well I am sure the OP has decided on a place by now, and I think he mentioned a place maybe, under 100,000. Sounds more like maybe Chico or someplace like that. Susanville might be a bit too small.

Check out Fallbrook in San Diego County. Nice small horse property town. We are known as the avocado capital of the world. Still some nice pieces of property at decent prices for california standards. It's 20 minutes away from Temecula.

Hilarious. Sometimes I think to look at the start date, but most times I don't. But maybe it will help some other curious person.

Unfortunately, that's what most Californians think of Bakersfield and that general area.

Funny you mentioned Mayberry. They filmed a movie for TV called Return to Mayberry about 20 years ago or so. They filmed it in Los Olivos, California. It is still a quiet little town, but it may be too expensive to live there.

Can't afford the coast and no desire for the desert. Is there a "Mayberry" with some cool people and a family atmosphere out there some place?

Real College Towns and with cultural opportunities, not suburbs.

Davis, Ca - maybe too pricey, green, clean, lots trees, very easy access to Sacramento, easy access to Bay Area.

Chico, Ca - maybe too isolated, green, clean, lots of trees.

San Luis Obispo, Ca - maybe too isolated and pricey, central coast beach town.

Arcata, Ca - maybe too gray and wet, isolated, rugged north coast.

Default avoid towns with a high hispanic population

unless you yourself are hispanic, you probably want to avoid towns that are more than 20% hispanic. not that other races can't be bad to be around, but....
