20 Photos That Prove Rural Northern California Is The Best Place To Live

Let’s be honest, there is nothing like small town and rural communities here in Northern California. Even those of us who are from a city seem to want to escape to the great outdoors every chance we can get. Those of us lucky to be from these rural areas know there really is no place like home. The cool thing about Northern California is the variations in climate, making our rural areas some of the most interesting and unique places to live.
