IMO, SLO County is the best place to live in CA. I don't see that here. Locals moved out, L.A. and the Bay Area moved in. I haven't met many out of staters or foreigners. And as far as I'm concerned this IS the spot.

I love San Luis Obispo & enjoy the drive from Paso Robles over the steep Cuesta grade. I had childhood friends at Cal Poly & would visit SLO as well as Pismo Beach. Once I was watching huge breakers at the beach near Morro Rock when a 15' wave swept up several sight-seers including me. All of us managed to hang on to rocks but it was a thrill for a teenager.

Let's face it, this really is the bottom line for a lot of the California haters. They want this state to be cheap and they want this state to be white.

The funny thing is, they can move to other states but, they're going to run into the same thing ... especially in places like Texas or Florida. Brown people don't just live in California.

No offense, Charles but by posting that ethic map, does that mean you live in Alabama because it is historically one of the most racial states in the nation?

The Southwest has always been heavily Latino since it was discovered\ settled & governed by Spain in 1700's.

I posted the map to illustrate the post prior to mine.

I moved to Huntsville for a lower cost of living, jobs, and more kids in the neighborhood (than we had in Colorado).

Here's a thread on the Alabama forum:

How racist is it in Alabama nowadays?

I was going to say the exact same thing. I was born in the OC, and my parents (with us) moved to Paso Robles in 1991 .. when there was only a KMart and two supermarkets.

In the early to mid 2000s, I noticed more and more expensive cars, stretch Hummers, and people flying into town for wine tasting. Sure, tourism is great, but we locals tend to blame the LA/SF people for adding the snobbery factor [and high house prices]. The differences between the locals and the LA/SF transplants are obvious.
