As much as I love California, I am not close minded and view it as the best state in the US LOL. I filled out a questionnaire recently asking about what I like as far as climate, activities, education, cost of living
, etc, etc... and I got several results and most of them were from places in Oregon
I had never given Oregon much thought but I have some friends that live up there and they absolutely love it.
Oregon is very green and it is the state just north of California. Honestly, I wouldn't mind moving there, in fact, the more I read about it, the more I can see myself there. Who knows... maybe one day in the future I might move there...
The best match was a place claled Willamette Valley. Here is what it says about this region:
The Willamette Valley is the heart of Oregon’s agriculture country. During spring and summer growing seasons, roadside stands dot the country lanes, and farmers’ markets appear in the valley’s historic towns. Covered bridges beckon drivers to explore the many back roads, and the valley’s flat terrain and temperate climate make it a favorite for hikers and cyclists, who also enjoy the paved paths in the college towns of Eugene and Corvallis. Nestled among its rolling hills are over 200 wineries producing a medley of vintages—Pinot noir, Pinot gris and Riesling to mention a few. The valley, dubbed Oregon’s Wine Country, is one of Oregon’s major wine-growing regions.
And I'd be closer to the pacific ocean still...
And my goodness!!!!
I can just imagine myself crossing this bridge
