Reputations of States - Some fun maps

As a market researcher, I'll preface this by saying that it's a panel from one of the worst businesses in our industry and so it's not really generalizable, but nonetheless it's kind of fun.

I suspect that there's a bit of a problem in that people may vote for their own states, which probably should be taken out of the data. As such, I figure that bigger states are amplified. I suspect that it wouldn't change the conclusions, though.

Looked like Montana got a little love for the scenery portion.

I rather like the Flint hills of Kansas...probably the best scenery on the drive between DFW and KC

I suspect that a lot of states suffer because people haven't been there to see them. Montana's not a huge tourist draw. I wonder what percent of Americans have ever set foot in the state.

That's probably the way to improve this panel (aside from doing it as a real survey). You should ask people what states they've been to, and adjust the figures to account for visitation.

I bet 75 percent of Americans have been to California, and I bet 1 percent have been to North Dakota.

Any poll that has people voting that NY has hotter residents than Texas is immediately invalidated. NYers are troglodytes in comparison. NYers are freaking troglodytes compared to MISSOURI for ****s sake.

I mean western ks is horrible. But once you get to about Hays it gets better, if you get off i70. I grew up going to a family farm north of Russell and it was tons of woodlands, creeks, hills, and wildlife. I find that scenery much nicer than open dry desert of the southwest but thats personal opinion I guess. I love going back there every chance I get. I'll be there nov 9th to fold some pheasants. cant wait.

That's the thing with states. Two people can go to different parts of the same state and have fundamentally different impressions. Eastern Montana and Western Montana, for example, or Laguna Beach versus Bakersfield.

Heck, Colorado has plains in half the state that are far less visually interesting than Kansas, but then most people aren't visiting that part of the state.

If you go for that Italian look, NY has some hotties. It's not a place for blonde-watching, though.

You are right.

While providing pilot service and charters I have seen every state except Maine, Alaska, and Hawaii.

My favorites for views are in the Northwest. Unbelievably beautiful.

Arizona and Utah are pretty awesome from the air, too. East of the Rockies things are pretty meh in comparison. Nothing but the same trees, hills, and water.

Yeah, and with most of us here on CP who live in KS and MO, who have driven to the Rockies, we've all suffered that drive through the plain part of CO. I remember when we drove to Estes Park when I was a kid. We crossed into Colorado and for a long time I was saying to my mom "WHERE THE EFF ARE ALL THE MOUNTAINS?!"

The Front Range area is horrible. Just draw a line from it down to Roswell, NM and El Paso, Tx.

Nothing. If you are a prepper it would be perfect.

It's also a great place for chicks with lots of facial hair.

I have driven across Kansas and Nebraska many times and I can say this with confidence. Nebraska is the only state that I have driven across that looked better at night than it did in the daylight.

You're missing out. The view here from the sky is impressive, not so much up north but southeast is.
Plenty of openings for pilots up here, we lose a few each year. :-(

If we kicked Texas out, border patrol would get far more difficult.
