Scotslass, I would say that western Tennessee has a bit of a Mississippi-esque feel. Particularly Memphis; I've heard people say that they tend to associate the history of Memphis and the music scene in western Tennessee with the culture of the Mississippi Delta. Alabama's culture is similar, but I would say is also quite different from MS, as it has the Gulf Shores and the connection with the beaches of northern Florida. This is atypical of a Deep South state.

Can you make one post without that insufferable tone of condescending snobbishness? It's extremely immature and quite telling when one dedicates half their postings to making smug, backhanded comments about other states.

I've only been to Georgia, as a teenager, and what I remember most is stopping at a fruit stand and getting the best peaches I've ever had in my life. This was years ago, and I still remember those peaches. The only other time I was in Georgia was at the Hartsfield/Atlanta airport waiting to switch flights.

Everyone I've ever met who has been to Tennessee says it is one of the most beautiful places they've ever seen, so I would like to visit there. On the list after that would be Kentucky. I'd like to see the horse country.

Tennessee, it's my adopted home state! East Tennessee is absolutely gorgeous and has pretty much anything I could ever want, except it's a little lacking in the golden, sandy beaches department.

Kentucky would probably be next, since the bits of it I'm familiar with are quite a lot like TN.

Next would be Alabama. Lived there and enjoyed it for the most part. The charm of downtown Mobile with the moss dripping live oaks along the streets, to Dauphin Island beaches, to the hills and lakes of northern Alabama.

Haven't seen enough of Georgia to know for sure, but I have family there and they say it's a lot like Alabama, so I guess it would be next on the list for me.

Mississippi would be last on my list. I like the beaches along the coast, but other than that I haven't seen anywhere in Mississippi that I really care for, and the scenery leaves me a little flat.

I'd say Alabama, I used to drive up US 431 around Eufala every morning and it was breathtaking beautiful with the fog rising off the lakes at daybreak.

Tennessee I lived in for awhile, really pretty there, nice people, but I just felt landlocked after awhile, it wasn't for me.

Having lived in the NE corner of Alabama and since only one other voted for it so far, that fine beautiful state received my vote... While I like some parts of Mississippi, can't say that it'd be in top 20 states to choose. Kentucky, that is a different story - bluegrass, horses, flowing water, people, etc. make that a very good state. However, for me, anywhere w/in ~150 mile radius of Chattanooga, that is awesome gorgeous scenic area, with wonderful people, food, culture, and weather - and that area includes then more than just one of these states on your poll .

Tennessee, but mostly only because I have family there and have had the chance to get to know it better than the other states listed.

Georgia is my favorite out of the states listed. But Tennessee is close behind. Then Mississippi. Alabama after that. Kentucky would be my least favorite. I could see myself living in any of these states, but would prefer Georgia, Tennessee, or Mississippi. Alabama would be one of my top choices if they changed some stuff (not going into detail).

I also like MS because when I visited it was very open, lots of land to hunt on. I like being close to a big town though like Tupelo, low cost of living there too.


I have friends that are moving to Bloomington, IN. They said it was a great place to live.

And I suppose such comments make senior members a little less rude than others? Guess not.

For the record, your back handed "compliment" to my state was not much appreciated. I certainly hope that was a mere slip. If so, ok, I can buy that. It just struck me very, very wrong. One should choose one's words more carefully.

BTW, what part of heaven are you from?

I know MS gets the worst name out there, is it as bad as many make it out to be? Is it just as good as AL and the rest?
