just a little background info, i live in NY now, but have lived in multiple areas including TX, KY, NY, CA, NC and IL.

the only area i have never been to at all is the northwest region. im particularly interested in western oregon/western washington. seems like it would be good as i like cooler weather most of the time but i really don't want much snow.

any good videos or youtube videos/documentaries that i could watch that would show me what life is like living up in that area.

i would have a job as my employer has businesses in both and i could transfer to pretty much the major cities (eugene, salem, portland, seattle, everett etc)

Default Oregon is great

You can find almost any kind of weather to live in and the city cultures vary greatly. There is never any harsh weather. We don't get much snow either. Personally I live in Salem Oregon. I love it here. Its very green and the summers are spectacular. It's an hour from Portland, an hour from the coast and an hour from the mountains. It's also 3 hours from Bend which is a popular outdoorsy place and 4 hours from Seattle. It's not a big city but not a small city either. Here is a pretty good video of Salem,
