"Alamance County and the surrounding areas offer excellent golf courses with reasonable green fees. The Village is within fifteen miles of ten golf courses. And, we have peace of mind that our children won't have to worry should we no longer be as independent as we are now."
Sam Gagliano, Resident
The City of Burlington retains traditional southern charm, along with the bustle of a growing area with two major retail centers, the internationally-renowned Replacements Unlimited and Elon University. A well-established recreation and parks system provides the perfect opportunities to entertain grandchildren with boating, biking and hiking, along with a downtown City Park that is home to amusement rides, including the historical Dentzel carousel. The Haw River Wine Trail is a favorite day trip with four local wineries located along the length of the river as it winds through the county. The jewel in historic downtown Burlington is the Paramount, a restored 1920's theater palace that is now a venue for performing arts. The city also prides itself on its many locally-owned and operated restaurants that offer their personal cuisines and specialties, in addition to the nationwide chains that are familiar to all.
Burlington's Central NC location is within a morning's drive (two to three hours) of either the majestic North Carolina mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway or the restful and wide, sandy beaches. Living halfway between the Triad and the Triangle, The Village residents are within minutes of theater, symphony, sports events and world-renowned medical centers without the stress of enduring the congestion and traffic of the more highly populated areas. Interstate highways 85 and 40 skirt the perimeter of the city, providing convenient ground transportation to a variety of locations. The Piedmont Triad Airport and Raleigh-Durham airport are about a 45-minute drive from campus, and the Amtrak station is within two miles of The Village.
