Does anyone remember proposals about 20 years ago to divide California into three independent states of NorCal, Central Cal, and SoCal? NorCal was going to go from Marin to Oregon, Central Cal from SF (and including Sacramento) to Santa Barbara, and SoCal was from Ventura to Mexico. The problem is that the state is really long, and while SoCal is often considered to the be from Ventura south, can the entire rest of the state really all be NorCal? That would make NorCal like 500-600 miles long, running along 6 parallels, and SoCal only about 200 miles long, and only along 2 or 3 parallels. I like the 3-region breakdown better. The difficulty is that the Bay Area would be at the border between the Northern and Central regions and would have people arguing over what area they belong to. We have elements of all parts of the state coming together here into a real melting pot.

If you don't like discussing trivial **** about cities then maybe you shouldn't be a member of an internet forum called city data.

Cen-Cal all the way. I don't see how this doesn't make any sense.

Like you said, this is "trivial ****" (the auto censor cut off the last 4 letters, but I can guess). Don't people have better things to worry about? I like city-data except for all the dumb questions.

It doesn't make sense because I've never heard of Cen Cal ever. Yes there's such a thing as the central valley and the central coast. There's just no such thing as Cen Cal that's like saying Cen Carolina.

"Better things", as in making multiple posts telling everyone how much they don't care about a topic?

It's in Wikipedia, therefore, it's true. Don't you know that?

I would love to know how you reason this.

California is one state with many more subregions beyond North, Central and Southern California. North and South Carolina are two separate states which, I'm sure, have their own sub-regions.

If you live in California and haven't heard references to Central California you need to get out more.
