      I love living in Pacifica. It's a small city just south of San Francisco so there is always a ton of things I can do. The downside is that the cost of living is pretty high, but it's totally worth it. Since Pacifica is right on the water, there are a lot of places with beautiful views of the ocean.

      The weather in Pacifica is pretty mild which I enjoy very much. It doesn't get too hot in the summer, so if you like to spend a lot of time outdoors you can stay fairly comfortable. There's a huge amount of possibilities for work and education too. Finance and IT are the two biggest ones.

      There are public buses you can use to get around the city but it might be easier if you have your own car. That way you can easily visit more places such as the San Pedro Valley Park which is on the southern edge of the city.
