What should 22nd century California be like?

I'm writing a series of time travel novels. Since my first one is scheduled to be published in November, I've been debating what my next one should be. One idea I have is for a young woman in San Francisco or Los Angeles to find herself 100 years in the future (in 2110 or so), but I need some help imagining a realistic future.

I don't want 22nd century California to be a Twenty Minutes in the Future
scenario, but I would also like this to be a realistic future, without flying cars or faster-than-light space travel. I also want to avoid making this future world like Blade Runner
, since that has been done and done.
So, sc-fi loving MeFites: what do you think a realistic 22nd century California would look like? I welcome your ideas!
