America is too enormous to really categorize easily but the coasts are totally different in the southern regions from the northern and mid atlantic beaches and there is a huge difference out west as well as between the southern californian beaches and northern california/pacific northwest coast. The south tends to have white or soft brown sand beaches and warmer water than the pacific ( the gulf coast can feel like the caribbean with very white sand and azure water in many places) but the south doesnt have the mountains so close to the coast that makes the southern california coast so spectacular. California would remind you alot of certain parts of Italy. I like sailing the atlantic because you are closer to the islands and the caribbean but both coasts have their advantages.

I have sailed near seattle and the puget sound has cold water usually but spectacular scenery, really beautiful place to sail

Care to elaborate or just plan on utilizing that witty middle school verbiage?

What a well thought out, and informative post. I guess the many millions that don't live on the West coast, might disagree.

If I had to rank, in a general way.

1. West Coast

2. East Coast

3. South

4. Midwest

Honestly each coast is pretty different.

Moving from somewhere like the mid west to say a small town in Texas, you'll have culture shock. Then west coast is usually more laid back then any other coast.

If I had to rank :
1. West coast
2. East coast (if I'm including florida)
3. Midwest
4. South

But this question is so general it's hard to answer. Are you looking to move here? What type of employment? Age?

5 ( 6 if you include maryland but I think ocean city at least would be mid atlantic or northeast) states in the south would be considered east coast, I would put maryland, new jersey and delaware in the mid atlantic for eastern coastal regions. The "east coast" and "the south" doesnt make any sense

The regions, especially for coasts, should be west coast, mountain west, southwest,gulf coast, midwest, southeast, mid atlantic and northeast

West Coast--We just say they are different and don't take them too seriously.

West--Enjoy their beautiful country and leave the rest of us alone.

North East Coast--Think they rule the world and that could be true.

South--The most intelligent people in the country and hope the other areas don't end up realizing we have the best life.

Sorry, OP, that the answers pretty much suck. Since you haven't posted more than this post, though, people might not be so inclined to take the time to go into detail. Your question is pretty vague, and as someone previously said, you need to "elaborate." Otherwise, you're just going to get random, biased comments from "homers."
