Want To Move Out Of Orange County But Want To Find Something Similar Outside Of California?

I live in orange county california and love what it looks like, the scenery is great but I cant handle such a materialistic culture. I want to find somewhere in the US where it looks similar to orange county but has less influence on materialism. I don’t want to live in the city life but I also dont want to live in the middle of nowhere. I want to find a great place to raise my kids and somewhere that is green and beautiful. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Too bad to hear that you want to leave OC. It is a nice place to live, and I think its probably one of the best places aside from maybe Paris.
Anyway, in an attempt to answer your question, I would recommend you try looking at Hawaii. Particularly Oahu, near Waikiki or possibly Maui.
I’ve had the lucky pleasure of being able to visit Hawaii on business a few times this year, and it is one place I would forgo OC for. The people are nice (probably less materialistic), the beaches are even more beautiful than OC, and it does have a pretty similar feel as OC in terms of safety and activities it offers.
On the bad side, living in Hawaii is about 15% more expensive than living in OC. Especially, rent and food. Jobs are a bit scarce unless you’re in the military or tourism. And the killer, milk is $10 a gallon, so you better give up on your cereal cravings down there.
Aside from all the bad things Hawaii has, its really a spectacular place, and I really hope to move out of OC to live in Oahu one day or one phase out of my life.
Well, I wish you the best with the relocation, and hope to see you back in OC once you get to experienc other parts of the world!
