Burlingame itself is in a very good location. Because it is mostly flat, it is much easier to walk from place to place. Most of the driveways in the area are flat as well. The town has two train stations and one BART station within walking distance of the main street.

Rent in this area is incredibly expensive, near San Francisco levels.

Compared to most cities, Burlingame is one of the best due to the fact that the community is friendly and everything is accessible since Burlingame population is quite small.

You won't see crime around Burlingame. Most people here are middle class, so it's hard to find a homeless or anyone misbehaving.
