This blog is about seeing California at it’s best and leaving the rest
Welcome to SavvyCalifornia.com. California is a famously diverse state, with plenty of people, places and things to see. Still, the silly stereotypes just won’t quit (you know the ones). Some folks call this the “left coast” as a put-down, but the savvy among us consider it a term of endearment. The thing is, California clichés can be a little bit true. If you ask me…
That’s where the fun is!
Let’s look at it with a little levity, shall we? I’m cruisin’ the California coast, in a convertible wearing cliché-colored sunglasses, for a lighthearted look at all things:
Hippie Dippy, Indie Groovy, Veggie Yogi, Local Foodie, Artsy Fartsy, Eco Snooty, Beach Bummy, Surfer Dudley, Tree Huggy, Celebrity Crushy, Culture Quirky, Fruity Nutty, Wine Tipsy, Trail Trekky, Day Trippy, Bucket Listy.
I love exploring my home state, and I’m not alone. More than 70 percent of U.S. travelers who vacation in California are road trippin’ residents like me. We go to the big cities and sleepy small towns, the beaches, mountains and deserts, state parks and theme parks, wine country and farm country, new hot spots and old-growth forests.
Love California like I do?
Join me on a journey to map out the hella fun, awesome, gnarly, chill escapes–no hate–in the great Golden State.
PS. Layin’ on the lingo totally tongue in cheek, savvy?

About The Blogger
My greedy goal is to find the real stuff in life right outside our doors, to sleuth out the sweet spots, chat up experts, nail down the details, and share what’s great in the Golden State.
I live in a sleepy little beach town 25 miles south of San Francisco called Half Moon Bay, with my airline pilot husband Troy, and my office assistant Gracie (a total
terrorist terrier and terrific road tripper).
If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I started blogging in 2009 under then name “Bay Area On The Cheap” (during the financial crisis) and then founded sister site “Savvy SoCal.” Over time I rebranded to the more inclusive “Savvy Cities.” That was fun for a while, but I missed the local focus and felt scattered. So in 2016, I moved the California pages over here to SavvyCalifornia.com and put the rest on autopilot. Now I can once again express my west coast attitude, like the tagline says: Peace, Love & Levity on the Left Coast. Stay tuned and please tell your friends.
