Thats a tough question for me because I loved a lot of places Ive visited, more than once. Though Im from Calif, I loved the green pastures and open land in WI. Folks there were very friendly. Oklahoma was definately down home and I would live there in a heartbeat. Tx was okay. Up near Seattle was good but I wouldnt want to live there. Ive never been to NYC but my daughter and I are tenatively planning a trip there in Sept, Im saving my sick/vacation days for that one.
So that probably narrows the answer to either WI or OK.

I haven't been to all 50 states, but I'll have to go with my home state of Michigan. You're never far from one of the Great Lakes. Mackinac Island is a paradise. The Upper Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen, capped off by gorgeous Lake Superior.

Other faves would include New Hampshire (for the Live Free or Die independent streak of the natives!), Massachusetts (Boston is oozing with history and colonial charm, and Walden Pond is breathtaking), and Illinois (mainly because I adore Chicago).

I love to travel, and as others have said I just can't pick a favorite. I hope to have visited every state someday. I do love my home state of South Carolina, though! Beaches and mountains, it's all I need.

I've only been to Oklahoma twice and loved it. Those are gorgeous pics, by the way. I love to travel too, when vacation allows, and am tenatively planning a trip to NYC with my daughter in Sept.
I have a few favourites though, where I would love to see...on a more permanent basis. Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Alabama.

Where I'm from, the oft-maligned, so-called unlovely and non-picturesque plains and farmland of rural Illinois.

There's something to love about every state! I have to say there's something special about three though:

Colorado






Oregon






Tennessee

Massachusetts (the history & culture), Maine (the scenery), Pennsylvania (the farm country), NYC (you either love it or you hate it and I love it), and some parts of Florida (Miami Beach & Pensacola)

The northern part of the state is completely different in looks, climate and culture from the southern portion. And the fact that it's home to San Francisco, one of my favorite cities on Earth, is massive plus too.
me also with Boston, however I love San Francisco!

What is this a photography contest? Great posts. I tried to give some reputation, but I was told I have to spread it around. Some of you could go into the postcard business and make a living.
