"Not a livable street, but a nice drive."

You don't want to live on El Camino Real. It turns into 101 and goes over the bridge and by the time it's livable (and there are any exist) it has turned into another street. But, I really liked the drive. This is where you fall in love with San Francisco and can really see its iconic beauty. Drive it with someone so that you can take your photos out the window-- there's really not a good place to stop.

"Once out of San Francisco, and in the burbs, Mission Street turns into El Camino Real all the way down the Peninsula"

El Camino Real, like Mission Street is the main thoroughfare that takes drivers from Daly City to San Jose. There is not shortage of traffic, fast food, and assorted businesses along the way. See's candies headquarters along with their flagship store are located here, along with Tanforan Park Shopping Center, and the Memorial Cemetary where servicemen, and women are laid to rest, each grave marked by uniform white stakes.
