My order would probably go:

1. Idaho
2. Montana
3. Wyoming
4. South Dakota
5. North Dakota

North Dakota currently is probably the only one I would firmly say 'no' to. I think I'd like living in a less crowded place, but North Dakota needs to step up its things-to-do game before I sacrifice myself in the harsh winters.

Maybe (southeastern) South Dakota. Sioux Falls isn't nothing, and Omaha, Lincoln, and the Twin Cities aren't outrageously far.

South Dakota. I think Sioux Falls is pretty sweet.
Then again I haven't spent much time at all in the others.

As a mid-20s something I seriously considered living in Wyoming (c. 1976). Now I like warmer a climate. Maybe as a retiree, I'd get a 2nd home near Saratoga somewhere for fishing.

Idaho. Just for Boise alone and that it's closer to the west coast. I've been to South Dakota and Wyoming. They are too isolated for me.

1. Wyoming--in the valley region near Grand Teton National Park. Good cold winters with plenty of snow and while the summers can be hot during the day, they cool down nicely at night. Beautiful scenery as well.

2. North Dakota--Bismarck area would be decent. Dry but tolerable since at least the summer is rainy.

3. South Dakota--Looks like it has some interesting cities like Lead and also a lot of natural attractions.

4. Montana

5. Idaho

I already live in Wyoming so that's my number one choice because I love it here. Next would be Montana, Idaho, South Dakota, and last is North Dakota, only because I've never been there before.

Idaho and Montana. Just visited these two beautiful states for the first time on a road trip last month. I'd go with Idaho first, given its ideal population density, mountains, greenery, and as some others have said, it's close(r) to the ocean.

I ski. North and South Dakota are off my list.

Whatever state is less prone to natural disasters.
