Florida has always been one of my favorite Southern states to visit. I enjoy the many different aspects to natural Florida from it's beaches, to the swamps in south central Florida and the Pine forests to the North.







Where I live now, in Kentucky, has many breathtaking sights. I find it to be one of the most beautiful states I have ever hiked and travelled through, and I am happy to now call it home.

North Carolina easily. The Blue Ridge Mountains are just hard to beat IMO.

Depends on what you want your definition of the South to include. The modern definition of "Dixie" excludes Texas, Virginia, northern Kentucky, Florida below the panhandle, West Virginia, and Oklahoma.

So among the Dixie, old south states, I believe North Carolina would probably the winner, based on the diversity of its landscape -- from its coast to the tallest segments of the Appalachians.

But if your definition is to include all the states listed in the poll -- the more general definition of the South, then I would argue that Texas wins. It has everything from a Gulf Coast beaches, pineywoods similar to that of other southern states, rolling prairies, the southern portion of the Great Plains, the Hill Country, to outright southwest desert and mountains in its far western region. It has too much variety not to be the winner.

I'd disagree with Texas and Virginia; the vast majority of both of those states are included in the modern definition of Dixie IMO. WV and OK have always been borderline though.
