California has a lot of traffic, higher taxes, lots of crime, and a poor public transport system that doesn’t work well. The cost of living is also high in California. These reasons make California an undesirable place to live for many people who are looking for a more productive life elsewhere.
Here is a list of ten reasons why people might think California sucks.
10 Reasons Of Why California Is An Undesirable Place
California is a popular place for people to live and visit. However, it is not a desirable place to live. There are many reasons why this state is undesirable.
1. First, let’s talk about the weather. It is very hot and dry in California. This makes it difficult for people to maintain a healthy lifestyle which can lead to a lot of health problems such as obesity and diabetes. The summers are also too long and it does not get cold enough in winters which can be very difficult for those who live there year-round (Snowbirds).
2. Traffic: The traffic in Los Angeles can be unbearable for some people driving in from other states or countries. Poor public transportation system is a major concern there.
3. Declining quality of life due to environmental problems. Californians have little or no work-life balance.
4. Taxes: The taxes in California are high compared to many other states. There has been an increase in taxes every year since 2012 which makes it difficult for many people living here on a budget to meet their monthly bills.
5. There’s too much government regulation in the state.
6. Too much crime and violence in the form of gang violence and armed robberies
7. It’s very expensive to live here in comparison to other places. The high cost of living has led many people to pack their bags and move out of state.
8. Gun violence is on the rise
9. Inadequate schools for education
9. Not so many jobs to pursue.
This argument contrasts with those who claim that “The Golden State” should stay true to its golden roots and maintain its innovative spirit despite the sometimes harsh reality that it is very hard for new businesses in the state to survive without government assistance.

Is Living In Texas Better Than California?
Different people may have different opinions on where they would like to live, but the answer is clear in this case – Texas is better than California.

With all these positive aspects, it’s no surprise that many people are moving from California to Texas and the number of Californians living there has been decreasing significantly.
Texas was established in 1845 with a population of approximately 100,000. By 1860, this number had grown by about 43% and reached 774,000 people. In 1900 it was 12 million people; by 1950 it was 23 million; by 2000 it was 35 million; by 2010 it was 45 million and today (June 2018) is 55 million people!
Some factors like climate and education may affect this decision, but we will use the average cost of living for each state to compare and contrast their quality of life.
