Burlingame is a vibrant community on the San Francisco Bay, and the perfect choice if you’re looking to experience that small-town feeling. Located just south of the San Francisco International Airport, Burlingame boasts some great Victorian architecture, tasty restaurants, and even a museum dedicated to Pez Memorabilia (yes, we’re talking that tiny candy served up straight from your childhood—you know you wanna).
Caltrain picks up in China Basin or Dogpatch in the city and speeds down the peninsula to San Carlos. It is also possible to take BART to Millbrae and transfer to Caltrain (although this is a slightly longer journey).
