Where in the world is everyone in California relocating? The exodus seems to be growing.

I stayed at the Plaza in Kansas City last month. There's a great Spanish restaurant under the Freeway around downtown. I can't remember it's name. I love KC.

After 19 years in CA - 11 in the Bay Area- we decided it was time to leave. Moved to central Ohio in July of this year.

I was recruited by an Ohio company and the terms were good enough to leave the high cost, traffic jams, and high tech jobs being outsourced to Asia.

Arizona.., near Queen Creek. After many years in Northern California, we moved here a couple of years ago.
Can't say its perfect, but we are really learning to enjoy being less crowded, shopping in clean and newer stores, lower cost of living over all and so forth.
Our area is in a "fringe" of Phoenix, so I'm glad we don't commute!
It's close enough for quick trips to California- especially Southern Cal, so we can get our ocean fix now and then.
On visits, it's astounding to see how packed everything is- restaurants, movies, stores, freeways (!) after you aren't living in it everyday.
We'll always love California, but really can't see going back.
"Nice Place to Visit" as they say.

I have met plenty of people from California in Washington and Oregon. I knew of somebody who settled in one of the small Oregon coastal towns and they told me that when they sold their house, they were able to buy two and still have money left over.

Born in San Jose and raised in the Central Valley, moved to Idaho 16 years ago and have no regrets. Love the four seasons and the smaller town charm.

We moved almost 4 years ago from North County San Diego to Monument,CO also (see post from Charles above). When we visit SoCal, at least twice a year, it makes me believe our move was a good one. It's funny how people think you have to be delusional to find that there is life outside of SoCal. We loved living in San Diego and understand the attraction, but not everyone wants to put up with the negatives to have nice weather and access to the ocean. Lots will. But there are tons of folks who have realized there is more to life. Nope, it's been a few years and I don't 'want back in'.
