Cali has Earthquakes.

Also, Houston rap > Cali rap as LA are hip-hop is the most overrated hip-hop ever. Bay Area shit is tight though.

Northern California is really great. Quite enjoyed my time out there.

Southern California (LA) was a miserable place, I thought. Too much traffic, the smog was flat-out disturbing, the mass of humanity is off-putting, I found it to have a very "cold" vibe despite the weather... Just not an enjoyable place to be.

Southern California is probably the worst when it comes to traffic. Maybe NYC has it worst but I've never been there.

California's biggest asset is probably its diversity though. Just about every section of the state has a majority whether it's asians, blacks, hispanics, and then whites.

Traffic is absolutely not an issue in NYC. You don't need a car to get around Manhattan very easily and efficiently. The public transit is fantastic. You can live a full, very happy life in Manhattan and never own a car.

The other Burroughs, I've always found, are pretty easy to get around in a car.

I've spent a lot of time in NYC and getting around is never an issue.

The only place I've been that compares to LA in terms of traffic is Washington D.C. and the surrounding suburbs. Even that doesn't even compare.

LA is a hellhole, imo.

There are some amazing places to live in California if you have money... but as a whole the State is falling apart.

It's not even close to that expensive, especially now that housing market has bottomed out. For 3 million I'll get you a 5 bed 4 bath mansion on 2 acres in some of the most desirable areas in the State.

High taxes and broke. For such a nice looking place the people sure do ruin it.

i'm from nor cal. like any place, there are good things and there are bad things, but when i weigh in what's important to me right now, the good outweighs the bad. but the term "best" is so subjective though. not everyone likes the same lifestyle. it's not for everybody obviously. only place i'd change my residence to is new york. but i'll confess to this - when i see some big ass mansions selling in other states for only a fraction of they cost here, sometimes i wonder about how it'd be like moving there and living like king. maybe when i'm retired or whatever.
