11 Awkward Moments Every Northern Californian Has Endured At Least Once

No matter where you live, you’ve certainly encountered your fair share of uncomfortable situations. But here in Northern California we are subjected to a whole slew of unique instances that cause us to reel with awkwardness — here are 11 that seem to occur relatively frequently in the our neck of the woods.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

11. When you get choked up by these California Tourism Commercials…

(Okay, we know there are quite a lot of Southern California spots in this video, but the Northern Californian ones that are featured are spot on, wouldn’t you say? If only Northern California had its own department of tourism!) But for real, though, this is such a cool place to live and play!
