I don't think Colorado is THAT friendly, Yorkie_Mom. But it's a better than a lot of other places.
Something else Rawlings and I agree on. Read the Colorado forums.

NCTarheels, THANK YOU for specifically stating NORTH Jersey, instead of what so many people do and just lump us all together in New Jersey. I live in South Jersey, and people are as friendly here as anyplace in the Midwest or South.

I have to say though, I have found more friendly people within the city of Philadelphia than in the outlying suburbs - which I am very familiar with. I have friends who still live in the Philly 'burbs, and they are looking to retire to the Carolinas after the kids are out of school and they retire from their jobs because they just can't stand the tone of the people moving into the area. Decidedly not friendly.
As in any city or town, there are those individuals who identify themselves with their addre$$, and if it's a certain $ection, it occasionally affects the friendliness factor.

For sure.. most Philly-ans are very friendly, and most Pennsylvanian's are some of the nicest people ever (Espcially dutch country), but there's a rather aggressive attidute in the city IMO.


I agree with you on the Jersey comment, North Jersey and South Jersey shoulnd't be part of the same state their so different. I love south Jersey.. North Jersey on the other hand.. no thanks.

If we're going to split hairs like this - it should be NORTHEASTERN NJ. NW NJ is, as I've posted before - scary friendly.

Idaho is an exceptionally friendly state.

The most unfriendly obvious are New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland (due to northern transplants), California and the District of Columbia (overrun with political types from up north and by illegal immigrants and ghetto trash).

Yes it is, South Jersey totally different. But just over the river from NY from this perspective, it feels much more relaxed and the people more talkative than the other side of the Hudson. S. Jersey though is a different state of mind altogether when I have to call down there for business.

Are we talking Vineland, Glassboro here?

The friendliest people are in New Jersey and Massachusetts.



hahaha


Darn, I knew I couldn't keep a straight face.




Although if you are talking just metropolitan areas, no place touches Philadelphia
for friendliness.

Hahaha, I did it again.

Seriously, the friendliest people are in the south and Texas. Not even close
