Top Ten Most Popular U.S. States

Georgia NEVER receives the credit they deserve! We are home to Coca-Cola (America's if not the world's favorite drink), Delta (Atlanta's airport isn't the busiest for no reason. What cracks me up even more is how people want to say Florida is so much better, yet everyone forgets that they won't be going to the beach nor all the "great attractions" every day unless they have won the lottery or can afford to do those things all the time. Perfect for vacation, but living? Not so much not to mention their messed up laws (Zimmerman and Casey Anthony ring a bell? ). Also, not only do we have beaches (even though they might not be as great as Florida's or Cali's, but a beach is a beach right? And the Carnegies, Rockefellers, and Vanderbilt's also thought our beaches were pretty special), we also have Atlanta (what many consider as the Capital of the South and the Hollywood of the South! ), and we have some of the most beautiful mountains (Appalachian Mountains! ). Oh yeah and we also have a ...more
Georgia has anything one could want. The ocean, big cities, tall, beautiful mountains & flat country land. Not to mention southern hospitality from the natives. Georgia should definitely be in the top 10 & I was very surprised to see that it wasn't. With a growing population, becoming the 9th most populous state, I think there's millions that would agree with me.
georgia is a mix of the south and the city! its awesome. GO Atlanta!

I think Michigan is one of the most underrated states out there, and it's a shame it gets a bad wrap as being a violent and rough state. Sure we have Detroit, a city which is struggling badly, however if you ever visit Detroit you'll realize it holds an incredible sense of pride. A sense of pride many thriving cities would kill for. But regardless of your opinion on Detroit's current status there's a lot more going in Michigan than Detroit. Michigan is quite unique for handful of reasons, Firstly the lower peninsula is one of, if not the most recognizable states from outer space... It looks like a mitten. Secondly we're just about the only state which is made up of two separate land masses (the Lower Peninsula and the UP (upper peninsula)) separated by the great lakes. I'm always amazed at how many people don't realize Michigan has two parts, and that they are connected by the Mackinac Bridge. The Mackinac Bridge is so underrated it kills me, I mean the thing is 26,000 feet long, it ...more
I don't see why people think Michigan is a death trap. Other than a few areas it is an ideal place to live. I have lived there for all 14 years of my life and I love it here. You get to experience all kinds of weather no matter what you like- snow, sun, rain, fog, etc. Although it has been a joke my whole life how it can rain for like 2 minutes and then stop for like 15 days and then come back. It would be like 30 degrees all week but on Wednesday it would be like 65 and then it would go back to 30s. And what we say when that hapenns is- " It's Michigan weather! " laugh out loud I love it here.
Amazing state for pretty much all seasons. We have the Great Lakes and are the only state with two masses bringing us into one. Only state that actually looks like something: a mitten. Sometimes called the Wolverine State even though there are no more wolverines in the state. Great golf courses and great for hunting and fishing. When people think of Michigan they think of Detroit and the crime, but that's not who we are. We have some of the most amazing views in the country and some of the nicest people. Home of Faygo, Ford, Coney Islands, and General Mills Cereal. Kid Rock, Enimen, Madonna, and more came from here. You can cross right over to Canada from Detroit. Amazing colleges such as University of Michigan and Michigan State. Home of the Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, and Pistons. Besides Detroit and Flint, it's a relatively clean and safe state. Perfect place for a nice relaxing weekend in cities like Traverse City.
I love living in Michigan because it is one of the most reconizable states along with florida it is amazing - YoshiAppleV 110 Comments
Not many people come here cause the states kind of abandoned and the population I think is shrinking but they have great places and attractions like Theodore Roosevelt national park and the badlands and Dakota zoo
Very cool place with great people. The Badlands Is one of the most beautiful places on earth. And I have traveled extensively abroad.
This is like one of those Chinese cities that exists but nobody lives in.
Great placeV 8 Comments
Think about all the replicas in Las Vegas. There's the Statue of liberty, the Sphinx, a castle, a pyramid (Witch is behind the Sphinx.), and my favorite, the Eiffel tower! I went to this one with my family. YOU WILL BE SO AMAZED!
Las Vegas is awesome
Nevada is so much more than Sin City. Our mountains, Lake Tahoe, Fly geyser, the glacier nobody seems to talk about, I'm sad Nevada doesn't get more attention then it already does. The scenery is so beautiful and is rich in history. Please come to Nevada! We're much more than Las Vegas!
I live here, lots of hookers, drugs. The city is pretty nice if you are lucky enough to not get shot on the strip. its great hereV 15 Comments
4 beautiful seasons! Real MAPLE SYRUP... Foliage!
Vermont is a very historic state. It should at least be in the top ten.
Four distinct and gorgeous seasons, laid back attitude, fantastic maple syrup, quaint, rustic, a small population spread out among cute historic towns and villages, CLEAN, and one of the most oce-friendly and aware spots in the country. The people are generally very excepting of everyone, and the state is a wonderful place to raise kids and have a family. Crime is quite low compared to other states, the school systems are top ranked and VT is consistenly ranked smartest state in the country. The environment is fantastic! I am a huge fan of Vermont!
It is the safest state and has lots of nature to exploreV 5 Comments
Maine has the best views and lakes you have ever seen. Maine is proven to have the cleanest water in the USA, and Maine is Vacationland for every person, and makes California and Florida look cheap.
The beginning of this summer I went to Rockland with my family to visit our cousins for like 3-4 days. We did so much there, like eat a crap ton of fried shrimp and go hiking to a light house. I wanna go back - Idiot
Beautiful beaches breathtaking landscapes its an adventurers paradise indeed! Been to each and every state in the usa twice or more and I think its safe to say that Maine IS THE BEST OF THEM ALL
Dude maine is better than most of the states or the list below 25thV 12 Comments
Maryland truly is a great state, with lots of things to do here. There are mountains, beaches, rural areas, suburban areas, as well as farms! We have all four seasons, with not to cold/hot weather. If you are looking for a place to raise children, there is amazing schools in the area! Personally, I think Maryland is underrated as a 'Blue Crab Loving' state, while there is so much more then fishing in the Chesapeake Bay. ; )
Maryland is an awesome place to live and visit! I definitely recommend coming here at least once during your life!
Despite the eye-sore flag, Maryland is a beautiful place with wonderful people. But what will really catch your eye is the official sport -- Jousting ;)
Aside from that, Maryland is blessed with all four seasons, unlike California which only has one: summer. But in Maryland you can truly capture the essence of autumn, winter, summer, and spring. A great state.
Md should be higher up that utah for sure. I think md is relevantV 55 Comments
Undeservedly sidelined state - plenty of fantastic natural landscapes to go and see, the large city of Albuquerque and smaller, cultural cities like Santa Fe, great history involving Spanish, Mexican and native influence on the land, a vibrant array of local foods, and the West epitomised through Western movies (and their historical basis), Route 66 and the development of the atomic bomb in more recent times.
One of the most culturally diverse states due to its Hispanic and indigenous influence, and benefiting from snowy mountains, arid desert and pine forests, without the oppressive heat of Arizona or the freezing winters further north. More down-to-earth people than the city dwellers of California, but not as backward as the stereotypical Southerner.
New Mexico definitely has something for everyone - it is the Land of Entrapment!
This state is awesome! WHY IS New Mexico'S POPULATION 2,000,000! IT SHOULD BE AT LEAST BE 5,000,000 OR 6,000,000! Albuquerque is AWESOME! There are lots of cool stores and restaurants and toy stores and a nice balloon fiesta and a tramway that goes up to the mountain. You will LOVE New Mexico I guarantee! There are grasslands here!
The reason why this is low because people think New Mexico is just all plain desert and nothing and too hot, yes it is a little hot but it's not boring at all, there's balloon festivals, and lots of scenery and actually there is white sand!
I LOVE NEW MEXICOV 12 Comments
I live in Oregon and I love it! There are mountains everywhere (my favorite being Mt Hood. ) The water quality is very good and the air is fresh. The Oregon coast is a very beautiful place to go year round.
Oregon is awesome I really want to go back and visit with the beautiful beaches and awesome seafood. I would definitely recommend a trip there. I have a sibling and she lives in a apartment that is beautiful but it is expensive, not that I would know but it is perfect for 1 or 2 people. Overall Oregon is great.
Oregon is terrible. There are gorgeous beaches and snow capped mountains. There are green forests and great towns. There are forward-thinking creative people. There is great food and wonderful music. But it's terrible. Don't go there. You don't want to spoil it.
Oregon is dank. Oregon should be #1 on the list because Oregon is lit.V 52 Comments
Kansas is probibly the nicest place I have ever been. The people in Kansas are so nice and thoughful. I love it here so much, I don't know if I ever what to leave this place. Come and you will now how great it is here. The climate here is the best, hot in the summer and cold in the winter. I am never going to leave!
At least better than Nebraska
The wonderful land of oz!

I'm British, but have cousin who reside in Rhode Island so have visited a lot. It's a great state, great people who are a pleasure to talk to, lovely beaches, tons of rich American history, and Providence and Newport are charming cities with a great vibe. The weather can be a pain in the arse sometimes, but overall, for such a small state it has a lot to offer. I'll be here all day if I had to say all things I love about the state.
Rhode Island not just a place with beaches THE place with beaches!
When I was driving back home from New Hampshire I decided to stop at RI because it was pretty much on the way so I figured why not right? I went to a chinese place and then visited the area in Warwick where the station nightclub fire happened. I took a picture of the place where they are planning the memorial. I gotta go back and see it. Also the beaches here are amazing - Idiot

Kentucky is one of the most pleasing states I have ever visited. It has beautiful landforms and a lot of interesting places to visit like the KFC center, mammoth cave, etc. If you live in a different state I recommend visiting Kentucky. I originally was born in California which by the way is 1 right now on this list but I visited Kentucky in the summer of 2012 and I just fell in love with the state so I choose to move to Kentucky and now it is 2014 and I never doubt my decision
While I was born and raised in Kentucky, and may be a bit biased, I have to say that it's the most comfortable, wonderful state I've ever lived in (and I've lived in a few). There is so much culture and personality to it, especially in its central area, and so many people underrate it!
No one realizes what a beautiful place Kentucky is. It's a beautiful place! It's wonderful! I hate to see Kentucky the 43th state. I wish someone could promote it up a level. At lest 1 level up (to 42th place).
Bretty cool - Dave346V 21 Comments
I was born and raised in Baldwin County and proud of it. Beautiful place. I live in Magnolia Springs, one of the only places in the world where you can get mail delivered by boat. It has an interesting background. I love to go fishing in the rivers by my self sometimes. No cars, no noise, just the sounds of nature. And one of the most important facts about my state, BEST SWEET CORN EVER! And I don't mean that canned up stuff shipped off somewhere, I mean freshly picked, corn on the cob. I'm an Alabama country girl and have no shame in it!
A state with incredibly beautiful coast line and mountains, mild winters, richly varied cities, and most of all, a deep and compelling history and story, sometimes very dark, but other times truly uplifting.
I was born and raised in Alabama, in the Lee/chambers county area for 13 years before moving here. To Texas, I mean. I lived with the rednecks of auburn and Beauregard. And so what if everyone's a meth addict there. Just one more reason not to breath while your there, am I right? But I am very homesick right now, so I choose Alabama the beautiful for number 1 on this list.

Very underrated! Yes the winter is cold, but the other 3 seasons are pretty nice. In the east you have Sioux Falls, a modern and growing city, only about 4 hours from Minneapolis. Out west you have the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, etc. The Black Hills are one of the lesser known, yet stunningly beautiful mountain ranges anywhere. Check out the Needles, Custer State Park, and Sylvan Lake, then tell me I'm wrong. Add to that friendly people, and no income tax, and you have a great place to live or visit.
What how is it this far down this place is amazing the have the black hills Mount Rushmore badlands wall drug amazing mountains and landscape and wildlife so underrated New York is just a bunch of city people
I hate how, about 1/2 of the population in the U.S. doesn't even know where we are, I've lived here my whole life (16 years) and I know our state has several things in it to see... - delien
I love the black hills!V 7 Comments
It is awesome. Harpers Ferry Is really informative, and the people here are really kind. It is all nature, and it's the best for hitchhiking, hunting, fishing, and camping. It should be top 10.
I live in West Virginia it it is so cool some times it's really cold and some times it's really hot it's all woods its full of nice people it should be number one
West Virginia in NOT full of toothless hillbillies in the mountains! It gets lots of snow lots of awesome stuff! 9/10
I live in West Virginia and it is a very interesting state.V 11 Comments
It is the people of Nebraska that makes it a great place. The people of Nebraska are its riches asset. In Nebraska, people never forgot to be human. To honor their roots and celebrate them and our differences. The beautiful Sand hills that one can find solace to the bustling East were there is a smorgasbord of culinary delights, Art and Music. A cornucopia awaits the outdoorsman with great fishing and boating, equine activities. Shopping may not be world class but you will find just about anything your heart desires here. It truly is the Good Life...something I never had in California. If your are bored in Nebraska it is because your are boring to begin with.
Hate the fact that everyone hates this place and say it has nothing... there are TONS of things to do but maybe not as much as california
I am from here and I used to hate it but it is a very special place, people are kind, the hills are beautiful and people say Nebraska is flat and it is actually one of the least flattest states. People say it is boring but search a little song called right here in Nebraska by the string beans.
Very boring in the beginning but it gets better when u get in the middle and western NebraskaV 21 Comments
Born and raised here in Indiana! Yea we got a lot of corn but Indianapolis is awesome! So much to do there like Children's museum, the Indianapolis Zoo, Lucas Oil Stadium, Pacers, and much more! And don't forget that Michael Jackson's from here! Go Indiana!
Indiana is EXTREMELY underrated, it is very beautiful and overall very good state. California is a warm state, I get it, but it is also very crazy with celebs and has many natural disasters. Indiana doesn't have to many natural disasters, only having some tornadoes in the south and some light earthquakes here and there. Our cities are cool, we have Indi which has cool stadiums, places to go and great restaurants. Even Fort Wayne is cool, because it has an amazing zoo and a really awesome downtown.
Love Indiana. Our downtown in Indianapolis is amazing. And we know how to host a WONDERFUL superbowl unlike some other cities in the United States. Come visit Indiana. You will love it.
Indiana is perfect not to bad winters and warm summers. Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, and South Bend are great Cities. We're not to crowded 3 million people. UnderratedV 37 Comments
Louisiana OWNS this title.
1. We've got the amazingly delicious food: Gumbo, Po boys, Jambalaya, Crawfish Ettoufee, etc.
2. We've got all the outrageously fun festivals, especially Mardi Gras!
3. Our state is the birthplace of Jazz music!
4. We've got brilliant multicultural heritage and culture!
5. New Orleans is America's most unique city.
6. We've got beautiful wildlife and nature. And might I add, some of the nation's best swamps :)
7. Whenever we're hit by a tropical storm or hurricane, WE ALWAYS PULL THROUGH!
Just visited New Orleans and it's hard to express how impressed it made me! Special and very unique like no other! Especially the nightlife and the friendliness of the locals, food and mint juleps! It's so amazing to be there, feels very safe, to! Also visited some of the plantations- great piece of history there, beautiful nature, very interesting. I am foreign and have no intention to lie - I'm in love with Louisiana!
Its hot, its cold. Its hot. Did I tell you it will be cold AGAIn? HA HA Louisiana is a GREAT place to live! Not much, but we're a family. It just feels like we know each other. Its a good place to go if you want some alone time with the family. Plenty of outdoors! Just watch out for mosquitoes and bring the spray!

Delaware is the best state in America. It is the first state! All of the other states followed Delaware's lead when Delaware ratified the Constitution. Delaware is a leader. Also, Delaware has some of the best beaches in the U.S. Very relaxing. They also have a state hair which is very well known. The weather is amazing as well. Snow in winter and cold, blazing hot/warm in the summer, and mild in spring and fall.Delaware rarely ever has tornadoes, earthquakes, floods. Never had a tsunami. The only thing that isn't rare is hurricanes but when they do it they aren't bad. Delaware is the best.
Delaware is a cool place they have awesome beaches awesome state fair and great football and baseball. You should come
I live in Delaware and there is no place I would rather be. It is the place where I have grown up and where I will stay. I have seen California, New York, and many other places, but they are enormous and full of buildings. When going down the back roads of Delaware you get to see the wildlife and see how beautiful it really is. I attend the Delaware State Fair each year, every day and it is one of my favorite summer activities. I enter exhibits and even help set up the fair everyone sees as a finished product. The agriculture is immense and many organizations such as FFA or 4-H flourish here.
Not very populated - Dave346V 10 Comments
I used to live their its beautiful I love it it has beautiful trees and mountains. Beaver lake is the best lake in the WORLD. It's got so many caves and things to do eureka springs has a bunch of cool buildings and things to do. Rogers Arkansas, Bella vista, Bentonville, pea ridge and Fayetteville those places in Arkansas are the best.
I love vacations in Arkansas. It is so beautiful and relaxing.
If I got to chose the best state between California, Florida, and Arkansas it would be Arkansas. I've been to all three and still think Arkansas is the best. Arkansas is beautiful and there is a bunch of fun stuff to do there.
I think that Arkansas is very amazing and has summary nice people. I hope my home state get more respect in the future.V 15 Comments
