Live/Work in Nevada, visit California?

I am a consultant currently in California, but have been tossing around the idea of moving to Nevada, becoming resident of, and doing my work from there.
Why would someone want to work in California if they don't need to? If they don't have to commute, they could trade the time of the typical daily commute and make a drive to and from somewhere like Vegas every weekend if they needed some San Diego fun.
Is this an objectively wise decision since 80% of my time during the week is not enjoying surf and Mexican food? Am I missing something? I feel like I am in the prime of my career in a unpredictable market where I should be maximizing savings/lowering cost - and California state income tax to me seems like a luxury cost that I shouldn't be indulging in until I'm older or more successful.
