If you called the West Coast your home for the majority of your life, you know there's nothing really like growing up there. Sure, it might take adventuring to other parts of the U.S. to realize that the West Coast truly is a unique lifestyle. But no matter where you wander to on the globe, there will always be those telltale signs you grew up on the West Coast.
I mean, I love the West Coast because I grew up in a pretty well-known place called Los Angeles. But, even if you didn't live in Cali specifically, you know there are some surefire differences between how you grew up as opposed to someone who's from the East Coast. And no, this article is not meant to further thicken that East Coast vs. West Coast beef, because both have their perks. Besides, West Coasters would rather save the beef for those yummy In-N-Out burgers. (Yeah, I went there.)
It's not easy leaving a place blessed with the most amazing weather and beaches, but life's an adventure that includes exploring new parts of the world. Cali will always be there, as will New York and other big cities on either coast. But again, if the West Coast is where your heart and childhood memories remain, these nine signs you grew up there are so accurate.
