Learn About This Location
Brisbane is a small city located in San Mateo County, California, on the lower steppes of San Bruno Mountain. It's near the southern border of San Francisco, next to the Bay and near the Airport. Brisbane is nicknamed "The City of Stars" because of a holiday tradition that began 65 years ago. At the start of the Holiday season, many residents and business owners place large, illuminated stars on the downhill sides of buildings throughout Brisbane- and many are kept up throughout the year.
