Around a hour and a half drive.

Say, do you go to any Sharks games? I am a HUGE Sharks fan.

Yes, I live in California. Santa Barbara, to be more exact, a resort town on the SoCal coast with some of the best beaches in the United States. And I love it here. Everyone should visit Cali at least once in thier lifetime.

I definitely want to visit California at some point. Of course I want to check out their amusement parks, but I really want to see Hollywood and visit some of the movie studios and that.

My family had a kind of "west coast trip" last year where we hit San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and some places in between. We did the whole San Fran thing, even going up into Napa Valley for a day, then drove down the coast, stopping in Monterey, Pebble Beach, Carmel, Big Sur, and San Simeon. The places we visited included Alcatraz Island, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Nepenthe restaurant, and Hearst Castle. In L.A. we did Magic Mountain and Hollywood, then spent a day trekking through the mountains and coves around Malibu.

I can't vouch for what living in CA is like, but from my vacational experiences there, it's a place you definitely have to visit sometime in your life. By the way, my favorite part of our trip wasn't any destination we stopped at, it was the drive down the California coast along highway 1. The Pacific coast is so much different from the Atlantic coast, and in such a breathtaking way. High cliffs, low clouds, breaking water, mysterious caves--it's something I'll never forget.

I have been to Valencia and Santa Monica I like California. I would not live in California because they don't have any cold weather in the winter.

I would really like to visit California, but I don't think I would ever live there.

I've been to California quite a few times, and I've always enjoyed myself while there.

I don't think I'd enjoy living there though.

My grandma just retired and moved from Chicago to SD, and I visted there last summer. She lives in the northern inland area of SD county, So It's semi desert there, and the sun is a scorcher but at night it's freezing. I went to the coast at La Jolla (great beach), Mission Beach (Belmont; Giant Dipper), Sea World, Downtown, Balboa park (museums, Zoo) Wild Animal Park, Knotts Soak City. There is a lot to do there, and even as a local, Everyone has a pool, or lives in a complex with a pool, The weather is nice, and I would live there if it wasnt so far from NYC :)

That's too bad because Cali is absolutely gorgeous. However, the politics are a pain.

That's because you have to go to San Francisco in the summer :)

WRONG. The Tahoe and Sierra Nevada's during the winter are extremely cold, and it snows up near the high elevations like Tahoe. Even in the summer things up there can still be cold.

Lived in Rancho Cucamonga, CA for 6 years. Loved it--Huntington beach in the summer, awesome outdoor style schools in the fall and spring, and winter time Big Bear Lake is the place to go.

SoCal kicks ass.... never been to NorCal. When I'm old and rich, I'm going to live somewhere in SoCal. I'll go to Knott's everyday and break Robert's record of the most rides on a ride in a year. :D

"Cali" and "Socal" are overused trendwhore monickers. Please stop using them.

I've been a couple times, to the north and south, and I think California is the most overrated state. LA and Hollywood was pretty cool, and in Monterey and Yosemite I saw some awesome sights, and I did the whole San Francisco thing, and while it was fun, people make a huge deal out of OMG BEVERYLY HILLS HOLLYWOOD LA CALI ROX! Its got its things just like most other states, and things that aren't great in it like all other states.

I have a question for you Cali residents. Is Disney's California Adventure open 365 like Disneyland?

I'm planning a trip out there in November. Trying to get everything together. Thx :D

Sir Willow

^ Yes, DCA is open 365 days a year.

I was born, bred, and grew up in CA (and sorry GP, but natives use the Cali, SoCal, and NorCal abbreviations all the time. It's quite natural to us) Lived most of my live in the Sacramento area, spent 3 years around Santa Cruz for college and where I met and married my wife, and lived for 6 years in Oxnard, which is an hour north of LA on the coast.

You name the terrain or weather, and Cali probably has it. Great beaches, though the ocean is a bit cold there compared to the Atlantic and Gulf. Mountains. It's the only state that has hosted both the summer and winter olympics. It's got just about anything you could ask for in that way.

It's also very expensive to live- to much so. And yeah, I won't touch the politics. There's reasons that businesses have been leaving the state for years, and that there are more people moving out of it than moving in. Including us moving to Florida a couple of months ago.

So I love the state, but at the same time I'm happy to be in Florida now where we might finally be able to get ahead of the game a bit, something that was impossible there.

So why do you still have SoCal as your location ???? ;)

How would you compare the two?

Besides cost of living.....
