, Wisconsin: Bustling Year-Round
Small Town Charm,
Big City Amenities
Just a short distance from major metropolitan areas like Milwaukee and Chicago, Burlington is a bustling town that prides itself on community involvement and supporting local.
Major corporations like Nestlé are headquartered here, but Burlington still retains a small-town identity that prioritizes small businesses, local culture, and giving back to the community. Small retailers are attracted to Burlington’s positive spirit, and entrepreneurs have flocked to the downtown corridor over the past few years.
This energetic influx of new shops and services has given people more reasons to stay in town while also enticing out-of-towners from neighboring cities to stop by. With an event almost every week, whether organized by the Chamber of Commerce or the businesses themselves, there’s always a good reason to visit.
Chamber of Commerce
The Burlington Area Chamber of Commerce prides itself on showing off the best the area has to offer and frequently hosts events for visitors and locals alike. Their exhaustive Visitor Guide features everything from bike trails and walking tours to information on the best places to eat and drink. The yearly Maxwell Street Days celebration brings thousands of people from the surrounding area to participate in what Chamber President Stephen Quist refers to as a “Mercantile and Music Festival”. Local businesses set up outside to sell their wares while live music plays day and night to an enthusiastic crowd.
