If you are shopping around for a new home in a beautiful location with great public education, low crime rate and plenty of activities for the whole family, you should consider Burlingame. The small city is a suburb of San Francisco with a stellar educational system, gorgeous weather and good community. Just outside of San Francisco, residents of Burlingame can experience the perks of city life without living in the hustle and bustle of it.
Burlingame is located on the beautiful San Francisco Peninsula, and its prime position allows residents to enjoy the San Francisco Bay shoreline. Nicknamed the “City of Trees,” Burlingame has an impressive landscape setting filled with various species of trees. In fact, it is against the law to cut down or injure any of the trees within the city. The city is home to several parks, Victorian-style architecture and local businesses that support the community and residential life.
There are vast opportunities to take advantage of the gorgeous weather with outdoor activities such as hiking or biking. Many Burlingame residents love to bike and hike the trails of Mills Creek Canyon Park, which is located on Adeline and Hillside. Washington Park, at 850 Burlingame Avenue, offers kids a sandpit, tennis and basketball courts.
The ArtzFest Jazz Festival takes place in Burlingame every August on Burlingame Avenue. This festival is the result of the Burlingame Art and Jazz Festival collaborating. Several award-winning artists travel from all over the world to perform here. The festival runs for two days and provides entertainment for the entire family.
