Plus, you can drive on them year round with sunny & dry conditions.

Can't to do that in Michigan, especially right now when there's tons of snow and below-freezing temps (well I guess you can if they let you drive on a snow covered track).

One of the best parts of growing up on the Central Coast was watching Minuteman, Titan, and MX launches at Vandenberg AFB from an observation point only a few miles away. Man, that was fun.

Not sure if that observation point is still open.

some people in CA expect too much. wanting that shamoo life but dont have the shamoo salary. plenty of affordable places to live. Sure they're hours away from LA or SD but you can still live in California.
Fresno, Bakersfield, Palmdale, Victorville, You can afford large homes on a min wage jobs in these cities.
stop crying about not being able to live in down town LA or SF or SD. Leave those places to the rich folks.

I will do anything to keep living here and raise a family here. CA is beautiful.

Only the poors have to drive between destinations.

I mean I LOVE California but I would NEVER recommend Bakersfield or Victorville to anyone. I grew up in Victorville and I would NEVER, EVER go back there. I lived in Redlands before moving back east and I absolutely love Redlands and would move back in a heartbeat, but even that is not cheap for the average person (hard to find a nice, roomy house for below 500k).

Palmdale lol. **** that. Spent wayyyy too much time working in Mojave to live out in the middle of nowhere dust bowl.

Like ive said numerous times. Only 5% of CA is sought after to live in, and very few people can afford to live there. Especially move there. I think growing up there has its advantages. Worst case scenario your parents give ya a home.

North is somewhat bleak as well. Stockton, Lodi and Modesto make Sacramento the place to be and to a much greater extent it is far from that.

Temecula is actually quite nice and you are pretty much split between San Diego and Los Angeles. I don't think you'll be finding anything decent for less that $500k though...

There are a few places on Zillow right now that look pretty nice that range from the mid to high $300Ks. The only problem is the closest place I'd be able to find work would be between 45-60min away which kinda sucks.

I see cali hate all the time. They confused their needs and wants and put the hate on the things they want but can't get. It goes much deeper and it becomes a personality issue. people don't need a LV purse or a bmw M4 but want it and complain they can't afford it.
if you appreciate more and complain less, you'll enjoy life much easier. hate CA? leave, thanks.

Serious! I have always found that those people that say they hate California or can't wait to move out probably feel that way because they can't cut it in the state. I know I live in the Philly area now, but the only reason we moved was my wife's employer gave her a great opportunity and things just kind of fell into place. Otherwise, we'd still be there as we owned our house and had a great quality of life there. I know the government can create some headaches and yes you do pay higher taxes but you know what? It's the price you pay to live there. Additionally, every state has things that the government does that you're going to agree or disagree with. I can't walk into a Costco in PA and purchase or beer or liquor and quite frankly that pisses me the hell off, but I deal with it.
