Your not gonna feel like your driving up a mountain,if it is a 2-300 ft hill.And the pictures I've seen of New York it does look like a bunch of buildings on a flat surface.

well...there was that show called Hill Street Blues in the 90s....I supose it would have to change to just "street blues on a flat street in NY" if it were level. I don't remember seeing hills worth remembering, but whe youve lived on the west coast and Visited San Fran, then you get a certain perspective.

Where as I hate every state thats flat....BTW Oklahoma has moutains on the East side. right before it becomes Arkansas. I get more speeding tickets in Flat states, as my foot gets lazy and before I know it, Im doing 15 miles over the speed limit. Does that happen to any of you? You would think with the miles of nothingness, I would see the officer on the side of the road. In states like Oregon and Washinton State, I am always going up and down hills and mountains,and always turning and twisting aournd roads.

I wasn't bragging, just educating you! But really, I don't know where you've been in Manhattan, but you must not have seen much of it to say these things. You see mostly skyscrapers from a distance, but walk on the ground and you have lots of hills. And yeah, they're hills -- not steep mountains -- but it is far from flat!

Getting back on-topic, I don't understand how being a "flat" state makes it boring anyway. On flat terrain, you can see both ends of a rainbow!

I will go on a limb and say that I DO think flat states are boring. Hills covered with skyscapers are not mountains. Hill country in Texas is a joke, as I look out at the Many Volcanic peaks of the pacific NW.

Hill country isn't the only portion of Texas that has hills,and to say just because a state is flat means it is boring isn't fair. No one is going to take any of your opinions seriously if you make judgements about a state just because it is flat!

and don't forget the mountians in El Paso.

I don't want to upset anyone but I have been to most of your state, I assume you are from texas. After you mountains end, there is nothing for hundreds and hundreds of miles. Hill country is kinda of...whatever. The water fronts and boardwalks of houston is fun...San Antonio is fun, but the majority of your state is not that fun to look at. You have to drive and drive and drive (repeat).

Texas (once again) isnt the most boring, but it is rather boring. I was on the road from Fort Woth to Amarillo and it was the longest five hours in my travels. Even flat can be intesting sometimes (see Kansas), but all I saw was about 10 severely run down Towns, ugly water towers, and grain silos. You can always find a Dairy Queen with a cute girl who wants the to hitch up and get the H out of town in each one of those towns.
