Burlingame California is located 16 miles south of San Francisco on the San Francisco Peninsula. Burlingame extends all the way from the shores of San Francisco bay into the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, and Is celebrated, worldwide, for its stunning natural beauty and year round mild climate.
Burlingame began its historic journey in the late 19th century as the vision of a group of real estate investors that included William Ralston, Francis Newlands and William Sharon, whose names, as well as other Burlingame pioneers, are memorialized in the naming of many of Burlingame’s streets. The inspiration for Burlingame came from the City Beautiful Movement championed by Frederick Olmstead, the landscape architect of New York’s Central Park, and the Arts and Crafts movement adopted by such Architects as Frank Lloyd Wright. Also having much influence over the future of Burlingame was John McLaren, the architect of Golden gate Park.
