Yesterday I posted my first LA vs. SF comparison list, where San Francisco beat out Los Angeles in a pure city on city fight. My list addressed what I thought was a gaping oversight on most internet lists on the same topic. They would often (though, not all of them) grant LA regional status, while limiting SF to its city borders. Meaning, some lists gave LA points for things like Disneyland, even though the happiest place on earth isn’t even in the same county. HOWEVER, one of my earliest posts on this blog also addressed this ill comparison. “In Defense of Los Angeles” showed how you can’t say Los Angeles has, for example, a horrible public transit system and SF has a great one because SF is tiny compared to LA. The scales are different. So now that we have seen how city vs. city stacks up, let’s make this a fair fight by comparing the two general areas together. So how does the LA Area stack up against the SF Area?
