Hawaii is practically an Asian island. There is a lot of Indo-Asian influence. It just happens to be a state because Americans wanted to take vacations to a tropical paradise and still be in America. WWI and WWII also brought more Americans to the islands.

Like someone else said, many people there do not want to be part of the union. Which brings me to my next question: Might Puerto Rico be the most un-American state? Ya know, considering it's not really American nor a state.

AND they're both subject to mockery by residents of the lower 48-states. That's gotta count for something. But Hawaii, I would say, is definitely least like the rest of the U.S.
Exactly. I lived in Canada and married one. In addition to the climate, geography and wildlife, I also find the personalities of the Canadian and Alaskan people very similar (outdoorsy, rugged individualism, introspective).

I have to disagree with this. The Valley is even more different from Mexico than it is from the rest of the US.

Default Utah

Mormons put Mormonism before being American. Entire state is in its own world. In Salt Lake Pioneer Day, day that Brigham Young arrived at Wasatch Front and declared it to be "THE PLACE", more important to Mormons than the 4th of July.

I think the people who judge other people too much are unamerican. This country is suppose to be free and diverse and the fact that there has to be one way to be American is untrue.
