The Top Ten

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

I cackled when I saw this. Hawaii is just another tourist trap, in reality. It's corrupt, underdeveloped and not cool at all. It's hot and humid very often, which is sometimes really fatal!

Beautiful, safe, full of wildlife and it feels like Asia, but with the comforts of the U.S.

My parents have been to hawaii and they love it they say it is beautiful and cool my dad and mom have been there for there honeymoon my dad has already been there one time before he got married and my mom has been there for her first time and it is really expensive there and unusual houses but that is what it makes the most recent state the most interesting

It is so cool like I wanna live there

10 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.

I am from here and I love it! But I noticed most people were commenting on the features like Grand Canyon, mountains, etc. This is very cool, but also notice that cities in Arizona like Phoenix are absolutely awesome. Most people think of Arizona as an undeveloped desert, but when you get into the city part of it, it is very similar to LA or Chicago just less skyscrapers and slightly smaller.

Wow! I jave lived in Arizona for my whole life! I t is amazing. So much mountains and canyons and deserts. It has a lot of Wild West features like the town of Tombstone. And the Grand Canyon is spectacular. If you have ever been to the Grand Canyon you know what I mean. It is the best of the best. I am so glad Arizona is on this list! It would even be better if it were higher. Another thing is education. Arizona has some of the best education in the US. Awesome, awesome, and awesome. If you are thinking about moving to a different state, Arizona is your best bet. Go AZ!

I hope I like it I will be moving there soon! I have a? Do u usually see snake and big spiders

I live here and there is so much to do and to love in this wonderful state and all my friends that come and visit love this state!

The Contenders

11 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.

Our state is a great place to go on vacation, and has many historic sites to visit, like fort sumter, the old charleston jail, and etc

It's amazing here! I've grown up here and I'd say it's the place to be. From our great outdoors to just staying inside to enjoy some country cooking! I love South Carolina

This place is probably one of the best places to go on vacation. There is always something to do in South Carolina. - HauntingStomper

It might be cool to see my cousins!

12 Georgia Georgia Georgia is a state located in the southeastern United States. It was established in 1732, the last of the original Thirteen Colonies.

Hitler was born here

Brith place of coke - Jabber

Georgia has the kindest people and it has all four regions. Its like a mini country with beaches, mountains, plains, and valleys all in one state. Plus there are big cities and small towns where everyone knows one another and takes care of each other. The house prices are great and the movie industry is growing extremely fast.It is also a great place to have a small business because it is easy to get your name around a small town. You often see movie stars walking around, The Walking Dead is filmed here (in Senoia) and it is a great place to live.

Ga has the great ability of having major cities and then a couple hours away redneck country. It's awesome.

13 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.

Ah yes, my home state. The lakes are beautiful, the winters can be long but they're fun f you get into skiing or snowmobiling. And there isn't a state with a better summer or fall. Minnesota also has more history than you might think. The north shore of Lake Superior is full of old fur trapping headquarters and Native American forts. The "little house on the prairie", of Laura Ingalls Wilder fame, is near the town of Walnut Grove, and there are historical markers all along the Great River Road, along the Mississippi in the southeast part of the state. Minnesota has also become very diverse racially and elected Keith Ellison, the first ever Muslim member of Congress. We were also the first state to vote against the "marriage is only between a man and a woman" resolution. So we're an historic state already, and becoming more so all the time.

There is a lake every square mile. There are more different fish species in Minnesota than any other state. People are very happy up here. We are used to the cold and can still go to work or school with a foot of snow without a problem. Very safe and the people are very friendly. We do not have very many big cities, which makes it a great place to come if you want to escape the concrete jungle for a while.

Minnesota should be at the top because of the cool sights!

I Live here and I LOVE it!

Best state ever!

Deleware is the first state. They are home to coasts to the Atlantic Ocean and historic site after historic site! My ancestors imigrated to deleware from Denmark in 1641 but they eventually moved to Indiana. Deleware deserves it's position on the top 20 states list.

15 Alabama Alabama Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west.

22 Indiana Indiana

I've lived in Indiana for three years, it's boring, it's so boring it makes the small southern country states look intelligent & interesting. Drinking & drugging are the past time, but the senior citizens love their corn fields & their old fashioned racists ways. I can't wait to get out of Indiana.

So, lived in many states, including NW Indiana. Most people who love it, never lived anywhere else. Favorite pastime: Drinking. Why, because there is nothing to do. I love the ocean, fresh seafood and snowcapped mountains. West Coast has it all. The only thing good about NW Indiana is that it's close to Chicago (yes, a different state). Not a fan KKK presents, either. Being partial to the Left Coast, I'm not used to these attitudes. The small towns name their business with K's to show Klan loyalty..Koby's Kuntry Kitchen and Klassy Karl's Kar-shop.
This isn't just a guess, I know this. Indianapolis is where the KKK originated. That said, I love the people have huge families that are very close. That's where all my extended family lives and for that reason, Indiana gets a pass from me!

Indiana is amazing if you love the contry it is corn feilds in north and giant hills in the south they have lovely camsites and nice cities such as Indianapolis, fort wayne, Noblesville, and bloomington

Honestly, how did Indiana make it on this list? I live in Indiana and let me tell ya, all we have is corn fields. No kidding. Indianapolis is pretty great I guess, but really!? Indiana is really nothing special.

23 Michigan Michigan

I think that Michigan is one of the most awesome states in the whole USA. Everyone thinks that Michigan is the most bad state in the USA because all of its bad cities like Detroit, Flint and etc. But what people really don't know is how awesome Michigan really is. I was born and raised in Michigan and sometimes I feel like everyone forgets that Michigan is the state that envented the car which is one of the most useful enventions in the world. Plus, Michigan has the great lakes which is 25% of the worlds fresh water storage. I think that people should stop and think twice about how America is so wraped up about Texas, Californa, Florida, and etc. People are really not getting that Michigan is a super tough place to live in and you will only know how to live in it if you were born and raised in Michigan. So that is really why Michigan did not get very high ratings, that people from other places just simpley do not know how to live in Michigan the right way.

Michigan is a unknown gem. Shoot, the Upper Peninsula alone would rank in the top 10. Beaches, rivers, lakes (big and small), wildlife and nice midwestern people make Michigan a special place.

Michigan has a lot of beautiful places but you have the worst governor in history in Snyder. Just ask the people of Flint.

Michigan is amazing and has many beautiful places, you just need to look.

28 Louisiana Louisiana

One of the most interesting places in the world. The food is amazing in Louisiana and New Orleans is one of the most beautiful cities of the US

The Creole and Cajun food culture along with the pure European architecture and atmosphere make Louisiana one of the most interesting states. If people do not put Louisiana(New Orleans is the Jewel) in their top ten, then they have not traveled.

I live here and the people are awesome along with the food and culture

It will be under water by the end of the century

It's the best place to call home; especially Western PA. Pittsburgh. Love, Love, Love it! People are the friendliest. Come visit us!

The potholes and I-95 make it fun. Also we have stereotypes with chemical apocalypses in the middle of nowhere.

Pennsylvania should be number 1 because I live here and pennsylvania is very interesting. In Hershey the street lamps are hershey kisses and if you into the south central part of the state it is amish country which has the best pretzels in the world. This should be number 1!

Pennsylvania is absolutely a beautiful place to live. It's a very historic sight, and the weather is different all year long. Pennsylvania is definitely the place to be.

Oh and almost forget visit Silver Dollar City it's so cool, although super cold during winter, still enjoyed.

I don't care for rappers or huge cities, but the Ozark Mountains are the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Great road systems, beautiful landscapes, and even though crime is high, the cities aren't entirely too big. Missouri is a very interesting place to live, especially in the mountains. - benhos

Interesting!

How can Alaska not be interesting? I mean, you do have Sarah Palin but she seems to be spending less and less time there, so Alaska is probably a lot less annoying...

Alaska is pure nature and beauty. Fishing, parties, snow fun, nice summers, most beautiful scenery out of all 50 states. Nicest people and small friendly towns

I'm gonna do a project on this.
