The mountains.
The ocean.
The 2010 OLYMPICS!!!
Fresh (and delicious!) seafood all year round.
Gorgeous parks.
Beautiful seasons, despite the sometimes constant rain.
Friendly people.
The suburbs (where I live). It's far enough away from the city to feel less busy, but close enough to go downtown easily whenever I'd like.
So many fun outdoor things to do, and great indoor stuff as well.
We have a fantastic NHL team, and the city is full of crazy fans.
The fact that you can go snowboarding and waterskiing on the same day.
Great locally brewed beer.

Diemen, when/where/why are you moving?
Though it's not completely set in stone, yet, I'll most likely be moving to Chicago in July. I just couldn't stand the thought of you being nearby (cue Jew joke).

Actually, if this all works out I'll be leaving my job and going back to school to do something that I can actually be passionate about. And moving in with the girlfriend (who has been amazingly supportive and gung ho about moving halfway across the country and in together).

Yes, I'm copying you.

My Girlfriend and I broke up a few weeks ago, so, don't copy me too much!



Best of luck with everything. Chicago was decidedly not for me, but, it's still a great city, a real city.

Ian, who says we didn't boof in Chicago?

Well ...

- High living standard
- Quiet, newly built area
- On the foothills with a nice view of rolling hills and the ocean
- Close to the CBD (city centre)
- Cooler weather than suburban areas

The change of seasons

I can be in a major city, at the beach or at the mountains or in a very small town all within similar time frames. But I still have the quiet of my suburb and I live a very short walk from a park with hundreds of miles of open space.

The sports

The social progressiveness in a few areas

Rich in history

I love the bay area too. I cant believe you're moving.

I love that I live close enough to San Francisco to visit it whenever I'd like, but I prefer a quieter city as the one I'm in. Lots of trees, great weather, and every store or shop and restaurant I could possibly need within a 5 - 10 mile radius.

1) The weather. I believe seasons are overrated and thus like my lovely SoCal weather. We average between 60-80 most of the year occasionally getting in the the 50's or 90's.

2) The Beach. I love going to the beach and can get there within 30 minutes depending on traffic.

3) The Mountains. I do occasionally like to breathe clean air. Seriously, I love going up to the mountains, and we aren't all that far from Sequoia National Park.

4) My particular neighborhood is also awesome. I'm walking distance to the Metro Red line, thus close to Hollywood. I can take the train to various awesome concert venues, the Music Box, Palladium, Hollywood Bowl, The Wiltern, Nokia and Staples. If I'm staying on the Eastside/Downtown I don't need my car. And there are like 50 Thai places within walking distance (I live in Thai Town).

5) My sports teams have awesome venues. I think the LA Coliseum and Dodger stadium are just perfect. For me nothing beats BBQing some TriTip or Carne Asada on campus at USC on game day. Is it September yet?

6) In general, I also love my State, I can drive to San Diego, Monterey, Yosemite, San Francisco and Vegas (not in my state) very easily. There's pretty much everything I could want within an easy drive.

ETA How could I forget?

7) The food! Being in the 2nd largest city in the US we can get just about every food you can think of. The street food runs the gamut from "suicide" dogs (bacon wrapped hot dogs that you eat at your own risk) to gormet food trucks. The Mexican, Thai and Korean food in this city are amazing as is the Sushi. Oh and In-n-Out Burger, Fatburger and Tommy's have worthy burgers.

How could I have possibly forgotten the sushi?! We have some pretty phenomenal sushi places here. The best one is on the first floor of my office building. The employees there all know my name, and the dishes I regularly order.
