Re: What's your favorite U.S. state? Utah

High Desert - 1 of 22 (8).jpgI love to travel and have been to many great states that have a lot to offer but my favorite state is the one I live in, Utah. Salt Lake City has not only a diverse culture which is easy to find, many great resturants, meseums, beautiful views, and some fun sports with the Utah Jazz, Salt Lake Real, and the University of Utah. But, the real treat for visiting Utah is getting out of the metro area. Besides being home to Zions, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef, there are other National Parks and Monuments like Golden Spike, Grand Staircase, Bears Ears, and Natural Bridges, the oldest national park/monument in Utah. Then there are areas like Monument Valley that isn't even a national park but is "movie" beautiful. There's also hidden gems like Hell's Backbone Grill in Boulder, UT. There are very few people in Boulder but Hell's Backbone Grill is a world class resturant in a world class setting. Finally, there are the National Forests, the mountain ranges, and the deserts in between and you don't want to forget some of the outliner cities like Logan, St. George, or Vernal near Dinosaur National Park. While I love to visit other states, I love the "staycations" I can have any weekend because I live here.

Well I am partial and have to name more than one

I was born in Biloxi Ms lived in several areas of MS growing up & married also grew up in New Orleans, La and both my sons were born there even though lived in Ms 50 minutes away.... Love Ms for Elvis & snowballs & Buttercrunches from Paul's Pastry most all my family was there... graduated there so fond memories Love New Orleans for its Mardi Gras and Beignets and for Crawfish and Creole Cuisine & Saints NFL Team.... also Mississippi beaches are beautiful and wide & now have casinos on barges 

I moved to NC in 1986 I truly love this state for it has it all Beautiful Beaches in many great areas... my favorite being Oak Island and Southport and Nags Head plus have beautiful mountains and for most part have touches of every season which in deep south just mostly winter and hot summers NC has gorgeous Fall time of year which I love that beauty 

I've lived in more states and visited most of them have to say my favorite is Maui,Hawaii if could've had family there I would've never left that vacation ... was beautiful and tropical & loved  the black sandy beaches but also had things used to from states Walmart Coca-cola which other travel islands don't have....

Well that's my 4 favorites 

Go visit them all have lots to offer in their own special ways

Thanks for topic

Maryland, because it's America in miniature! It has a beautiful coast on the Atlantic , fertile farmland on the Eastern Shore and central Maryland, gorgeous bays and rivers, especially the Chesapeake, and breathtaking mountains in Western Maryland . And Ocean City on a hot Summer day, and walking the famous boardwalk at night and feasting on Thrasher's french fries - no,  it doesn't get much better than this! Not to mention the best seafood in the world, including my favorite -  steamed blue crabs. History buffs have a field day at Antietam National Battlefield, Fort Frederick National Monument, The C&O canal historic area, Annapolis, Ft. McHenry,  and countless colonial homes, mills, etc scattered throughout the state. Then there's the Baltimore Orioles and the Ravens for big time sports fans. And the beautiful campus of my Alma Matter, Towson University in is cool to see. University of Maryland is ok, too. Taxes and cost of living are a little high, but hey, no state is perfect!

New Hampshire.  No sales or income tax.  Rated #2 state in nation by US News & World Report.   Spring, Summer and Fall are lovely.  Go to Florida, my second favorite state, for five + months or so in the late fall, early spring, and winter (no income tax).

Washington State. Combination of urban and outdoor scenery.
