#112561 - California
Me and the wife are planning to go live in the USA for a few years - specifically in California. I am retired so I don't need to live near where the work is. We like the quiet life but we don't want to be too far from the amenities. We have travelled through much of Northern California, Palo Alto, SF and Sant Rosa for example but not much south.

My question is where in California would you recommend we live?
