Burlington and its neighboring city Mount Vernon Washington are beautiful and welcoming and are truly delightful areas to buy a home. Considered medium-sized coastal cities, Burlington and Mount Vernon have a relatively small population of less than 40,000 people throughout several neighborhoods. The area is not limited to just white-collar or blue-collar occupations but rather is a combination of both.
There are many job opportunities throughout the region including office work, sales and retail as well as service provider openings and a wide range of professional positions. Mount Vernon Washington is somewhat of a nautical city in that it has easy access to several tidal bodies of water, bays and inlets making it the perfect place for those who enjoy waterfront activities and water sports. Mount Vernon and Burlington both enjoy a wide range of shopping, dining and nightlife.
The area is in close proximity to Seattle, Everett Washington and Bellingham, which are all within just a short drive of less than an hour in most cases. To the east of Burlington and Mount Vernon are the beautiful Cascade Mountains offering stunning visual imagery that is beyond compare. The area is known for having great schools and friendly people just about everywhere you turn.
San Juan Islands
In addition, Anacortes, Whidbey Island, Camano Island and Oak Harbor as well as the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station are just a short drive to the West. What makes the area so unique is that it affords easy access to the Washington State ferry system located both on Anacortes and Whidbey Island. This allows travelers to visit many of the outlying San Juan Islands as well as Canada and the Olympic Peninsula.
