But people sometimes ask me if I surf or if I've spotted any movie stars-Hollywood is a good 8 hour drive from here!
Yes, I understand that people don't want their real estate prices driven up. We've seen ours skyrocket with the influx of S. Californians and Bay Area "transplants." But, if you wanted a better place to retire/raise your family/etc., wouldn't you do the same thing? I am tired of people blaming Californians for all their problems. Yes we have our share of "fruits and nuts" here but we also have people who go to work every day, go to church on Sunday, and just try to raise their families to the best of their abilities. In short, people just like you! Let's be a little less prejudiced people.
We are really talking about Socal, not you. You almost don't qualify. You pretty much belong to the Pacific NW. Redding is very nice. I trying to decide between Redding and Meford myself.

Yeah, those of us who live in SoCal can just burn in hell because our lives aren't worth much.

We have a fair number of Californians coming into Connecticut- some are returnees and some newcomers- I have helped many on this forum with issues of where to live, schools, and housing costs.

All the members on the Connecticut forum have been helpful as well. I know here in Connecticut we welcome those from the Golden state- and feel they have much to offer.

Perhaps if people in other states didn't want their prices driven up they should a) lower their prices so everyone can afford them; or b) simply not sell to Californians.
in a more ideal world, that would work. but the endless pursuit for the almighty $$$ still holds considerable sway in all parts of the country. if the real estate vendors out that high priced states are moving into a low cost area, they will naturally jack the prices up. then it becomes a feeding frenzy to raise home prices for every house in the low cost areas. californians have hijacked the once beautiful austin that i spent my college years in for example.

To get back to the point, I have lived in Rural Nor Cal and Southern California.
I cannot speak for all, but it seems that the Californians in the big cities, (SF, SD, etc...) seem to be more open to outsiders only if they have traveled themselves. I have friends who have NOT traveled much and they seem to resent the East Coast and the south. I would say this is due to IGNORANCE, and the lacking of funds, and the lacking of the will to travel.

There is essentially one reason why people don't like Californians. Californians tend to be condescending to people from other parts of the country. This is especially true concerning the Southeast and Midwest portions of the US. I have experienced it myself. I really like visiting California, but the superiority complex of many residents is a bit much.

Hey, drive 120 mph around here, and you won't have to wait for a sheriff to bash something out of you.

Prick.
