But saying that the states as a whole are unworthy for living...

I was not trying to start anything, I was expressing my opinion. I am a generally diplomatic person.

Illinois I live here. Chicago with its lake front is a beautiful city. Metro area has anything you want. The rest of the state is like a backyard and the gov't treats it that way. For that reason I'm getting out. Cost of living is burdensome for someone on a fixed income. More potholes per mile than any other road system in the country. Politicians so crooked they have to screw them into the ground when they die. Stay Away.

Minnesota and Wisconsin the frozen tundra Oct to April YUK

Minnesota and Wisconsin consistently rank among the most educated states in the nation, and states with the best health-care in the nation. For Wisconsinites and Minnesotans, the weather is just a minor inconvenience, some even like it.

And, I would say Late November-Early/Mid March... October is very pleasant temperatures 45-65 and April is very warm usually, with temperatures topping 75 degrees by the end of the month.

I would say just stay out of Minnesota. As much as I like it here, I don't think OP would.

Wow, that is tough. There are some really great areas in a lot of these states. For example, Grand Rapids is a really nice city but I would never recommend living in the Detroit area (did for many many years). Milwaukee is a great city, Cinncinati (the parts I've seen I liked driving through, Chicago is great downtown but I don't like the suburbs. I've never been to Maryland or Minnesota, so I deduct the following:

Illinois
Indiana
New York
Ohio
Michigan

I can only help you exclude two from this list.

Maryland- high cost of living, a sanctuary state for illegals, high crime (not just in Baltimore), high taxes, a horrible govenor
Michigan- going through too much chaos with the economy and Detroit (need i say more)

Two NOT to exclude:

Virginia- Except for the Northern Part around DC offers something for everybody
North Carolina- would not be growing at the rate it is if there wasn't anything good
