Before traveling to the West Coast, there are a number of things to understand. There are many stereotypes and general beliefs about the place that are not entirely true.
For example, people on the West Coast are stereotyped as being raging leftists. Well, yes, there are a lot of left-winged people. However, there are also a lot of right-winged people. When you move away from the urban coastal areas, there are many more right winged people and voters of Republicans.
When people think of the West Coast, they tend to think of palm trees and eternal sun. The West Coast happens to be home to a variety of different climates that range from very hot to temperate. There are parts of the West Coast that experience freezing temperatures and snowy weather.
The “West Coast” is not just California; it consists of California, Oregon and Washington.
No, not everybody is blonde on the West Coast. When some people think of the West Coast, they may think of blonde, Barbie-like Valley girls. Not everybody is like this. There are plenty of brunettes, raven heads and maybe a few redheads thrown in.
Not every single human being in San Francisco is gay. The city has the highest amounts of people who identify as LGBTQ. However, when you look at the big picture, this makes up only 6.2% of the city’s entire population. About 4.6% of New York City’s population is in the millionaire category, though nobody says that everybody in New York City is a millionaire!
