Things to Consider Before Moving to California

California has become one of the most popular destinations to live in the United States, and there’s no wonder, with its wine country, surf culture, beautiful views and dramatic national parks. It is a location filled with opportunities for students and business professionals alike. If you are thinking of moving to California, here are some of the most important things you should consider first.

You will need transport

California is one of the largest places in the United States. While there are many places you can access by foot or public transport, you are more than likely going to need your own transport to commute to work and to go on adventures in your spare time.


If you enjoy hot and sunny weather, then California is the place for you. Boasting a Mediterranean climate, you can expect very warm and dry summer months and only experience a mild winter. California also experiences droughts.

If you are not keen on hot weather, then you may need to consider a different location.

Cost of living

California is one of the best places to invest in property, however, it comes with a high price tag. Prices are higher than other states due to its size and population, but also because of its initiatives to combat environmental concerns and reduce carbon emissions.

Depending on where you choose to reside, these factors may vary. For instance, Sub-Zero fridges in Sacramento may cost less than in Los Angeles, which is a much more expensive bug city. Below is a helpful infographic that can help you decide on the best area to live in California before you move there.
