    What state is the coolest?

    I was thinking about this today, and it's a tough call for me.

    • California has, far and away, the best year-round weather of any state in the country.
    • Utah has the best economy.
    • North Carolina has the friendliest people (in my experience)
    • New York has the coolest city, with Texas/California/NC close behind
    • DC has the most "urban" beauty, with New York and Illinois close behind
    • Alaska has the most natural beauty, with Colorado a distant second
    • Washington, Tennessee, and Louisiana have the best music scenes
    • Texas and California have the most diversity among cities in close proximity to each other
    • Alabama and South Carolina have the hottest chicks
    • Massachusetts has the smartest people and best universities
    • Ohio and Michigan have the lowest cost of living
    • Wisconsin and Texas have the best bargains in housing (IMO)
    • Louisiana has the most, err, creative system of government
    • Florida has the best vacation spots
    • Vermont and New Hampshire have the lowest crime rates
    • Hawaii doesn't have to put up with any **** from neighboring states
    • Colorado has the best selection of outdoor activities, with Washington and Oregon close behind



    Overall...
    I'd have to rank the coolest states as such: 1) California, 2) North Carolina, 3) Texas

    I like Chicago a lot too. But I'd like it a lot better if it A) wasn't in the Midwest, and B) wasn't so dang cold.

    Re: What state is the coolest?

    North Carolina - it's got mountains, ocean, rolling hills, a rich history, plenty of country side and small towns, and all four seasons (and a good bit of my family) it's not as expensive as WA or HI the last two states I've lived in

    BTW, I know it's not part of the question, but I think HI is the worst Definitely a "nice place to visit, wouldn't want to live there(in my case again)" type place
    Lava mountains and ocean but it only takes about 2 hours to drive all the way around Oahu, lots of people, mostly tourists, very little wide open spaces, lots of traffic, high cost of living, and two seasons, summer and rainy

    I don't know much about any state except Texas, which is kind of like the little curly-headed girl in the nursery rhyme: when it's good, it's very, very good, and when it's bad, it's horrid.

    Well, I was raised here. I just haven't lived here in the last 11 years, til now that is. When I was younger I couldn't wait to leave and live in other states. But after I got to live in a few other states, I realized how much I missed this one.

    Re: What state is the coolest?

    None of the above.

    West Virginia is the best because it's beautiful, there's so many varied things to do there in every season, the weather is mild year round (there are distinct seasons, but they are mild compared to other states), the humidity isn't bad, the bugs aren't bad, all kinds of water everywhere, low crime rate, low population, very few sucky "urban" areas, and it has the lowest occurance of natural disasters.

    On that list I'd probably have to say NC I guess since it's the closest one to being like WV.

    California doesn't compare. Well, SoCal anyway. Northern Cali *might*, but I haven't made it up there yet. I hate Cali. It never ****ing rains. It's the same all the fricken time.
