OK, we've all heard which parts of California are the richest, smartest, poorest, most liberal, artsy, have the best weather, etc.... so now which ones are simply the friendliest and most easy-going (to everyone, not just locals)? And which are the least...?

The standard line I've read around here seems to be Fresno sucks but the people are friendly.

Most anywhere but the big cities: (Los Angeles/Southern California, San Francisco/Bay Area, San Diego, Sacramento, etc).

I was in Calistoga a few weeks ago and the folks were friendly as heck. Same applies for most of the Central Coast.

Agreed, although I probably find Sac the best of the big 'uns. And maybe it's just that they depend alot on tourism, but seems I often end up chattin' up a storm with total strangers in Nevada City. Though oddly the ''laid-back'' North Coast towns like Arcata, Fortuna or Eureka, not so much (excluding the stoners...)!.
