A town that’s an easy commute to San Francisco and Silicon Valley, Burlingame is far from a bedroom community; instead, it has its own sunny heart and historic vibes that are impossible not to love.
Convenient, Family-Friendly, Cute Downtown, Shopping, Historical
Burlingame has a historical charm that’s particularly unique and undeniable — whether you’re cozying up with a good movie inside your historic home or meandering Burlingame Ave. with no real agenda — you’ll feel the casual timelessness this town has to offer.
On and around adorable Burlingame Ave., you can expect to stroll as long as you need until you find the perfect happy hour after work, lazy Sunday brunch or leafy tree to settle under for a family day out.
Locals often spend all weekend at 19-acre Washington Park with tennis rackets in hand or lounging with family and friends over a lively picnic — or they stick around for the summer and fall jazz concerts here.
This town is known as the City of Trees, and there are an abundance of tree-lined streets as well as shaded parks, open spaces, and towering eucalyptus to prove it.
As you would guess in a town dedicated to trees, you’ll find an abundance of sun-dappled streets here with multi-bedroom homes — some within walking distance to downtown while others are tucked away with a little more privacy along winding neighborhood streets.
The attitude and weather here are ideal for lazy weekends spent casually shopping along Broadway or savoring the selection at the weekly farmer’s market.
