Boston’s Best Neighbor: Big City Industries In A Tight-Knit Community

November 30, 2021

It’s no secret that the Boston area is home to some of the brightest, most forward-thinking minds on the planet. From the world finest educational institutions to the various industrial hubs spread out across the area, Boston, Massachusetts and the surrounding area is truly a hive mind for innovation and advancement.

In Burlington, Massachusetts, we pride ourselves on being “Boston’s Best Neighbor.” We have adopted this phrase as a moniker that represents our town’s philosophies when it comes to living and working within our community. In today’s blog, let’s explore why it means so much to our residents and town representatives to call ourselves, “Boston’s Best Neighbor.”

A Short Distance From The Rest of the World

One of the most prominent benefits of living and working in Burlington is our town’s proximity to the big city itself. This includes the surrounding industry and educational hubs, such as Cambridge, Somerville, and many more. Typically, travelers only require around 30 minutes to reach the heart of Boston to Burlington, or vice-versa. And, with Burlington’s access to Routes I-95 and 128, vehicle/carpool travel is simple and as stress-free as possible.

In addition, Burlington is also only a short distance from Logan International Airport and only slightly further away from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, making national and international travel a breeze for those leaving and returning to the area. Here, both residents and visitors for business and pleasure alike can find a comfortable place to rest their heads and easily access the rest of what Massachusetts (and New England) has to offer.

A Hub Of Our Own

Burlington’s centralized location in eastern Massachusetts has made it an innovative playground for many advanced industries in the fields of life science, additive manufacturing, healthcare, technology, and many more. These industries can reap the advantages of being part of “big city” industrial and technological hubs while working in a suburban, accessible, and friendly environment. 

And in Burlington, these industries can recruit from the best universities in the world placed right at our doorstep. Educational institutions, such as Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts University, and Bentley College, are just a few of the many prestigious higher-learning institutions right down the road from us. 

In addition, Burlington employers also have unparalleled access to a workforce of 2.6 million workers in the Boston-Cambridge-Nashua, MA-NH metropolitan area. So, those employers seeking to recruit experienced talent will not have to look far.

Boston-Living Minus The Hustle And Bustle

Let’s face it, big-city life isn’t for everyone. Those who wish to work in cutting-edge industries may not want to throw themselves into city life, or maybe they seek a quieter lifestyle after living in more crowded living areas for an extended period.

This is why we are so proud of our town in Burlington, MA. Here, our welcoming community offers both residents and workers alike the opportunity to access what makes Boston so great and unique, without having to battle hours of traffic or the “hustle and bustle” of that big city atmosphere. 

And, when feeling like visiting the city, day or night, it will always be there waiting for you — right around the corner. This is what makes Burlington Boston’s Best Neighbor.
