This area is home to singles and families alike, as the town is filled with activities and amenities to satisfy everyone’s desires.

Ranked among the best places to live in the San Francisco Peninsula, Burlingame is without a doubt one of the Bay Area's best treasures. In fact, the area has two bustling downtown districts that are continuing to grow.
