other than beachfront property ( for the rich) and better welfare benefits ( for the poor), Cali has nothing you can't find elsewhere , at far far more reasonable and appropriate prices.
as far as economics go, it's insane for a run of the mill middle class worker to live in Cali.
personally, I miss aspects of the culture... the beach/surfer culture, to be more specific.
that particular culture is unrecognizable in comparison to what it was 30-40 years ago.... but I still vacation there occasionally ( primarily Laguna beach)
Texas "beach culture" is non-existent... the beaches absolutely suck here ( in comparison), but everything else is much better.
