west coast.

outside of bos/wash corridor and particularly nyc... the west coast cities can match any on the east coast, and offer something definitely different, though I do enjoy boston/philly/new england as well. I prefer everything else on the west coast too, weather, outdoors activities.
I grew up 20 years in florida...

unless you have ties to east coast, or need to be in nyc/dc for instance (which definitely many do), i'd probably advice most people to head west.

The one thing that sucks about city vs. city or this vs. that is that you have to fall in line for one over the other, when more often than not, I like something about both sides or cities or regions. I live in the west and I love it, will probably never move east but of course would never rule it out altogether. I just know that I would always return to the west.
With that being said though, I love going back east to visit. There is truly no city like NYC, anyone that tries to deny it that, I can't understand. The history buff in me loves the colonial architecture of a city like Boston and Philly as well as numerous beautiful small towns throughout New England. My sister lived in a beautiful small town in Mass called Newburyport. I went to visit and fell in love with New England. I must say I am more of a fan of New York City and places north than I am of NJ and south to Bal/Wash.
I love the west for too many reasons to mention but mostly it's due to the awe inspiring power of the nature that is everywhere. In the west you are never far from being reminded how small you are compared to everything, whether that's space, mountains, deserts or coast. It puts you and everything else in your life in perspective. I love that.

the only thing that I agree with is that there is better weather other than that no way

As a surfer and year round outdoors guy..it's a pretty easy choice West Coast..big waves...way better coastline..typically better sunshine along the California Coast.. Having lived all over on both coasts it was more than an an easy choice for me..

Is it just me or are we not comparing anything here but weather and geography? Can someone give a good comparison based on every category since the question is which region is OVERALL better? I just want to see how they stack up since I haven't been to the West Coast.
