I've seen beautiful victorian architecture all over the country... IMO some of the best examples are throughout the Midwest though.

The nearby town of Ferndale has one of the greatest concentrations of Victorian architecture in California, if not the entire western US.

Saint Paul, Minnesota has an absolutely ridiculous amount of well preserved Victorian homes including the longest row of Victorian mansions in the entire country, bar none. Walking around Cathedral Hill and Summit Avenue is a breath taking and surreal experience. If you like Victorian Architecture I highly recommend a trip to Saint Paul. You will not be disappointed!

PS
There is also a plethora of other interesting old buildings and architectural styles in Saint Paul, including: Neo Classical buildings ex: Saint Paul Union Depot, French Renaissance architecture, ex:The Cathedral of Saint Paul (which is astounding) and Richardsonian Romanesque ex: The Landmark Center and Renaissance ex: Saint Paul Central Library/James J Hill Reference Library.
