I liked Kansas looks wise and people wise but I was allergic to it. Something in the air. Cried everytime I went outdoors. My eyes just poured water.

Only 98? You really caught a break.

OK, seriously though. Yes, the summers can be brutally hot, so we're very grateful for the plentiful lakes, rivers, and pools. Most of all, though, we're thankful for air conditioning!

But it's really only VERY hot here for about three months out of twelve. And even during those three months, well, you do get used to it. I've spent many a long summer evening out on the patio with the ceiling fans going and a big glass of iced tea, yapping with friends and family way into the night. Nice.

You can't beat the winters. Today is typical - bright sunshine, deep blue sky, with lows in the thirties (above freezing!) and highs in the fifties! http://www.weather.com/weather/today...+USTX1383:1:US

Spring is absolutely fabulous - Texas is famous for it's wildflowers which bloom in amazing profusion everywhere in our warm and breezy springs. And yes, we do get fall colors in east Texas, where there are plenty of hardwood trees!

Oh, wow, check out our ten day forecast - we're in for a real cold snap later in the week - the high will only be 48 and the lows will be below freezing! I better run out and stock up on milk and toilet paper!

I've only been to 12 of 50 states, so I can only include those I've been to. My favorite three are, in no particular order, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Vermont.

No particular order:

Georgia
Texas
Virginia/Tennessee

Just outside my list is Ohio because well, that's where I'm born and raised and I just love the state no matter what except the cold. And I love visiting Florida but I'd hate to live there

states that I haven't been to but want to:

California
Oregon

I see we have similar tastes. I really like the three top states you chose. Virginia is my absolute favorite state EVER. It seems to have just about everything!

I also really, really, really like Ohio. It's very underrated in my opinion. Beautiful countryside, clean cities, and friendly people.

Nice.

I also really like Oregon, though I wouldn't want to live there. It has beautiful rolling countryside and a fabulous coastline.

Great minds think alike lol but thank you for someone respecting Ohio and not just seeing the entire state as the bad areas of east Cleveland

My brother lives near Dayton, and I really enjoy visiting him. Love the little towns, the beautiful farms, etc. Here's a pretty cool picture I took in that area a year or so ago:
