Burlingame is one of the Peninsula’s most picturesque cities. Dubbed the “City of Trees,” the area is complete with a spectacular amount of greenery, much of which is protected by city ordinance. And, between the beautiful homes – some built at the top of the 1900s – and the natural surroundings, Burlingame’s atmosphere is undoubtedly awe-inspiring.
Burlingame is located south of San Francisco and is just over six square miles in size. It is one of the better locations in the Bay Area for transportation as it is equipped with it’s own Caltrain station, and has several intersecting highways, including Highway 101. Residents enjoy a walkable downtown, with plenty of dining and shopping, and many commuting options north to the city or south to Silicon Valley for even more work or play.
But why leave when you can stay? Burlingame is a great destination for quieter and less crowded activities away from San Francisco. With it’s own farmer’s market, museums, galleries, large chain stores and quaint mom-and-pop shops, there’s more than enough to do. Burlingame families benefit greatly from the small town feel of this city, and largely enjoy the sense of community inherent in their neighbors.
And when the kids aren’t playing, they’re attending some of the best schools in the state. The city of Burlingame is home to great Bay Area schools, many ranking high with the California Department of Education. There are a vast number of preschools and five elementary schools, but only one middle and high school within city limits. High school-aged students have the option to attend schools in neighboring cities as part of the San Mateo Union High School District, or one of the many private schools in Burlingame.
