How 'bout them states

edited November 2010 in Social Entropy++
So I want to do a roadtrip with some of my friends across the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and I was wondering which states are the prettiest / most entertaining / have the less rednecks?

We're going to California for sure, and we might go to Florida (but only because ive got a house there)
Doing a roadtrip across Canada is also an option, but beside BC i dont know if theres a lot to visit.

And what about you guys? Do you have some trip projects? Is there a particular country you'd like to visit? Have you been to interesting places in your life?

also, fuck Alaska, its just a glorified Nunavut

    Whatever you do, don't go to Oregon or Washington. They're awful and the people are despicable.

    Kansas fits none of those categories, so give that one a miss.

    unfortunately, some of the prettiest places to drive through have the most rednecks.

    Indiana has excellent fall foliage and some kickass covered bridges.

    Canada along the Trans Canada Highway is beautiful. It's also meandering and long. Just like my dick.

    I definitely recommend going through Yellowstone Park if you can. It's honestly some of the prettiest, most breath-taking scenery in the country.

    Been through all of the West. Most of it is beautiful, if you ignore most of the Sonoran and Mojave deserts, and Imperial County in California.

    I would suggest visiting Maine, except it look nice in the summer and early fall. Also, everywhere you go will be nice looking and filled with rednecks (Baxter National Park) or nice looking and horribly commercialized and overpriced (the seacoast).

    Id avoid kansas and idaho and iowa. Kansas city ans st.louis are tops. Indiana has the dunes park, pretty fall colors, and if you visit chicago there's tons to do and its the best city.

    Avoid Texas? Are you a silly goose or something? Drive through the pan handle and night and actually see the milky way, go through the hill country and visit Austin, and then head up north to pass through Dallas and the piney woods of East Texas.

    Texas is beautiful and the people are super awesome and friendly.

    Now Alabama, that is a place to be avoided.

    [edit] I'll also second Indiana. Take the southern part of the state and visit Bloomington for the best food/scenery in the land and see Brown county in all it's amazing fall splendor.

    What I hear from Texas is that its a racists overweight state with a lot of intolerant people.

    Its also what I learn in college

    this is indeed the popular opinion of it, and the fine people of Dallas, Ft. Worth and Alamosa don't do much to disprove it

    I have met some wonderful people in Austin and Lubbock, though, and it's a fun drive. Especially especially coming from the east -- after the claustrophobia of the east coast out to Tennessee, it's great to hit the panhandle and just fucking floor it

    Bullshit. Be friendly and respectful and the people will be the same if more back to you.
