I'd have to say that I still choose Alabama as my favorite place to be. I've lived from one end of the state to the other and haven't had a bad experience here. Second would be the Florida panhandle since we seem to spend about 1/3 of the year there.


I did enjoy going to New York to sightsee a bit on my last work trip. We are going back next month so I'll get to see it in the fall. But it's overcrowded for me and I couldn't live there.


My least favorite is Pennsylvania (except for Gettysburg). I was in Harrisburg and Chambersburg. There just really isn't anything there. I prefer to avoid PA if I get the chance.

what is your favorite state in the US?
For Visiting... CA, AK, CO, WY I like Mtns. (and FEW people in those Mtns)

For LIVING.. Definitely NOT CA, ($$$$ + too many People + too many cars + CARB + taxes) AK, (too far, too DARK in winter... good time to head to NZ!) CO (way too much confrontation young and restless males with guns, and a BATTLEGROUND political state) ...


(WY, WA, SD, NH, TX...) Lots to do nearby, CHEAP flights, decent colleges, No income tax and nice people...(most neighbors are nice, some 'turkeys' as is the case everywhere)

To me it's not the specific state itself it's what you have access to and how strategically it's located geographically... I could totally live in Las Vegas because you have easy access to one of the strongest airports in the country.

But you know, Rabbit, the northern third of CA (everything N of Sac) is very lightly populated and has some of the best scenery too (Redwoods, Lost Coast, Mt Shasta, Mt Lassen). People would think about it more often if it were a state unto itself. But of course the urban regions are where the $$ are, so "Jefferson" would be a rather poor state, even with the MJ.

NY for the beaches in the summer. CO for the mountains in the winter. NJ for the rest of the time due to its close proximity to everything.

It is still California, although some places have gotten too expensive to even visit.

California. I wouldn't want to live there, but I sure do love to vacation there.
