The Big Island is pretty unique, for a such a "relatively" small area:

I would also say Oregon, most people are unaware that there are deserts there.

Not Beaches, but Arizona w/ its' desert areas of extreme heat along w/ mountainous regions w/ snow in the winter. You have Phoenix and the Grand Canyon in the same state!

North Carolina and Georgia are almost twins in their rise from coast to Blue Ridge and Piedmont in between. The biggest difference is North Carolina does this in a more west to east fashion while Georgia does it from the south to the north.

I see both sides of the Texas argument presented here. Overall, very diverse. However, it is so much of the same thing for so long it is almost useless in a practical sense. the overall state is very flat. Yes East Texas rolls a little. Yes there is the Hill Country with some nice relief. But you have to go to the far southwestern quadrant around Big Bend, Marfa and on in to El Paso to see mountains of any size. And with that kind of drive, at least for me here in DFW, would drive to New Mexico or Colorado first for the mountain experience.

And kudos to the post on Oklahoma. Maybe not the most diverse state in the country, but probably a good candidate for most unrecognized for its diversity.

Oklahoma should be up near the top... prairies, swamps, forests, grasslands, mountains, high desert, mesas, sand dunes, etc.
