California is definitely one of the most fancied of the United States to both live and visit. With so many incredible and popular cities in the state, an important debate ensues; which city is better? Los Angeles or San Francisco? Here are some facts that may help you decide your own personal stance on the matter.
Los Angeles hosts a variety of fun activities and theme parks. They have Six Flags, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Universal Studios. San Francisco only has one, California’s Great America.
Along with the incredible theme parks, Los Angeles also has some of the most incredible weather. San Francisco is often foggy and not quite as warm as Los Angeles. However, the fog in San Francisco is much better than the polluted air of Los Angeles, which has the worst automobile pollutants in the entire United States.
Let’s talk beaches. While both cities have them, the ones in Los Angeles are much nicer for the average beachgoer, with fewer rocks and warmer water.
When it comes to traffic, San Francisco definitely has Los Angeles beat. A public transportation system is present in the more northern city while Los Angeles is constantly packed with a ton of traffic.
Ultimately, there are a decent amount of pros and cons to each city and your preference very well may differ from those around you. However, when choosing to live or visit one of these two marvelous cities over the other, consider the differences but know that both are incredible places with many cool and different opportunities.
