Moving to California?

So you’ve decided to head west to California! Whether you’re relocating to the sunny beaches of SoCal or the redwood forests of Northern Cali, you’ve made a great choice. California has so much to offer -- an outdoorsy lifestyle, near-perfect weather, and just about everything under the (literal) sun you can think of. While the Hollywood hills and their movie stars and undoubtedly a big draw, you’ll find plenty to love in The Golden State outside the bright lights, too.

It’s important to be aware that California is expensive. Expect your housing dollar to go much less far that in would in other areas of the country. And be prepared to spend a lot of time in the car -- Cali culture is very much car culture. In exchange for the sticker shock and the gridlock, though, you’ll find an easygoing lifestyle with a lot to enjoy.
