What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Daly City

Filipino town. All of the people here don't go out of their houses I am really wondering why. I would need to go to the city to see some people around. I like going to the golden gate park

The environment itself is world class. The natural beauty of nature. Its a shame that people take this for granted and follow their low desires instead.

The locals are good and the recreation sites because thus the boys grow healthy and happy which help them in their self esteem and relate healthy to others

It is a relatively quiet neighborhood. Stores and professionals are within walking distance. Plenty of walking area for the pets.

Everything is in walking distance; there are lots of nearby restaurants to choose from, good public transportation, many cultural events, nice parks, close proximity to beaches, good jobs and schools.

It's very active at day and night and people light to walk a lot and everyone is super nice and friendly and would help you if your were ever on need

All About

Living in Daly City, CA

Known as the "Gateway to the Peninsula," Daly City has the largest population in San Mateo County and is considered an industrial center because of its young labor force, central location and diversified economy.

For Daly City apartment hunters, San Bruno Mountain can provide an opportunity to escape the daily grind and experience some of the best natural beauty that California has to offer.

The mountain, which offers 2,063 acres of diverse park land and excellent views of the Pacific Ocean and the entire Bay Area, is part of Daly City's seven-mile coast that can be visited by any person renting an apartment in the area.

The San Bruno Mountain State Park is located at the northern edge of the Santa Cruz mountain range and provides Daly City apartment tenants with a plethora of recreational activities.

Trails for hiking, the most popular activity in the park, are easily accessible from many neighborhoods in the area. Additionally, picnic sites complete with tables, barbecue pits and drinking water are available, and a nearby meadow is used by many visitors to play volleyball and frisbee.

For apartment renters looking to simply enjoy their surroundings, San Bruno Mountain offers myriad sightseeing opportunities of nearby mountains and valleys as well as the San Francisco Bay Area. Plenty of animal, bird and plant species can be found on the mountain.

History buffs can also check out an old Nike Missile early warning radar site at the mountain's summit. The radar station there was used to detect enemy aircraft and direct missiles to designated targets.
