We often hear about NorCal and SoCal, but where does Southern California stop and Northern California start?

It turns out there's no official definition! Most people use cultural or geographic ones.

SoCal is known for laid-back, beach vibes and for the entertainment industry.

NorCal is known for tech, redwood forests, and the rugged landscape of the Bay Area

Some people use the Tehachapi Mountains or 36th Parallel as geographic dividing lines

I think the best definition, though, is the Northern California Megaregion.
