Oh... and Washington is listed as #4.

John,

California can use good press, and although I love our state, I would not be surprised regardless of what they say if PR $$$were not involved.  This is known as a puff piece in the biz.  Fun is in the eyes of the beholder.  A

#8 - Pennsylvania makes the Top 10.  
East side - Nice tribute to the roots of America's founding fathers in historic Philadelphia preserving sites around Liberty Bell, the Constitution, Independence Hall for site see-ers for generations to come.  Highly rated vacation site for families.  No, Philly is not part of my market :))
West side - Pittsburgh has been ranking high in best affordable places to live in recent years.

I totally dig the comment by Candice A. Donofrio.   It's cute and has a wee-bit of wisdom.

If you're not enjoying your state, perhaps it has less to do with where you hang your hat, and more to do with the wearer of the hat.
