Well, that covers diet but whats the area like?
No major cities but many of small coastal communities all the way up the extensive coastline. The further you go inland the smaller and more secluded the towns get. Many lakes so water sports are big in the summers and some good mountains to ski and snowboard on in the winters. Economy is largely reliant on local agriculture and the fishing industry but it's a great place to grow up especially if you're near the ocean. It's the perfect place to get away and just enjoy nature and enjoy some of the simpler things in life.
