The Carolinas and Georgia deserve more love. Stunning rolling mountains, beautiful Piedmont hills, sexy coastal shores, and great in-between sights. Amazing flora and fauna, and plenty of charming cities and towns.

Who voted for Iowa? LOL. If seeing corn fields for miles is beautiful to you, then so be it.

I think those votes went to Virginia, which has also has "stunning rolling mountains, beautiful Piedmont hills, sexy coastal shores, great in-between sights, amazing flora and fauna, and plenty of charming cities and towns." Plus an unmatched history (Alexandria, Charlottesville, Jamestown, Leesburg, Manassas, Richmond, Williamsburg, Yorktown). Only Charleston and Savannah compare favorably in historical terms.

For sure, the thing is they are both solidly nice, but clearly not stunning first place winners.

I wouldn't rank Iowa #1, but it certainly has it's charms, particularly the southern part of the state with the rolling fields, big red barns and white farm houses dotting the landscape.

All that is true but as this writing Virginia has 12 votes while North Carolina and Pennsylvania have only 4 votes each. Very strange, especially since North Carolina has such a long beautiful coast and some of the highest mountains in the East. Even more strange to me is how New York State, which also has mountains and dramatic waterfalls and seven thousand lakes (Virginia in contrast has only two natural lakes) only has 3 votes, the same as New Jersey!

The Western states generally have much more dramatic scenery then other states, especially the mountains. California, Washington and Oregon also have beautiful coastlines so it is not surprising that they are winning by a fair amount. I myself voted for Washington.

Now if we able to vote on a poll if we consider each state to be beautiful, yes or no, then I think you would see almost everyone voting yes for Vermont and many yes for Connecticut as well.

Why does history matter? All 4 were original colonies and they all became states at the same time, minus NC which a year later. So I don't know about "unmatched history." All 4 are pretty historic in one way or another.

Virginia is beautiful, but the Carolinas and Georgia are just as beautiful IMO. Virginia's mountains are glorious, but you really can't beat the Carolina coast.
