I don't know, but it just seems that the West Coast is the place to be. It's like the epicenter of the US. I can never fathom on living in New York. It just seems too far.

It's all relative. East Coast is home and familiar for me, but I could still imagine myself living in California for a while.

Im not uncomfortable living in the East Coast, but I definitely prefer the West by a very wide margin.

I don't think that's a correct usage of the word "epicenter", lol. An epicenter is a point on the earth's surface above where an earthquake took place. So, the West Coast COULD be the epicenter of possible earthquakes in the US--and hey--it probably is!--but not the epicenter OF the US itself. That just doesn't make any sense.

East Coast is home to me, too. I'd like to visit California--I've gotten as far west as Las Vegas, but never California. I'd love to see some of that beautiful scenery. People I know who have traveled to CA always complain that the food isn't as good as it is here, but how awful could it be? I could deal with boring food in exchange for the scenery.

Yup I feel like I'm at the center of the world here in LA, but also open to other areas

Haha- I knew this thread was bound to emerge after that identical eye-rolling thread from the East coaster...

There are some days when I think I could never live anywhere other than the west coast simply because I cannot tolerate mosquitos. I dealt with them in one foreign locale and they are simply the bane of my existence, thank god we do not have them out west.

I see there's a Great Lakes one, now, too.
