Alaska and Hawaii are definitely the most "different" US states. Anything else will be a discussion among the contiguous states. Alaska's coastline with it's soaring peaks, glaciers and wildlife make it much different than anything you will find in the lower 48. Hawaii definitely fits the exotic label.

If it was a state, Puerto Rico, if we're talking just about states, Hawaii.

My wife and I were playing golf on the Mauna Kea course a few years ago. She was complaining about how many of her balls were going into lava rock patches and how hard it was to hit them out.

To which I replied,"Think about all the courses we've played and how many times you've been able to say that."

I don't know how one ends up thinking West Virginia is exotic in any way shape or form. Although the switchbacks on every westbound route out of Virginia are pretty intense. Would love to drive those someday in an uber expensive sports car.

The Blue Mountains or Ered Luin. If you listen closely you can hear the dwarves singing in the underground city.

North Dakota is definitely not exotic. It is generally uncrowded, though. Southern Louisiana would strike me as more exotic and especially in New Orleans and Baton Rouge. I am not saying one is better than the other, though.

Problem is, you can find mountains like that in many states. North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, South Dakota, Montana, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California and more I'm sure.

These mountains are no doubt beautiful and each mountain is unique but it's not that much different than many others.
