The West Coast is the best coast. I spent about three years living in Los Angeles and not a week goes by where I don't consider moving back out there. My perspective is the East Coast has a bit of arrogance - that the world revolves around the East Coast. The West Coast has a bit of ignorance - there is no world beyond the West Coast. I like the ignorance of the West Coast. While living out here you live in your own little world, it's an absolutely glorious world.
Is there a better state than California? No. There is not. It is the best. The end.
