RE: accents, yes, Eastern wins it. But overall, I find people from both sides interesting, in their own ways.

I don't know that I would say more interesting, but would say the east is more diverse.

The Eastern portion of the US is much older, with a few exceptions like Santa Fe and San Francisco, so it has had more time to develop an identity, which makes it seem more interesting over all.

This is an interesting way to put it. Being from the eastern half and having traveled extensively through both halves, I can honestly say that people in both halves are equally as interesting.

Interesting varies by person.

Since the East part of the Country was where it all began, it has more of a culture and more of an historic vibe.. And the people tend to have more of an identity if that makes sense.
You can easily tell right off the bat the difference of a New Yorker and a person from Georgia.. You just hear it in their accent and you can actually see it in the persons mannerism.
Can I say that about a person from California and a person from Washington or even Colorado? Not really... Those states just don't have as strong of an identity or character to rub off onto its natives, the people just tend to have their own way of making their own identity; You can't tell where they come from unless you ask.

I'm not ragging on the west or anything, because what i'm saying isn't really a big deal ... but the East just has more people that have a shining character about them that gleams wherever state they're from.

I think the west overall is more interesting because its more untouched and offers an overall experience that is much different from the rest of the country.

Alaska and Hawaii are also in the West and they couldnt be further apart from each other.

The East offers no surprises(pleasant or otherwise) for most Americans since most Americans live over there.

I doubt you ever met anyone from the West...
