      The City of Trees: Life in Burlingame
      I've found my forever city in Burlingame, CA! I'm coming up on my 4th year living in Burlingame, and I couldn't be happier. We get great weather all year round, and are close to everything we could possibly need. Shopping in San Francisco is not far at all, and you are very close to the beautiful shoreline of the bay.

      I relocated to Burlingame for work, and it has been great ever since. A lot of employment opportunities since you are so close to San Francisco. The home prices are high, so be prepared to also look for apartments or condos that might be a little easier on price. Overall, you get what you pay for when living in this city. Great school systems, relatively low crime, and amenities on every corner.

      One of my favorite places to go since living here, is Stacks. Stacks is primarily a breakfast restaurant, which as you can guess from the name, focuses on pancakes. So if you love pancakes, and or breakfast food at all, you will definitely want to pay them a visit!
