Of the 4 states listed, my choice would be Missouri. I'm partial to the interior states.

Missouri or Washington. Way too many people in Florida, lots of crime, lots of unemployment not to mention the hurricanes. Conneticut is too expensive, and again lots of people in such a small area.

Washington or Missouri. Probably Washington. Florida is too full of people from Connecticut who have gone there to die.

I love Missouri, but I love Florida too. You cannot beat the ocean, I don't care what you say. But, Florida has a lot of negatives - hurricanes being one. I would definitely stay here, but if I were independently wealthy, I'd buy a second home in Florida and spend quite a lot of time there as well.

In this order: Washington, (large gap), Connecticut, (HUGE gap), Florida, Missouri. Washington is probably my ideal state in the country. I'm a Western guy, for sure.
