Burlingame Reviews

15 reviews
All Categories
Burlingame itself is in a very good location. Because it is mostly flat, it is much easier to walk from place to place. Most of the driveways in the area are flat as well. The town has two train stations and one BART station within walking distance of the main street.

Rent in this area is incredibly expensive, near San Francisco levels.
Review Burlingame
Burlingame is a great place for young kids. The public schools are great, especially the elementary schools.
I love Burlingame it is a town the give off the feeling of know how everyone is and been so friendly but it is close enough to the cities that you don't feel like you are stuck in the small town. I think that Burlingame has a great selection of shops and restaurants. It also has wonderful school with children parks and activities all over the place.
