Totally depends on what you're looking for. I moved from NYC to SF at the beginning of the pandemic. Really miss a lot of aspects of NYC--restaurant/bar scene, easy transportation, how close and accessible everything is--but really prefer the Bay Area due to its proximity to outdoor activities, slower pace of life, and weather.
