There is a trend asking for 'Most hated/disliked part of your state'
What about 'The most pleasant city or part of your state'

In Iowa, I'd have to say from Le Claire (just north of I-80) along the Mississippi River up to Marquette. It's an extremely scenic part of the Midwest. If people saw pictures of it, they would never believe it was Iowa...which is traditionally believed to be just flat and full of cornfields.

Northeast Iowa, especially along the Mississippi, is probably one of the most picturesque parts of the country during mid-October. The color show along with the general topography is quite remarkable.

Maryland has so much. Though the Eastern Shore, Ocean City, and the Appalachians are great, the Chesapeake -- I think we all can agree -- is the most loved.

I've never been to Sedona, never really looked at pictures of it before, but holy crap it's like the best of trees and desert in one.


My answer is Rocky Mountain National Park. There's so many cities and towns that have a pleasantness about them that it would be a fruitless task to name them all (and my list would be quite atypical).
