About This Quiz

While most people that were born in California are proud to call their state home, there has always been a bit of a competition between those who are from Southern California and those who live in Northern California. In fact, at times it seems that the only thing the two can agree on is they don't like it when people call California "Cali." That is a definite no-no for a California native. 

Can we tell if you're from NorCal or SoCal? Are you used to incredible cuisine, much of it farm to table, or are you more used to eating amazing Mexican food? Are you more known for distinct architecture and Silicon Valley, or do you like to kick around on some amazing beaches? Do you have a decent public transportation system, or do you not even know what one of those is? Are you down with having some cool weather on occasion or do you like things to be ridiculously hot? And probably most importantly, how often do you say "hella" in general conversation? We know that it won't be easy, but we think we can guess whether you're from NorCal or SoCal faster than you can order a Double-Double at In-N-Out. Take this quiz to see if we are right.
