I'd like to assert the following fact: California/West Coast is better in every way than the east coast or any state along the eastern seaboard.

    My statement is not based on opinion, rather it is complete and utter truth and anyone that wishes to dispute this fact is a fucking moron.

    The lifestyle is better. More tolerant, more diverse, both geographically and ethnically, more laid-back, less-pretentious. Also, better ...more consistent weather.

    If the US was not founded on the east coast-- I believe not many people would live there today. It's ugly.

    I was born and raised on the east coast, so I'm not being biased in anyway. Just came to this conclusion.... After spending the past 2 months back and forth to the east coast-- I have grown to loathe going back.

    This Fall I've been to Boston, NYC, Philly, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Miami, Jacksonville and many small towns throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, etc. . . And I can say with confidence---not ONE of these places is even nearly as physically beautiful as the west coast.

    After living in California for exactly one year this month, I am dumping my roots on the east coast and am now officially Californian.

    I'm sure a lot of bitches on the east coast wil talk about earthquakes or wildfires, but please.... that shit dont affect people like me. East coast has been dealing with a hurricane 2 weeks ago.....noreaster last week.....cold ass fucking winter ahead of yall. Have fun with that....and FL may not have a cold ass winter ahead, but yall still are connected with Jacksonville....and that's embarrassing enough. And FL can have their ghetto mentaility that is so prevalent in south fla.

    cheers. Glad to be out.

    I've never been to the East Coast, but i love So Cal.
    The weather is balanced, not too cold, rarely too hot, the beaches are great, lots of cities, and stuff to do, and mountains and nature too.

    There are also plenty of events here for sportsmen, and gamers alike. I love that every summer there are so many conventions, and events all over the So. Cal area.

    I hate Southern California. Ugly landscape, lack of seasons, not enough culture and too much cosmetic surgery. SF and north are fine, though.

    You are absolutely, without-a-doubt, indefinitely, infinitely, and what are we talking about again?

    Oh yeah. Texas A&M beat U. of Alabama, hooray!

    Yep. Have lived in the SF East Bay since 1973. Grew up in the mid-west. Teen years in Florida (east coast), college years in Chicago and then Milwaukee. COLD mofo cities in the winter and hot in the summer.

    Love it here. Ocean, mountains, redwoods, all within easy driving. The social environment is very liberal with lots of diversity. The biggest downside is the cost of living but it isn't quite as bad as New York or most of the east coast.

    And, of course, there is the RJ meet-up happening a week from tonight icon_smile.gif

    the east coast has its charms, but yeah, if nyc fell off the map, it would be as popular as the midwest without chicago.

    After only a year in Cali, you are still a transplant not a Californian! Haha!

    The east coast is soooo vastly different from California that this thread is comparing apples to oranges. Southern California has its charms, lacks culture. East Coast has great cities, seasons, culture, and some of the most obnoxious people this country has to offer (Don't get me started, I have a right to say this after all of my experiences). San Francisco is probably the greatest city in America after New York. Personally I love this country for its many benefits and commodities, but I feel like the U.S. will not be my residence 10 years down the road.

    I am glad you are happy here icon_smile.gif

    Hey I've lived in a suburb of Detroit my whole life. So ANY of the aforementioned places on this forum are far superior lol. Don't get me wrong, visually Michigan as a whole is a gorgeous state, and I love four seasons. but the Detroit area lacks interesting people, has a rough economy, and isn't exactly the most gay-friendly state.

    let me start by saying that san diego is probably my favorite place in the u.s, i lived in miami and hated florida. Lifestyle, culture cali is on point- however, it is financially fucked and businesses are leaving california in droves.

    Never been to the Pacific Coast, but do love the Gulf and Atlantic Coasts. I won't hate on the Pacific in my ignorance of it.

    Aw, don't be so hard on yourself. I've seen some wonderfully interesting folks from Detroit on "Hardcore Pawn" and "Parking Wars."

    Haha..cow death camp. That made me laugh.

    Welcome to California and making this your home. Born and raised in So. Cal and have never found another state or city anywhere that I'd rather live.
