Burlingame is an absolute ideal place for those who love the small-town life. I have grown up here, and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. Everyone knows everyone, and it's a very friendly and safe place. There may not be a lot to do, but you get the opportunity to form close relationships with friends and family.

Burlingame is a very nice, small town just south of Topeka. The people are very friendly, and the town is very nice. It has a wonderful historical background, as the main street is a large brick road, the Santa Fe Trail.
Burlingame is a nice small town located just 25 minutes south of Topeka. Its cozy and charming. However, it is better to live in the country than in town because the houses are close together.
