Washington is great, and you should also check out Oregon. Public schools in America are funded by tax payer money. Portland is the big city in OR. Pretty much everywhere in Oregon is surrounded by trees. It is beautiful and very green. Eugene is also a great town in OR. It's much smaller than Portland, and is mainly centered around the college (University of Oregon). Be careful though, a lot of the outlying towns are very conservative, as opposed to the very liberal Portland and Eugene.

You should check out the Central Coast of California. Lots of amazing small cities along here like Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Luis Obispo, and even Santa Barbara (depends on your definition of central coast). Not extremely populated like you always hear about CA, but Santa Cruz and Monterey are pretty close to the bay area, and SLO and Santa Barbara are a drive-able distance to LA for anything youʻd need from a huge sprawling city. All these cities are great little beach cities, with the laid back CA lifestyle . I havent really noticed too much of the negative attitude thatʻs sometimes attached to californians. Some of these cities, Santa Barbara, in particular, might be a little on the pricey side, but $800,000 is a pretty solid chunk of change to find yourself a pretty solid little pad. I love the central coast, the essence of california scenery there, without all of the crowding. Of course weather is good year-round here, although monterey and santa cruz do get some pretty intense fog sometimes.

This pretty much sums it up:

i agree on the bay area, even the Central Coast of california. Carmel, Monterey, the Carmel Valley- gorgeous places, lots of culture, a five hour drive to Los Angeles and an hour and 45 or so to San Francisco. Being that those are two of the most culturally diverse and exciting cities in the US, you would be pretty much in the epicenter of alot of things.
I wouldn't recommend Los Angeles- i dont think anyone else has either. Tho as an Anglophile and someone who hopes to wind up in England, i gotta be thinking "THINK IT OVER"! (just kidding)
