Downtown Burlingame Ave is the spot to explore hundreds of restaurants and shops. It’s one of the livelier shopping options in town. For a quieter, more “mom and pop” experience, head to Broadway—you’ll recognize it by the giant arch marking the entrance to the area.
Burlingame’s seaside location means fabulous seafood. Head to New England Lobster Market & Eatery for pounds of shellfish or lobster rolls and tacos. Preston’s Candy & Ice Cream is a long-standing institution where you can purchase locally made treats. In the mornings, they let shoppers watch the candy-making process. For craft beer, cocktails, and live music, head to Barrelhouse. For your fix of Peruvian/Venezuelan food, look no further than Limon Rotisserie—they make the best empanadas in town!

Things to Do

Burlingame is great for all things water. Enjoy the gorgeous sunsets or stroll down the coast. There are plenty of family-friendly activities in this charming community.
One of Burlingame’s most fun traditions is its Movies in the Park event. From August to September, you and your family can enjoy free family-friendly movies in front of a beautiful backdrop. Bring some popcorn and blankets for a lovely night out. 
The Burlingame Fresh Market runs every Sunday morning from January until Christmas. It’s a lovely open-air market that features local food, music, and crafts. Itching to be near the water?
