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.

I-70 from KC to Colorado definitely isn't too exciting. Unless you like long, flat stretches of nothing.

As someone who has made that drive no fewer than 30 times in the past decade (and will be doing so this weekend), I can confirm that that drive is absolutely soul devouring.

Colorado is pretty much nothing as well...until you hit the Rockies (W of Denver).

That drive is just bleak. Utah, with a couple of exceptional areas in the mountains, is just as bad.

I haven't spent much time in the Salt Lake area, but southern Utah is spectacular. I think Utah is one of the most scenic states in the U.S. It's not green, so some people may not like it, but I think it's fantastic.

Heh, I remember crossing the Great Salt Flats one time when I was a kid. It was pretty cool to see when you first got there, but within 30 minutes you wanted to put a bullet into your brain. There isn't even a bend in the highway for at least 100 miles. Oh, and the speed limit was 55 back then so it took for ****ing ever to cross it.

I can't comment on Texas, but from the four(small number I know) times I have been to Missouri they don't come close to NYers. Although part of my mental image is including the entire tri-state area I guess. I was not impressed at all in the times I have been to KC. Not much of a sample size I guess.

Exactly. And there's your problem. The majority of people are going to base their experience on highway scenery. It's hard to compete with other states where you can drive through mountains, interesting rock formations and forests, diverse farmscapes, etc....

The first half of colorado to the front range is a whole lot more barren.

Yeah, the women down here (Texas) are smoking. Especially up in Austin and Dallas.

Maybe it was Texas people voting they wanted to be kicked out of America. Texas is one of the best states in the entire USA.
