(not really)
east coast doesn't have any hills. we're talking about hills right on the ocean. the east coast doesn't have that.

i doubt there is anything like this on the east coast as this scenery can be found all the way from SD to Washington and up through Canada and down into Mexico.

all these pics i found on google:

sure its pretty nice in some areas on the WC, but look how much they have ruined the hillsides by building it up like that!

And to your original statement - ya, try to be a bit more friendly. But ya, we do have just a nice scenery, but you have to go inland a little

i do understand what your saying, but the immediate WC has more scenery than the immediate EC.

also, LA and SD and Vancouver are coastal cities and have mountains behind their skylines. i may be wrong, but i don't think there are any like that on the east coast.

your also right there. A few cities have hills behind them though - like New york



And one more thing - Don't get me wrong on the coast thing, I extremely like the West coast, it is very impressive, I like both coasts!

ya i understand what you mean that both coasts are great. the east coast has the denseness and the american culture while the west coast has more scenery on the direct coastline.

so what are those hills/mountains in the background on NYC. i don't think i've ever seen them before. no offense but that can't really compare to Vancouver, Seattle, or LA in the winter, although Manhattan alone doesn't need anything to make the skyline beautiful

West side for me. Big surprise, right? I've only lived here all of my life! I've been to the east coast before, and it has its own charm, but the west coast is awe-inspiring, beautiful, majestic, and so on. And it's "home".

The West for me, also. Those aren't comparable hills or mountains, but that is a wonderful picture of a city I don't even respect! Let's please keep the pics to a minimum on each post.
