As far as what kind of snakes are near you... there are many. Some of my favorites in your area are california kingsnakes, rosy boas, rubber boas, and California Mountain Kingsnakes. Each of these species required different hunting methods. If you are new to viewing snakes in the wild, I would suggest road cruising along roads that have little traffic in the early evening hours. When daytime highs get into the upper 80s to 90s, you should find plenty of critters along roadways if you drive slowly and keep an eye out for them. Like I mentioned before, be careful of other drivers on the road both for your sake and the sake of whatever animals you may find crossing the roads. Before attempting to find snakes, I would recommend contacting the Fish and Game department as you will likely have to purchase a fishing license in order to view or take the snakes. Also, there are some species which are illegal to collect and some which are only legal to collect in certain areas. Make sure to find out which areas are legal to search for reptiles, as national monuments and wildlife refuges are usually off limits. Hope this helps. The rest is up to you. That is how I started. You can find the critters in other ways, but for starters, road cruising is a good introduction.
