    They must’ve been from California. Naked vagrants.

    Unless you’re looking for $5 blackjack or are into people watching, it’s never a good idea. Place is a zoo.

    I've only been through Detroit so I wouldn't know. But hail and ticket's pics of Michigan lakes and beaches have seriously vaulted the place into probably the top 10 of places in the country I'd like to vacation to someday. Not sure if I ever will make it up there but it's on the radar.

    It does seem odd to have Arizona out of the top 10 though. Nevada at #36 is criminal but I have a thing for the desert and desert mountains.

    Coastal Oregon is beautiful, I always enjoy making the trek up Portland anytime I visit friends.

    Kentucky rightfully in the top 20. A lot of people would overlook it due to population or location, but there are so many beautiful places in this state.

    "Culturally this state can never decide whether it's part of the Midwest, the South, or Appalachia. Geographically it doesn't care, because it rocks the highlights of all those regions"

    Definitely. I've been to both Seaside and Tillamook (great cheese!) and the surrounding beach areas. It's borderline suicide to expose your skin to the water for this Texas boy but the scenery is 2nd to none.

    I've only driven through. Worked in Youngstown, OH for a few months back in 2012 and then drove home. Didn't get to really see much of the state but I did pass the Mammoth Caves. I should have stopped to check them out. That's right up my alley of cool things to do for an afternoon.

    My only complaint is its too big to see everything in one trip. California is like 5 different states lumped into one. What you see in southwest Cali is almost polar opposite what you see northeast

    I don't think you could even see and experience most of California in 5 vacations.

    True. I prefer Northern California, San Francisco, north bay, wine country (Napa, Sonoma) the Sierras, etc. Southern California is decent but central and Northern California, especially Santa Cruz and Big Sur are pretty amazing. It’s def doable to see both on a 10-14 day trip.

    Longest cave system in the world, which is nuts to think about. It really is a pretty place to live. Like the article said, geographically, you get a lot of different regions mixed together. Pretty cool.

    1) LA (including Santa Barbara)
    2) Bay Area (including Pebble/Carmel)
    3) Lake Tahoe and area
    4) Yosemite and Mammoth Lakes
    5) Redwoods/Far Northern California

    That's like a month right there. Lol.

    No doubt. It would be an excursion. I’ve lived in California for over a decade and haven’t seen a lot of the state.

    Michigan has a lot to offer, with most of it being related to water. Its flatter than the majority of states, no real "mountains" besides up in the UP. So summertime it is awesome, but you better like snowmobiling and ice fishing in the winter.

    Live in New Jersey now, just across from midtown Manhattan. It's pretty solid - great waterfront parks and boardwalks, solid development, community feel, good schools. But stereotypes abound. My town is run by essentially the mob, but without the violence. Just the corruption and "who do you know" BS. So I'm friendly to people who truly are a$$holes just so I don't have issues with things like permits and street parking for guests.

    I lived in Las Vegas for about a decade. It's much, much better than the crappy desert parts of SoCal (the I-15 corridor and nearby, looking at you, Apple Valley!). But it's also much, much worse than the good parts of California (depending on your personal preferences, San Diego, OC, LA, Bay area, Napa region). I used to sometimes miss living in Las Vegas - access to good hiking, Hoover Dam, great entertainment and dining - but the heat and driving (so much driving) really wear on you. If the housing market hadn't crashed, it would have been nice to see if LV could have developed a good downtown feel with neighborhoods within walking distance of shopping/dining/office space.

    Not surprised. Fremont is for older tourists, poor people, and protesters (getting screamed at by "Christians" on Fremont used to be a right of passage in my Air Force unit). I'd much rather go to a good local casino (Summerlin, Henderson) than Fremont if you're looking to get off the Strip. Or just stay on the Strip.

    Haha, never go to SF or LA then, that's just a very small taste of what you'll get.

    I am assuming you were stationed at Nellis? I have a lot of friends that were/are Thunderbirds. I was an F-16 crew chief about 15 years ago. We did a 2-week TDY to Red Flag in August when it was at least 150 degrees on the tarmack. Funny being that it's a "dry heat" because I was sweating my ass off running around at EOR. It was cool though, we stayed at Palace Station and I won a good amount of money over those two weeks.

    After I first moved to Reno, the wife and I did a trip to the coast. Took about 5 hours, but went from the Sierras to the central valley to wine country to the redwoods to the coast. We hit Pacific Highway 1 just south of Fort Bragg and that was about as beautiful of a coast as I have seen.

    Florida. North Florida, that is. That’s a totally separate state from the trash further south.
