Burlington is located at the crossroads of Interstate 5 and Highway 20 and has become known as the retail hub of Northwest Washington. It was founded in 1882 when John P. Millett and William McKay entered a dense forest of cedar, spruce, fir, and smaller timber to establish a logging camp. The city has now grown to a population of over 4,000.
Agriculture is the major industry and consists of dairy farms, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, potatoes, green peas, broccoli, cauliflower, wheat, corn, and carrots as mainstays. Every year, in the middle of June, it recognizes its agricultural history with a community celebration called Berry Dairy Days.
The city also boasts a regional shopping mall called Cascade Mall and a large factory Outlet Center along with a number of national retailers on Burlington Boulevard located adjacent to Interstate 5.
The Skagit River which borders the city offers fishing and other recreational opportunites all year long.
The 27-hole Avalon Golf Course is just a few miles north of town.
