What You Can Expect Living in Washington
Washington is a large state. It’s the 18 largest state in the Union, as a matter of fact! Beautiful vistas abound. From ocean beaches to mountain tops, forests, waterfalls, and everything in between, there’s no doubt that this state is a nature-lover’s paradise.
The culture in Washington is quite different than what you will find back home in New Jersey. It is one of the best places for small businesses to set up shop, so you can expect to see a lot more handmade goods, personalized services, and homegrown restaurants that use fresh, innovative ingredients.
Washington is also one of the best places in the country when it comes to beer. Only California has more craft breweries. This is no surprise when you consider that this state contributes 75 percent of the country’s hops production thanks to the weather.
Speaking of the weather, it’s likely to be the biggest difference you experience moving from New Jersey. Weather tends to be wetter and cooler than what you might be used to. However, it does depend on whether you move to eastern or western Washington. The western portion of the state is heavily influenced by the Pacific Ocean, while the eastern portion of the state experiences a semi-arid climate.
