I want to see a list of the top 10 states you folks would want to live in... Feel free to go into detail why

I already know my list is going to get hated on because the states are considered boring!! that's ok tho!

1.) Iowa (Home state, love the scenery -- especially the flattest of flat areas, like the weather, and I like the culture)
2.) Nebraska (Same as above, just not home state)
3.) Kansas (Ranch country)
4.) Oklahoma (Heart of tornado alley, cool native american culture, beautiful scenery, don't care for the ozark areas tho)
5.) South Dakota (Good state like Iowa, like Sioux Falls)
6.) Idaho (Boise would be great, breathtaking scenery in Idaho, good conservative culture)
7.) Colorado (AMAZING, love the rockies and the change in scenery from north to south)
8.) Minnesota (a little too liberal but it's an ok state)
9.) Wisconsin (I love door county, period)
10.) North Dakota (this place would be sweet)
