Burlingame

Welcome to Burlingame

Burlingame (approx. pop. 28,000) is known as the City of Trees. In 2011, CNN listed the city as one of the Best Places to Live. A number of neighborhoods in Burlingame sprung up as a result of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and many of the homes are built in a Tudor style or complement aspects of Victorian architecture. The city is extremely pedestrian-friendly and has a significant shoreline on San Francisco Bay. It is home to many candy and chocolate companies, including the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia, Guittard Chocolate, the See’s Candies lollipop factory, and family owned candy stores Powell’s, Aida’s Chocolates, and Nuts for Candy.
