Depends on what kind of scenery you prefer. I am partial to scenery in places in the Northeast outside urban areas, the rural Upper Midwest and rural Upper South. Also rural Pacific Northwest is breath taking. There's also an appeal to the rural plains but for different reasons

North Dakota down to west central Texas has that Great Plains scenery. It's not the same as a charming forest or a rugged snowcapped mountain but its an acquired taste. I think its most beautiful in the spring when the wildflowers bloom, everything is green and there's a chance of stormy skies and even tornadoes!

Every state is in the top 50.

It is also entirely a matter of opinion. For example, I consider big rocky peaks to be stunning and beautiful, but far from charming.

For charming I prefer rolling, green, countryside of forests broken by occasional small farms, pastures, and villages. Like one sees, for example, in Pennsylvania or southern Ohio and the Appalachians.

That one can't be beat.

In New England, Hardwick, Vermont and Hardwick, Mass make a charming pair. As do Woodstock, Connecticut and Woodstock, Vermont.

New England. It has the biggest range of charm, from coastal bluffs and villages, sandy beaches, gorgeous Islands (MV/BI/Nantucket), mountains in VT/NH, Maine coast, green woods that turn to amazing foliage, streams, covered bridges, rolling farmland, waterfalls, Colonial architecture everywhere, etc.

California is high on the list of natural beauty, but I wouldn’t call it charming. Epic is more like it.
