10. South Dakota
“South Dakota, really?” Yes, REALLY. What seems like one big wheat field at first glance is actually one of the coolest states there is: Sturgis, Deadwood, the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, Badlands National Park, and the greatest movie of all time, Dances With Wolves, was filmed there. It might be the most overlooked state there is.
If it weren’t for the Mormons running everything here, this place might rank higher. But geographically, this state ranks up there with the best of em.
Honestly, Oregon isn’t my cup of tea but I can respect it for what it is. It’s far and away better than Washington, and Portland can beat Seattle’s buttcheeks blood red in being a real ass city.
6/7. New Hampshire/Vermont
Let’s just be clear, there’s no difference between Vermont and New Hampshire. Maybe there’s a huge rivalry between the residents of these two states, but no one outside of that gives a fuck. That being said, if I could live anywhere, I’d like to live here. It’s peaceful, quiet, beautiful, and people don’t seem to be ignorant. That’s a rare combination.
Sedona, Lake Havasu, Grand Canyon, Tombstone, etc, etc. Phoenix and Tucson are moving on up towards being real ass cities. At number 5, Arizona can’t get much higher (unless it legalizes pot)
Texas isn’t just a state on a map. It’s also a state of mind. It’s a place for people who like to drive like a goddamn maniac, curse Jerry Jones, and open carry for no other reason but to feel one step closer to death. You either get it or you don’t. And unfortunately, I get it.
Suck it losers. You can laugh at California’s problems all you want. Gas can be $50 a gallon with wildfires raging every 20 feet and this state would STILL rank number 3. Because here’s the thing that Americans that live in the other 49 states don’t understand: Californians don’t think about you. They know they live in one of the the coolest states…and one of the greatest places anywhere in the world…and you don’t. Boo hoo.
I got REALLY high at a McDonalds in Denver and forgot where I was at. I tried the same thing at a Starbucks in San Diego and it just wasn’t the same. In short, Colorado is the best state to get high in.
No matter where you’re at in the United States, or in the world for that matter, we can all agree: we’d rather be in Hawaii right now.

South Dakota, Utah and Arizona are all amazing from a geographical standpoint, but unfortunately filled with too many crazy conservatives who would make it all but impossible for me to live there. I’m glad you ranked my home state of California high. You’re correct in assessing that, despite its myriad problems, it’s still a pretty great place to live. I hate Texas.

California is great and if you can afford to live there, why wouldn’t you? It’s that simple. In defense of Texas, I feel like politics there run the entire gamut. Nationally, it’s still a red state, but that might be changing in the next few election cycles
