Hopefully you are already aware of the difference in the coastal climate between Southern CA and Northern CA. If you live near the beach in San Francisco pretty much expect the opposite of Miami; very cool, windy, and foggy much of the year. Water is cold along the west coast but Southern CA has about 3-5 months of ocean temperatures warm enough to swim in, Northern CA will never be warm enough to swim in. LA is more like Miami so that might be a little more familiar. But SF is a great city and if you want a huge change of both scenery and lifestyle then go with that.
