The Top Ten
California California is a state in the Southwestern United States. With 39.6 million residents across a total area of about 163,696 square miles (423,970 square kilometers), California is the most populous U.S. state and the third-largest by area.

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!

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

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

It's so buituful I love it it's very pretty and amazing I have a friend there and she says it's lovley California deserves to be number 1

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

It's simply magical. The views are breathtaking. Has everything life has to offer. So much culture and love for nature

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

WOW Hawaiis not number 1.? It's ssooso beautiful that says enough

So buatiful

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.

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!

I just drove from Phoenix, AZ to Seattle, WA. I was taken aback by Oregon. I've driven to NY from AZ several times taking both the northern and southern route. I must say Oregon is the most beautiful state I have ever seen by far. So much so I'm writing this post, something I've never done before. I just can't get over the natural beauty of this state! Absolutely breathtaking! My 16 year old son even took notice and put down his computer. Now that's beauty!

Oregon is surrounded with beautiful mountain valleys and the cleanest us city portland Oregon it was voted to have the best state parks and has various tourist attractions such as, Crater Lake, painted hills, Diamond lake, multnomah falls, The gorge and Oregons unique coast line. There is many other beautiful things about Oregon if u don't beileve me come see for yourself

I think Oregon is more beautiful than California, Florida and Arizona.

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.

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.

I'll never forget my first time to the Mt Baker National Forest. Those mountains are simply breathtaking. I have been to the Sierra Nevadas, and while they are beautiful, the Cascades take the cake. Not to mention Puget Sound. Seattle has to be one of the most beautiful major cities in the country.

Washington State is by far The Most Beautiful State in the U.S. containing The Most Beautiful Trees and Flowers, snow capped Mountains, Islands, Coast line and Desert,and Wonderful Ranches,Beautiful Scenery, so much to offer within a State... Colorado State being a very close 2nd is another Beautiful State...

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

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!

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.

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.

Utah is THE most beautiful state.

Its very scenic.

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

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!

It has a lot of pretty landscaping

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

Grand Canyon State

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.

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.

Absolutely gorgeous state. I have lived all over the US and Colorado is the most gorgeous in my book. Hawaii and states in the PNW are also gorgeous, but there's something refreshing about the Rocky Mountains.

My beautiful centennial state should be higher. There’s a variety of different terrain. To the east, there’s the plains. Near the middle, the gorgeous Rockies. To West, a more deserty area. I have always been drawn to the mountains though. When I lived in Denver, I would see them in the distance. It’s a great place for nature lovers and people like me who like nice views

Colorado is a breathtaking state with mountains every where, cool winters warm summers happen! Deserves #1

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

As someone who can spell beautiful correctly, this state is the absolute most beautiful state in the United States.

California is beautiful, but you can’t afford to see any of it (the time or the money). The people are miserable, there’s no sense of community, and the state want some you to be poor.

As a staunch conservative living here against my will (parents moved here about a decade ago), I can’t wait to save up enough money to move our construction business to Montana. Hopefully I won’t be chastised for coming from a backwards state. Anyways, aside from the political discussion, the absolute beauty and the sense of peace you get in Montana is unparalleled.

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.

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!

Florida Florida is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. Florida is the southeasternmost U.S. state, with the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.

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.

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

Florida > New York/Massachusetts

The Contenders
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.

Has anyone seen the Tennessee mountains before? Breathtaking!

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.

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!

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

I so dang love Wyoming. Should be on top three. Too bad I live in NC.

Idaho Idaho is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. Idaho is the 14th largest, the 39th most populous, and the 7th least densely populated of the 50 United States.

Idaho should be above Wyoming, what an injustice

Maine

This is everything beautiful that Oregon has, except it's the entire state. Mean has more coast, exponentially more lighthouses and real winter.

The forests in Maine are better than in Washington state.

Maine in fall winter spring and summer is beautiful

Georgia Georgia is a state located in the southeastern United States. It was established in 1732, the last of the original Thirteen Colonies.
Rhode Island Rhode Island, officially the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, is a state in the New England region of the United States.

Why is Michigan placed so low? It's definitely one of the most beautiful states-- the prettiest I've seen and lived in.

Underrrated state! Michigan has so much natural beauty!

18?! The Great Lakes are so beautiful!

All the New England States are breathtakingly beautiful!

North Carolina North Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, Virginia to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

Come on, North Carolina's got everything you could want: incredible beaches with landmarks, such as the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, tallest in America, big cities such as Charlotte and Raleigh, and the highest mountains in the Eastern U.S.A, with breathtaking views from Blue Ridge Parkway. Should be at least in the top 10!

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

Maryland is the most beautiful state ever! That's awesome! California is not the most beautiful state! That's awesome!
