Washington and Oregon have California beat in terms of cost of living, weather, and natural scenery.

When I lived in California I would take trips up to Oregon and Washington and was amazed at the scenery ..the lush green mountains.. cool mist .. fresh air ..cleanliness, was just beautiful . It was kinda depressing when I got back to So Cal ..

You made up the part about unemployment. California has a lower unemployment rate than Texas, Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Arizona among others.

Why make stuff up man?

What a mean, pathetic comment! But, I suppose you can only expect as much from a bitter, close-minded Irish Mass-hole.

Heres the biggest reason why Southern CA isnt great. They have no fresh water. No lakes. No rivers. If youre a fish like me, no fresh water is a no go.

Good point. I think California is among the most beautiful, but best......too subjective. There can be no "best" state.

I mean to be fair is the response any better? Stereotyping, angry and racist nice work.

California could be one of the best states. It has it all. Great climate, scenery, the shoreline, agriculture, etc. Unfortunately, it has been ruined by the liberal/progressives, and turned into a socialist hell hole. I will never live there again.

There are some artificial lakes for recreation like boating/fishing, but you are right for the most part. Anyone who grew up in the Midwest, south or east coasts going to rivers and lakes for all sorts of activities would definitely notice the lack of freshwater activities.

In SoCal, when we want to swim, we head to the pool or the Pacific.
