Texas has different "feels" in different parts of the state, with South Texas being one extreme example. That's a good chunk of the state and they've got a whole different thing going on down there.

California has this one in the bag, by a million miles. Oklahoma would be a close second.

Oklahoma 2nd? You think so? I think Texas beats it because Texas has the coastline and the Western mountains. Although Oklahoma does have green country in Eastern Oklahoma.

Chihuahuan Desert - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Well I may have been wrong. But I learned in geology that the only desert in the US was in Arizona, Nevada, Southeastern California, New Mexico, Southern Utah, and Southwestern Colorado is what you will call desert.

Florida may not be geographicaly diverse but it does have different feels. Like Miami and Tallahassee. Fort Lauderdale and Pensacola.

CA, first by a long shot. Second, NY. Third would be quite distant, not sure which, maybe TX or PA.

Not saying your wrong, because I've heard that Texas don't have deserts, but looking it up it says Texas includes part of the Chihuahuan desert.

*Shakes head* I wouldn't of even responded if you would've just left out the distant part, but are you seriously saying NY has more variety than TX??
