...which state is the best to live in? How about a top three list with your home state (people are biased) listed at the end.
1) California: I'm talking the middle to the north. I'm not a big fan of SoCal, especially the Santa Barbara to San Diego portion. However, all things considered, I really love San Francisco and north.
2) Vermont: Gorgeous nature, and I love the countenance of New Englanders. High education levels up there, too.
3) Oregon/Washington State: I love the Pacific Northwest. Decent cities, good standard of living, gorgeous scenery.
(As you can see from my choices, I have very specific tastes in weather: Not too warm, some seasons, don't mind a little rain.)
I'm from Minnesota, which is obviously the best of them all
I would've included Alaska and Hawai'i, but their location played a large part.
What say you?
