Apologies if this is a duplicate or posted in the wrong place.



I saw a thread like this on another veggie-board, but it didn't get a lot of responses and I'm scared to post there. ^^;;



I live in a suburb of Atlanta, and I'm finding myself dreaming of finding a new location. It's probably not really practical for me to move right now, but it's sort of a future goal for me.



In your opinion, what are the most veg-friendly places to live in North America?



I dream of living in a place that is veg-friendly, has an excellent public transit system so I can give up my car, has community colleges nearby, and doesn't have an impossibly high cost of living.



Realistically, I know that finding a place that meets ALL the criteria is probably impossible...but I would like to hear opinions!

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

A friend of mine from Vancouver, BC is always telling me that he's surrounded by vegans and veggie eating establishments.

I never saw as many veg*ns as there are here!! everywhere I go, there are vegan, vegetarians, raw-foodists, fruitarians, and a dozen other -arians all over the place. Lousy public transit, and a fairly high cost of living tho...

There are a number of good places in the greater SF bay area. Even places that aren't veg'an are pretty good at accomidating them.

If you can't get to a liberal minded place like SF or Hawaii, etc., find a place that is at least ethnically eclectic. (not sure how Atlanta compares). I live in Cleveland, and there are tons of middle eastern, asian, and other ethnic places to eat. So fewer purely veg places but still lots of vegan food can be found.

I actually visted Asheville for a long weekend, Funkified, just to eat at the Laughing Seed. Well, I read this awesome article in Vegetarian Times about Asheville, and since it was in driving distance...we made a long weeked of it. What a cozy and pretty place.



I love going through the quiz at www.findyourspot.com . While it doesn't really specify veg-friendliness, it does give you a glimpse at a few places that might meet your desires. Take a peek at it, ceryna.



I still can't seem to figure out where I want to settle. I've lived here (Fredericksburg, VA) for over three years now. It's okay, but it's realllllly growing. Like, serious development and traffic is becoming waaay too much for me. I'd prefer to not own a car at all.



I need a veg-friendly, progressive small-town with affordable housing on the east coast.

there are a few places in Southern Oregon too. I went to school there and there are a couple vegan friendly places there, in the main town plaza. The Greenleaf, which is nice because it has patio seating outside near the creek that runs through town and another veggie place nearby whose name I can't remember. There's also The Creek, a bar with live music almost every night and a great outdoor patio along the band of the creek for summer time.

My town is famous--notorious--for its ribs and its football emphasis. Yeah, it's (my town), Ohio. The only restaurant listed as vegetarian in the phone book is (a restaurant_, which has repeatedly won the top awards at the annual Ribs Burnoff for their greasy, meaty, sloppy ribs. They do have some vegetarian selections, but their prices keep me away. Instead, I tend toward ethnic cuisines such as Indian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, and some Italian places.

I tried the surveyon FindYourSpot, FD...it gave me some options to think about! ^_^



Atlanta is fairly veg-friendly, I guess...I had some awesome vegan food over the weekend, at Sam's Gourmet Vegetarian Paradise. There's also a decent number of Health Food Stores, and most of the grocery stores contain a "natural foods" section.



Thanks for the ideas and opinions!
