Hi, my wife and I have a great business opportunity in Burlington, but no nothing about the area. We were in the midst of moving to the Lake Norman area when this business opportunity presented itself. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hi, I was wondering if anyone ever answered your question at all....... My husband and I just came back from a trip to NC and we passed through Burlington.

I was wondering if you work for Barnes & Noble, since there is one in Birkdale, near Lake Norman and they are building one in Burlington. They are actually building a BIG shopping plaza, all at once, which includes the B&N. It's preety large, when really the area is kinda small, depending I guess where you come from.
NC towns are more spread out and you see alot more 1-level, ranch style homes than you might in north Virginia or anywhere Northeast.
A pretty looking area we found was on the west end of Burlington, called Elon. There is a university there, Elon University. It's quaint. Most of it is.

When we first started to drive through Burlington, come from the East (Raleigh/Durham) it seemed more like a town that got built up around a truck stop. If that's true, it has grown! Once we got more West, it got better and better.

That's however, all I really know about the area, which isn't much and isn't based on much. I sure hope someone from there can give you a better answer than I did!! Good luck!

Mostly all I know of Burlington is there are a lot of outlets there. Alamance County (where Burlington is located) is beautiful but pretty rural, if you don't mind that. I have heard the hospital is very good, if you ever have a need.

I have always been passing through Burlington on the way to somewhere else, so I don't know much more.
