Downtown BurlingameDowntown Burlingame
The city of Burlingame itself is a great place to spend a day. With shops, restaurants and bars, there is no lack of entertainment or things to do to keep even the antsiest traveler busy. Food offerings such as sushi, burgers, pizza and more dot the streets on Burlingame Ave to the south and Broadway to the north. These streets provide great eating for lunch or dinner, as well as a thriving nightlife to keep you busy for quite a while. The best way to experience these areas is on foot, so finding a parking spot and walking along one of these streets is generally the best way to experience the area fully. A complimentary Downtown Burlingame Trolley is available to area hotel guests. Burlingame, CA, USA

If you ever wondered just how many variations of the dispenser exist, then the Burlingame California Museum of PEZ Memorabilia is a must-see stop on your next trip through the southern part of the San Francisco peninsula. With over 1,000 PEZ dispensers on display, the museum is a cross section of candy and popular culture history from the United States, as well as from around the globe.
