Nicknamed “Chocolate City USA,” Burlington could easily be considered Southeast Wisconsin's most indulgent town. But thanks to its unique, small-town charm, the community is as down-to-earth as they come.

An inviting and lively city with rural character, Burlington charms its residents and visitors with historic homes, local shops, numerous restaurants, and plenty of recreational opportunities.

Burlington is home to the Nestle USA chocolate factory, as well as a chocolate museum, where visitors can learn the history of chocolate in the heart of Burlington’s downtown. Every Memorial Day weekend, the city’s ChocolateFest attracts tens of thousands for a weekend filled with sweet treats, live entertainment, carnival rides, and contests.

Can’t-miss destinations include the Spinning Top Exploratory Museum, with its toy spinning tops, yo-yos, and gyroscops; the AeppelTreow Winery, which produces small batch cider; and the Malt House Theatre, where residents go to catch a show from the locally-renowned theatre group Haylofters Inc.

Echo Lake and the Fox River are also located in Burlington and are destinations for outdoor recreation such as fishing, boating, and swimming. The Riverwalk is especially popular for residents looking to explore Burlington’s charming downtown and visit the farmers market at Wehmhoff Square Park.

Burlington real estate is comprised of farmland, wooded country estates, homes with rustic charm, and lakeside property.

Surrounded by several metropolitan areas, Burlington is approximately a half-hour drive from Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha, and a 90-minute drive from Chicago and Madison.
