Daly City will always be known as San Francisco's neighbor to the south, or the "Gateway to the Peninsula" as it is officially called. But even apart from San Francisco, Daly City has a rich history. From early settlers to political troublemakers to boxers to farmers, Daly City's historical landscape is filled with fascinating and quirky characters. The city has evolved from a primarily rural town into the most populous city in San Mateo County– and a significant center for business and recreation as well.
