People got so hung up on the use of the terms "south coast" and "north coast" but the range of territory was clearly defined by the OP so regardless of terminology, these areas are the ones up for discussion in this particular thread. Doesn't seem like a big deal to me. Having said that...

The East Coast has the best cities by far, and there's no serious competition in any other region in my opinion. However I prefer the weather and scenery in the South Coast and those things are important to me so I voted for South, and I yes I live here. People are kind of nice down here too. But the East was a close 2nd.

The North Coast has some redeeming qualities, I did live there for years out of necessity. The West Coast is the worst overall to me. Too liberal and secular.

Well, the West and South have the best coasts, which I feel should be of big importance. More so I personally enjoy the temperature of the South Atlantic over the frigidness of the West Coast Pacific. So Iíll go South Coast. It helps I think Charleston is my perfect beach town.

By your definition, East Coast. I nearly like every city listed there. With the other coasts, I only like a good 2-3 cities from it.

Cool Opinion from someone who has lived in all 4 "Coasts"

I have lived several places in all 4 "Coast" areas - DC, NY & CT East Coast; FL and NOLA South Coast; Chi North Coast and SD, SF and SEA West Coast. I have lived the most time in west area and least in the south but lived at least 4 years in each coast area (yes, I moved a bit). They all have good and bad points but many are ranking based on perceptions with little real experience.

Rank depends on what you consider "best" and "worst" criteria. This does not mean that there are not exceptions in each region. If I rank my opinion on the best - weather and lifestyle, west coast, if on culture and well being, east coast, if on cost of living/taxes, congestion (lack of), regulations and beaches, south coast, if on family, north coast. If rank on worst criteria - weather and beaches, north coast, if on worst culture and health care, south coast, if on worst cost of living/taxes, regulations and congestion, east and west coasts.

If I ranked on where I would most want to live/retire - I would probably rank them 4. North, 3. East, 2. West, 1. South.

Yes, please, everyone go to the west coast. That's where you want to go, ha ha! Pile it on, fill it up, crowd it up. Save my favorite coast from transplant fever!

I wonder if Southern cities on the Atlantic like Charleston would count as East Coast or South Coast cause here in the poll they include Jacksonville and Miami as South Coast.

For me the Gulf coast is amazing especially the Florida Panhandle. However I do admit that the beaches close to the mouth of the Mississippi River like Biloxi, Grand Isle, and Holly Beach are quite brown and unattractive. Major reason why Biloxi and Gulfport adopted casino gambling to retain tourists after the construction of major highways made Pensacola and Fort Walton Beach and easy drive from New Orleans.

In terms of culture, religion and politics I fit in best here among the four coasts. The actual Gulf Coast area is heavily Catholic, though but I live in an area in South Louisiana that is more mixed vs predominantly Catholic though the Catholic influence is clear in the social liberalism here. For example we have those casinos and its quite easy to buy alcohol on Sundays unlike in most of the nation.
