I would love to live by Big Sur. You have the mountains and the ocean. The best of both worlds.

I have always loved the beach...the smell of the ocean and the sounds of the waves and cries of the birds are the most calming sounds to me. My husband, however, is a mountain man... He loves the silence of the woods. We compromise...summer in the mountains, winter by the beach.

Luckily I have the best of both worlds.  I live in Corvallis, OR, which is between the Cascades and the ocean.  Can be in the mountains or at the coast in under an hour .....

I would take the beach in a warm place in the winter and the mountains in the summer. Of course, I'd want a lake close by tthe mountains.

I was born at the feet of the Big Horns in Wyoming and spent much time in Colorado's Rockies. My home for many years has been near the Pacific in California. I would like to state with great assurance that in California we have it all. The Pacific is at my doorstep; the Sierra Nevada a skip and jump off to the east. As I see the question, however, the choice is not between beach and mountains but ocean and mountains. Mountains have plenty of high-country lakes and their beaches, but the ocean is a world of its own.

We live in the country about 2 miles east of the left coast. It gives us stable weather without extremes. We do get earthquakes, however. And straightening the road in front of our house was nixed by the city.

Oh give me the mountains anytime!!  But not where you get all the snow.  Someplace like Asheville NC.  I was also in Washington in November and loved the pines.  I don't know how bad the winters would be there though.  I don't mind the drizzly days though.  If I want the sound of water, a wonderful mountain brook or stream would be great.  I like to see sunsets at the beaches, and to spend a few hours there, but then I'm good to go (back to the mountains).  So where do I live?  In Indiana, surrounded by CORN!!

I've lived near both & loved both, but the mountains with a lake wins out.  A mountain + a lake offer many more opportunities to use + explore, than the ocean does.Wink
