My favorite type of states are the Palm Tree/Warm-Water Beach type states (South NY to TX), SoCal, Hawaii & Puerto Rico .
When did New York get palm trees?

There are some in NYC/Long Island the climate supports them and they're in hardiness zone 7 which supports some species, they're not widespread, but I was mainly focusing on the warm-water beaches .

"CALIFORNIA IS ONE OF the most biologically diverse areas in the world. Within its 160,000 square miles, California harbors more unique plants and animals than any other state. The diversity of climates and landscapes, and all the barriers to migrations such as rivers, mountains, and deserts, have led over thousands of years to the evolution of a large number of isolated species and varieties of animals, many of which are found only here. For example, there are about 30,000 species of insects recorded from California, 63 freshwater fishes, 46 amphibians, 96 reptiles, 563 birds, 190 mammals, and about 8,000 plants."

for the win

California is very unique, every time I watch KTLA they have like 6 different forecasts for the LA area, the diversity is one of the main reasons I like Cali .

True.

Well if y'all don't mind, I think I'll vote for another state. I can't honestly think of one thing Cali has that isn't prettier somewhere else.

There really isn't a prettiest state. All of the states have there beauty for their own unique things. They ALL are pretty.

objectivity > subjectivity

because people's own biased opinions lead to delusional comments. like the whole "wine from new york is just as good if not better than california wines" argument people were tryin so hard to push.

and thus, California wins yet again
