Culturally speaking: What is your favorite state in the US and why?

My favorite state is New York. Lots of diversity in NYC, lots outside of it, is on the US-Canada border so you can drive to another country. Amazing winters, lots of diversity and lots to do, great education system, and New Yorkers are not that bad.

Bonus question: What is one state you would NOT want to live in?
