Burlingame Ave makes my nights full of joy. I work at Sixtos and am eager to pay for college.

Phils coffee is my favorite location to work. I study and mingle with my friends after school. I went to middle school in Burlingame and have seen it transform over a decade. It is my favorite city.

The library is also one of my favorite places. Adults, kids, people from all ages working is amazing. The architecture and spaciousness is surreal.

Burlingame's climate is perfect as well. You can never go wrong walking on Burlingame Avenue, even late at night. New places are opening and the street is becoming even livelier.

If you are looking for a small suburban town to invite your friends out for lunch, this is the place to go! It is modern, clean, and well-kept. You must go to Burlingame Avenue, where you will find a long street full of restaurants and outdoor patio seating. Enjoy!
Amazing place with many restaurants and parks, as well as a good environment. The schools are full of useful resources and friendly with all the suburbs. Although slightly on the expensive side, Burlingame has wonderful housing.
