Should she move to California?
My friend, her husband, and 3 kids want to move to CA. They aren't sure where. She says they love the lifestyle, the beaches, and CA overall. I say it's very expensive, and there are all different lifestyles there just like anywhere else in the world. If you have lived there, what are your opinions. I only lived in San Francisco for 6 months, so I am not a good judge, except for what I've read or heard. She stays at home the kids and he's a self-employed personal trainer. I am interested in pro's and con's of moving to CA (from GA, if it matters).

The weather is good. Gets a bit hot in places but it doesn't snow unless you are in the mountains. Things are more expensive but people make higher salaries. I spent a year doing business trips all over the US and twice to Canada. The only place I would have liked to live was San Diego, CA.

I am born an raised in CA. I lived in the Bay Area for 5 years and moved back home to So Cal where I live now. California has everything you could want and more.
