It's like those baywatch tourist that come to ca - the actors union would have slapped OSHA fines for doing all that in CA cold water. Boy do they got a shock.
You sir, are a mental midget.

Well let's see, I've actually been to Texas and was there for a month. It's wasn't like I was just passing through or only there for a weekend. Don't get mad just because I prefer CA over TX.

Lol Dude NOBODY thinks some ghetto area in CA like Stockton is better than a nice area in another place or state. Compare a ghetto area in CA to a ghetto area in TX. It's stupid to compare a poor place with a nice place.

It's so ridiculous that some people just can't accept that there are some folks that are happy as a clam living in California and have no desire to live in another state. If you prefer other places, that's fine. I feel very blessed to live here and is one of the major reasons why I'm happy in life.

PS: It's truly impossible for anybody to enjoy the Arctic-like waters of CA:

Negative. It's Crescent Bay and it's a public beach. If you to Trip Advisor, you see a lot of positive reviews from people all over the country.

You do realize that the overwhelming majority of coastline & beaches in California are publicly accessible. A truly beautiful thing about our state & something that differentiates us from the coastline on the East Coast and many parts of the world, where large swaths of land are privatized & owned by the wealthy.

The elite who are trying to block access to CA beaches are losing big time in the courts. Eventually any beach that is being blocked off here will be forced to become public. For example, a beach that had been private & off-limits for over 100 years in the Central Coast became publicly accessible last year.

Everyone at this point knows you don't live in CA and you def never been to their beaches.

Helpful tip for you -I prefer Coronado over PB(your pic) and you should have put a pic up of that beach as it's probably the nicest beach in all of CA.

Yes, the coastal commission is one of the best, if unfortunately likely the only one, CA Govt agencies.

Just want to chime into this post! I am looking at moving from NYC to California or Colorado. Ideally I would love California's beautiful weather but I also do love mountains. Northern California isn't even a thought to me, wayyyy too expensive. I am curious if California is really outrageously expensive everywhere...it looks like they pay higher than Colorado would so I'm not sure if the ratio of the cost of living vs the salary is that different.

Amen. If only we can reduce the bloated bureaucracy in other agencies, federal & state.

CCC is a beacon of light in a shroud of darkness.

We moved from CO and still have family there. Housing costs have exploded reaching all time highs in CO and are second only to CA in increases. There are many articles you can read on this. Here's one of them: How Colorado became one of the least affordable places to live in the U.S.

If you love the mountains and like things about Colorado, I would consider places like the Sierra foothill towns outside of Sacramento. Check out Auburn, Grass Valley and El Dorado Hills. I would rather live there than Denver because you get the mountains and so much more of what CA has to offer that CO never will have including access to beautiful beaches, redwood forests, Yosemite NP, the Bay Area, Death Valley, bordering the PNW, etc...
