This should be first. San Francisco is awesome but sooo cold. Los Angeles has beaches... Nice weather... Celebs... Its great for show biz... It has awesome amusement parks and much more

What? L.A. is 2nd place in this list?...but if is the city of totally crime and shootouts between Pirus & Crips, this should be lower not higher!

Just Bad! Crips and Bloods are the kings of L.A.

Los Angeles is the heart of California!

2 San Francisco San Francisco, officially the City and County of San Francisco, is a city in, and the cultural, commercial, and financial center of, Northern California.

Great public transport and tons of tourist attractions, but traffic is atrocious, living prices are absolutely outrageous, and there's homeless people wherever you look.

It is the best best!

Go 49ers (and Giants)!

3 San Diego

Best weather ever, no smog, beautiful mountains, and really really safe!

This should be #1

4 Sacramento
5 San Jose
6 Fresno

Many people say Fresno is a trash city with dumb people, they are right. But I think it is a native thing, If you grow up in the Downtown or on the West Side than yes it is pretty crappy. But living anywhere else it is a fairly moderate city I would say. There is a bit more crime than a city our size should have and we do have a homeless problem, but other than that it is a cool city. Most people have a, "If you're cool with me, I'm cool with you." attitude. It is very diverse, having a large Hmong, Armenian, and Hispanic community. We are between San Francisco and L.A, so you hear slangs and see culture from both of those areas.

Honestly, there is not much to say about Fresno. The City has its Pros and Cons, but that kind of depends on where you are. It is a good place to visit, but you might want to think hard on whether you want to live here or not. I love the place and do not plan on leaving, but many people will understand why if you do not feel the way.

I live in Northern Fresno bear the golf area and let me tell you.. I love it.. You get a good view from the Sierra Nevada mountains and you can play golf any time.. Many mansions and big houses that you want to live in! If you live near downtown Fresno, you wouldn't like that area.. :(

7 Oakland Oakland is the largest city and the county seat of Alameda County, California, United States. A major West Coast port city, Oakland is the largest city in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area, the third largest city overall in the San Francisco Bay Area, the eighth most populated city in ...read more.
