What do you like about the East Coast vs. West Coast?
I would also like to know this. I've lived in CA all my life.
So have I. I'm also curious.
On one side you get to watch the sweet sunset over the water, on the other side of the country not so much.
I went to Ocean City, MD last summer and my mom told me to watch the sun set over the ocean. I told her, this is the east coast, that's impossible. To this day she still doesn't understand why.
The sunrise over the ocean is just as striking, but admittedly involves more of an adjustment to most people's daily schedule. And it IS possible on the east coast of Florida ;)
omg how has this never occurred to me?
I've been taking ocean sunsets for granted D:
i grew up in the midwest but also traveled a lot in the west spending a lot of time in Utah, Colorado, Arizona, California, etc. and i live in DC now and honestly people on the east coast have so much baggage. people in the west and midwest are generally more level headed and just nice and what you see is what you get, etc. but in working and going to school on the east coast i've met so many people who are immature, unprofessional, etc. (just my experience of course). i've lived in DC for 3 years and i kind of hate it now tbh. i really want to move west.
Wanna trade? I'm thinking about moving to DC, lol. I don't know why, my heart is just pulling me there. I don't know anyone there or have any specific reasons. I'm probably crazy.
Interesting view on the East, btw! Thanks
The West Coast seems more laid back but it's difficult to compare them because there are SO MANY states on the East Coast and they all vary and don't have one giant feel to all of them. Granted, I've only spent less than a month on the West Coast. Where on the East Coast would you be thinking of moving?
DC or New York. I have essentially no reason other than for the sake of adventure. I impulsively moved to San Francisco [like, three weeks after deciding, no job, no savings, totally naive and stupid] a little over a year ago and it's the best thing I have ever done, but I'm ready for the next chapter and feel pulled to the East for some reason. Although who knows, everything is completely up in the air right now.
New York City is great and I love visiting, but living there is a struggle if you don't have a lot of money saved up, won't be able to land a job in something like finance, don't have parents supporting you or want to live outside the city.
I have never experienced living on the east coast, but it sure looks colder. Maybe not in the south, but I couldn't handle the northeast.

Out west, just because of time zones. Here (Idaho, Mountain time), most national sporting events start no later than 6:30PM and are done by 10 or 10:30. I'm not staying up until midnight every day for a week to see the end of the World Series.
I'm from the west coast (LA) but I currently live on the east coast (South Carolina). I like the west coast better
Where will you move? There's a huge difference between the NE, DC area, Carolinas/GA, Florida... HUGE difference. I've lived EC most of my life (all except for 5 years in austin texas). Some places are awesome. Some places suck.
im a californian and have lived on the east coast for 2 years now......LOVE IT!
