I guess that means Nebraska is full of people who are actually LIVING their lives, rather than posting about random things on this forum.

-New England (CT, VT, NH, MA, RI, ME)
-Mid-Atlantic (NY, PA, MD, DE, NJ)
-Southeast (VA, NC, SC, TN, KY, WV, GA, FL, MS, LA, AL, AR)
-Upper Midwest (OH, MI, IL, IN, MN, WI)
-Plain states (ND, SD, IA, NE, MO, KS, OK)
-Southwest (TX, NM, AZ, CA)
-Western Mountain states (CO, WY, MT, UT, ID)
-Pacific Northwest (WA, OR)
-Alaska
-Hawaii
Given my many years here I would say the Plains States.

IMO, Nebraska seems to go unrecognized on C-D.

Nebraska has some fine qualities. It is certainly not for everyone, no place is. However, it's peaceful, clean, friendly, and beautiful in its own way.

I'd have no issue moving there should the right situation present itself.

I think a lot of it has to do with population concentration. States in the midwest/east have a history of immigrants. The west coast/mountain west has people coming for good weather, scenery, etc. It seems like with Nebraska/Kansas and comparable, they are difficult to get to and when you do get here, there isn't much there and the population reflects that. I'm from Nashville and even here, we suffer from brain drain. It's not necessarily something to be ashamed of-I'm a first generation Tennesseean-but it is something that needs to be acknowledged. I'm leaving after I finish college at the end of next month like most people here end up doing.

Southeast gets a lot of recognition due to the huge number of states in it, but Louisiana doesnt get much of a mention outside the dedicated forum.

I agree, as well as you neighbors of Alabama and Mississippi. Texas seems to overshadow on one side along with Florida and Georgia on the other. Nashville's hot status to the north hasn't helped either.

Well done there, Omahahonors. Many of your pix here are not only remarkably beautiful but also stunning & sure to blow away more than a few preconceived notions here about Nebraska & the Midwest.
