Welcome to Burlingame

Picturesque charm meets verdant beauty in this classic Peninsula city


Enter the city of Burlingame on the San Francisco Peninsula, and you’ll be immediately taken by its welcoming arch and warm, upbeat personality. Widely known as the City of Trees for its fragrant eucalyptuses, the “Gateway to San Francisco” has a fantastic reputation as one of the loveliest suburbs in San Mateo County.

But don’t let the word “suburb” fool you: Burlingame is very much its own city, one with a boatload of character and not one but two downtown districts to prove it. Areas brimming with hip boutiques, trendy restaurants, and lively bars are just as ubiquitous as serene residential streets and lush, pristine parks. Year-round community events foster a sense of togetherness among Burlingame’s residents, and outdoor recreation opportunities abound, all of which are enjoyed in a sunny, wonderful climate.

What to Love

 
  • Filled with award-winning schools 
  • Proximity to San Francisco and Silicon Valley
  • Topnotch public transportation
  • Terrific views of the Pacific Ocean

Local Lifestyle


Burlingame’s ideal location in San Mateo County makes it the perfect fit for professionals who commute to San Francisco or San Jose (or work remotely). Its abundance of beautifully-manicured parks appeals to active people and parents with young children. And yet, its thriving arts and culture scene also makes it hyper-attractive to retirees who love both and enjoy being intimately involved with their community. You’ll often find your neighbors out and about on “The Ave” or Broadway — the two centers of this vibrant enclave.

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment


The San Francisco Peninsula is a leading destination not only for its array of natural splendors but also because of its high concentration of incredible dining, shopping, and entertainment venues. Burlingame adds to the Peninsula’s fame. People around the Bay book a table at the always-impeccable
Stella Burlingame, a stand-out eatery legendary for its gastronomic artistry. Truffle-stuffed gnocchi with brown butter and sage and garlic-herb pan-seared prawns over arugula are just two winners on their delightful menu.

Broadway Prime is equally delicious. The classic, buzzy steakhouse features dry-aged filets, porterhouses, succulent seafood, and delectable vegetarian dishes. And when you’re in the mood for perfectly-prepared South Indian fare, the perennially chic Saffron - Burlingame consistently delivers a fabulous experience.

Shopping in Burlingame is an immense pleasure, whether you choose to pick up the independent boutiques on “The Ave” or Broadway. Excellent fashions, gorgeous accessories, splendid home decor — both of these shopping meccas will fulfill your needs and wishes (and more). On The Ave, you can also catch the city’s daily farmers’ market.

Things to Do


Burlingame’s parks are for the record books, with many of them showcasing the 18,000 trees found around the city. At
Mills Canyon Park, you’ll discover over 28 untouched acres flourishing with flora and fauna. You’ll also find the awesome Ed Taylor Loop Trailhead here, which rewards your trekking efforts with outstanding views.

Washington Park — what most deem the crown jewel of Burlingame — hosts several super fun events throughout the year, including Concerts in the Park on Sundays in July, Movies in the Park on Friday nights during summer, and the annual “Burlingame on the Avenue,” a large, exhilarating fete featuring gourmet eats, live music, and works by over 150 artists. 

Golfers will also be pleased with the championship course at Crystal Springs Golf Course. The course itself is above-par, but it’s the phenomenal views that will leave you breathless.
