Welcome to the Town of Burlington, CT website. Our goal is to provide you with easy access to current town information.

We are best characterized as a charming, bucolic community located 18 miles west of Hartford. We are a gateway to the Farmington Valley, the Northwest CT Corner and the Bristol/Southington corridor. We have natural beauty, historic character and a strong commitment to helping our residents and businesses thrive.

For outdoor enthusiasts, half of Burlington is deemed open and recreational space which provides access to fishing in the Farmington River, numerous hiking trails and phenomenal mountain biking.

We take great pride in the quality of our Region 10 Public School system that we share with Harwinton and year round community activities. We have new restaurants and a variety of small businesses. Hartford Magazine has ranked Burlington as a top small town.
