True. Very true. They never give Texas credit. They always say look at Texas size it's not fair. The OP didnt ask weather it was fair or not. Although I agree NY state is pretty diverse, but to put it ahead of Texas is a crime. NY is number 3 behind the BIG 2, CA and TX. Even Texans admit that CA is ahead of them but, NY'ERS wont admit Texas is waaaay ahead of them. Yes NY for as small as it is does hold it's own pretty darn well, BUT lets be serious here TX owns NY and CA is number 1. Thats the order of things. Noone is bashing NY here.

It dosent have more variety. NY definately holds it's own for it's size, but it definately dosent have more variety then TX. I'll give NY credit for it's size, but then again if we're talking about size CALI still owns everyone. Because of what I stated earlier about LA county and the fact that you can go to the beach in 65-70 degree weather, then go SNOW-SKIING in the San Gabriel mountains within an hour, in the same county. That has nothing to do with Californias size as a state. In NY you would have to drive upstate from the beaches to do that.

When you bring up beaches in Texas, people always only refer to Galveston, but forget about South Padre Island which is very nice. I could go from feeling like I'm in Louisiana swamps to a coastal city to Mexico to deserts to the west to the midwest and more all in one state. In NY, you got NYC and northern NY, it ends there.

In Texas you got South Texas, West Texas, East Texas, North Texas, and Hill country. Each offering a different feeling and atmosphere. West Texas equals your stereotypical Texan feel, East Texas gives you that deep southern feel with the tall trees and swamps, South Texas has that Mexico/ South America feel, Hill country makes you feel like your not even in Texas anymore with the colorful trees and rolling hills, and north Texas makes you feel like your in the midwest with the prairies and small rolling hills.
And I don't believe you give WA credit, which is very stupid.

I've already stated WA is a very beautiful state, but many people would agree with me that it dosen't have more variety than TX.

Lol...no your right...it's the only way to make the area comparable in reality to either TX, or CA. No one in their right mind would compare any New England State to TX, or CA in this topic. The topic isn't variety "considering the size", it's variety period.
