It’s a relaxed, welcoming neighborhood that backs up to the slopes of San Bruno Mountain, where you can see beautiful views of the Bay Area.

Daly City and beyond: Sights, silicon and surfing

Daly City is perfectly placed near other major city destinations, allowing you a taste of California at its edgiest and most innovative. Hop in your rental car and head to these three cities.

San Francisco

Once you’ve seen the famous sights of San Francisco, from the Golden Gate Bridge to the island prison of Alcatraz, stay a little longer to see what else the city has to offer. Elegant neighborhoods such as Pacific Heights have gorgeous Victorian architecture, while edgier corners such as The Castro and The Mission are known for their colorful murals and lively LGBTQ+ culture.
