Top 10 Stereotypes About U.S. States

America is a big land with 50 states, so differences can be noticed between each region.
The Top Ten
1 People from Texas are cowboys that say "Yee-Haw"

It's not exactly all Old Western in Austin, a popular city for hipsters.

2 California is all about Hollywood and surfing

California has huge snow skiing resorts spread across its numerous high mountain areas like Mammoth Mountain and Lake Tahoe. Most people who work for the movie studios are electricians, carpenters, computer techs, etc., not actors. Far more people in California go bass fishing than go surfing. The main stereotype that applies to California is CROWDS. There are 40 million people in the state. Everything is massively overcrowded.

This stereotype is mainly directed at Southern California, and even there, you won't see many people walking the red carpet or hanging ten on the surfboard on a daily basis.

3 New Yorkers are arrogant
4 Florida is full of Cubans and retired people

And don't forget about Disney World.

5 Washington and Oregon are full of bearded hipsters living in rainy weather

Wear a beanie, a turtleneck, and thick glasses, and you'll fit in here.

6 Mississippi is racist

The Confederate symbol on the state's official flag makes this understandable.

We did have a lot of slavery long ago, but there isn't even close to as much racism now.

I'd go as far as to say the whole South is racist. I hate anyone that's a Southern redneck.

7 Colorado is a stoned ski destination
8 There's nothing to see North Dakota

However, if you're interested in telephone poles and barren badlands, then this place is for you.

That's where the U.S. hides nuclear bombs.

9 Minnesota is basically part of Canada

I'm a resident of Minnesota. I'm not surprised to see this up here. Us Minnesotans like the Canadians, so I don't know what the big deal is?

Probably because of the cold weather, eh.

10 New Jersey is filled with Italians

Nope. It's pretty diverse. There's an Asian strip mall in Pennsauken.

The Contenders
11 Everyone from Alabama marries their cousins

I'm sure there's one person out there who isn't. Only one.

12 Maine is home to overpriced lobster, lighthouses, and rich white people
13 New Hampshire is empty.
14 All of Michigan is dangerous

This is just wrong. Only a few cities are dangerous.

15 Vermonters are Bernie Sanders loving, redneck douches

Rednecks? Don't you mean hippies, who are pretty much the opposite of them?

16 Hawaii is full of people who say "Aloha" and play the ukulele.
17 Alaska has eskimos and sled dogs.
18 Kansas is full of white farmers who shower in dirt and live in a storm shelter
19 Maryland is all about crabs
20 Louisiana is all about fried chicken
21 Wisconsin children don't get a good education
22 Delaware is boring
23 California is only inhabited with Asians and Mexicans
24 Arkansas is full of moonshiners
25 People in Pennsylvania are rude
