I didn't realize until recently that when I travel abroad and people ask me where I am from, I say California and not the US. Someone brought it to my attention and I never even realized that I was doing that. Lol
Both states do have their own identity. Both have a significant history, some of it shared that is not only moderately distinct but also rather abundant which spotlights the two. Both alone have economies the size of other top 10 countries.

I always thought the coolest place was California. That's where everything starts. But not so much anymore as hoards of people are leaving and saying they don't like it anymore.

So I'd say Oregon probably. That seems the coolest and a lot of CA people are moving there.
I hope you're joking when you say Oregon. Yes people have moved there from CA but more have moved from CA to Washington and even Texas. If California is losing the title of being first to any place in the west it would be Washington, certainly not Oregon. Washington has a growing tech industry and many wineries are opening there, some have relocated from CA. They're not going to Oregon.

Agreed. Seattle> Portland any day of the week. I work in the PNW 2 months per year on average and despite the higher taxes, would much rather be in WA.

New York City. It's the capital of the world.

Thanks for your useless, stereotype-filled contribution to this thread.

Some cities in Orange county California like Mission Viejo, Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel or Aliso Viejo. Honorable mentions would be Maui, Honolulu, and Scottsdale, AZ.
