The Top Ten

1
California
Where do I start. Southern California is expensive and all the places you will pay to live in have NO Character; they are simply lame, generic apartments and homes with no style at all. Along the same lines are the people... Majority of southern Californians have no sense of fashion whatsoever; I mean it could be because they are spending ALL there money on rent, so they are left wearing 1970's Wal-Mart clothes.

Besides those points, there is traffic EVERYWHERE. It is a pain in the butt to get anywhere at all. You spend all of your time in useless Corporate jobs where you most likely have to commute, therefore your in rush hour all of time, and are spending all your money on living.

My next complaint is the ULTRA Strong sun. The problem is that since the temperature is always nice, you don't realize how strong those UV Rays R. I was constantly burnt and got a lot of new freckles. Then there is the Arid, Dry climate that will dry your skin and hair out like a prune. It is horrible.

I just moved home from Southern California and honestly have zero desire to ever go back.
you know its a good state but everyone there is so snotty and dumb and conceited especially those idiots frm los angeles get a life californians
San Francisco is the best CA has to offer, very nice little city on some hills. Chicago, Toronto, Philly, Austin, NYC and Boston are vastly superior cities to live in.

Most Californians live in or adjacent to a desert or an irrigated desert.

California wine is pretty gross.. Despite the marketing. The farms are earth destroying massive corporate farms irrigating desert land with water taken from thousands of miles away... Creating more desert.

Most Californians will tell you they regularly surf and snow board in the same day... Probably between kayaking and drinking fresh avocado juice. My eyes hurt from rolling.

2New York
Personally, I think its boring. Oh look, a tower! Ooh, look, a woman holding a torch! Yay I'm so excited.
Never will you find a place filled with more scum and villainy.
So they have more stores than 25 malls, big fat hairy deal! (I`m reffering to New York City) I wouldn't go to NYC for $100,000

3Texas
So many Texans think that Texas is the most beautiful place in the world (I know that since I live in Texas). But they think that because they have never been out of Texas! Believe me, I have been to a lot of the States in the country and Teas is a VERY ugly state.

Texas is beautiful. At least East Texas is. Rolling hillside dotted with green oaks! Texas is beautiful and relaxing. It really brings you at peace with nature
Yes it is and little to no public property

4Florida
It's called the sunshine state when it should be called the rainy state!
They got them bitches and beaches
It's not even sunny most of the time like California is.

5Michigan
I hate you all. Michigan brought you the cars we have today. If it wasn't for our Henry ford, you would get to your public dead end service jobs on foot. In fact, Michigan is UNDERrated. They say its the worst state for high death rates. Well you know what, that is only 2 cities. Detroit and Flint. If anyone disses Michigan one more time, they shall regret it for the rest of their lives.
Michigan is awesome if you can make it here you can make it anywhere
Crime, corrupt unions, poverty, frigid weather - Michigan has it all!

6Massachusetts
I don't know anything about Massachusetts except for the fact that its got the most annoying name in the world and I felt the urge to troll an entire states population by saying y'all suck... I only said something b/c there are no comments, seriously though, who cares about Massachusetts...

7Colorado
90% of the state is brown and ugly and the other 10 is the mountains. Colorful Colorado only exists in the two weeks of fall where the leaves are changing colors in the mountains. no where else. and all the people are usually from cali or Texas so yeah super humble people. And I am from denver
Wow you idiot -__- Colorado has mountains and actually doesn't have any desert and most deserts do actually snow. Take the Mojave Desert. Iv'e driven through it while it was snowing and the desert actually accumulates about 5 in. Of snow each year.
why is colorado known for snow when almos 80% of it is desert? I mean wtf?

8Virginia
I kinda like va I mean I live there they have great schools but not that great
Virginia overrated I don't think so. I'm not even from Virginia (I'm from NJ) and I think Virginia is a beautiful state with tons (well for America) of history and beautiful historical towns such as Alexandria. Also, many of Washington DC's wealthy suburbs can be found in Virginia along with great shopping. As far as nature goes Virginia does not disappoint. It has beautiful sandy beaches along it's coast and inland rolling hills and mountains and even a good climate for grape growing/wine production.

9Ohio
Alright, I've traveled all over, and I confidently say that Ohio has literally NOTHING to do. Don't vacation here, save your money and camp in your backyard, it's a much better experience than what you'll have in the state of scum.
Cleveland is probably the most boring city in america literally there is nothing. Did I mention the toll roads?
Yay! Miles and Miles of highway ahead!

The Contenders

11Hawaii

12New Jersey
I love New Jersey. I love the people there for the most part. Lush greenery in the north and highly educated people are living there. You have the beaches and the Delaware Water Gap. There are much culture there and diversity. It is so livable. Though I don't recommend everyone moving there because it is so great the way it is.

13Missouri

14Louisiana
It is the most scum filled state ever there is people sitting on the street corners its horrible.

15Washington

16Wisconsin

17North Carolina

18Oregon

19Nevada

20Illinois
