languages spoken in california

i'm hoping to move to california in about two years, i need to get away from my insane family on the east coast! at least, i've been interested in california as it seems very linguistically diverse. i was wondering, would any of you happen to know the most commonly spoken languages in california? does it differ in north CA (e.g. San Francisco) as compared to south? (e.g. San Diego)

i would still think chinese was top, but my friend disagrees and says vietnamese, yet another friend argues tagalog! so i wondering maybe all three of these are used very frequently?

and does chinese imply mandarin, or cantonese?
