Top Ten Nicest U.S. States


The Top Ten

1 California California

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 Florida

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

3 Oklahoma Oklahoma

Where I was born! - Untildawn8

4 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.

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

5 Maine 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.

6 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. V 1 Comment
7 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.

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.

8 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.

Yes my state is in here - wren6

I love this state, people are nice to everyone. I'm glad to be Washingtonian. GO Washington

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

If you're on the coast or in Big Bend National Park, you're in one of the most beautiful spots on Earth. - Chickenlegs

I live in Texas.

10 Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska is a state that lies in both the Great Plains and the Midwestern United States. Its state capital is Lincoln.

Nebraskans, the corn-shuckers we are, are very nice and pleasant to be be around. - dureckl
