    I'm going with Alaska - in addition to not having to deal with other states, it has the oil payments, pristine wilderness areas, salmon, beautiful mountains and much cleaner air than everyone except Hawaii.

    After seeing the Norwegian Beach Women's Volleyball Team play today against Belgium, I am changing my answer to Norway.
    I am moving there later this week as a result.

    Re: What state is the coolest?

    For all those saying Hawaii, trust me, it has its flaws. Unless you actually live there for a while, it seems like a great place to live. Here are some facts on Oahu.

    Oahu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The scenery is beautiful, but it can get old.

    Oahu is pretty packed. It only has 3 highways. If one goes down, it can get ugly. Some Army guys took out a pedestrian walkway over the H-1 at around 2:30p one afternoon, just after I got to work. At 11p when I got off, traffic was still backed up to Waikiki. It took some people over 8 hours to get home that day.

    The cost of living is pretty high. I shopped at the commissary and paid over $4 for milk. In the other stores, it was closer to $6.

    There are a lot of clubs in Waikiki and they're open til 4a. Lots of tourists and military at the clubs and bars.

    The other islands have far less people, but they also have far less to stimulate their economies. The major industry is tourism for all of the islands. Oahu has the military, Pearl Harbor Shipyard, and shipping. The other islands smaller industries are agriculture and scientific research.

    The weather is actually pretty mild, on Oahu anyway. Temperatures range from 60s (at night, during "winter" months) to mid-90s (even the middle of summer). It can get really windy and it rains a lot during the winter and spring months.

    It's a really nice place to visit, but I wouldn't recommend selling everything to move out there. You may easily get disappointed.

    I've heard the cost of living is high there; higher than any other state.
    My aunt lived there briefly, as sort of a beach bum/ surfer chick after dropping out of college back in the late 60s. She said it was very beautiful, but everything was very expensive.
    However, I'm used to making sacrifices in order to live in good places.
    It seems to me that anywhere worth living, the cost of living is going to be high.
    If a place has a low cost of living, it's probably because nobody wants to live there.

    It isn't much of a competition when you're home to the coolest city on the planet.

    Never question my love of Sweetness!! I could only post five pics. And let's not get started on the cross-town rivarly. That debate would be too contentious even for the basement...
