Wow. I did expect to see some lazy stereotypes when I opened this thread, but not quite so quickly.

PNW. Better scenery and weather. The cities are more uban and the wilderness is more wild. I also don't like the protestanty, baptisty culture that you get in the south. Oh, also better beer and more of it.

I just laughed at the foolishness. Old stereotypes die hard.

I personally prefer the culture in the west, and I hate the humidity and the bugs in the south.

As much as I'd rather not have to deal with PNW weather ever again, I'd take it in a heartbeat over living in the south ever again.

I don't like the fact that there's no culture in the PNW period, lol. Joking, but that leads to my answer.

The Cultures, and the Variety.

If we're including Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, and Tennessee? I don't see how it's close imo. I like to stay in the loop, stay on the go. Atlanta this weekend, and New Orleans the next.

I couldn't imagine just staying in Seattle and Portland for most of the year.

And yet I keep hearing about prayers before football games, people being asked about religion at work (anecdotally), and of course a lot of state policy that would never fly on the West Coast.

At the policy level, it doesn't matter that 40% or 45% don't vote that way, or that the core cities are more normal. They're not in power in those states, so a lot of disturbing religious-type stuff happens.

Pacific Northwest. I don't know why, but Seattle, which I used to visit on month long vacations annually, qlways gave me a very Texas/DFW vibe.

PNW due to the breathtaking beauty and cooler weather. And the Seahawks of course
But I wouldn't mind living in the southeast either.

You wouldn't, there are tons of wonderful cities and towns up and down the cascades and up and down the Oregon (and Washington) Coast. IMO it's the best Coastline in the country. I agree that the South offers more towns in general, and more midsized cities in particular, but being in the PNW doesn't just religate you to Portland and Seattle.

Plus again, NOLA aside, Seattle and Portland are better, more urban big cities than any of the other cities in the south (I'm not counting Miami as the south for the sake of argument). Take Atlanta, it's huge, but Portland has better Urban form and is more liveable.

On top of that if you like the outdoors, there is no comparison, the PNW blows the south out of the water with better parks, mountains, a more pristine environment and less people.
