In terms of geographic location, it is ideally situated between the City and Silicon Valley, and also right next to the biotech centers in SSF. The weather is excellent. The City is also dedicated to constant improvement so you will see the current downtown (The Ave) being highly remodeled in order to elevate the consumer experience while shopping or dining in downtown.
If you make Burlingame your home, you will be more than pleased!
Most recently, Burlingame Intermediate school has announced an advanced social studies program the will be implemented beginning this fall to run parallel with the advanced mathematics program already in place.
Also, with the mounting cuts in school funding, Burlingame's BCE (Burlingame Community for Education) raised first one million dollars in its annual community giving and then an additional $500,000 in 3 months from a Game On campaign designed to make up for the last minute additional cut that was levied against the school district in the Spring of this year. This allows Burlingame to maintain its commitment to the fundamental core teachings (reading, writing, and arithmetic), but also to maintaining smaller class sizes, music education, art, and physical education.
We know property values tie in closely to good schools, Burlingame is a shining example of this.
Most of the homes were built in the early 20th century, which gives them a traditional charm. The newer homes are located in the Mills Estate area circa 1950â€™s and anything newer are the result of remodels or complete rebuilds, because there is no vacant land available for residential construction.
Burlingame offers an array of family oriented activities from youth and adult sports to arts and wine festivals. It is well known for its dining experience with restaurants located on Burlingame Avenue, Broadway, and hotel row. Restaurants include Rocca, Sapore Italiano, Barrracuda, Ecco, Isubne,Il Fornaio, Stacks, Benihana, and many many more. The Dining experience can be elegant to casual.
Shopping has changed dramatically over the past 20 years. Local merchant shops have given way to larger corporate chain stores on Burlingame Avenue. The discriminating shopper can now visit Polo Ralph Lauren, Apple, The Gap, Banana Republic, Pottery Barn, , and the newest addition Bevmo. There is the opportunity to refresh yourself at Peteâ€™s Coffee, Starbucks or indulge in a pastry at Copenhagenâ€™s Bakery. Broadway has somewhat maintained the local atmosphere with a smaller and more quaint genre. One local favorite is Prestonâ€™s Candy, where they make all the candy and ice cream on the premises and have been doing so for over 50 years.
In all Burlingame has something for everyone.
