an urban environment and culture like NYC is not to be found in SF.
mountains like Denver are several hours away from SF in the Sierras, LA actually has better and far higher mountains.
the small town laid back community vibe of Portland is certainly not how I'd describe SF.

SF has a good balance, and might be the most well rounded city when it comes to nature/weather/dense city in the U.S. but if you want the *best* of these categories, it is not.

From your description, A mix of LA + NYC sounds great, maybe also a little bit of San Francisco and Seattle too, such as the Chinese and Japanese food, and the NFL and MLS team.
