About This Quiz

There is more to California than just the differences between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The state is huge, with many distinct geographical and cultural regions. Sure, the big cities on the coast have most of the population and get most of the attention from the rest of the world, but what about the rural aspects of Northern and Southern California? In this quiz, we'll differentiate north and south, along with downtown areas versus the boondocks.

You may already have a pretty clear picture of the stereotypical aspects of life in the urban centers of California, but do you have a sense of what life is like in the countryside? For example, the northeastern parts of The Golden State consist of a mix of ranches and farms as far as the eye can see. In these spots, you're likely to hear complaints about the overreach of the government, especially when it comes to land usage and grazing rights.

The southeastern portion of the state is mostly desert, but this doesn't mean that there isn't a thriving culture here too. Consisting primarily of a seasonal influx of retirees and ATV enthusiasts, the winters in these wide-open spaces are covered by RVs that are outfitted with solar panels and filled with snowbirds from Canada and the northern U.S. states.

While the gold rush may be over in California, you might just have a eureka moment ahead of you with the result you're about to get.
