Yeah yeah mountains, yadda yadda yadda. Overall I find the east more beautiful. Sure it has nothing as rugged as Glacier National Park but the reality is 70 percent of the West is desert and scrub. Overall I find back east more consistently beautiful.

No, even though I live in PA, I think the west is much more beautiful. Not even close.

I've only been to New York, and that doesn't count for all of the Eastern part of this country, so I will speak on behalf of just NY. I live in CA, so I will speak on behalf of CA. No way is New York more beautiful than California.

I wouldn't go that far, but this is what I would say: when you drive towards the Appalachians and you see these mountains covered in green, head to toe, you get a kind of beauty you won't find in the Rockies or the Appalachians. The west is dry (and getting drier); the beauty of the region is spectacular, but it is far less green than the east.

No.

The West is so much better than the East in terms of beauty, weather, and "feel". It's not even close.

Not only that but in the West there are many places where you can change your scenery pretty quick. In Southwrn California the ocean, mountains, and desert can be done in a day.

And PA is probably one of the prettiest states east of the Rockies too.

I'm just not as impressed by mountains as most people. I like them, but I also like greenery and open spaces.

PA is very pretty but I actually think NC is the prettiest state on the east coast.

To the OP, I think both coasts are beautiful but the California coastline is really something else, it is, IMO, the prettiest coast in the entire world.

When I lived out west I got used to the landscape and loved it after a while. I appreciate it now. But for me personally I prefer the dense vegetation of the east. Mountains are pretty but kind of a pain in the butt if you need to get around them. But i'm that guy who could live year round in 90 degree weather, with 90% humidity and 100% cloudiness. The relentless sunshine of the west got to me after a while.

I've only been to NC a few times but having the ocean could give it the nod over PA. I hear Maine is nice although I've never been there.

The California coast is amazing. I see it every day.

Greenery is overrated to me. Green means water which means humidity. Just the thought of that East Coast humidity makes my stomach churn.
