Known as the “City of Trees,” lovely Burlingame maintains a lush ambiance, due in large part to the town’s verdant parks and gorgeous open spaces. Most residential properties in Burlingame have trees owned and protected by the city, and the community also has many eucalyptus groves that add to the large number of trees the town boasts. A city of friendly and unique areas, Burlingame neighborhoods range from the charming streets and historical homes of Easton Addition, to the exquisite views and numerous Eichlers of Mills Estates. Burlingame is also home to two distinct main street areas, each with its own personality. While lively Burlingame Avenue features outstanding dining and boutique shopping as well as anchor stores like Pottery Barn and Banana Republic, Broadway is more of the locals’ scene with a variety of small service stores, bistros, and cafes.
Besides being in close proximity to San Francisco and SFO, what attracts me to Burlingame are the small town quirks and historic Bay Area novelties that give the city its singular character. The community’s Pez Museum features an example of every Pez candy dispenser ever sold, and the town is also home to the It’s-It, the one-of-a-kind ice cream sandwich invented in San Francisco in 1928 by an amusement park owner. But its Burlingame’s sense of community that attracts me most. The town hosts top-notch local events year after year, including The Burlingame Art and Jazz Festival, Pet Parade, and Burlingame on the Avenue, and has also established Fresh Market – one of the few community-owned farmer’s markets in the Bay Area.
