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... read more

Has it all from a long and differing seacoast to beautiful hills and incredibly dangerous and beautiful Sierras. Add the valleys where wine is grown and you've have something for everyone. Like Disneyland it cannot be seen in a brief time limit.

There's amusement parks, beaches, national parks, historical landmarks, cultural centers, and more. Plus, your vacation probably won't be interrupted by bad weather, since it's almost always sunny in California.

It's fun if you're a visitor, but very boring if you actually live here. There's also the fact that I'm basically allergic to the sun and get sunburned easily, so going outside on sunny days is hell.

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

Looks like a beautiful place to live. My sister lived there and the pictures are so beautiful.

Its not safe on the big island, an eruption happened there, causing hundreds of earthquakes!

I love Hawaii BEST place every it's warm every day winter is like summer Florida and that stupid stuff sucks! Hawaii

3 Florida Florida is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. Florida is the southeasternmost U.S. state, with the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.

The beach and disney and universal and its very diverse. All the Cuban Puerto Rican Dominicans and Haitians there are makes it so different. For most states its like 1 race mostly... Like Arkansas got all the white people and Idaho got all the white folks and Georgia and Maryland got all the black people the only diverse states I will say is New York, Florida California, and Massachuttes.

The best state to go to the beaches, and theme parks within the same state. The beaches of Western Florida are soft and sandy and so beautiful. Florida is a peninsula surrounded by beaches with sunrises AND sunsets. Can you get both sunrises AND sunsets anywhere else?

4 New York New York is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic Region. New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States. With an estimated 19.54 million residents in 2018, it is the fourth most populous state. In order to distinguish the state from the city with the same name, it is... read more

The best. We New Yorkers are honest, bold and helpful. People from ALL over come to visit NY. I live here and you won't believe how many tourists I see here every day.

The Big Apple is a great place, but for those who want to see the wild side of New York, go to the adirondacks,

5 Alaska Alaska is a U.S. state situated in the northwest extremity of the Americas. The Canadian administrative divisions of British Columbia and Yukon border the state to the east; it has a maritime border with Russia to the west across the Bering Strait.

Only because I already live in Utah. Alaska is awesome, though.

It's freezing but great for skiing!

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.

Skiing and snowboarding clearly nobody's been to Colorado should be right behind Hawaii

Even though Texas is my home state I think Colorado has the very best vacations

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

I recently visited Houston, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, and Dallas and I can say Texas is definitely the best state to vacation in. It's beautiful and the people there are very friendly. I feel Texas is something to really be proud of.

It's an underrated state to visit because of all the stereotypes. The weather is unpredictable in a good and bad way

I live here, and I don't want to take a vacation, so yeah...

8 Wyoming Wyoming is a state in the mountain region of the Western United States. The state is the tenth largest by area, but the least populous and the second least densely populated of the 50 United States.
9 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.

My go to vacation spot. Always someplace to go to have fun.

Home to Lake Powell, the best vacation spot ever.

Zion National Park, the reservoirs, the mountains, the atmosphere� need I say more?

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

12 Maryland Maryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Washington, D.C.

I live in Maryland and I have to say we have some pretty cool places like Six Flags of America and Ocean City.

I went to Ocean City twice, oh it's awesome!

Maryland rocks the most, not Hawaii!

13 North Carolina North Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, Virginia to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

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

This should be in the top 10...Las Vegas is one of the best vacation spots.

16 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.

The vast selection of Restaurants from cheap eats to fine dining.
The best music in the world. Chicago Blues.

The boardwalks are awesome, especially Ocean City, Atlantic City, Wildwood, and Seaside Heights!

24 Connecticut

This state is boring, people use this state as a way to get from New York to Boston (Or Vice-Versa). I can say this because I live here.
