You are about 1.5 hours from San Francisco, about 2 hours to warmer beaches in Santa Cruz. About 2 hours also from Monterey/Carmel. We are also about 45-60 mins to the warm lakes. Snow in Lake Tahoe about 1.5 hours, Reno about 2 hours. In short, we are centrally located to everything, yet affordable. What I like aboiut the area is that this is "palm trees and swimming pool weather". I am from the central coast and it does get VERY COLD there...now I float in my warm pool enjoying my tropical waterfall and palm trees!
