What kinds of things exist or are featured in other states or regions of the country that you wish you had in the area where you currently live?

For me, I would have to say that living in New England, I am jealous of the South and Midwest for having lots of high speed U.S. divided highways where you can cruise for miles and miles at 65 mph. We don't really have any of that here in New England. Everything here is so compact, cramped, slow, curvy and full of intersections, traffic lights, etc.

I am totally jealous of westside LA's weather. It's hot at night here.

Moving from the East Coast to the PNW, I miss thunderstorms. I especially miss those dramatic black clouds rolling in on a humid summer afternoon.

I can't think of anything else. I love it here.

SoCal - Weather, cause honestly the climate in the Northeast sucks ass. So tired of snow
SoCal - Mexican food, cause the Mexican food in NYC is just okay
SoCal - Samoan and fiji cuisine
Texas and Florida - Proximity to South America, so it's much easier to fly to Bogota or Buenos Aires whenever you want

I like the West Coast's laid back attitude. Although traffic can be busy and hectic, it doesn't feel as tense and uptight as the East Coast. The scenery is beautiful too, especially along the California coast.

I miss Portland's extremely large food cart pods. The best Syracuse can do is have five or six food trucks park in the same lot for one day a week.

-The public transit options of D.C., Chicago or pretty much any other midsized to large city. You can drive pretty much anywhere you need to go in Columbus within 20-30 minutes so it's not crucial but I think it would greatly improve the city to have options other than the bus which can be painfully slow if you are making crosstown trips.

-Obviously the mild winters of South Florida and parts of Arizona. January and February can get quite gray here and when the holidays are over winter loses its appeal pretty quickly for me.

-Columbus could use a larger body of water whether it be a respectable river (The Olentangy is essentially a creek) or a lake. Although the Scioto Mile downtown has greatly improved the city's use of the river and is quite aesthetic.

NYC's public transit, and California's summer dry season (I hate the monsoon)

I wouldn't mind having a soft sand beach on the shores of clear water
