I have never been to Seattle but Boston seems to be the best fit. Both cites are on the i-90 corridor, both are the northern-most major cities on each perspective coast, both have nationally well-known chains (Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks), and both are well-educated. Raleigh would be my 2nd choice being that It's very educated, both roughly around 60 percent white, tech-oriented, lots of young-adults moving in.

Re:mwalker96’s post above: Boston is even more expensive than Seattle. If your looking for better cost of living, then I wouldn’t consider it.

I love it when these almost ten year old threads get renewed.

And how actually not much has changed. I will agree that both Boston and Pittsburgh are somewhat similar to Seattle, as they both are college areas, (Boston, of course, more-so). All cities have somewhat mild summers and don't get a huge amount of snow, though I think Boston is more uncomfortable during summer. Pittsburgh has just about the same amount of cloud cover on a yearly average. Also, Pittsburgh's hills are somewhat reminiscent of Seattle, and Boston has a strong liberal lean, as does Seattle. All have strong downtowns, but Seattle's is definitely the most impressive here in early 2019.

Seattle does not have a stringer downtown than Boston

I didn't say "stronger", which I assmume you meant, I said "more impressive". Big difference.

Atlanta, Dallas and Houston are diverse and affordable. That's your best bet.

But the original question is "what east coast cities are most similar to Seattle".

Boston has more in common with Seattle than other cities on the east coast. Certainly, New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington don't have as much in common.

Yes, Boston and Seattle have many differences, but many similarities. The two have an educated population, a working waterfront, are mostly caucasian, liberal, a maritime atmosphere and climate, and are quite close in city population, while Boston is somewhat larger in the MSA.

I think it does make more than "zero sense".

New York has a harbor. So does Baltimore and Miami. They're waterfront.

Liberal =/= left, and Seattle is far more left than Boston is politically, socially, economically, etc.

A ton of reaching going on.

Someone said Starbucks and Dunkin'? Are we really serious here?
I think you are parsing this beyond what is needed.

Seattle is liberal, so is Boston.

Seattle is educated, so is Boston.

Seattle has a maritime/oceanic climate, so does Boston, sort of.

No reaching here...just answering the OP's question.

And Starbucks vs. Dunkin is meaningless.

I answered the OP's question. Can you offer another answer, other than mine?
