Best U.S. States to Live In
The Top Ten
I love California because we live in our bubble away from the rest of the country's problems (racial tension). It's a beautiful place to live from our geography to our culture. There is always something fun to do in Los Angeles; you can go to the beach, go on a hike, go to Disneyland, go downtown, etc. Of course, there are some problems here, but what state doesn't have problems. Some bad things include traffic, pollution, extreme wealth inequality, homelessness, etc. I think that the pros outnumber the cons. California in general is a lot like how BoJack Horseman describes New York, it's a great place to visit if you're extremely wealthy.
Fremont is the Best! The only problems are drivers cost of living and the rude people. But that's why I like it. Texas is trash they're just jealous of Cali. San Fran is better than Austin, but Austin is getter better at least
They're not jealous of California, by the way. California was never the best state to live in, in these recent years, Idaho and Texas are the most popular states to move to.
I was born in California and lived there for 6 years after moving to Texas. California is a beautiful and great state, but it's WAY overpopulated and has so much traffic. I wouldn't want to live there again.
I lived there for four years, and every time you merge you just hope you aren't hit
Los Angeles is so phoney, San Francisco is becoming a yuppie city, otherwise it's a fun state to live in.
Washington is a great state for young people who don't mind about weather. This is a very productive state with enough attractions to make it fun, but not super fun. However since Iv'e been living here for a while, I do plan to move somewhere with better weather. Perhaps Florida. Like I said its meant for young people and older folks or people that don't want rain forever should move later on.
It's very rainy for the majority of the year in Western Washington, but there's many different areas in the state with different climates. It's very beautiful, and there are many great job opportunities. I wouldn't retire here because of the weather, but while working this is a perfect place
I live in Washington and it is so beautiful
Washington is beautiful!
Beautiful, but too far away and too expensive. Also a tourist trap.
I am from Florida but I want to live in Hawaii!
Was born in North carolina, currently reside there, I've been to the line star state several times, and I can tell you, it's the best state in the union...With cities like Austin (fast growing and robust) and big players like San antonio, dallas, and Houston
I was born in California, lived there until I was six and moved to The Lone Star state. After 7 years I'm a die hard Texan and would never move away from the best state in America.
Best state in America!
Best state to retire in, but not to live in when you are in your mid 20s and plus, it depends where in Florida.
A state where Donald Trump won. Says all about the majority of people here.
Say what you want, but I love my state.
My Favourite YouTuber SuperMarioLogan Lives There
I grew up there and it's a beautiful state and helps kids explore nature.
I love New Hampshire so much. It's so beautiful and safe
The economy here is good. I love our current mayor (well, he's republican, so what do you expect? )
Pennsylvania is good state that has no natural disasters.no crime no bad stuff about Pennsylvania.only thing it is really cold.i lived here over 10 years and one year we had a really bad snow storm,but Pennsylvania should be at least second
Well, Massachusetts is wonderful, especially Boston. Just a few thing bothers me and one of those things is the cold. It is freezing whenever it gets cold and there is so much snow. I love the heat in Massachusetts though whenever it is hot and the scenery is beautiful. There are also many stores in Boston or on Newbury Street like Newbury Comics and some clothes stores and also cupcake stores. It is wonderful living in Massachusetts!
I love Vermont I think that it is a really fun place to live especially in the fall
Should be higher nice small country feel good people what else can you ask for
Vermont is awesome!
Georgia has all the different areas people like to live in such as big cities and country just a few miles away. It's got many attractions such as six flags over Georgia.It has low house cost and residents have great hospitality
Georgia has inexpensive property, good education, nice geography, and has some pretty sweet vacation spots.
Yeah because after when I leave college, I will move to NYC
It's expensive and overrated. Avoid New York!
"expensive and overrated" describes about 1% of the state lol
Iowa is small, but holy cow the people are awesome. My buddy just moved up there and I spent a week checking out Des Moines. Surprisingly there is a lot to do all the time, lots of places to shop, and the people are really laid back and easy going. Twice we went to a local store and got invited to go party being new in town. Got to hang out with some really cool and fun folks. My buddy's neighborhood has no fences so all the kids run around like it was as safe as it was in 1950. Folks are very active and will sit out in their drive ways and drink beer while the kids play in the street. They sell hard liquor on displays at Walmart! Great place!
Great economy, Jobs, and much more! Also, super safe and nice people! (It is not all corn that is just a stereotype)
Great state to live in. Nice and peaceful. Not many rude people. Lots of fun stuff to do. Underrated.
It reminds me of my dog and I love my dog
I know I move a lot, I'm moving to Maine and it's beautiful, I love it
Undoubtedly the most underrated. This state is extremely nice, respectful and hard working
It's the industrious and hard working state.
The landscape is just amazing. This T.V. show (forgot the name of it) is a 1-2 hour complication of the landscape. I got comfortable and watched the whole thing. The beaches are.. fun, I enjoyed it a lot, especially rock away beach. If you have family here, and looking for great people, great communities and beautiful landscape, Oregon is for you.
It truly is a great place to live, mild winters and summers. People are friendly, I live in the southern part of the state with the ocean 2 hrs away and beautiful rivers with good fishing.
Beautiful coastline, most of the locals are quite friendly and nice, wonderful attractions and landscapes, great place to start a life!
I live here and I love it!
It's absolutely great
Nebraska is republican state and peaceful state a really good quiet state
A really nice, peaceful state. Kind of bare though.
There is no way in the world we should be behind Wisconsin or Michigan, as people are moving to the Twin Cities from those places. And you'd seriously rather live in Louisiana or West Virginia? Minnesota should be way higher. The cities have pro sports, great theater and night life, well maintained parks and lakes, the summers and falls here are beautiful. The winter can be harsh but it's been getting warmer every year. We don't get the Hurricanes, rockslides, earthquakes, and natural disasters others get, just a tornado every now and then. Minnesota belongs in the top ten, really.
Let me go through some of the things about this state: Last 5 years it's been ranked top 2 for most literate states in the US, it is one of the healthiest states one that has one of he best education systems in the states, it's got the best hospital in he US, it's one of the most active, it has a low crime rate, ranked one of the best places to have a family, beautiful north country, and only around 5 million people.
The only thing bad about my state is the flag (which is very boring and also a bit racist). Minnesota had the highest S.A.T score in the USA in 2007 & has the 2nd highest life expectancy in the USA (after Hawaii, which anyone would assume would be #1).
Only one explanation.
Alaska is an amazing state with a lot of scenery and beautiful national parks. It can get cold, and it is sparsely populated, but Anchorage and Fairbanks are amazing cities with great business opportunities. Alaska is the adventurer's dream.
How is this 31, is bad to be 5 or higher (top 5
After traveling to 46 states and living in 12, I can say that Colorado deserves to be much higher than this on the list
Rhode Island is not a place to retire. The taxes are high. The Governor tried to lower the taxes on retirees but only if you are 65 years old or older. If you retired younger you have to pay the high tax rate. This is why we are looking to move to a state who are friendlier to retirees. Also the State is not business friendly. High taxes and fees. Most states surrounding
Rhode Island has the worst infrastructure and the taxes are exorbitant.
