You are right about that. Tri-state people not so much.

kentucky seems very friendly every time I'm there.

Florida seems a lot friendlier than what I hear...the cashiers at mcdonalds even bring you your food to where your sitting in some parts(dont know if thats common elsewhere)

Let me give you a little perspective. I grew up mostly in Minnesota, which has a stereotype of Minnesota nice. This is true - people are outwardly nice. However, they will eat you alive behind your back and on average the people I grew up with are the biggest jerks I've ever met of anywhere in the world. Iowa and Wisconsin are similar in this regard. If you only visit these places you wouldn't think that but live there for awhile and you'll see what I mean. Things aren't what they seem.

Wish that the great state of Georgia was an option! Friendliest people you'll ever meet! In fact, the south is probably the friendliest area
of the country. Southern hospitalty?! Helloooo?

South Carolina or Georgia. It's not California, for sure.
