It feels very Targaryen-esque Storm's End Baratheon to me.

It's pretty; so are a lot of other regions of the country.
Welcome to the GENERAL U.S. forum, BTW.

The PNW gives me a log cabin feeling, idk why. The scenery reminds me of whistling music.

We have a New Zealand-like variety of climates and life. In some states the ratio of rainy to dry is probably 0.9-1.0. Here's it's 10-1 or something like that.

The PNW can still be magical. But, to offer a serious view here, the area is changing (or to rephrase) has always been changing. You can be in downtown Seattle is a maze of urbanity and drive literally for 30 minutes east and be in wilderness. Whether one considers that to be "magical" is in the eye of the beholder. On one hand, this is one of the great attractions of bigger cities like Seattle and Portland...they are still close to wilderness. On the other hand, the suburban sprawl, traffic, etc. continues to grow. Real Estate prices (though starting to stabilize), have been less than magical for newcomers. While the area continues to be mostly unaffordable for most, there are signs that prices are leveling off. That would be "magical" for newcomers, not so much for owners.

It's very pretty. I lived there for decades but as far as magical I would have to say the Appalachian Mountain territory does it for me.

Thanks for the answers guys.

Yeah but like most bigfoot sightings are there.
Seems to be a lot of Live Action Role Playing (LARP)
Also probably the highest concentration of hippies (maybe Austin is up there).

I don't mean that it is pretty...it just seems to have a mystical feel. Like the forests could have elves and fairies and stuff.

You just don't feel that in the LA of San Diego forests
