blah.. too cold here, as in eastern South Dakota... you guys in the cities have it better because you still have trees, lakes, and the Mississippi river, at least it's not flat, farmland along with the bitter cold. Eastern MN would make my top 10 but not the western part of the state. Very subjective opinion here. These areas are a great place to raise a family because cold helps keep the 'riff raff' out and also means lower unemployment and better access to decent jobs... for people who dislike the heat it's paradise, for me, not so much.

On the other hand, Texas is way too hot. I'd rather pick a location like... hmm... Virginia or North Carolina, maybe western Oregon.. also western South Dakota, Western Nebraska, and eastern Colorado for the chinook winds in the winter... if good paying manufacturing work wasn't so hard to come by but I'd rather have a good job and no state income tax and stay put for now. Likelyhood of finding another 20/hr job... relatively low. That may change.. I may just up and quit sometime and make the move I always dream about... life's too short for flat and cold.

In my book, MN is #1. There's nothing in New Hampshire. It's basically a commuter state of Boston, MA.

It's alright to like Minnesota the most, but to say there's nothing in New Hampshire isn't very true, nice or open minded. Sure there's a lot of commuters from NH to Boston, but that happens ALL across the USA near the borders of various states!

I once lived near the border of New Hampshire and Maine and did a lot of camping in NH and found it absolutely beautiful and I plan to go back for a visit someday. But then again I found much to love about New England and am glad for my time there.

If we didn't have such long winters, I'd agree MN is the best state. Some winter is cool... but it drags too long often times.

I know what you mean. Last year was a tough "spring" since we were still having winter weather (snowfalls) in April! I have always said that when I'm in a position to leave MN for 2-3 months out of the year it will be March and April, and maybe May. That way when I come back home I'll see actual signs of spring and summer. Oh well, I grin and bare it because I do love living in the north half of the US and Minnesota particularly.
