Those of us from California tend to specify which area of the state we’re from. We’re either from NorCal or SoCal, maybe even the Central Coast. Growing up in Santa Cruz, our location is always debatable as to whether we fit into Northern California or the Central Coast.
Personally, I’ve always thought my hometown leans much more towards Northern California, at least in terms of the culture and the people. Not to mention, when I think of Northern California, I have an overwhelming feeling of home.
