In the early 1900s, affluent San Franciscans in search of a more desirable climate found Burlingame more than fit the bill. As with many nearby San Francisco suburbs, Burlingame was a considered safe haven for those flocking the City after the 1906 earthquake. Today, Burlingame is home to around 30,000 residents who appreciate its mild weather and close proximity the City, San Francisco International Airport, and Silicon Valley.
From shopping to fine dining, outdoor activities and after-dinner treats, there’s no shortage of things to do in Burlingame:
Nicknamed the “City of Trees,” Burlingame is home to over 18,000 eucalyptuses, magnolias, and sycamores, all of which are protected against being cut, injured, or destroyed by a 1908 city mandate.
When you take into consideration all that it has to offer — great schools, mild climate, easy commute access, arts and culture, and a variety of shopping, dining, and nightlife alternatives — Burlingame’s motto, “Great place to visit, a better place to live,” seems to fit perfectly.
