Haha. I won't call you crazy! unfortunately I've never been to the Bay.

Have you been to both cities? I'm curious why you feel that way.

Where do I begin? Let's just say that Seattle has a very welcoming, homey and down to earth feel. I prefer the people in Seattle they are easier to deal with. I also think it is a very well landscaped city. I have spent a lot of time in San Francisco and Seattle. I prefer Los Angeles to San Francisco too. There is a freshness in Seattle and Los Angeles that you just don't feel in San Francisco. I do love San Francisco for many things but glad I discovered Seattle in my journeys.

Seattle has a lot of East Coast urban qualities but once you see Mt. Rainier you know that your definitely in the Pacific Northwest. I also like the unique neighborhoods in Seattle. Even though Pike Place Market is touristy, it is real and the locals shop there...unlike Fisherman's Wharf.

Seattle is a city living in the now.

"Those are great pictures! I just don't like Seattle, though."

Why not? I am not a big fan of the Western US but like Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles.
You can have the rest.

In Canada and Australia I often wonder which coast they prefer for their own countries. Like the US there are more cities in the eastern side of their country.

I'm sorry you feel that way. Just curious as to why and where you're from.
