This use to be a friendly place, but it isn't anymore. We have a lot of people retiring here from California. Yuck.
The people here are so friendly. If you ask someone for directions, they will help out and sometimes drop want they're doing to help. I have never met a rude person. People will always hold the door open for you. It's the little things
Oklahoma has the friendliest people hands down! Everyone is happy and outgoing. I'm amazed at how friendly everyone is here I've lived here for five years and traveled all over the USA and have yet to meet people friendlier than Oklahomans.
Very friendly people.
South Dakota should be at the top, I'm from Minnesota, and I can't walk five feet without someone stopping me asking for a photo, or striking up a conversation with me. They are definitely not shy and very extreverted
I lived in Kansas for 20 years, had traveled a lot, and had never met anyone anywhere in the country with such self-infatuation. People openly bragged about themselves, used zero manners, and exhibited the paranoid-Christian conservative white mentality that put Donald Trump into the White House. (How did Hillary lose Arkansas)?
I've never lived in Kansas but I have visited many times and have never met a rude person
Friendly small communities
I grew up in Utah and didn't fully appreciate how amazing the people are until I moved elsewhere. I have travelled all over the USA and Europe. I lived in Michigan, Ohio and Ireland and I can tell you that Utah is the friendliest and most beautiful place to be anywhere.
Utah is definitely the friendliest state! I live there and the people are the best and so loving to each other
The Norman's were very nice people
People always are smiling and ready to lend a hand.
Southern hospitality has nothing on Wisconsin.V 1 Comment
A lot of transplants from the northeast and upper Midwest who, after living her for a while, loosen up and smile and talk. Small town, inland Florida is very, very friendly.
I moved from pa to florida and loved it. I wish I never came back to pa. Every one in florida are supper nice and their is a lot to do.. Best state ever! I plan to move back one day...
South Florida does not have nice people. I was born in Oregon and now I'm 13 and live in Florida. I don't like it.

Most of us you can get along with, but some people are bad. But don't every state has some bad people right? - funnyuser
I am from Canada and I meet a guy from Ohio and he's really friendly.V 1 Comment
People in North Dakota are very friendly! They are also sweet and caring.
Southern hospitality is real and people are always willing to help someone in need. I love the coastline and the beautiful sunsets matches the beautiful hearts they have.
People are down to earth and everyone treats you like family
Everyone here is nice. Very down to earth.
Nebraska is culturally and demographically very similar to Iowa so I have no idea how it ended up #34 and Iowa #1.
I'm from California and this is one of my favorite states because of how nice the people are. I don't know why it's all the way down here.
I love nebraska!
I've lived in West Virginia for most of my life---briefly in Virginia and Delaware. It's been my experience to hear from many that have moved into our state that the people of West Virginia are amazingly friendly. As a teacher, when new students arrived, they felt quite welcome. We are very friendly, and we're there for our neighbors! We should be number 1!
I live here and I've heard a lot of comments on how friendly we are. I'm surprised we didn't make the top ten!
I've been to a lot of other states, but I'm from here. In my opinion, we are the friendliest state.
The people In New Orleans are the nicest and so friendly!
This should be higher, a little bit of southern hospitality.
I left my fiance after moving there with him so he could be near his family. It was because of the people. Even his friends were unfriendly. Worst & rudest I've ever encountered.
The people here were amazing and are always willing to help you out when you run into troubles.
Every Michigander I've met was amazing, really nice and friendly
A really nice state. A'lot of amazing people from there.V 2 Comments
Arkansas is misunderstood in many ways, and generally ignored, so I'm not surprised the down home friendliness of its residents is being overlooked yet again.
I hate Maryland; horrible people and a horrible state.
I lived in Takoma Park, it's called as a joke the people 's republic, and it was an OK place. some community feeling. people were reserved, some made an effort to be neighborly. a place for faux hippies who drive VW's to congregate. very liberal. used to have a nice used bookstore, some decent food, had a co-op. bedroom community outside of washington, dc. overall md seemed unfriendly to me, but I can only speak for that particular area. people just leave you alone. racially mixed, high crime area towards the end of Flower Avenue as you move into Silver Spring and the Langley Park area. founded by the seventh day adventists, very narrow streets. was a funky place back when I lived there in the late 90s through the mid-00's.
Sure, there's good old southern hospitality, but I'm surprised the "Aloha State" isn't on many lists. Hawaii is home to warm, friendly people, and if you look beyond the giant tourist industry, the locals are among the most welcoming people in the world.
Eh, Hawaii's more of a wildcard, well at least where I live in, Oahu. Some locals will treat the tourists with disdain, while others will look as presentable as they can for the tourists. The rude toward Honolulu locals and Westerners part is Leeward Oahu, they could also attack at any moment. Big Island is friendlier than Oahu, and Maui too likely.
Lived in Idaho for about a year and that was enough, moved back to Minnesota
