even live in that place. Guthrie OK, is one of the best perserved places in the

Sorry, but I think too many visiting people in the past have come away from Oklahoma with a very sour note against the state and passed the negative news back to their friends and relatives after they went back home. For instance, many people have visited Oklahoma and were utterly bewildered when learning about the controversial issues raised in the news. For instance, banning **** fighting, legalizing tattooing and gambling, banning Penthouse magazine and the movie Tin Drum, and allowing wineries. They were bewildered because such issues got settled in their states decades and decades ago.

I bet there's plenty of people who have not forgiven Oklahoma for it's liquor laws that had been so backward. For instance, in the past many a jetting business traveler consuming an alcoholic beverage would end up getting it snatched out of his hands by the flight attendant because the plane was about to enter dry air space--Oklahoma. The businessmen must that have thought that prohibition went out with the Great Depression, but Oklahoma was still lodged in the depression.

Thankfully, Oklahoma in recent years has become less up tight and not so foolishly conservative, but peoples' bad memories don't automatically vanish when unjust, antiquated laws in a state vanish.

South Florida!!!
Neat trees, beautiful beaches, great women, and knowing the fact that you don't need to be a multimillionaire to live there.

Well, I certainly haven't been to anywhere near all 50 states, but I've been to nearly half of them at one time or another. I would have to say that there is something that I have liked about each of the ones I've been to, in addition to things I haven't liked. Parts of each state were beautiful, while other parts were very bland.

I have spent a lot of my life in California, and love the geographical and ecological diversity. What I don't like are the high taxes, the high cost of living, the socialist government, and the overpopulation. These reasons (along with the prospect of these things increasing) are enough to make me want to leave the state when the opportunity arises for me to do so.

California, though I have only been to 15 states....but the whole U.S.A is just so diverse....it really is the most diverse nation on Earth I think, so beautiful, and personally believe California is the most diverse of the states, just so amazing. My goal is to take a road trip and visit all lower 48 states, and of course see Alaska and Hawaii some other way.

What, no plug for Wisconsin yet? I love the Northwoods, the pine trees, the lakes, the Friday Night fish fries at the local supper clubs, the 4 million little breweries, the brats, the cheese curds, the Oktoberfests, the radio stations playing polka music... A lakeside cabin, a fishing boat and a Hobiecat in upper Wisconsin is my idea of paradise.

I like the landscape in Minnesota too, maybe even a little more than in Wisonsin because it's less crowded and less "commercialized" . . . but I like the German-infused culture of Wisconsin more.

What's my favorite state? That's a really tough question to answer because every state has its own unique qualities that makes it a favorite. Obviously, the most common answer you'll hear for this question is the person's own home state, and I'm sure their reasons are legitimate.

My home state is Arizona and there are a lot of things I love about it, but overall, I can say that I don't really have a favorite because every state in our nation is beautiful.

California is by far my favorite state. It has everything, it should be a seperate country. New York City is my favorite city, second is nearby Washington DC.
If anyone is on here from Alabama, I have lots of good revues of that state.
Everyone I have met from there are very friendly. Any pics of Alabama would be appreciated. Thanks.
