Hmmm....I really love both, but if it's any indicator, I felt more "comfortable" in LA than in New York City. The East Coast have so many beautiful treasures too, be it cities/towns/suburbs, national parks, nature, culture, etc.

Now that I live in Alaska I'm pretty sure the North coast is the beat! Heheh

Less people, more outdoors, more wildlife, no traffic, no smog.
Technically that is the West lol

Very much true.

I'm from the West Coast, but I'm curious to try out the East Coast. There's a lot of things about it that appeal to me more, like the greener vegetation, more pronounced seasons and the diversity of the people.

Well, California has as much diversity as anywhere on the East Coast.

True. Although, one interesting trend is that the white population in CA is actually declining by about 100,000 per year now, for the past few years. Not sure what the explanation is for that.

It's also one reason people prefer the west. Sorry but your generalization is inaccurate and antagonistic. Yes, I prefer being around nature-minded folk who value opening their doors of perception over feeding their egos with material gratification.

Plenty of hippies have jobs and are functional individuals so.....

These are called hipsters, yuppies, or just educated people in general. I enjoy nature and having an open mind, but I'm not a hippie. I think hippies existed in the 60's and 70's.

No I wouldn't call them hipsters and definitely wouldn't call them yuppies haha. The individuals I'm thinking of, that is. They're hippies. But whatever, this is just semantics at this point.
