Best States in the U.S.A.


The Top Ten

1 California California

The guy below me that said it is in the mid 60's all year round: you're an idiot and you clearly don't live in California if you believe that laugh out loud I lived their for 18 years. Hated every minute. Crowded, expensive, rude people. This and New York are 2 of the worst states to live in. Only plus side of California: Orange County, the beach, anywhere except LA, Sacramento, and San Francisco. Basically anywhere but the big cities.

Calm down. I live in California and there are so many tourist spots and nice scenery. This is a good state, you're just focusing on the negatives. - missyweirdo

There should be no debate about this Florida is hot and humid. In southern California the temperature can be in the mid 60's all year round. In northern California it provides some of the best and most scenic national parks in the world including yosemite, sequoia, and Kings Canyon. When people think of California they think of the beach and big cities but they don't seem to remember the variety of places to visit that this wonderful state has.

Mid 60's! Honey, no. It gets really hot and reaches the mid 70's and high 80's most of the time. Check yourself before you wreck yourself. - missyweirdo

California hands down. It has the most to offer for places to visit. It has the most breathtaking scenery in all the country. Lake Tahoe, the Pacific Ocean, and Yosemite to mention a few. It has the best weather. It also has many outstanding wineries throughout the state which are located in beautiful surroundings. It's great to live in a place where you can travel close by and have so much to offer!

Well, I keep hearing on the news about all the crime in the Southern Part of Los Angeles, but I know it isn’t all that dangerous. If you go to most parts of the SFBA or Los Angeles, you’ll actually find it very safe. Plus, there’s always something to do in the the state. They even have Disneyland but who cares about it. They don’t have any thrills like magic mountain does. - JoeBoi

2 Florida Florida

Florida is my favorite state BY FAR! It has gorgeous beaches, amazing cities, and Disney World, which is my favorite amusement park :) I LOVE Florida! I know the drivers are terrible, but all of the other amazing experiences it has to offer make up for that one downside! Florida is amazing

I Live in Florida and let me tell it pretty awesome especially because has nice weather all the time and it's the state that doesn't also its known for its great beaches/ Florida is where all NASA Shuttles take off Including Apollo 13 And Florida is amazing Orlando, Miami, clearwater, and Tampa.

I know I'm probably going to get shot for putting this above California, but let's face it, Florida is the best of all. It has beautiful beaches, TONS of amazing amusement parks, great cities (MIAMI), and tons of other attractions that make this the best state in America! - christopher94

More like the worst, cause SML lives there and they're garbage

Really? Does a person living there makes a state, the "worst" state? - HoldenFanatic

3 New York New York

Florida is the center of art, talent, development and presidential leadership. Yes it has many rules, road signs and tolls but that is there to contribute to the organization a of this state. There is untouchable law and order and crimes are dealt with immediately. It's towns, neighborhoods and cities are kept safe and people are not worried. At least, I'M not worried. It might like in tourism when you compare it to other states but that is ONE FLAW. There are literally thousands of shops, entertainment venues and fast food restaurants to keep people happy. New York, YOU'RE A WINNER! - davakoh

New York is worst thing I've herd of it's too populated I'm a country boy listen to rock back there all I would here is kiss pop rap nothing good I would let kiss kidnap me my ant is from New York she's not really my ant she's my cousin there horrible I live in Oklahoma they live in Texas Houston just had a horicane there but she tells her daughter your not gonna turn out like your brother in front of her son they never really bonded Doe but he's one year younger he basically locked in a cage he's not really locked in a cage the only time he gets funtime is with his dad

Downstate and NYC/Long Island are great if you can afford them. When you live here, you are spoiled for choice and can't accept the mediocrity of other places. Anything North of Westchester stinks, especially Albany and the other towns surrounding it as they are black holes of corruption. People dream of living in NY from all over the world. Too bad it's just that, a dream, for many people. Too many of us have to leave our families and move to other places to survive.

When most people think of New York, they think of the city with you know, the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building, but it’s the city with the same name as the state. Of course there are dangerous parts of the state you should avoid going to, but for the most part, it’s kind of a great place to live and visit. - JoeBoi

4 Texas Texas Texas is a state in the USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.

Definitely the best state out there, probably the most underrated as well, when it comes to entertainment we have six flags, the riverwalk, la galleria, the tower of America, and other small gems, with texas having just as much if not more great cities than California being San Antonio Houston Dallas and so on while overrated New York is only known for New York City, housing in our major cities is way cheaper than New York City and Los Angeles where you can buy much more affordable homes/apartments this is what makes me proud to be a texan

Texas is the great state you can say every bad thing you want about Texas but every one loves the lone star state and you can't deny that

Let's face it, New York and California are corrupted to the core by socialism and communism. You want a free and more conservative, tranditional state, Texas is probably the best.

Good ol'Texas. Freindly, fun, exciting delicious and warm. Always happy when here.

5 Colorado Colorado Colorado is a state in the United States encompassing most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains.

Yes, yes, and yes! This state is the absolute best in the nation! There is so much to do there! It has everything: Mountains, lakes, rivers, tourism, forests, campgrounds, large cities (Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, Pueblo, Greeley, Fort Collins), great restaurants, decent schools, diversity, great state parks, national monuments, natural sculptures, you name it! I lived in Colorado for ten years, and I can't wait to move back! I live in Oregon, and nothing can compare to Colorado! It is the most beautiful state in the nation, and a great place to live! I can't wait to move back and say, "Colorado, I'm home! " I think Oregon is okay, but I can't wait to be a police officer in Colorado! Thank the Lord for blessing us with this state! I love you, Colorado!

It's a great place to visit with a lot to do. Its also a great place to live. Nice neighbors, plenty of resources, good schools/colleges, many opportunities, etc. Its just a really awesome state! I'd say it's the state of dreams too!

In southern cities like Colorado Springs Or Pueblo, it is sunny and beautiful like New Mexico.

Lots of freedom here

6 Hawaii Hawaii Hawaii is the 50th and most recent state of the United States of America, receiving statehood on August 21, 1959.

This place is GORGEOUS! I love it! Every corner of Hawaii is beautiful and amazing!

Hawaii is the best place for vacation. It is a clean island with a lot of excitement.

It's small though To live in what if I want to go to other states?

You'd be surprised, it's actually pretty large! Not as big as most mainland states, but large enough for it to take over an hour to drive across even the smaller islands. And even then, every single island has a LOT to do. Beaches, parks, mountains, canyons and forest reserves are on every island. - AsianBlood

Has a lot of things to do such as going to amazing beaches. - HoldenFanatic

7 Pennsylvania Pennsylvania Pennsylvania, officially the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a state located in the northern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.

The Keystone State has been home to the Nation's capitol (Philadelphia 6xs, Lancaster, & York), the Birthplace of the nation, the first true religious freedom state, First place of protest against slavery in the U.S. A, some of the biggest manufactures reside in the state (US Steel, Heinz, Hershey), Home to many of the countries first and/or oldest (Bank, Fire department, University, Art Museum, Zoo, Library system, Medical School, and literally almost every else. ) The geographical makeup of the state is also very diverse, as well as the people and animals which inhabit the state. Pennsylvania is indeed a VERY underrated state.

Pennsylvania is by far the most underrated state. It has preserved its culture and beauty. Sometimes I think you haven't lived in America until you've toured the Amish and historic areas of the state. Plus, you can't forget that Philadelphia is here, history and all. And what would we do without Hershey's?

Pennsylvania is a beautiful state. there are a lot of things to do in Pa. Philadelphia has the liberty bell. Hershey is also a great place to go home of Americas favorite chocolate Hershey's chocolate there's chocolate world. Pennsylvania is also my home state. Pennsylvania is not the best state but still it is a very nice state and definitely one of the top ten best states in the. U.S.A. - CRK10

8 Washington Washington Washington is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States located north of Oregon, west of Idaho, and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is the only state named after a president.

Washington. You can find a happy medium for all. As far as the person who disputed the 60s weather and said they lived there for 18 years and is sucked? Does that mean you lived in every part?

This rain stereotype is awful. Washington has mountains, pine tree forests, and gorgeous summers with long days.

Why is washington 10th?

Seattle. Mt. Rainier. Olympic National Park. This state is absolutely stunning.

9 Minnesota Minnesota Minnesota is a state in the Midwestern United States. Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd state on May 11, 1858, created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory.

Glad to see my home state up so high where it should be. We have amazingly warm Summer's like Florida, and cold winters like Alaska, Minnesota is the best. - Beatlesboy9

I live in West St. Paul, and all I can say is, a lot of bunnies and trees. Which is a perk. Also, we have Mall of America. You should go check it out if you haven't been there or going on a trip to this state.

Minnesota is awesome. VIKINGS!

I live here. It's fun.

10 Maryland Maryland Maryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

There would be no Washington DC if it were not for Maryland. It may not be the best state ever, but it is an extremely important one.

They have wonderful clam chowder

Maryland is the best state, not California! - dsamba1062

11 Illinois Illinois Illinois is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. It is the 5th most populous state and 25th largest state in terms of land area, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country.

I live only an hour south of downtown Chicago, and the city is beautiful, epic architecture, great music, and amazing food, the only issue is the gangs in the outlying neighborhoods, but Illinois has some scenic places as well like starved rock, and garden of the gods

Chicago AKA the Windy City is a nice place to be. A lot of job opportunities right by Lake Michigan and has the 2nd tallest building in the world.

From big cities to country! Illinois is a great place for tourism!

Great place. Chicago, Springfield, Naperville, Aurora, Joliet, Peoria, Rockford. They’re all good cities. - JoeBoi

These are just a few things that this state has to offer or gave the world. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is one if not the best state in the U.S. and the world.

This is the stereotypical New England state. People love baseball and sea food and the ocean. Well most would visit Boston, I think cape Call of Duty is the best. Calm water, beaches and great white sharks. This cape is the best part of the state.

I do like some other states more but I feel so bad for Massachusetts because it's 38! Boston, Cambridge, Cape Call of Duty, Martha's Vineyard...

New Hampshire > Massachusetts

13 Maine Maine

As someone who lives in Maine, I can easily say that Maine is a great state, low crime rate, quite and peaceful neighborhoods up north, great scenery, and a great tourist sight. If you visit Maine I recommend you explore the entire state and do some sightseeing, don't forget to buy a bottle of Moxie a soda only sold in Maine you'll have a 50/50 chance of liking it though. The only downside for me is the winter and snowfall that can occur even in April. - BlackMetalHoundoom

Where else could you find beautiful scenery and rivers? Maine! Friendly people, quiet, and beautiful.

I'm glad to see Maine so high up. - BrideiMacBella

It is an amazing state

Hello, the best state your looking at there would be no United States if it weren't for Virginia because it is the capital of the white house.

This state is the most beautiful, underrated state. Great people, great services, it"s the American dream.

I love living in Alexandria. It's so beautiful here. - countnightdark13

15 Alaska Alaska Alaska is a U.S. state situated in the northwest extremity of the Americas. The Canadian administrative divisions of British Columbia and Yukon border the state to the east; it has a maritime border with Russia to the west across the Bering Strait.

Alaska is a beautiful place to live, to visit, and to stay. Alaska was declared a state on January 3, 1959. America did purchase Alaska in 1867. Alaska has evolved into a great place with endless adventures and hikes. Beauty is from every angle. There is a giant chocolate fountain here in Alaska! And great food, nice people, nice houses, all you need to live. This is my favorite state, (Besides California)

Why does everyone hate Alaska's cold weather

Alaska is #15 on both most and least hated states. I don't know why

This place is so cold that people would have a hard time adapting to living here. - JoeBoi

18 South Carolina South Carolina South Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state is bordered to the north by North Carolina, to the south and west by Georgia across the Savannah River, and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean.

I live in Columbia and it's a really good place to live! The education may not be the BEST in the US but we still learn what we need to learn in order to be successful in life! The city is very nice, the state parks are great, and the people are friendly! South Carolina is really not as bad as people say it is. It's a great place!

I like how South Carolina is right below North Carolina on this list, just like it is on the map.

Nothing could be finer than being in Carolina...

Friendly people, fairly cold winters, and hot summers. Pepsi was invented in North Carolina and so was airplanes. Great beaches, and lots of things to do!

Mountains, Foothills, Beaches, Fantastic Food, Our State Magazine, face it... North Carolina has it all.

Carowinds is so much fun, Greensboro is awesome, the mountains are amazing, and the beaches are great!

Georgia has lakes, good weather, four seasons, nice people, diversity, black women and ATLANTA. I live here and can't get out of here. It's safe, there are jobs, nice people, it's affordable, fun and much more. Come and find out for yourself. Other states suck big time.

You know I'm going to vote Georgia because I live here----I think most people did the same thing for their states :) I don't have anything against any other states but I like them all! They're all unique!

I Love Georgia because the big Sports teams

Obviously the best state

Yeah that's right! Warm weather, good education. The only thing missing is a beach, but WHO CARES?!?! There's pools, resorts, good community, SUN TANS! Best state EVER! One reason other states have more votes is OVERPOPULATION! (no offense, they're great, but you got NOTHING on AZ! )

Nice place not to forget about the lakes and snow!

23 New Jersey New Jersey New Jersey is a state in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware.

If you don't live in Newark, Trenton, Camden, Paterson, or any other ghetto here you will live in a great neighborhood at most 1 hour from either NYC or Philly, 2 of the greatest cities in the world. Jersey shore isn't trash like MTV portrays it. You should check out towns here like Franklin Lakes, Saddle River, Alpine, Upper Saddle River, Mendham, Mountain Lakes, the rest of Morris County, Somerset County, Essex Fells, Montclair, West Orange, Livingston, Cherry Hill, Princeton, and places like this. The wealth here is crazy. Your hair will be blown back. This is what Jersey really is. Go to Long Beach Island for a weekend and tell me you want to leave and I'll call you the biggest liar ever for saying that. (Which you are)

welcome to the richest, coolest, densest, former smartest, underrated, east coast, home to the most talented people- state in America. p. s. Atlantic City rules!

Cold winters, sunny summers, friendly people, and nice and quiet! New Jersey rocks!

NJ is the best state peoples

24 Vermont Vermont

I simply can not think of a single downside. No crime, beautiful nature, good economy, civil liberties galore. I think the likes of Washington and Franklin, the great men who built this nation, would be impressed with the world of Vermont.

What a beautiful state!

Someday I will get out of Nebraska and come here. Mark my words!

It’s absolutely beautiful, the people are friendly and it’s the safest and cleanest state in America. This should be WAY higher.

25 Wisconsin Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

The land of cheese and beer, need I say anymore, where else can you expeirance all types of weather in four days?

Cold winters and great cheese! Friendly people and so many friendly people.

My home state! We got it all here, cheese, beer, bratwursts, and good sports (Go Pack Go). And the weather is really nice and mild in the summer, and snowy winters (I really like snow). Wisconsin should be at least in the top ten! -PackFan2005

27 Michigan Michigan

A lot of people have cottages up in Michigan and you could go fishing in a bunch of lakes to choose from. Pure Michigan.

Number 24, WHAT! Michigan is awesome. It has the longest coastline in the lower 48 and is magnificent. People say Detroit is dangerous, but it is not that bad. Detroit is close to both Lake Huron and Erie, and is situated right on lake st Clair. Sleeping bear dunes national lakeshore is underrated compared to Yosemite and Yellowstone. There are tons of beaches in Michigan and no sharks, just friendly lake sturgeon.

Detroit is awesome and probably has the greatest airport in America

Definitely one of the more underrated states

28 Utah Utah Utah is a state in the western United States. It became the 45th state admitted to the Union on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th-largest, the 31st-most populous, and the 10th-least-densely populated of the 50 United States.

Uh... Have you seen our National Parks. That's right. Utah has everything from the best snow on Earth, to beaches by our Great Salty lake. We get wonderfully warm summers and beautiful white Christmas's. Yeah. Utah is the best ever!

Contains some of the best National Parks in the United States. Hosted the 2002 Olympics. Has the greatest snow on earth...could I go on?

We are the best. How is Nebraska better than Utah? Can anyone answer me this question? The answer to that riddle is no.

29 Montana Montana Montana is a state in the Western region of the United States. The state's name is derived from the Spanish word montaña.

There is no other state as beautiful as Montana. Just Google "glacier national park" or "Beartooth range Montana" and you'll see exactly what I mean. No other state even comes CLOSE to the beauty of Montana. I mean, California has the Sierra's but they pale in comparison to the glacially carved Northern Rockies of Montana.

Glad its #19. Don't believe the myths that the snow never melts. It's full of mountains and places to explore, such as the sadly dwindling Glacier National Park. There are some great places to live such as Missoula and Bozeman that are always overlooked.

Montana is so pretty. It is a awesome state. Yellowstone National Park is in Montana. - ninja122710

31 Nevada Nevada Nevada is a state in the Western, Mountain West, and Southwestern regions of the United States of America.

Las Vegas really makes Nevada popular. If you go there you at least come home with $100.

Great snow, great desert and scenery, and no taxes! It's a paradise for libertarians and ancaps like myself who enjoy beautiful scenery like this state has to offer. Also, if you're a partier, Las Vegas is great for gambling.

South Dakota has some friendly small towns you'll come across and some decent sized cities. There are even great museums! Sure we don't have all the bells and whistles, but South Dakota is good ol' folks

37 Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska is a state that lies in both the Great Plains and the Midwestern United States. Its state capital is Lincoln.

Nebraska has really good places to get jobs. It also has decent weather in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. We don't get earthquakes, tsunamis, nor hurricanes. We do have tornados (rarely), hailstorms/snowstorms, thunderstorms/rainstorms, and very, very few floods though. Nebraska has a high education system. In my opinion, Omaha is the best city there.

Nebraska is just for the rich farmers and do not care about the working poor. I know I was born there and now I am stuck in Columbus, Nebraska where there is only a Walmart, HyVee and Save Mart Store to shop in. What a disaster I wished I stayed In Lincoln, Nebraska because there were some Democrats there.

Glad to be from here. - EMan29

You can get to Philly in less than an hour, Baltimore, New York City, and DC in less than two hours, and Boston, Toronto, Virginia Beach, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and several other cities within eight or so hours of driving. Also, Joe Biden, Fight Club, and no sales tax. - ColinH

44 Indiana Indiana

People are nice, in Indianapolis, they have the #1 children's museum in the United States! Also, lots of sports and fun museums to go around! Even in the biggest metropolitan area in the state totaling at over 1.7 million, (Carmel-Indianapolis) prices for houses are very reasonable! Also, there are nice colleges, like Purdue University.

Affordable, friendly, and full of opportunity. You can afford a home easily, and apart from Gary and some parts of Indianapolis, most of the state is very safe. Taxes are reasonable and the overall cost of living is nice and low. And any time you want to take a road trip, it's easy - you're at the crossroads of America.

We have colleges, colts, Indianapolis and fort Wayne, and best of all CORN! So lets be honest everybody loves corn!

People are very friendly, cost of living is reasonable, lots of casinos and after having lived here the last couple of years, after living in 8 other states, MS 'image' is much worse than what it's really like here... I think it's got to be the most 'lied' about state in the nation.

48 Kansas Kansas Kansas is a U.S. state located in the Midwestern United States. It is named after the Kansa Native American tribe, which inhabited the area.

Kansas is a great place to live. We have nice, warm summers, and cold winters. The people here are also pretty nice. I've lived in Texas, California, and Kansas, and Kansas is by far the best place out of the three.

49 Arkansas Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

I got family down in Arkansas, the northern part is beautiful, lots of caves, wildlife, and crystal clear spring fed rivers, and their southern American culture still lives on like it has for the past century

Arkansas got that southern pride! Once you visit the southern delta of Arkansas, youll find true simple living! And a little of mamma's cornbread! THE SOUTH WILL RISE AGAIN!

50 West Virginia West Virginia

I can't believe this. I was born in Ohio. I lived there most of my life. Since then I've lived in West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, and I easily had the best experience in West Virginia.

What the heck?! West Virginia at last? THIS IS A DISGRACE! - Mooshroomsrock17

Pity vote. Is it that bad here?

Oh come on, WV is a great state the only flaw is that education isn't the best here & job opportunities are a little scarce but other than that WV is great, Much better than California.
