Yosemite divided, the north gets San Francisco and Southern California will be home to the happiest place on Earth! How California's treasures will be divided in the three state plan

Where top landmarks would fall in Three California plan

California is a state blessed with a bountiful natural treasures and tourist attractions that brings in visitors from all over the world. But if the highly contested plan to divide the state into three goes ahead, then the newly created states of Northern California, California and Southern California will have to split those money making attractions between them. The new Northern California would include 40 counties, including Sacramento and San Jose as well as the state's Napa wine country, cannabis farms of Trinity and Mendocino counties, and rural northern areas. San Francisco, which boats the Golden Gate Bridge, iconic trams and seafront, would also be part of Northern California, as would Silicon Valley, home to countless tech companies and tech billionaires including Tim Draper, the billionaire venture capitalist who came up with the state-splitting idea in the first place.

This Cryptocurrency Billionaire Is Trying to Split California Into Three States

Tim Draper, the billionaire venture capitalist and legend in the world of cryptocurrency, has an idea: Let’s split California into three separate states.

There are at least five reasons why this idea is doomed from the start, but first, here’s his case

The way Draper sees it, smaller states would be run by more efficient and less bureaucratic governments as they compete for residents and business. Education, safety, infrastructure and health care would improve. Taxes would be lower. And the investor who made a name for himself funding tech giants like Hotmail, Skype and Tesla Inc. says he “won’t have to think anymore about moving myself, Draper Associates, the Draper Venture Network and Draper University out of California.”
