Review of Burlingame, California

convenient to Silicon Valley but kind of vapid, no
Star Rating - 2/16/2010
Burlingame is about half way between Silicon Valley and SF. It is a narrow piece of land stuck between 101 and the mountain foothills. Whereas quality of life is generally good with low crime, a small but nice downtown shopping area and proximity to a large recreational area (crystal spring reservoir...) life is unduly expensive due to its closeness to Silicon Valley and San Francisco. If you are able and willing to shell out over a million dollars for a small house, then pick a more exciting place while you are at it (San Francisco, Berkeley or Palo Alto just to name a few).
