In 1965, the Beach Boys put forth in their hit song “California Girls” the much-touted line “the West Coast has the sunshine.” Although the West Coast does indeed have sunshine, claiming that it has “the” sunshine sort of suggests that the West Coast has a monopoly on the sunshine. And as we all know, Florida is “The Sunshine State.” But we’re not here to fight over sunshine. We are here, however, to sing the praises of living on the East Coast, and particularly of living in South Florida -where we not only have sunshine, but we also have great pizza, delicious bagels, and one of the best local moving companies in the nation.
Moving Squad has been South Florida’s top-rated moving company for over 50 years, so we’ve been living on the east coast for quite some time. And we thought we’d share some of the things we enjoy about living on the east coast with our customers. So, without further ado – here’s what we came up with.
Things You Can Enjoy About Living in the East Coast
It’s got class, it’s got sass, and it’s got character. Perks of living on the East Coast include:
What’s the secret ingredient that makes East Coast pizza and bagels so inarguably superior to West Coast pizza and bagels? The answer is the water. It turns out that the higher mineral count in the East Coast water (New York has the highest in the country) is responsible for that oh so chewy, oh so tasty pizza and dough brings people to John’s, Joe’s, Roberta’s, Denino’s, and L and B’s in Bensonhurst!

If you were paying attention in your history class, you might know that the first thirteen American colonies started on, what is now, the East Coast of America. That means that the great battles of the American Revolution, and all the shenanigans leading up to it, occurred there. Face it, the East Coast is America old school. It’s where it all went down back in the day. Check out Philadelphia for the Liberty Bell and a bunch of cool museums.

Sure, the west coast is nice and spread out, but if you live on the East Coast, you do have the advantage of being able to travel quickly to a lot of different areas and experience a variety of cultures.
Yes, the east coasters do their fair share of California dreamin’ in the wintertime, but then again, the east coasters don’t have to dream of white Christmases – nor snow days, nor fall foliage, nor overly enthusiastic dogs on snowy winter days. Seasons keep it interesting, and if you don’t like the weather, you can always come to South Florida, where living on the east coast is always warm and welcoming.
What do Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Brown, Cornell, Columbia, Dartmouth, and U of Penn have in common? They’re all Ivy League schools, and they’re all on the East Coast. If getting a spectacular education is a high priority, you can’t get a better than Ivy League. The East Coast is the home of all eight Ivy League colleges.
