I wouldn't get upset over Texas being left off since 7 other states were as well. There are only a total of 42 states listed and NB, whatever state that is. It can't be New Brunswick because it isn't a state in Canada or here.

HUMOR!! get it. And you are right New Brunswick isn't a state in Canada, it is a Province.

I think the OP meant Nebraska and typed in NB instead of NE.

I unfourtunately live in Arkansas. The one good thing I like about my state is the low cost of living. It was the only good thing I could think of.
As for my city of North Little Rock, I like that the school district has the International Baccalaureate Programme available for all the kids, free of charge. I went through it. It was a lot of hard work ( a lot of which I didn't care to do) but I'm glad I had that experience to prepare me for college level work.

I moved to Nevada a few months ago (Reno), and here's what I do and don't like about it:

Dislikes:
- Almost no dense urbanity, Reno and Vegas are both very sprawling
- No distinct accents anywhere I've been, very standard American English aside from some California influences, and also little local culture or traditions of any kind
- Not especially international, apart from Latino immigrants
- Expensive considering the modest wages, which has led to a huge homelessness problem
- Hilly terrain and high elevation often make driving unsafe in the winter when ice forms
- Isolation from other major metros (in Chicago we could get to Milwaukee, Madison, Indianapolis, Peoria, St. Louis, etc. for an event or a weekend trip)

Likes:
- Gorgeous scenery
- Fascinating history, with many ghost towns and mining villages serving as illustrations
- Rapid population growth leads to an atmosphere of continued improvement and excitement to see what the future has in store for us
- There's actually four seasons without either the winters or summers being painfully extreme
- Not a lot of traffic, maybe because this town's still being discovered by big employers
- Interesting (and surprisingly varied) architecture
- Maybe more murals, sculptures, and art galleries per capita than I've seen elsewhere (assuredly the beautiful landscapes and cultural narratives of the sinful gambling and divorce towns serve as inspirations)
- The open-minded, "live and let live" attitude- I know this is a cliche and I actually didn't notice it right away, but there's a general lack of the "you're not a normal meat-eating Anglo-Saxon Christian so I'm gonna poke fun at you" attitude I'm used to from the Midwest- which may in part come from the lack of an old, established church presence

North Carolina:

Family
Friends
College sports
Booming economy means things are constantly changing, being built out
Weekend in the mountains or beach
I love the weather, though I can concede it isn’t for everyone
As a parent of a teenager, I’m happy with the variety of universities

I like the affordability of Ohio, the change of seasons, older cities and buildings, overall friendliness of the people. Main drawbacks are the lack of food variety and backwards mentality of a lot of the people here (but certainly not all).
