San Mateo County’s largest city, Daly City was named after John Daly, a dairy businessman and landowner, who was known for his generosity towards refugees stranded after the 1906 earthquake. Immediately south of San Francisco, only 8 miles from downtown San Francisco and 9 miles from San Francisco International Airport it is close enough to enjoy the benefits of the City without its drawbacks (think parking). The US Census has cited Daly City as one of the cities with highest public transit ridership, and it is served by SamTrans, BART, and San Francisco Muni. The city is also known for its shopping and is popular with San Francisco residents for its ample free parking, and some stores prefer it to San Francisco for its cheaper real estate. Not just an urban center, this peninsula city has several golf courses, a professional tennis club, two public indoor swimming pools, and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s Thorton Beach, known as a good spot for hang gliding, paragliding, and plain old kiting. The Daly City Parks and Recreation Department offers over 200 classes, with athletic leagues, teen and senior services, special events and much more. Another draw for visitors is The Cow Palace which annually hosts events such as the Grand National Rodeo, Horse and Stock Show and the Dickens Fair, and has hosted hockey teams, dog shows, circuses, Disney on Ice, conventions, and concerts by bands such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, and many more. An active city just below the City, Daly City is an affordable, convenient San Francisco suburb.
