I'm guessing this list is throwing shade at Atlanta for the huge land area of its Metro (being larger than many states)..

I suppose the states of Seattle, Boston, Minneapolis and Detroit also deserve honorable mentions.

Boston is comparable to the Vatican in size and attitude.

Here's my $.02:

Florida: way too many people in a swampy floodplain.
New York: the rest of the state outside of the NYC area looks like a solid area with nice cities and lots of public land if you like 4 seasons.
Texas: There used to be cool things like jaguars and cougars and lots of bats roaming around Texas, now there's just longhorns. Ugh. The neat geographic areas of Texas are kind of stagnant economically, there's hardly any public land, and the big cities are too big.
California: The north part is the best part if the failure that is PG&E would stop causing wildfires and shutting off the power all the time.
Ohio: Underrated. Prettier trees, nicer neighborhoods, and cleaner downtowns than many other places in the US.
Nevada: The place to get away from it all...
Mississippi: The people are both wonderful and terrible...
Atlanta and SC: IDK
Montana: Still a frontier mountain area. Great option for a vacation.

Out of these I picked California, I'd live anywhere in California. Georgia would be second, either Atlanta or Savannah. New York state would be third, obviously New York City or Long Island, but I think the rest of the state is nice and I'd consider living anywhere in New York state.

2. California- I love San Diego, because its next to Tijuana which I love to death as a place for sin.
Actually, New Mexico is doing quite well as far as jobs and job growth lately. Poverty is also going down and incomes are going up.

As far as wide open spaces, I prefer the other side of the country. Montana is big sky country and incredibly scenic.
Yeah, I don't know what New Mexico you're seeing. The New Mexico I see is filled with beautiful places and scenery. It snowed in the northern part of the state recently and Albuquerque is beautiful right now in the fall with the cottonwoods and other trees painting the valley in color. The architecture in New Mexico is spectacular as well, from ruins to churches to public buildings to homes. New Mexico is a very unique, special and beautiful place. That's why it has attracted so many artists, famous and wealthy people to live here over the years.

A few pictures of beautiful Albuquerque and its environs all taken within the last two weeks:

Atlanta isn't a state, LMAO. Honestly, I would live in Hawaii if I had the money but my fiance and I have decided on the California desert until my screenwriting career takes off (negotiating a deal right now). Eventually, we hope to settle in NorCal or northern Nevada - or maybe western Colorado.
