What is Northern California known for?
Similarly one may ask, what is NorCal known for?
Often called a foodie heaven, NorCal is the birthplace of the farm-to-table movement, home of wine country, and the location of four of the US's 12 three Michelin-star restaurants. SoCal, on the other hand, has great tasting and authentic Mexican food, as it's much closer to the Mexican border.
Secondly, is north or south California better? NorCal is a much larger land mass than SoCal and therefore has a lot more geographical diversity, so it has a bit of an advantage there. NorCal has Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Napa Valley, Carmel/Monterey, and the Redwoods. SoCal has Big Bear, Laguna Beach, Temecula wine country, and the deserts.
