Living in Daly City
Daly City is a bedroom community of San Francisco with a good sense of community and comparatively high population density. Like other Bay Area cities that abut the Pacific Ocean, the climate is cool and occasionally foggy.
Compact Postwar homes sit on and spacious, hilly avenues. Modern houses in Daly typically sit on small lots.
Mussel Rock Park has oceanside trails, scenic views, and several other large parks and golf courses amongst the residential districts. The latter facilities include the sculpted, historic Olympic Club to the north of Daly City and, within its boundaries, Lake Merced Golf club.
Daly City has several neighborhoods with differing characteristics. To the east lies Bayshore Heights, which adds impressive vistas to the local charms. Geneva Avenue and the surrounding streets offer familiar chain restaurants, cafes, and bakeries. Crocker and the Southern Hills feature tangles of candy-colored homes on roads winding among the hillsides.
Top of the Hill is more culturally diverse than the rest of the city, with Filipino, Greek, Chinese, Mexican and Brazilian shops and restaurants. The Serramonte Center includes a substantial Saturday morning farmers' market, one of the oldest in the region, specializing in Asian foods.
Downtown Daly City centers on Mission Street in the Hillside district, where multi-ethnic cuisines, barbershops, and DIY stores vie for local trade. Daly City isn't a nightlife destination – it's more a dormitory town for nearby San Francisco. However, there are a few nightclubs, Irish pubs, and live music venues so residents can enjoy a local night out. There is even a bowling alley. West of Interstate 280, there's a small commercial district with banks, offices, healthcare facilities, and small businesses.
The best-known local venue is the fabled Cow Palace (built in 1941), an arena on the city border that hosts major concerts, trade exhibitions, and sporting events year-round.
Daly City may not be one of the most exciting parts of the Bay Area, but it's an excellent location for a starter home or to pick up an investment property.
