About This Quiz

There isn't any city like a coastal city. There is something about living on the ocean that can't be explained. Of course, there is the physical beauty or the ocean,  but there is much more to it than that. Something about the ocean and living on the coast draws all sorts of interesting people to it. Cities on the coast have the best nightlife, the best arts scenes, the best shopping, the best restaurants, and the best bars. And if you're going to argue that point, that just tells us that you've never been to the coast, or at least that you've never lived there. And while the West Coast has its fans, for our money, the coolest cities happen to be on the East Coast.

Speaking of cool, we know you've got a pretty cool vibe, so which East Coast city are you? Are you the hip, yet still rugged, Portland, Maine? Are you the tough, yet still cool, Boston?  Are you one of the genteel cities of the southern coast, the party all night and beach it all day city of Miami? Or are you possibly even cool and fascinating enough to be the grandest East Coast city of them all, New York City? Take this quiz and find out. We might not be able to tell you where you should live, but we'll tell you where your vibe would fit in the best.
