What are your favorite states?

Feel free to explain why, if you like...

Mine are:

1. Massachusetts - education, industry, progressivism and moral authority.
2. Florida - beaches, ocean and laid back culture (especially on the Atlantic coast).
3. Maine - beaches, ocean and laid back culture.
4. Illinois - Architecture, Chicago, the best of Americana.
5. Pennsylvania - Philadelphia, Pittsburg, the Allegheny and Pocano Mountains.

Maryland - Homestate Pride! Woot!
New Hampshire - Scenic and quirky.
Virginia - Rich in history.
Wisconsin - Extremely friendly, and cheese galore!
Washington - Seattle.

Never been to any, but am familiar with the country. New York I would rate the highest; it seems to be the perfect reflection of America as I imagine it being. Liberty and tolerance being valued principles. There is, moreover, a lot to do there, as well as places that are not full of people. Good geographical setting.

Second would be Washington; the area around Seattle in particular seems serene, and I imagine that the people there are more down to earth than in most other states. Only an assumption, however. The nature and climate resemble the European ones, which I appreciate. I would place California and Florida higher had it not been for the overly warm climate. I am not fond of beaches either.

There are other good candidates that rank nearly as high. These I am just most familiar with.

Overall, I find US an ugly country, so I don't really like any state in particular (not that I visited a lot anyway :D). But I do like some specific cities. I love San Francisco, NY, and I absolutely love Las Vegas. I was very dissapointed with LA!!1!!

The quickest way to get sick of Seattle is to go there during Bumbershoot.

Culvers is from Wisconsin too, right? I can't remember...

Washington State - Because politics

Why not Massachusetts, for the same reason?

Hawaii - Because Beauty

I've never been to Hawaii, but I'd love to go.

Pennsylvania - Because Philadelphia

It's one of my favorite cities in the country, for sure.

Yeah, along with a lot of others. I used to live 30 minutes from the Wisconsin border and the authentic cheese, wherever I bought it from was just.. great.
Washington State - Because politics

Massachusetts is really great, too. Elizabeth Warren comes out of there (If I was American I'd vote for her over Hillary). When I said Washington I had Marijuana Legalization in mind though, combined with a big ton of other social law that I like.

Hawaii - Because Beauty

I've never been to Hawaii, but I'd love to go.
I went when I was very young. I only remember a few things, but it was beautiful..

Pennsylvania - Because Philadelphia

It's one of my favorite cities in the country, for sure.
San Francisco and Philadelphia are amazing :)
