I'd add Vancouver, BC. The amount of work available here is astonishing.

Traditionally, the area hasn't had many large companies. That's
changing, but still mostly true. What the area does have is dozens of
medium-sized companies and hundreds of small companies.

I don't know, but I'd speculate that the reasons have something to do
with the proximity to Redmond (150 miles) and the importance of the
region for Canada's trade in the Pacific.

Also, of course, we're the closest thing to California that Our Lady of
the Snows affords :-)
