7 Reasons Why The West Coast Is The Best Coast
It’s an age-old debate: East Coast or West Coast? The answer almost always depends on where you call home, but for the sake of argument, we’re here to convince you that the West Coast really
is the best coast. From reasons relating to the incredible natural landscape to general lifestyle, you might find yourself wanting to move here ASAP.
1. Our National Parks are nothing short of iconic.
The U.S. is filled with awe-inspiring National Parks. Head to the West Coast, and you'll find some of the most iconic of them: Mount Rainier National Park, Sequoia National Park, and Yosemite.
2. The food will knock your socks off.
The authentic Mexican food alone might be enough to convince any food lover to move to the West Coast. Outside of Mexico, this region of the U.S. makes some of the most delicious burritos in the world. They've even perfected the California Burrito, which has fries wrapped up inside.
3. The beaches here are out-of-this-world beautiful.
It's hard to imagine the West Coast without its endless stretches of shoreline. Experiencing a true West Coast sunset with your toes in the sand is a bucket list experience.
4. The Pacific Coast Highway makes for an incredibly scenic drive.
There's no better way to experience the West Coast than a good old-fashioned road trip along the Pacific Coast Highway (also known as CA-SR 1). This drive stretches for 650 miles and is the longest highway in all of California.
5. We've got the world's best coffee...
Head to Seattle, Washington and you'll find yourself in coffee heaven. It's here that Starbucks was founded, although that just scratches the surface of the countless coffee companies in this region of the U.S. Small, craft coffee shops are found in abundance and offer brews unlike any other.
6...And the world's best wine.
No trip to the West Coast is complete without a visit to Sonoma Valley, California. It's here that some of the most prestigious and delicious wines in the world are grown. You'll also find award-winning wines in Oregon's Willamette Valley and Washington's Columbia Valley.
7. Everything here is a little more laid-back.
While there are plenty of bustling cities out here, you can never take the easygoing, laid-back vibe out of the West Coast. And we wouldn't have it any other way!
These are just few of the many reasons why life’s so much sweeter on the West Coast. Do you agree with us? Would you add any other reasons to this list? We’d love to hear from you!
