Daly City is a coastal gem at the northernmost edge of San Mateo County. Its boundaries stretch from the Pacific Ocean to nearly the shores of the San Francisco Bay.

Its origins trace back to a Spanish land grant in the 18th century, evolving from agricultural beginnings into a thriving farming community. The post-World War II urban expansion of the San Francisco Bay area brought about significant growth, transforming Daly City into a residential hub and a regional center for retail and healthcare. It now thrives with approximately 31,600 affordable residential units, ranging from single-family homes to apartments. Many offer incredible views of the Pacific Ocean, the San Francisco Bay, or some of the most picturesque golf courses in the country. It is incredibly accessible, with Highways 101 and 82, Interstate 280, and the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system connecting it to neighboring counties.

It becomes a focal point for regional activities, contributing to its vibrancy. It presents a promising trajectory for economic growth due to its prime location, diverse industries, and a dynamic, young workforce. It attracts several small businesses, increasing job opportunities and further advancements.

RECREATIONAL PARADISE: The city offers many recreational options, balancing work and play. Enjoy the scenic seven-mile coastline, explore San Bruno Mountain’s sprawling parkland, tee off at the prestigious Lake Merced Golf and Country Club, or witness lively events at the Cow Palace Arena. In addition, the Recreation Department provides over 2,000 classes in engaging activities, from ballroom dancing to quilting and intramural sports. It is a destination for a well-rounded and fulfilling living experience.

ENRICHING QUALITY OF LIFE: Daly City elevates the quality of life through educational excellence, convenient shopping, and top-notch healthcare facilities.
