3. A Diverse Population
With Mexico to the south and a massive, inviting coastline to the west, California long attracted people from all over the world, making it the most diverse state in the country. You’ll find a wide range of people, languages, traditions, arts and music no matter where you live in California.
4. The Food Scene
It comes as no surprise that California often tops foodie-favorite state lists. California has a massive agricultural economy that produces half of all the fruits, nuts and vegetables grown in the U.S. Of course, California has also developed a wine culture that’s won global respect for the 100 different varietals grown there. Throw in LA’s food truck scene and San Francisco’s Mission burritos, and California is almost impossible to beat.
