Good points, both are great cities, but in different ways....

For me, it's just that neither is LA, SF, Boston, or Honolulu.

Chicago, NYC, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Phoenix, etc etc would be above both on my list as well.

Seattle and Philly are so extremely different, I can't even begin to compare.

Edit: well, I guess I did begin to compare, in my next post. :^)

Seattle: politest big city in the USA, Philly the rudest. (Much prefer Seattle here)
Philly climate: continental, more extreme temperatures, much more sun than mild wet Seattle (Much prefer Philly here)
Seattle: mountains everywhere, Philly area almost flat in comparison. (Much prefer Seattle)
Philly food: much better in my opinion. I so love the Philly area Italian-American cuisine.

Just a few reasons why I say they are about as opposite as you can get.

Exactly!

Too much rain in Sea and too cold in philly

no oil and gas jobs in either

nice views in Sea when its clear enough to see Rainer and the mountain ranges, Philly is too old.

No to mention not enough BBQ, TexMex and other quality of life necessities...

Houston has the fine arts to blow both away although Philly symphony is good.

Disfunctional work rules as experienced near Philly and Sea is too far from family and other places that matter...(can fly to much of central America from here quicker than to Sea).

They arent very diverse either so boring culturally.

Philadelphia. Seattle is only for social misfits and ugly women.

The only problem with living in Houston is living in Houston.

I'm sure you've spent a lot of time in Seattle and know many people, hmm maybe not, but if you do, somehow the "misfits" were attracted to you?

And you must be homo if you think the women are ugly
