Beautiful is a lie, it's filled with dumb people destroying Trump stars because they lost 100 IQ points after changing sides - Maddox121

Obviously California is the most beautiful state on the planet. Always sunny, nice weather and nice place to be.

California is beautiful, but mostly artificially. Los Angeles, Burbank, San Francisco, Redding, and San Diego are just some of the great towns in California. The Golden State is definitely a top contender for the best in the Union, so YAY!

Just go to Venice Beach, the sunset is beautiful there. I even took a picture on my phone. - Pegasister12

2 Oregon Oregon Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Oregon is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by Washington, on the south by California, on the east by Idaho, and on the southeast by Nevada.

It's so great all the Californians are moving up here.

Why and how is California #1 and ahead of oregon

This place is so amazing can t wait to go back

Oregon is the best state in overall majesticnest. From the coast and the dunes to the deserts and mountains. Oregon is epic and think is better than Utah. I feel like this place should have more national parks though. Like here are some invented national parks that I think should be created: Columbia river islands national park, Columbia river estuary national park and Oregon basin national park. To be honest, I think crater lake is not a good national park. The lake is the deepest in the country but it is dead. There are zero native fish to the lake. Not many people visit this national park compared to Zion and Grand Canyon. I think Columbia river islands would be amazing. Like in the Columbia river there are those islands and they should be protected. Well overall Oregon should be number one and it is an amazing state. #columbia river islands national park!

Is this a joke? Hawaii is easily #1, with California at #2. After that I would maybe say Alaska. - ShuhBanggg

4 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.

Way better than Oregon. Oregon smells like paper factories.

You didn't mention the Olympic mountain range, and beautiful Mount Rainier.

Breath-taking beauty which includes the awe-inspiring green forests, spectacular mountains, the Puget Sound is the home of the mighty Orca whales. The flowers are bountiful, colorful and some aromatic. The national parks, waterfalls, hiking trails all are awesome. We love our
wild life and our pets. Our weather is free from hurricanes, deadly tornadoes and long cold winters. Washington state is gorgeous.

The best forests in the country unparalleled dramatic coastlines the cascade mountains are breathtaking rain forests islands marine mammals nice people too!

5 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 have lot gracier and mountains and desert and forest! We should make Montana first! How Calfiona is 1st place?!? It is hell place not beauftuil like Montana! Calfoiona should be least!

The most gorgeous US state by FAR. Just search up pictures of Montana. The scenery unbelievable. It's very mountainous and is comprised of many gorgeous lakes and meadows. Also, there's a ton of wildlife such as black bears, bison, bobcats, gray wolves, fox, deer, sheep, and much more. Montana is seriously a dream.

The reason why Montana is not number #1 is because most people are voting for their own state, California looks like hell on Earth, I don't understand how they are first place.

Just about every inch of montana is forest, lakes, or mountains. - Slovenija

6 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.

We have 17 out of the top 20 tallest mountains in America, over half of the worlds glaciers, more coastline than the rest of the US combined, we have North America’s largest oil field, we have America’s two largest forests, we have no plants that are poisonous to the touch, etc.

Alaska has nmany beautiful glaciers, and a lot of wildlife, and even seven national parks! - Slovenija

7 Arizona Arizona Arizona is a U.S. state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states.

Arizona is amazing the grand canyon, desserts, and other stuff is amazing!

Grand Canyon State

It has a lot of pretty landscaping

The Grand Canyon, Antellope Canyon, Desserts, Eastern Mountains, Meteor Crater, Sedona, Phoenix...

8 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.

Colorado should be #1 on every list. It's like California, Montana, Utah and Oregon combined, but better.

With so much to offer to anyone who wishes to explore, Colorado is the most diverse state when it comes to landscapes. There is no reason why it shouldn't be #1 on every list.

The most beautiful state is for sure Colorado

California is always the same and just gets boring. I went to Colorado on vacation and I am never leaving

9 Florida Florida

It's way too humid sometimes, old slow drivers rule the roads, and it has bipolar weather.

BUT it has such gorgeous beaches, the sand is white, the water is blue, the night life is stunning, the lights are bright, the music pumps to the rhythm of your heart, you feel the breeze and the sun hit you most of the day, it's just such gorgeous scenery. So much variety.

Florida > New York/Massachusetts

It's a great place with beautiful beaches and warm climate

Louisiana

Utah is THE most beautiful state. - NeroToolman

I live in Oregon, and I think Utah should be #1. It’s out of this world!

Its very scenic.

Utah is uber underrated and diverse, ranging from palms and red rocks in the south west, to some of the best skiing and impressive mountain ranges on earth to the north, to some of the most unearthly beautiful canyons, arches etc. in the desert all across the south.

The Contenders

11 Wyoming Wyoming Wyoming is a state in the mountain region of the Western United States. The state is the tenth largest by area, but the least populous and the second least densely populated of the 50 United States.

Cannot judge what this beautiful state has to offer by rushing through it on the InterState.
This state has to be explored off the beaten path to fully appreciate.

The Grand Teton National park is the most beautiful place I have ever seen

Most of this state is bland. The only beautiful part of the state is the northwest corner.

Wyoming is a very beautiful state, due to sparse population and large open spaces. Hell, Wyoming barely has more people than our nation's capital!

12 Tennessee Tennessee Tennessee is a state located in the southeastern United States. Tennessee is the 36th largest and the 17th most populous of the 50 United States.

18 Michigan Michigan

Why is Michigan placed so low? It's definitely one of the most beautiful states-- the prettiest I've seen and lived in.
At least it should be in the top 5.

We have beautiful lakes, beaches, historical forts, pine trees, sand dunes, ski resorts, definitive seasons, caves to explore, beautiful forests where deer run free, as well as awesome orchards and vineyards, to name a few,

Underrrated state! Michigan has so much natural beauty!
