So, I am a huge fan of quaint downtowns in CA. I have visited downtowns all over the state, and some of my favorites would have to be Napa, Davis, Lancaster, Tehachapi, Julian, and Arroyo Grande.

So much of CA has grown away from their downtown roots, but downtowns offer a sense of community that you cannot find in large suburban expanses. What are other great downtowns, in a small town quaint sense?
