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"

That's a redneck thing and rednecks are scattered in all of the southern states counting Kentucky and Tennessee

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

Dad gum it we ain't all that way yall


2 New Yorkers are arrogant

Aren't all of us Americans?

3 California is all about Hollywood and surfing

This stereotype is mainly directed at SoCal, and even there, you won't see many people walking the red carpet or hanging 10 on the surfboard on a daily basis. - ethanmeinster

California has huge snow skiing resort spread across its numerous high mountain areas like Mammoth Mountain and Lake Tahoe.
Most people who do 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 40 million people in the state, everything is massively overcrowded.

4 Florida is full of Cubans and retired people

And don't forget about Disney World. - ethanmeinster

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. - ethanmeinster

Pretty much - NicholasYellow

6 Mississippi is racist

It's actually true!

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

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

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. - ethanmeinster

9 Minnesota is basically part of Canada

Probably because of the cold weather, eh. - ethanmeinster

I lived in Minnesota for a while, and it was.. freezing. it was like living in the freezer my entire time there. - soulpunk

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 is the big deal? - PatrickS

10 New Jersey is filled with Italians

And Irish people. I actually live in NJ and am half Irish

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

No that's New York, it's filled with trash and crime. - Picklesthekitten45

The Contenders

11 Everyone from Alabama marries their cousins

I'm sure there's one person out there who isn't out there. Only one. - 0w0uwu

Inbred slobs that yell roll tide - modernspongebobisbetterthanime

14 Vermonters are Bernie Sanders loving, redneck douches
