About Burlingame

Burlingame is a Mid-Peninsula city in California that attracts many visitors and residents alike. Known for excellent public schools, two bustling downtown shopping districts, a newly renovated flagship library and a restored train depot, Burlingame is one of the primary hubs of SF Bay Peninsula activity.

Bordering on present day Hillsborough and once the home of 19th century business tycoons, Burlingame pays homage to its illustrious past. Once the home to massive estates of those having made their fortunes in industries associated with the California Gold Rush, the city maintains an active archival library and museum located in the Burlingame Caltrain station.

In addition to its award-winning public school system, Burlingame is also home to notable private schools like Mercy High School, a Catholic school for girls located in the prestigious Kohl Mansion, a Historic Landmark.

Burlingame is home to many companies that support the aviation industry, due to its proximity to the San Francisco International Airport. Bay Area travelers often take advantage of the many beautiful hotels along the San Francisco Bay front. Virgin America is headquartered here, and it is the city’s largest employer.

Burlingame’s prime location between San Francisco and Silicon Valley has also made it a destination for tech and biotech companies. Commuters can easily get anywhere north or south of the peninsula via public transportation (Caltrain and BART) or the peninsula’s 3 major highways: 101, 280 and 82 (El Camino Real).

Often called “The City of Trees”, Burlingame has an ambitious Green program and offers ample outdoor activities for the whole family. Its 16 city parks include a community garden, a shorebird sanctuary, an off-leash dog park, and a variety of state-of-the-art children’s playgrounds. The Burlingame Aquatic Club offers recreational swimming, lessons and facility rentals to the entire community.
