The charming city of Burlingame is located in San Mateo County between San Francisco and the Silicon Valley. Renowned as the region’s City of Trees, the municipality blends country ambiance with urban bustle.
Burlingame is a designated part of the metropolitan area of the San Francisco Peninsula, with a higher-than-average median home cost, quality of life and educational ratings. Its consistently highly rated elementary and middle schools are supported by high parental involvement. The locale’s high school is also known for highly ranked academics, sports and a state-of-the-art aquatic center.
The neighborhood’s downtown district has become one of the Peninsula’s most coveted shopping destinations for Bay Area residents and visitors, with its selection of upscale restaurants, gourmet wine stores, boutiques and jewelers on Burlingame Avenue and Broadway. Meanwhile, Sunday mornings are alive with its Farmer's Market (in fall and summer), and such annual events as Artzfest, Shakespeare in the Park and the Scottish Holiday concert.
Unemployment and crime are lower than average in the region and job growth is increasing. Burlingame is peaceful, energetic and a wonderful place to live in all phases of life: whether just starting a family, raising teen-agers or downsizing for retirement.
With proximity to San Francisco International Airport and the presence of some of the finest hotels and restaurants on Airport Boulevard, Burlingame continuously provides both business visitors and tourists a quintessential San Francisco experience.
