TOP TWENTY-FIVE STATES, RANKED

The states really start to drop off after twenty five
  1. 1.
    California
    The perfect state. Enormous and geographically diverse, unprecedented weather and beauty. LA plus SF as cities.
  2. 2.
    Texas
    Texas could easily be a country, and a damn fine one at that. Enormous, strong. Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio aren't flashy but that's three cities you've heard of in one state- real quantity. And that's not to mention Austin and Tex Mex
  3. 3.
    New York
    One unprecedented city plus a lot of farm land and surface area tacked on as a not unimportant freebie.
  4. 4.
    Colorado
    Gorgeous and legal weed.
  5. 5.
    Washington State
    Seattle and more.
  6. 6.
    Massachusetts
    I'd put it higher personally but I'm trying to be objective.
  7. 7.
    Tennessee
    Hasn't done anything too fucked up in a minute
  8. 8.
    Hawaii
    A one trick pony, but what a trick.
  9. 9.
    Illinois
    Chicago. Points deducted for weather.
  10. 10.
    Pennsylvania
    Philadelphia and Pittsburgh? Look, we're getting past the slam dunk states now.
  11. 11.
    Arizona
    A lot of beauty
  12. 12.
    Ohio
    We're about due for Ohio
  13. 13.
    Virginia
    Kind of cool
  14. 14.
    Georgia
    Atlanta?
  15. 15.
    Oregon
    Portland!
  16. 16.
    Montana
    Never been. Maybe should be higher.
  17. 17.
    Utah
    Seems nice, but in an unnerving way. Colorado with weird vibes imo.
  18. 18.
    North Carolina
    Dropped slots for being in the news lately
  19. 19.
    Wisconsin
    "Sure, Wisconsin." State motto
  20. 20.
    Nevada
    Arizona but with gambling.
  21. 21.
    Connecticut
    Sure
  22. 22.
    Vermont
    Eh. Two boring states,
  23. 23.
    Alaska
    Higher for some, much lower for others. Points added for variety.
  24. 24.
    Delaware
    Sure
  25. 25.
    Maryland
    Whatever. Two more boring states, but too humid compared to Vermont etc. You can swap each pair per preference.
