Um, you need to pick a northern California city, please. They're not all the same, by a long shot.

And what do you mean by development?

Soccer - you want to play it or watch a local team?

I'm going to guess that you already know you want Boulder. The fact that you chose a particluar city vs half a state, says to me you want that city.

And Boulder is a great town. Though, too much snow for me

NoMore is right, there's a huge difference between San Francisco and Redding or Mt Shasta, for example.

If I could take my job with me I'd move to Chico in a heartbeat.

Davis in my opinion would be the closest fit.

I have generalized northern california,but actually I can choose between just a few cities from there: Davis,SF,Berkeley and Thousand Oaks in south.Boulder is the only available option in CO

I play and like to watch soccer,so if the city have a local team and some public soccer fields,it's already great for me

What's your budget? They're mostly very expensive cities, with the possible exception of Thousand Oaks (I don't know about that one). They're all liberal. I think Boulder and maybe Davis are safest.

The cost is not important,I'll pay for safety and wellness

You know, someone else mentioned Chico. I second that! Liberal, college town with lots of trees by the woods. Between Redding and Sacramento.

I thought of Alameda, CA, when you said you like to play soccer. My boss from the job I just retired from has a 30-something son who lives with him at home (failure to launch?) LOL!. Anyway, the son is an avid soccer fan and plays in local leagues.

Alameda is safe, has a lot of character - lots of Victorian homes, is just a short trip to either Oakland, Berkeley or SF.

So, if you are considering Berkeley, look at Alameda, too. It's technically an island, but you'd never know it. You just get off the freeway and drive down a street. I always forget it's actually an island when I go there - no large bridges or tolls or anything like that at all.

Davis is a great town, too, with a university. I used to live there, owned a condo there. Davis, though it does have a lot of trees, is very flat - great for bicycles (which is it's city name - bicycle city or something like that). But, it's not smack dab in the woods like Chico. The surrounding landscape is pretty dull - just flat agriculture. That whole area is a flood plain (though it doesn't flood in Davis proper). But, it's all very flat and plain, really, except for trees that have been planted in town.
