Best States in the U.S.A.bbbh
The Top Ten
Wait, California is a state? I thought it was, like, a foreign country or something
Even though Iowa is my home state I wish I lived here. - windowslottery
You have Los Angeles the best city in the world enough said

The Florida Man news makes it show how hilariously stupid some floridans are. And Family Guy also dissed this state. - Mattblue66
In my opinion, although I haven't been to Florida before, I think that it is an AMAZING state! It is similar to Disneyland, in France, which I've been to before. And it may possibly have beautiful beaches and cruises and it would definitely have many tourist attractions so that would be pretty awesome. This state is totally recommended to people who haven't been to it yet.
Eisner was here
Trash state full of the dumbest people to ever exist. If something stupid happens in any other state, it's probably fake. If it happens here, it is probably true.39 Comments
I am flabbergasted this state is second place woo hoo
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
LOVE THIS STATE
Never been her but it seems amazing - -Pikachu-22 Comments
Everything is literally bigger and cheaper here in Texas. Houses cost like half of what they are in California
The only USA state that is American
Texas is the best26 Comments
I know it seems too obvious to be true but come on, you all know that this state is the best. Literally nothing is wrong with it. Honolulu is overrated and its still one of the greatest cities of all time. Everything is perfection. Once you take your first step in Hawaii and take your first breath of tropical air, you will fall in love.
Has a lot of things to do such as going to amazing beaches. - HoldenFanatic14 Comments
The most fit state with the most sunshine. Activities and bike paths everywhere. Most people are decent drivers and the cost of living isn't that expensive. Everyone is moving here for a reason! Absolutely awesome state, especially if you enjoy many different kinds of weather. The liberal drug policies are also appealing to me and many other people, but hey if you don't wanna smoke weed nobody is making you. The flag is also very cool and clean looking. Mountains are beautiful. Doesn't get too hot or too cold for much of the year. Great schools and great careers. This is just a fantastic state all around. I can't think of one thing I honestly dislike about it. It's not liberal not conservative, but somewhere in the middle. It's just a great place to live. Great beer too. - 10Jackson
I live in brazil but I think colorado is a good state to live
Not really, I live here and it is extremely expensive and over-taxed on one hand, but there is a lot more crime than people realize, it is overflowing with tourists, there is really bad traffic, the cities are trash, and the mountains are constantly having forest fires, floods, and beetle killed trees.
It's a great place to visit but not the best place to live. - NapoleonBonaparte
This state is so fun my aunt and grandpa moved here from misery and I visit there sometimess and the mountians are cool the only problem is colombine
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!12 Comments
I live in Pa and there are tons of fun things to do here. We have hershey park, knoebels, dorney park, and so much more. There are some parts of Pa that can be bad but overall I love it here!
I lived here for a few years & It is ok. It has it's good & bad parts. The people we're very Close-Minded, Rude & Entitled when I first moved here in a small country town. Then I went to Philly & the people came off Lively, Hard-Working & Accepting. It has good & bad people. I got a chance to see both. - chronicpack
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. - CRK1015 Comments
Lezzgo washington. West coast best coast. - elpy
Washington is the best state to live in there are so many beautiful things to see and the wildlife is amazing a beautiful capital building and the beautiful lakes and rivers + all the forests and mountains truly make Washington the best state.
Washington’s the best state because of land diversity.
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?4 Comments
Illinois is the best state mainly because it has one of the biggest farming industries in the U.S alongside Nebraska. Illinois was the first state to ratify the 13th amendment to abolish slavery. Illinois is also a leading producer in corn, soy beans, and swine. The state of Illinois houses more than 74,600 farms at 357 acres.It has a vast variety of soils which means you'll be able grow and plant many crops. Presidents such as Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, and Uslysses S Grant, all come from Illinois. Lastly if you are in to finance illinois is your number 1 pick
I love downtown Chicago! (Besides all the crazed up chig. weather of course) if you're afraid of racism come live here, we're a complete democratic state and very peaceful and nice people so don't worry at all!
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 gods10 Comments
Minnesota is pretty cool
The best state ever
The best state! Come to the great north!
I love Minnesota12 Comments
I love it here!
I'm a Bostonian and I can tell you that Massachusetts,New York, California, Washington and Connecticut are the best and best educated states. - girly-dog-girl
Massachusetts Squad where you at?!
-Has Boston one of America's finest cities
-One of the strongest economies in the country
-The top 2 universities in the world MIT and Harvard
-Largest mall in new England (Natick mall)
-First state to legalize gay marriage
-Lots of history
-close to New York City
-#1 in education in U.S. and #8 in the world
-One of the wealthiest stages
-Valentines cards, birth control, and basketball were invented in Massachusetts
-Thanksgiving originated here
-one of the greenest and healthiest states
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.
All the history, amazing food, beautiful views, what more do you want? It's sadly being corrupted by some, (So many military people, and so many northerners) but you can thank this state for the best presidents and more.
We have DC and so many presidents are from here
IT IS THE BEST! We have the Jefferson's House and Washington's Too!
All about the clam chowder!
I love this state, better than job snatching Virginia - jackson734367
They have wonderful clam chowder7 Comments
It is an amazing state
It's cold out here, and I like it - Kaledrone
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
The people here are ultra-friendly. +1! - tropicaljay4 Comments
Let's get this above Maine
So nice... Central Ohio has some of the biggest houses you will ever see. We have great education, and are learning concepts most learn in adult years. by the way... California is overrated!
Ohio is the best we have 2 football teams and have the best soil for growing food we also have the Appalachian mountains which are beautiful and Cincinnati has kings island and in Sandusky cedar point and we have the first person on the moon and Putin bay. beat that.
Beautiful love it hear steam valleys look up hocking hills state park9 Comments
The king of rock was born their, T.V. show, and tennessee whisky
It has the wiliamson county fair
Tennessee is awesome. I just think woke people are to lazy to come to Tennessee. Tennessee is fabulous. - ninja1227106 Comments
No sales tax and just about 24/7 perfect weather
No sales tax
OREGON IS JUST THE BEST, ALL STATES HIGHER HAVE TERRIBLE AIR AND TREES, AND ARE SUPER POLLUTED, AND OREGON IS GREAT!
Lots of snow. Oregon has the best rain and gardens. It's great!1 Comment
My home state is definitely my favorite 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!
Lakes In Summer
Flagstaff In Winter.
Most underrated one
people think that there's nothing
but it's one of the most beautiful states - Zalgiris
This place is so cold that people would have a hard time adapting to living here. - JoeBoi
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 weather2 Comments
I am from Michigan and it's not so bad. Well, except for the Flint water crisis. - Mattblue66
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.3 Comments
Sexiest state ever.
Its an amazing state honestly... real pretty and the dells is so much fun!
I live in a small town but lots of fishing and huntig really great
Wiscansin and proud yo12 Comments
Awesome state! Great camping and scenery! - VGCI_Plays
What a beautiful state!
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.
Someday I will get out of Nebraska and come here. Mark my words!2 Comments
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!
The best state to live in!5 Comments
I LOVE IT HERE! There are great national parks, lagoon, fan x, a TON of concerts, hikes, lakes, and so much more! It's beautiful!
Awesome skiing, scenery, and national parks, successful economy, hardworking people.
Utah gang yeeett4 Comments
It has everything and its not top 5?!?!
KFC and the Kentucky Wildcats
I live in and was born in Louisville and how is this not top 3? Muhammad Ali, KFC, And 2 straight NCAA Championships from Kentucky.
P.S GO CARDSS
I like how South Carolina is right below North Carolina on this list, just like it is on the map.
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!
Nothing could be finer than being in Carolina...
I vote this because I live here down side is that the weather is about equal to Death Valley's temp
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!
Obviously the best state4 Comments
Should be named idahoe. Cool cause of that only.
Montana in my opinion is the most underrated state, and it is beautiful!
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. - ninja1227101 Comment
New Jersey sucks
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)
NJ is the best state peoples
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!9 Comments
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
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 crazy bad weather no jobs NOTHING
It's more than Las Vegas or Reno here in Nevada. Area 51 is located in Nevada!
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.
1 word: Vegas
Las Vegas really makes Nevada popular. If you go there you at least come home with $100.1 Comment
As an Alabamian, I have to say that I love my state! Sure, some people are mean and racist, but you have to understand that not everyone who lives there is. The traffic and construction could be better, but overall, it's a pretty great place. I love my state! - PandasNGaga
Worst state. Very racist. Especially in the 60s
I was going to make an incest joke, but Alabama itself fits that description 💀 - harrymfuess
Best state in the US3 Comments
So under rated this should be at least be in the top five NH for life!
Best state I lived in.
Boy number one! Or at least five3 Comments
Wyoming does not exist
You thought Wyoming was real now scroll back up
Has the Yellowstone National Park
Ik this state doesn’t exist but I feel like it’d be the best if it did1 Comment
I live here and you don't get more culture than South Dakota. There is Mount Rushmore, The Sioux river, Lots of legends of outlaws, and great state parks. 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
More wars and history than any other state, not to mention Crazy Horse and Rushmore. This state has everything, except for fame apparently
Great colleges! Amazing, clean cities to live in! People are also very friendly!
Since I live here I feel obligated to vote for it... But it's not that bad..
I only voted this cause I’ve lived here half my life.
Yuh Oklahoma, 47th worst state on the news, 34th best state on the top tens.
Oklahoma, though forgotten, has the some of the nicest people I've met. They have 'big' cities and lots of traffic, but aren't rude like in other places and are patient.
People say Oklahoma is boring and has way too many tornadoes. Okay how does that even make sense? How could you be bored during a tornado? At least Oklahoma isn’t a state that has erosion issues (California) or a state that calls you racist for simply saying the word “black” (New York).
Best state because slipknot - X4AJ
Provides food for the whole world. Mile after mile of corn fields. Lots of pigs and cows.10% of the countries food is from Iowa. WHAT WOULD WE DO WITH OUT IT! - cfb
Is it not surprising that the most polulus states are ranked high in the in polls.
Iowa rocks so shut up. the whole state doesn't smell I would know3 Comments
One word: Oil. - X4AJ
Quiet, cold, and beautiful. So much to do in North Dakota!
Thank you this is probably the first thing I hear something postive in this godforsaken website
I'm born in North Dakota
North Dakota is the best state in the us people are kind and friendly, we have the best economy in the u.s since we are the biggest producers in wheat barley corn bean and many other crops since 90 pecent of our land is farms and oil rigs. withought us the u.s would loose 4000 nukes and would loose the b-52 bomber. and were are argueably the most beautiful state in the u.s with thedore roosevelt national park.
I've been to New Orleans, and it was so much fun! I don't think I would live in New Orleans, but it's such a fun place to visit! - PandasNGaga
Food is good.
"Kentucky, LOUISIANA and... "
Go to the New Orleans Marriott on Canal Street!
They have the best binyet's there.
#39? It's so much better than California!
It is a beautiful state and the state to have the most culture, really neat and awesome state. Beautiful time for hiking
Stop criticizing New Mexico, it's a nice, unique place.
Nice and warm weather is just what we need.
Even though it is expensive it is very good with the school systems and has lots of trees
This would have been higher. It’s the most underrated state. Middletown is always the best.
There is so much to love about Connecticut.
It's great mainly because of it's proximity to better places. 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
Rhode Island should defiantly be much higher than this. Yes it is small but that means I can get to the beach, the city, the mountains or a body of water in under 15 minutes. We have all 4 seasons and not many states have that. Who wants to be sweating 24/7 in Florida. Or freezing your butt off in Maine. Not to mention fall is gorgeous with all the different colored leaves. Plus we have things that others states don’t have (which are great) like coffee milk and dels. So Rhode Island should defiantly be higher on this list
48? Rhode island is a nice looking state, I bet this is way at the bottom because its tiny. Don't judge on the size!
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!
Indiana is the second largest producer of ice cream...
Has lots of country rural areas...
Has some of the best hospitality in the world...
But who can say no to ICECREAM...especially indiana's hommade!
Mississippi is a state in the South of the United States of America. Most of its western border (with Arkansas and Louisiana) is the mighty Mississippi River. Tennessee lies to the north and Alabama to the east, and it has a small coastline on the Gulf of Mexico to the south. - chronicpack
Just because it has a bad flag doesn't mean it's bad. California's 100 times worse! - Maddox121

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.
I’m from southwestern Kansas, so the weather where I live is different from most of the state, but we generally get warm summers and quite mild winters (rarely gets below 40 degrees Fahrenheit). Contrary to popular belief, tornadoes here are quite rare. In the 12 years of living here, I’ve never seen one, and only have gotten a warning once. Sure, the landscapes are pretty boring but there are some nice hilly, rocky, thick forests in the southeastern regions. On top of that, living here if very cheap.
There are farms and crap, it’s below zero in the winter and over 100 in the summer. There’s like only one nice city and everything else is rural crap. I mean there are sunflowers and a mountain that isn't even a mountain. I mean we have some good BBQ in KC but western Kansas is boring. The sports teams are decent but they’re technically in MO. Plus it’s flatter than a pancake.
Arkansas is very cheap. Check CNBC.
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!
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.
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.
What the heck?! West Virginia at last? THIS IS A DISGRACE! - Mooshroomsrock173 Comments
