The complication is that some of our pollution is seasonal. Eureka NORMALLY has clean air but you wouldn't believe the haze and smoke during the fall fire season. Lasts about six weeks.

I live just outside Redding, and think you would be hard-pressed to find an area with cleaner air, and also affordable property. You might consider seeking higher elevation, to get out of the summer heat, such as Shingletown or Burney. Redding has outstanding medical facilities also.

You need to live as far west as possible. Air pollution in CA is caused by dirty western cities like LA polluting the air, then mother nature blows the pollution eastward where it gets trapped in the heat inversion layer over the inland cities like Pomona, Riverside, etc.

So the basic rule: Don't live east of a heavily populated area

Not EVERYWHERE rural. You have to look at the wind patterns. The high desert in SoCal has a lot of air pollution that blows in from the more populated areas of LA & San Bernardino counties.

If the family is based in southern CA, SLO or Morro Bay are probably the best options to stay close.

Default The Antelope Valley

The Antelope Valley in SoCal does not have smog or haze. By national standards it may not be amazing, but for SoCal standards it definitely has some of the cleanest air. It is high enough elevation that the wind that comes from the coast is above the marine layer, and thus much, much cleaner than most of LA. The only issue that some face is slightly higher allergies because of much farming around the area.
