Living in Daly City, California

Because of its location in beautiful California, it shouldn't be surprising that Daly City residents spend a lot of time outdoors at the beach, playing sports, and enjoying the nightlife. Thornton State Beach is popular with residents and tourists for walking dogs, flying model planes, hang gliding, swimming, and just lounging in the sun. There are about five other beaches that, while smaller, are almost as nice. The city supports over 259 sports leagues and groups, including baseball, soccer, swimming, gymnastics, running.... let’s just say if you want to play something, you'll have no trouble finding companions.

There are tons of concerts, restaurants, clubs, and fun stuff to do in every neighborhood. And if the city doesn't have it, you can head up into San Francisco and find it there. Living in Daly City can be on the expensive side, but there's always something to do, and in comparison to living in San Francisco, it's a veritable steal.
