The Top Ten

1 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. The state capital is Sacramento, and the largest city is Los Angeles. more.

Coming from the God-awful, ultra oppressive State of Utah... I'd have to say generally the friendliest people I've met are in California... Specifically the greater Bay Area. Sure, there are rotten humans everywhere... but Californians just seem to be upbeat, positive, and accommodating. Even those who are "rude" - or seem to be - are nice compared to Utahans. Culturally California is the exact opposite of Utah. - relicto_leuitas

california is the place to be man - Okami

2 Florida

Always the best temperature! I was there recently and there were so many options! It is a place for everyone!

3 Oklahoma

Anybody is Welcome to this gorgeous state! The only thing that isn’t nice here, is out weather.

Where I was born! - Untildawn8

4 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.

Coming from the horrible State of Utah, I would have to agree that people here are very pleasant. Would like to move here but the weather is very cold in winter. - relicto_leuitas

They don't call it Minnesota nice for nothing! Personally; I think that's an oxymoron!

Minnesotans are too nice to vote for themselves, so I'll vote for them.

5 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 better than California because the people there are nice plus California is overrated they are just a bunch of snobs who need makeup to look pretty - Jaeden29

6 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.

It is such a nice state nice people and when I was out camping these nice people said if they wanted a bag of chips because they had too much

Everyone's so nice there!

7 Maine

Not in the Lewiston Auburn area, I lived there for 14 years. People asked why I moved here. I spoke to a doctor, a chimney doctor and a store salesman at a home center, they mentioned if you are not from here, they will not have anything to do with you. Friendliness along the coast.

Everyone in Maine is nice. It's like Canada but good.

8 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.

The only mean people in Tennessee are the people passing through Tennessee.

23 Missouri Missouri is a state located in the Midwestern United States. It is the 21st most extensive, and the 18th most populous of the fifty states.

That may just be my opinion, but at least I can state it with true facts that I didn't make up.
