My wife I just returned from a trip to California. Our home base was Downey, just outside L.A. This marked the fourth time I’ve been out west. Colorado Springs, Las Vegas, Seattle and Portland on one trip, and most recently L.A. and San Diego on this trip.
The two best cities, I thought, were San Diego and Seattle. San Diego was beautiful, perfect weather, clean, right on the ocean. We both said we could easily live there.
Being from the northeast U.S., Philadelphia to be exact, I wondered if there’s anyone out there who lives out west and who has visited the east coast and thought about moving east?
I couldn’t imagine that being the case with the northeast’s frigid winters, the southeast’s storms and such. The west just seems so perfect. Every time I’ve gone out west I’ve had a great time and could easily adjust to living on the west coast. And I think west coast living is quite different than east coast living in many respects. Not all, of course, but many.
But how 'bout you left coast dwellers? Ever dream of moving to New York City? Maybe Washington, D.C.? Or Miami?
