Vegan friendly cities!
I'm very interested in moving somewhere a tad more populated with vegans once I graduate from college (which is in May)
I'd even love to get a job at a vegan/health place, while supplementing my 'future' art 'career'.
I've been looking around craigslist and places like that.. and it seems New York is a very good place for that (considering also that a friend of mine got a job at a place quickly)
But I also know Philadelphia has a some vegan places..
I'm only really familiar with Pennsylvania, but open to going anywhere (but prefer east coast at the moment)
Anyone have any opinions?
Go West...... Portland Oregon! ;)b
san francisco, ca
los angeles, ca
denver and boulder, co (supposedly, never been to them).
how big of a population do you want? what other things are important to you?
sometimes i think of moving to a nice veg-friendly city, but i really enjoy the happy medium i have right now.. where i have a smaller pop., nice mountains and fields and beaches, and still veggie friendly. it's just fun whenever i go visit SF or LA going out and eating a bunch, but i'm close enough to them it's not a big deal.
BOSTON! They even have their own veg society. :)>>>
i'd love to move somewhere more vegan-friendly too. we only have one vegetarian/vegan restaurant where i live, and it is only open M-F from 11-2! i've thought about going west...either oregon (i have family there) or colorado....but we don't have the money to move right now... >:( maybe one day!
oh duh, i totally forgot boston and chicago!
propinecone lives in chicago, so you should talk to her.
we also have a few vegwebbers in or near boston (JW502 , celtcat, dinkfeet).
BRR!! all those places are cold! become a PA to TX transplant like me : ) hehe just kidding. but austin is a really veg friendly city. but take it from me, it's not easy (or cheap) getting home (PA).
What's so vegan friendly about Boston? I live here and I was just wondering. I know we have Grasshopper, T.J.'s, My Thai, and a couple other places, but is there something I am missing? I mean, I am just coming back from New York where everything was SO vegan friendly. Vegan life was much easier there than it is here. Sigh... I miss New York.
hm... i always thought of boston as a super veg-friendly place, but maybe not! i know there is the boston veg-fest, which is maaaybe why i was thinking that?
sounds just as (or less) veg-friendly than where i live!
I live in Chicago and am not happy with vegeterian/ vegan choices I have compared to when I lived in New york and Hawaii. Well not much in Hawaii but an excellant health food store. If you want to try Kona Hawaii I have a nice studio for rent by the beach. LOL. I think Chicago is great for omnis but there is better places to go. My 2Cents
well, in that case, it looks like you need to move to ca or oregon.
move to san luis obispo, all the cool vegans are doing it
us vegans over here will be like your second family ;)
Santa Fe is pretty vegan friendly. There aren't any vegan restaurants, but there are vegan options almost everywhere. Lots of vegetarians and vegans. Also, chile and sopapillas. And I second the Oregon statement. Also, northern California, speaking from experience. On the east coast, we've always had a great time in DC. But it's hella expensive.
Asheville nc ROCKS! I moved here because of the veg-friendliness and I have no regrets. Plus there is a huge community of art supporters. Nice weather too.
i find that theres a decent amount of veg friendly places in chicago, and we definitely have public transit here. it is damn cold here right now though... i havent left my apt all day.
i found my roommates on craigslist when i planned my move here. i found great ones after meeting some not-so-great ones.
I fourth (?) the suggestion of Oregon/Portland! Rent and the cost of living is comparatively cheap, and we have the best public transit in the nation!! (At least we did 3 years ago when I heard the factoid.) There are TONS of veg*n restaurants here! Plus we have a vegan strip mall that has everything from a grocery store to an acupuncture clinic to a tattoo parlor! Jobs, if you're not too picky, are supposed to be fairly easy to come by. Although with today's economy, you never really know..... Oh yeah, we also have one of the highest minimum wages in the country as well, not to mention NO SALES TAX!
It would be wrong of me not to mention how awesome Manchester is for vegans.
