On this special 2 part episode of Bye Bye OC, we’ll cover the top 5 most popular destinations for Californians moving out of state. We go in reverse order, so we start with numbers 4 & 5 and we also touch on a special mention that didn’t make the list. We all have different reasons for relocating so we’ll go through the differences from state-to-state. Some locations are similar to California and most of the top 5 spots are on the west coast which could make it easier to make the move. The list of the 5 most popular states Californians are moving to comes from the latest US census bureau's annual community survey and it uses 2019 stats. Numbers 4 & 5 of the most popular states for Californians to move to are; number 5, Oregon and number 4, Nevada. We’ll go over the cost of living from state to state, weather, tax rates, things to do and wildlife. We are joined by special guest Micheal Wasick. He is a full time real estate agent who works within Boise and the surrounding areas. He is a former Californian and made the move himself from Long Beach, California to Idaho. Although Idaho didn’t make it into the top 5 destinations, it is still a very popular choice for Californians moving away.
