Welcome to Burlingame
Located 15 miles south of San Francisco and flanking the shoreline of the San Francisco Bay, Burlingame's residents enjoy small town charm in the "City of Trees". Originally settled by wealthy San Franciscans looking for a better climate, the upscale city of 28,000 is named after attorney and diplomat Anson Burlingame. From its rolling hills and flatlands to gorgeous downtown Burlingame Avenue, the city is known for its high residential quality of life. Burlingame’s crime rate is notably low, and many of the city’s exceptional public and private schools nationally score in the highest 5%.
