There are lots of nice places to live in the Bay Area. My advice: make a short commute a high priority. I've known many people who commute 1.5+ hours each way so they can afford to live somewhere a bit bigger. Before making a final decision on where to live, try out the commute during the times you're likely to be traveling. I've lived in Mountain View, Sunnyvale, and Santa Clara. Of the 3, Mountain View was probably the nicest, especially if you're within walking distance of Castro Street.

If you're kid free I'd live in the city of san francisco, avoiding the Mission and Tenderloin. But buying prices are high.

I'm partial to the East Bay myself. There are lots of smaller cities with a small-town feel, and if you live close to the bay, you get considerably better weather than in San Francisco (or San Mateo for that matter): San Francisco gets very cold, and the South Bay gets very hot. Cities in the East Bay tend to be somewhat more temperate and less extreme. I'd suggest Berkeley, some parts of Oakland, or if you're ok being more inland and warmer, Orinda, Moraga or Lafayette.

I'm partial to San Mateo. The weather is nice just about all of the time, there are many parks, and downtown has quite the night life. There is super shopping too. Below is a fun website to check out.
