Favorite city in the entire state is easily Palm Springs. Every time I’m there I feel like I’m back in the Middle East.

1. Number one would be Sacramento for lack of air pollution.
2. Number two would be Long Beach because of lack of air pollution.

Very true, No More Snow.... I, for one, have never seen northeastern California (Susanville, Mt Lassen, etc) and I suspect many of us aren't even aware of its existence... I haven't been to the Gold Country either.

Anyway, some faves:

Big city: San Diego.

LA suburbs: Santa Monica, Pasadena, Whittier.

Small cities: San Luis Obispo, Monterey.

And a few fun, quaint towns: Julian (eastern San Diego County), Solvang (Central Coast), Arcata (North Coast)

It depends if we are talking visiting or living: for visiting I would put San Francisco at the very top, but there is a lot to see in L.A. as well as San Diego and places like Laguna Beach and Malibu are awesome. Now for living I would rate the Sac area following by the east San Gabriel Valley. If I wanted to stay and live in a smaller community I would pick Placerville or Paradise.
