I like rocky, dramatic beaches that are near mountain chains.

Hills near water, mountains nearby. Which is why I like California so much as well as Seattle and Portland. Pittsburgh also looks stunning to me- havent been though, similarly, Vancouver looks sweet.

I like all landscape types.

Landscapes, especially in this country and Canada, are diverse visually--which is why they evoke a range of emotions.

...

I hate it when people say places like the Great Plains are "boring". Aren't beaches, mountains, or forests boring if you look at them long enough? Some of the drives can be monotonous, yes...but the High Plains has some very rugged topography in areas.

Mountains first, closely followed by beaches, but mainly the sort of beaches we have here in PNW. I'm not really interested in hot, white sand beaches.

Give me MOUNTAINS!

Flat states are just... well... boring.

I selected forests but I wouldn't really mind any of them. Even the open plains that I live in now which arguably not as expansive as further west anyways.

Definitely sugary white sandy beaches, preferably the Atlantic around South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. The gulf has some nice beaches as well, but hate rocky cold beaches like those here in Washington state they're kind of pretty, but you can't enjoy them like you can with the sandy beaches.
