My parents moved here from Idaho in 1955. (I was 2 years old). Been here ever since. Why would I move anywhere else? I've traveled the world and there are many wonderful place, but I am always glad to come back home to California.

I was born in Burbank, CA in 1959. I've lived in Southern California my entire life except for the 4 months that I went to grad school in Boston (I loved it!), but my heart (my fiance) was in Cali so I transferred.

So....50 years!

Born in West Los Angeles in 1941, moved to Anchorage, Alaska in 1965, had two children there, moved to Portland, Oregon in 1975 and finally returned to California - Santa Barbara, in 2003. Love where I live and they will have to drag me out of here! This is absolutely paradise, but expensive!

Jazzuntouched- I think you just captured why so many of us love California. I have lived in Florida, Mississipi, Virgina and Arizona. Visited Oklahoma, Nevada, Oregon, and driven through many more. There simply is nowhere I'd rather be than California

I have lived in California 47 yrs,Born in the Republic of Berkeley!LOL. Minus a few Months that I lived in texas. I hurried up and came back!LOL I love california, nowhere else can you pass through a tunnel and come out on the other side in a whole different micro-climate. Nowhere else do you need to at least take a sweater and maybe a coat Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall especially in the evenings. Nowhere else can you go from Snow to 90 inside of a couple of hours ride down I80 or I5. Can you tell I am a Cali Girl.

I have lived in California for about 45 years. I was born in Ohio. My mom sat me on a plane (by myself) when I was 5 and I flew to North Hollywood to my grandparents. My mom came later by car. That plane trip was the most wonderful experience. We lived in the Los Angeles area for about 7 years and then moved north to Modesto after the 1971 earthquake. Been in Modesto ever since. Wish I lived in Santa Barbara!

I was born in Fairfield, CA in 1971 and have lived in Vacaville my whole life. Commuted to Davis for college and now I commute there for work - but love my area of California!

Hi TizzieBell! I'm here in Davis during the week - work at UCD. I usually just do my exercise bike during lunch but if you're ever looking for a workout buddy during the noon hour - I can mix up my workout!

Started Spark April 14, 2009.

I was born in Sacramento, CA in 1961 where I lived until I got married in 1983. I moved a whole whopping 22 miles away to Davis, CA. I am definitely a native to CA. I love it and the town I currently live. It is like the "land of Oz".

If there is anyone around my area that would like to be a sparkbuddy, I think it would be great to make that connection with someone local.

I'm a Canadian, my wife is from Idaho. We moved to N.CA just south of Eureka in 1989 and been here since. I love it here; nice temperate climate, hardly ever snows which is fine with me,yah!! Anybody asks where I would like to be and I respond, right here at home.I worked here for 13 years, now retired and enjoying it.

I moved to San Jose in 1980 and I've lived in California ever since. In 1998 I moved to Hayward which is about 30 miles south of San Francisco and 30 miles north of San Jose. Beautiful scenery. I can look to the east and see the hills and sometimes in the winter I can actually see snow just enough to admire the beauty but also far enough away that I don't have to worry about the cold.

I'm very new to California. Moved here June 1, 2009, because my husband is in the military. So, far im not liking it at all. I'm from Atlanta, GA. And i'm really just not digging California, everyone says its because I live in Tracy, and dont know anyone here. But cant wait til his tour time is up to go back on the eastside.

I came here from Florida, where I had lived for 13 years. I didn't like the humidity. In July 1990, my Aunt in Ventura invited me to come out to visit. She picked me up from LAX in her convertible and we headed down PCH. Ocean on one side, beautiful hills on the other...it was instant love! I moved here 2 months later with my cats from Pinellas Park FL. I left behind my Dad and other family, and that's been difficult, but I love it here. The only thing besides family that I miss about FL is the gulf of Mexico, the water was very warm. Two kids now, and we live in Santa Maria.
