But it's not just about events, California is dope (well, I loved San Francisco I should say). And the weather is sweet.
I've only been to SoCal and I wasn't a fan... But, I've heard NoCal is awesome.
Trust me, though... We (in Ohio and the midwest, in general) wish we had annual events like ACL and SXSW. The closest thing is Bonnaroo and that is about a 12-hour drive from Cleveland.
