Offering a rare combination of tranquil seclusion and access to one of the most vibrant economic areas in the world, Hillsborough is an ideal place to live, work, and raise a family. With its neighboring town, Burlingame, this area provides a unique combination of city sophistication and rural beauty. A quick drive to the San Francisco International Airport (around ten minutes from most points in Hillsborough) puts the world at your fingertips. We have a lot to brag about in Hillsborough - the home of Bing Crosby. Some of the most exclusive homes in San Mateo County are found in the community of Hillsborough. Great neighborhoods and schools, outstanding libraries and parks, and some of the best shopping and restaurants on the Peninsula. Hillsborough has something for everyone. The newly remodeled regional shopping center, Hillsdale Shopping mall. Stroll around our downtown commercial district, Burlingame Avenue. Hillsborough is an ideal community location, situated between two major freeways, 101 and I-280. Hillsborough provides a link with San Francisco to the north, and Silicon Valley to the south and the East Bay to the east. Hillsborough's proximity to San Francisco Airport provides convenient air transportation. Maintaining the quality of life remains a key goal for our community. We recognize our financial strength relies on a strong partnership between our residential and business community. Our elected officials and the many citizen volunteers who serve carefully plan the City's growth on our advisory boards and commissions.
