If you come to the West Coast, the only place to live is San Diego ;D ;D ;D ;D I lived on the East coast for a couple of years, thanks but no thanks, had to go 50 miles plus to go to the beach. it was a small town and it seemed like you had to go miles to get to anywhere. I did love the change of seasons there, (we don't have that here) Hated the Summer's, loved the Spring and the winter's. I will say that San Francisco is a beautiful city also, wouldn't live in LA if someone gave me house, well maybe if it was a really big house and I didn't have to drive anywhere there. Would love to visit Maine and Connecticut from what I have seen on TV they both look beautiful. I guess if I think about it, there are + and -'s to both the East and the West.
