2. Kentucky is a gorgeous state, but I agree with you, the people suck bigtime. They drive SOOOOO slow, but become very obscene when you supposedly "get in their way."


Where the heck in KY did you go? Yes, we may not drive fast but I have NEVER encountered anyone obscene and I have lived hear dang near all my life.

We were surprised at what a great place Alabama is. Birmingham is a beautiful little undiscovered gem. It just is nothing like the stereotypes make it out to be.

Hmm, well I voted for Florida.. mainly because its where I'm from and I dont think it compares to the other states in terms of the southern mentality and etc the other states have.

I've been to, lived in, or driven through 10 out of those 14 in the poll (leaving AK, WV, OK, and TX- although I dont consider TX as 'the south', more southwest), and I honestly hate the south. New Orleans is ok, its different from the rest of LA, although it is very southern-minded. But its unique.

I've lived in Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Alabama and Tennessee are beautiful. Mississippi has very nice people. Been to different cities in Florida a couple of times but it's flat geography is not attractive to me at all. You could always tell you were driving out of Alabama into Florida just by looking at the roads. Another nice place is the western part of Virginia and Arkansas. Texas, is well, Texas. There's no real comparison.

Only 4 people said Arkansas, why?
They've got Hot Springs, open space, and even Evanescence, now who can beat that?

Oklahoma should not be on that list. It is considered to be south. Missouri would have been more appropriate

LOL I agree mom! That's hysterical IMO. I am obviously biased towards KY, but believe KY, TN, and NC to almost be triplets. Much in common between the three. Having traveled to every state that was mentioned, I don't consider TX south at all as well as a couple of other states mentioned that I consider to be "midwest". The virginias as well as KY are very southern if you've ever traveled up north. FL - it depends on the area.
