Burlington is located adjacent to the state capital of Raleigh. It is also near North Carolina's Research Triangle Park (RTP). The regional nickname for Burlington and the surrounding area is "Boomtown", reflecting its rapid growth in recent decades, especially during the 1980s and 1990s. In 2008 CNNMoney.com named Burlington City one of America's best places to retire, citing a low cost of living, plentiful jobs and scenic beauty as factors contributing to its appeal. History [ edit ] The Alamance County portion was originally part of Orange County until 1793; Chatham County formed from Orange in 1801; Alamance formed from Chatham in 1808.
