Visitor Information

With twelve major hotels located along its eastern border with the bay and San Francisco International Airport just a few miles to the north, Burlingame is a popular destination for visitors. The city offers quiet stretches to walk amid wetlands dotted with egrets, pelicans and great blue herons, as well as bustling streets lined with stores featuring the latest fashions, designer home furnishings, handcrafted gifts and first-class restaurants. 

The Burlingame Trolley provides free transportation between designated hotels to Burlingame’s two major shopping and dining districts: Burlingame Avenue and Broadway. The city is also well connected to San Francisco to the north and Palo Alto and other cities in Silicon Valley to the south via a subway, trains, buses and shuttles. If you’re driving, be sure to download a copy of the city’s parking maps to help guide you to free and low-cost lots. 

There are lots of free events in Burlingame, including Sunday afternoon concerts, family movie nights, Shakespeare in the Park, an annual pet parade and arts festivals. Check the city’s calendar to learn what’s coming up.
