"affordable" & "california" don't go together. Do your homework, travel, read local newspapers & you'll find the answers you need. I was born & raised in Santa Rosa - it's not the same place it used to be. The crime has gotten worse, the amount of immigrants is out of hand, the city planning/layout is a freaking joke & there are WAAAAAAY too many stoplights anymore. I miss the trees & how close we were to the ocean, but the day to day grind was depressing so I moved out of state. Depending on how much land you want/can afford, or what types of jobs you are looking for, if you are/are not willing to commute - these factors will determine where to live in northern CA.

Hi, looking for a small town (20k ) with good climate, not too much fog but be able to grow lots of stuff. With good housing prices. Any suggestion?

How close/far do you prefer to be to major shopping? What I mean by that is chain grocery stores, perhaps a wlamart or target, a hardware store- not a major shopping mall, just the everyday things.

There are quite a few areas on the outskirts of small cities that are nice, but can be 20 minutes away from shopping. BUT- most of these places do have stores close just incase you are in tr middle of making cookies and realize you are out of butter.
