Um has anyone been to places that aren't California? Sorry, but there's ZERO reason why this poll should be so lopsided.

My guess is most of you haven't been to Utah or Wyoming.

The poll would be better without CA. If you google any most beautiful state list, California is always, without fail, at the top. Results would definitely be more interesting if you take it out.

Washington, even though I'm a California native, and tend to agree that it is indeed beautiful. It just hasn't quite inspired me the way Washington does.

California has mountains like other Western states, ocean, desert, valleys, lakes... Basically every element of natural beauty except for tundra, prairie and maybe a few others. The sheer diversity of landscape is remarkable. And it has legit world-class urban environments as well.

I have been in all 48 of them and I have to say that the USA is one beautiful country. There is great and wonderful beauty in all of the states.
