Why'd you choose such a random list of states?

California easily, probably by far actually.

After that New York. Subjectively for me personally; Washington, Colorado, and Oregon as the states to come after New York. Maybe I'll think of Massachusetts in more detail to give it a shot, although I'm not certain at this point, definitely no fan of New England but do like Boston or actually, to rephrase, think of it as an okay sort of place. Will think on that one a bit more before being definite. After that, among those poll choices, I'll take the overseas (both first world and third world), honestly.

We've lived in Pennsylvania near the Appalachian Trail and about two miles from Maryland. We have also lived in Maryland, not on your list, but I had to vote on West Virginia because we had friends and family there which were near us when we lived in Maryland and Pennsylvania...

But we came out to New Mexico, also not on your list based on the criteria you listed:

New Mexico is a great state but i just couldn't imagine living there, it's pretty much out in the middle of nowhere

I'm surprised to see California with the most votes

I guess there is San Diego and San Francisco

The poll reflects the pro-California bias of CD. When you take into account taxes, COL, population, and crime, I don't see how CA can offer the best QOL.
