- Preferred Location: Louisiana (New Orleans only)
- Brighter Future: Indiana
- Best Major Cities: Louisiana with New Orleans
- Best Secondary Cities: Indiana
- Topography & Landscapes: Louisiana due to the coast
- Economy: Indiana
- Higher Education: Indiana
- Weather: Slight edge to Indiana, even though the winters in the northern part are brutal
- Sports: Gonna go Indiana here by a nose
- The State I Prefer is? Louisiana due to warmer weather, New Orleans and the coastline water views

Louisiana gets the nod from me because of New Orleans alone. The culture, character and just absolute incredible soul of that city wins it hands-down. It's an interesting comparison because Indianapolis is pretty far, almost opposite, from New Orleans comparing all of the culture, character and spirit/soulful vibe of the cities.

Indiana is flat, Louisiana is flat. The coastline is what gives me the edge, along with New Orleans.

Southern Indiana is actually very hilly.

I hate the politics in Indiana, but I do actually like living here.

New Orleans is one of the most unique places in the country. What an amazing city. I love New Orleans, probably my favorite place to visit in the southern US.

Aside from New Orleans, I've only been to Baton Rouge and Lafayette. I prefer Fort Wayne and Evansville over those cities. To be fair, I've spent more time in FW and Eville obviously.

I think long term, Indiana is pretty well situated as a state if the conservative politics don't torpedo everything.

Southern Indiana is great. We have modest caves, decent places to hike, and a few lakes. Obviously we don't have mountains, but Hoosier National Forest is awesome and so is Indiana Dunes.

I think Louisiana's unique qualities are more obvious than Indiana's, which can make the state more interesting to visit when one doesn't have a specific destination or event in mind. But Indiana performs better at the basics - economy, public safety, infrastructure and education that have major impacts on everyday life for most people.

Reactionary conservative politics are unfortunately a very salient feature for many states at the present time. I haven't heard about much particularly crazy legislation coming out of Indiana lately however, and Louisiana has a Democratic governor so there is some balance.

Both states also have a Lafayette which is growing solidly and has a major public university in or near the city.

Ah, ok, never spent time there in that part of the state.

But since the highest point in Indiana is just 1,257 feet, it ain't that high up. Indiana is relatively flat compared to most states.

In fact, Indiana is in the top 10 states with the shortest "highest elevations."

Louisiana's highest point is 535 feet high--so both LA and IN are relatively close.
