Plenty of day trip destinations surrounding San Francisco. Head north in Marin communities of Tiburon, Sausalito or Belvedere. Or head further north to the Wine Country and it's quaint towns of Sonoma, Petaluma, Healdsburg, etc. (Although it's likely warmer there!). ... more

Its only mostly true. Many mornings and evenings have fog or are overcast. Summer is usually the worst for fog. September and October are usually the best for good weather.

I grew up in Mill Valley and think it is great. I couldn't imagine a better place to raise children. However, this question is more about your career. IF the opportunities for your career in Silicon Valley & SF, then you may want to consider living in SF and south because you never know when a new opportunity will present itself. Trying to get from Marin to the Peninsula would be a nightmare commute and make you miss a lot of time with your children.

San Francisco is a great place to raise children. The schools here are more diverse in that you have many options that are not available in suburban school districts - like language immersion programs. Not to mention the cultural opportunities available to you your children that don't exist in the suburbs.

Based on the information you provided it sounds like you'd have a pretty good case for an eviction, but tenant rights laws in San Francisco are very strict, so it's generally not a quick or easy task. As others mentioned below, your best bet will be to hire a real estate attorney who has a lot of experience with evictions specifically in SF, since the laws here differ from other parts of the state.

Good luck!

try craigslist or rental websites.
Just about anything is rented out ASAP. There is a severe shortage of housing.

Totally agree with the answers below - a locksmith is the way to go...I suppose a brick is an option too, but I wouldn't advise it! :-P

SF is not really a pool party type place, that would be more Vegas or Palm Springs. But there are cool rooftop spots such as Jones (620 Jones), Lolinda (2518 Mission St) and Hotel Vitale's bar Americano which are some of the hot spots on a sunny day in the city! ... more

Bill Eckler answered:
Today's smokers have become educated to the needs of other thanks to the smoking regulations. I for one can relate since I hyper sensitive to smoke and can smell it from inside others peoples cars, on the clothing of others, outside my home, etc.

Rude? absolutely not...but understand that are other ways of dealing with this issue as well. Simply shutting a window in their presence should send an unspoken message that you are having an issue. Any individual sensitive to the needs of others will get this loud and clear.

Considering placing a fan in the window that blows the air outward should make a difference as well.

Above all, advocate for yourself but do so in a diplomatic and sensitive manner that takes into consideration their needs as well.

Good luck,
