I love the West Coast, for its beauty and just overall feel. I guess I'm an Southerner. Even though I think Miami is more Caribbean than Southern. Dont like any of the other Southern states, think theyre horrible. Like the Northeast Coast. Mainly New York and Boston. Cant say anything about the Mid West, cause I've only ever been to Chicago. I dont think I could live that far away from an ocean though.. it was a bit depressing when I lived in Atlanta, and that was only 5 hours away from the coast!

Why is it when people in most of the country talk about regions, they conveniently leave out an entire region of the country--a HUGE, enormous region known as the Mountain West. People must have blinders on-- I hear about "west coast" all the time-- well whatever happened to the REAL west? The west full of snowcapped peaks, alpine meadows, hot desert valleys, red rocks, canyons, pine forests-- and booming cities. There are eight diverse western states that are certainly not "west coast": Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. This region includes booming cities, both large and small, like Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Phoenix, Tucson, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Reno, Albuquerque, Santa Fe. Some might also include El Paso, TX as well. Even most of California, Oregon and Washington are not really "west coast." Ever heard of Death Valley, Yosemite National Park, Sequoia? Those are some of the most scenic areas of California, and there's no "coast" there.

Why would anyone conviniently leave that out? I didnt purposely leave it out.. I guess when I say west coast I really just mean west. I include Arizona, Nevada, Utah and etc in that category, even though they arent on the coast. In my case, I think I do this because I havent really been out "west" much, only California and Arizona. So maybe others have fallen in that same habit because of similar reasons.

My comment was actually a reply to the original poster who started the region wars thread-- not you. But it's an interesting topic. The funny thing is, when people say "west coast," what they really mean 90% of the time is Los Angeles-- and sometimes San Francisco, or places like Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, etc. I guess the term could encompass Seattle and Portland as well-- those cities aren't technically on the Pacific coast-- but close enough, I guess. Yet, there are many people who throw on the title "coast" where it clearly doesn't belong-- like AZ, NV, or UT. Bless their hearts, but when it comes to geography, those people are just plain wrong. Now, yeah, we can debate whether to call these states The West, the Southwest, the Desert Southwest, the (inter)Mountain West, the Great Basin, "The Empty Quarter" (Joel Garreau's infamous name), "the Wild West"-- whatever-- just not "coast."

They are all great regions, and it's pointless to say which one is better. All are too different to be compared. Just appreciate having all these regions people and stop comparing them to each other like one is better than the other. Another region you left out here was the Great Plains (Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota)
