California is well-known for its pleasant weather, coastal location, and wealth of natural beauty, all while maintaining vibrant cities. As a result of all of this, many well-known corporations want to set up shop there, and many people want to live there, both for job and to live in general.
Where else could you go snow skiing one day and surfing the next in January? The Pacific Ocean is named by its calmness, it is only seldom affected by storms that reach Mexico, and even then, it is simply humidity or rain.
The western states were supposed to be roughly the same size, but because California had gold and silver, it was allowed to determine its own boundaries (most of the other now western states were territories then).
California is home to both large and small tech companies, both of which are attracting more job applicants. Hollywood and a vibrant music business draw musicians from all over the world to the state. It has both public and private universities that are world-class. California has a robust agriculture economy, producing everything from almonds to wine. It has one of the greatest tourism sectors in the country, if not the entire globe (judging by how many international visitors we see every year). There is something for everyone, from Disneyland to movie studios, world-renowned museums, and several cruise lines that dock on our beach. These visitors may fall in love with the city they’ve visited and decide to relocate there.
If you have never visited, I strongly recommend you do and see it for yourself.
