Burlingame Reviews

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.
Review Burlingame
I love being in a small town and knowing nearly everyone. The only down side of knowing everyone, is knowing everyone. It is a place that is nice to escape from every now and then, but everyone comes back home once in a while no matter how far they go.
