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.

It would be relaxing

My wife and I honeymooned there, and it is beautiful. The only downsides are it is expensive, there are many tourist traps, and the biggest negative is that it's so far away from everything and so hard to get there. Once you're there you'll have a wonderful time, but you have to save for it.

Hawaii is the prettiest state I have ever seen

Hawaii sounds lovely! I would love to see the landscape and to the Hawaiian language and music! - Jeanclaudejunior

2 Florida Florida

I love Florida, there's so much to do! And agreed, alligators are badass... But how did Indiana even get on the list? It's the most boring place ever, and that is a fact.

Disneyworld and loads of other parks like Seaworld and Universal Studios. Plus there is a ton of alligators there, and alligators are badass.

I live in Florida and sometimes I go to the beach and it's insanely fun, I like to bodysurf and your children (or you, your never too young I say) Can build sand castles, and overall it's cool, just remember "respect the ocean" if you go to far out and your not a really, REALLY good swimmer then the tides might wipe you out.

My home town let's go - BreakFastBeast2005

3 California California

It is my home state and I think it is a great place for every one because there is a huge verity of many different activities for anyone

I love California! There are so many sights to see!

I love California because it has the most palm trees, the most beautiful and the highways. California is great like New York. New York City is large like Los Angeles.

I've been to California and I really love it! I was thinking "Well, one day I might come back there" - Jeanclaudejunior

5 Texas Texas Texas is a state in the USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.

Texas has been under 6 flags: Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the CSA, and USA. Fascinating history!

And Texas is arguably the most cultured state, with the best BBQ, sports, and Texas-sized state pride, (bigger and better). Texas is extremely religious and Conservative, with pretty much only Austin being the only dominantly liberal city.

The Lone Star States has no state income tax- only on the local and federal level. Texas is business friendly and great for home owners.

Not to mention Texas is the only state to have a power grid that doesn't connect with other states and some of the largest oil reservoirs in the U.S.

Texas has deserts, giant metropolises, beaches, plains and even pine tree forests, giving everyone a place to visit. From Houston to Big Bend, or from the Alamo to the State Fair, the second largest state has a lot to offer.

Interesting? Of course. Look over there, there's a hurricane, and up there we have a blizzard and oh look a few tornadoes. Hope you don't mind those floods.

But seriously, Texas has a lot of interesting history and dozens of unique festivals and cities. We might not have the most original names for the cities, but Bacon and Orange are pretty funny to see on a map.

Just remember to be polite to those guys in the cowboy hats and boots because they almost always have a gun and they don't give warning shots.

I love Texas! It's hot so pack some cool clothes and head down there as soon as you can! It is a great place to go and be! You would love the state fairs and all of the events! Go Texas!

Then it becomes cold without warning. Then floods. After that, though, it's nice to see the sun afterwards. - MKBeast

Best state in us of A

Most interesting state as a world record!

It's the most unique state in the United States of America. Oh, and Washington D.C. is located withing Maryland's (and Virginia's) soil/land. And the most important of all of Maryland: Chesapeake Blue Crabs.

9 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

My dad lives there I would do anything to learn about that state

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.

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!

An awesome state

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.

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.

Redneck country? Wow, who could resist seeing a thousand Larry the Cable Guys running around?

I have been I when to vist my cousins that used to live in my town

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!

Cities are great! Duh, you can be near the cities and still enjoy the peace and quite by the lakes. We're great drivers and don't have as much road rage (people, take a darn chill pill! )! Lakes every where. You don't have to worry about wearing a coat in 60 degree weather; I mean come on people. Not to mention our activities! Skiing, for the winter, plenty of lakes to ice skate on, hockey dominates in Minnesota. Valley Fair - Nickolodean Universe - MOA - Lutsen Ski Hills (best in the Midwest). Great cities like St Cloud, Duluth, Redwing, and Waconia, no other place has that name look it up, we are one of a kind. Also we take pride in our state as well as we are nice. Best education, and hardly any poverty. And ok I understand Viking's and Twins are not the best, but you got to have faith and we love them anyway. - Herschy

Football hall of fame

18 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.

One of the best for tourist attractions

Beautiful mountains, gorgeous waters. Green and friendly.

Washington has the most beautiful land I have ever seen and Seattle(the biggest state in Washington)has the amazing space needle! I love the state of Washington so much!

21 Nevada Nevada Nevada is a state in the Western, Mountain West, and Southwestern regions of the United States of America.

Nevada has a city called Las Vegas that is large and has great hotels like planet Hollywood and most of Nevada is covered by dessert but at least is great.

Nevada contains some two of the most naughty and awesome cities to party DOWN! Las Vegas and Reno
Outside those two cities is nothing but endless majestic desert that feels like divine freedom, like you're riding through the old west.
Hands down underrated state.

I've lived in vegas my whole life 33 years, and hands down, the best place to visit,party,bring the kids, you name it we have something for everyone

Oregon has many interesting features, including the Oregon Trail

23 Michigan Michigan

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.

I live in here people think it's bad but it's good if you know how to live its good

Best place to be in the summer.

New Jersey has many beautiful spots, like sunfish pond a natural Glacier made lake, Pine Barrens, and much more

Whoa how is it so loow? THE BEACHES YES they're EVEN BETTER THEN SUNNY California'S!

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

31 Pennsylvania Pennsylvania Pennsylvania, officially the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a state located in the northern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.

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.

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

I was there once briefly, but I think Pennsylvania would be a very interesting state.

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

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.
