What states would you consider not diverse when it comes to its landscape?
What states would you consider really diverse when it comes to its landscape?

What i mean by landscape I mean, hills, mountains, beaches, lakes, forests, plains, urban, rural etc

My list

-Least Diverse
Ohio <debatable>
Florida
Louisiana
Delaware
Kansas
Iowa

-Most Diverse
California
New York
North Carolina
New Jersey
Texas
Washington

*And I'm not bashing states when i say they don't have a diverse landscape*

I agree with your list, especially FL. The landscape is the same in nearly the entire state. The only thing that really changes are the amount of palm trees between the north side of the state and south side lol.

Have you seen all of Ohio? Cincy is hilly, southeast Ohio is the beginning of Appalachia, northeast Ohio is rolling countryside, and northwest Ohio is admittedly flat as a pancake. Oh, and there's this big lake to the north that offers boating, beaches and one of the most notable amusement parks in the country. Not diverse??
