Santa Barbara, CA. Again, never been there, but it looks pretty. I'm sensing a theme here - I like places where there are mountains close to the ocean!
Julian, CA. They have actual seasons there. And apples. I've never been there, but my grandparents loved to visit. That's good enough for me.
Oh, lovely Laguna...one of my first dates was a walk along your rocky shore. I certainly wouldn't mind living and working there!
La Quinta, CA. If I could find a job and live on the resort property itself I'd be the happiest camper ever. It's one of my favorite places on Earth.
