Find the best place to stay — Daly City

A haven close to San Fran

Just 10 miles from downtown San Francisco, Daly City puts you within striking distance of fantastic shopping, a smorgasbord of farm-to-table restaurants, and the gleamingly iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Locals like to refer to it as the "Gateway to the Peninsula" and it's easy to see why. As well as exploring iconic San Fran attractions like that crimson-hued bridge, eerie Alcatraz Island, and Fisherman's Wharf, Daly City vacation rentals unlock access to a host of other highlights in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Get high on San Bruno Mountain

For most people, Daly City serves as a jumping point to bohemian San Francisco. Thanks to the city's BART rapid transit system, you can day trip to the Golden Gate City in less than 15 minutes. Daly City vacation rentals make things easy with a great line-up of properties just steps from local BART stations. Feel like stretching your legs? San Bruno Mountain State Park is laced with hiking trails and scenic picnic spots that offer sweeping views over San Francisco. Coastal Mussel Rock Park is another favorite, with scenic vistas, windswept trails, and sandy beaches.

Go wild at San Francisco Zoo

Home to Sumatran tigers, grizzly bears, and Amazon tree boas, San Francisco Zoo is one of California's top family attractions. As well as letting you get face to face with exotic animals, its botanical gardens are the perfect place to enjoy a picnic. Of course, San Francisco is an attraction in itself. Whether you want to go rumbling along in historic cable cars, puffing your way up impossibly steep, much-photographed Lombard Street, or admiring a bevy of gorgeous Victorian mansions in Alamo Square, Daly City vacation rentals are ideally placed to make the most of this great region.

Sunshine and summer fog in Daly City

San Francisco may not be famous for its weather, but visit in summer and there's every chance of soaking up that sunshine. May to August is the busiest time of the year, with legions of vacationers descending on the San Francisco Bay Area. September has a reputation for being persistently damp, with thick blankets of fog often enveloping the city. That said, gazing up at a fog-shrouded Golden Gate Bridge is an iconic San Fran experience.

Discover the Bay Area from Daly City

Like San Francisco, Daly City sits on the tip of a peninsula that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. There are plenty of opportunities to soak up the scenery, including calf-crunching hikes in Twin Peaks. The grassy 64-acre hilltop park is a great place to work up a sweat, with hiking trails leading up to a pair of summits offering 360-degree views of the Bay Area. It's also worth noting that Daly City is just a stone's throw from California's famous Wine Country region. This means that a glass of luscious red or fruity white is never too far away.
