And Columbia is a city in South Carolina. On the other hand, Cali is a city in Colombia.

I used it whilst typing, because it's easier on a phone and shortening it to SM wouldn't distinguish it enough for those reading from other states. So you don't have to look at it so culturally, got it?
It's clear you know very little about the West Side of Los Angeles so that makes you a wannabe. It's Samohi. Got it?

Yeah I grew up in the Valley, and never once did I ever hear anyone refer to Santa Monica as "SaMo." No one, and I mean, NO ONE from LA says that. The only time I've ever seen that used is on this website.

It doesn't make me a wannabe if I have no desire to live there, and I really don't understand why this is such a big deal to you. It's used as a shorthand whilst typing and you should probably stop making a fuss over such a petty little thing.

Yes, it sounds like OrCo is perfect for you.

While I got much love for my home state of Cali, where you got multiple big, populous and well-rounded cities (SF, LA, San Jose, San Diego), great beaches, and all kinds of gorgeous landscape ranging from mountains to rolling wine country hills, to sandy desertscapes, to majestic redwood forests, to beautiful freshwater lakes and ocean views, I'm rolling with Florida on this one.

As a tropical kinda guy, and especially as a water-lover, I'm going Florida for its beautiful beaches with turquoise water that you can actually swim in comfortably, and its lush greenery. Also as a hopeful future Miami Beach resident, a city that is so unique culturally and that at this moment in time I prefer over any Cali city, Florida wins. Also, east coast has greater travel options to Europe than the west coast, so Florida gets that bonus as well.

And on top of that, FL has lower cost of living and lower state income tax.

So, it pains me to say it...but for me, FL over CA
