I live in the VA Beach metro. Eight of the twenty five people I work with relocated from California, all SoCal, including myself. All had moved here prior to the job we have now.
This area has a laid back, beachy vibe with quite a few amenities shared with the Southland. More than half the population of this metro (1.7 million) were born outside the state. The military, excellent East Coast location, milder weather, easy access to world class cities, beaches, mountains, relative affordability, stable/growing economy and water water everywhere have brought in people from all over the country including quite a few from the Golden State.

This Californian is about to move 5.5 hours...from Northern back to Southern California. It is kind of like moving to another state anyway.

The more useful question is: where are the Californinans NOT moving?

LOL so true, my sister is a real estate agent in Scottsdale, AZ and says that she gets more people in the process of moving from California looking for homes than just about any other group of people. All you have to do is take a very short 5 min. drive down any street in Phoenix area and you will spot at least 5 California license plates.

Mainly Texas. If Black Californians move to the South east of Texas, it's mostly Atlanta. But mainly Dallas and Houston which has picked up a ton of Black Californians.

Here in Chicago, I know a lot of Californians.

But I'd imagine places like Austin, Denver, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Seattle get the most.

Since California has the largest population of the 50 states(about 12 percent of the total US Population) and is much bigger than any other state in the Western US(you have to get all the way to Texas to find another huge state in terms of population), it logically stands that they'd make up the highest percentage of migrants in the Western US. But, I mean it seems like overall Americans are always moving everywhere as it is.

I don't think I live in the part of California that sends a lot of people to Arizona and Nevada. I would guess that's the Inland Empire, High Desert and Central Valley.
You're perceptions of California and the west in general are consistently off.

I split my time between LA and Scottsdale and I full heartedly agree.
