Just curious on your take of this question.

Does the West Coast (Seattle, Portland, Bay Area, LA, San Diego) remind you more of Vancouver/Toronto/Sydney/Melbourne/etc... or more similar to its counterparts on the East Coast like NYC/Philly/Boston/DC/Charlotte/Miami? The reason I ask is because the West Coast developed much later than the East Coast, and has much newer developments and planning in general. Basically if you lined up a West Coast City, East Coast City, and a Canadian or Australian City, how would you compare them.

Yes I know that there is tons of differences between these three countries, but overall we share many common traits. Heck, I was in South Africa this past December and parts of it reminded me of the US. Obviously less so than Canada or Australia, but my point is that the Western World is harmonizing culturally and economically.

So what is your take?

Consider these factors

Technology and application of it
Green Energy
Recreation/Things to do
Urban lifestyle (whatever that means LOL)
Shopping Centers
Entrepreneur Opportunities

Obviously American cities are going to be more like other American cities, than another nation. Especially one that is across a huge ocean and in another hemisphere.

I mean Seattle and Vancouver might be more similar to each other than East Coast cities but that's because they're neighbors.

Architecture: West Canada/Australia
Transportation: East Coast
Density: West Canada/Australia
People/Personalities: East Coast
Technology and application of it: East Coast
Green Energy: East Coast
Recreation/Things to do: West Canada/Australia
Food/culinary: East Coast
Urban lifestyle: EASILY East Coast
Shopping Centers: East Coast
Entrepreneur Opportunities: East Coast

Let's remember the East Coast is more than just the North East. I will also say, I do know a couple of people from New Zealand/Australia who'd rather move to Cali if given the opportunity to move to the US. Mostly the Asians or Polynesians though...
