Yup, Hawaii is obvious. So is Alaska. New Mexico is not. Sorry.

Does it get much more "exotic" than this? [IMG]http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs32/i/20..._by_kimjew.jpg[/IMG]

If it were its own state, Upper Michigan would be #1 in the Midwest and a strong contender east of the Mississippi, at least.

Obviously, Hawaii wins this thread.

I would say only some cities or towns have an exotic or different feel, but for the most part, the outlying suburbs and highways could be Anywhere U.S.A. Perhaps the two larger areas are New Mexico north of Santa Fe, or Louisiana below I-10 - but even there - the exotic areas are mainly in the older parts of the larger cities, and in a few well-preserved small towns.

There are also places that are not "exotic" in the cultural sense, but just stand apart very sharply from their surroundings, like Eureka Springs and Hot Springs, Arkansas - both places look nothing like what one would expect in the Arkansas hills.
