Daytona Beach

This is about as far away from Arizona as you can get in the United States. The Atlantic Ocean, along the East Coast, is much warmer than the much closer to me, Pacific Ocean. But the drive makes it a lot less convenient. In Arizona, anyone who lives east of St. Johns, Safford and Show Low is said to live "back East." So, by our definition Texas is not the West, but very much a part of the East. California is in a completely different category, the West Coast. It is not really the West, but is always referred to as the West Coast. For us, Arizona defines the "West." Everyone else lives back East, up North, down South or on the Coast
