Best Places in the US to live, Part 2

(Part 1 link, is case you missed it)



Ohio: Southern Ohio is pretty nice, Northeastern Ohio is nothing special, Western Ohio is flat and normal.

Indiana: Surprisingly hilly and interesting compared to what you might expect. Simple but good people.

Illinois: Actually this one is surprising. Aside from the depression of the huge Chicago area, Illinois is quite wonderful. The landscapes are beautiful and the woods are nice, when you can find them. Plus gas is $2.20 in 2014 and that sure doesn’t suck! The people seem pretty moderate.

Wisconsin: A little bit too close to freezing Manitoba and Minnesota, but if wilderness is your thing, you can find it anywhere in the area. The people are very friendly, less formally polite than Tennesseans but more genuinely friendly.

Minnesota: Colder and more remote than Iowa, with a hardy tough atmosphere. It doesn’t feel particularly attractive stay in.


Montana: Really rugged, free, and rustic. It’s a pretty awesome place although it gets cold and snowy and the people don’t always say “hi” and all that.

Wyoming: Similar to Montana from what I’ve seen.

Central West:

South Dakota: One of the best states in its general area. There is still a lot of genuine, unadulterated Western culture here and the climate and nature is amazing. Also, the people are nice and friendly.


Haven’t been there. I’ve heard New Mexico is awesome, Arizona is cool but too hot, and Texas is an outdoorsman’s paradise but very conservative.


Ontario: Not a fan of Toronto area… eww. Rural Ontario is good aside from the bugs. It has a mysterious, wilderness feeling to it and is pretty fascinating. It’s essentially water, pine trees, snow, and country folk. (in the summer maybe just that minus the snow and plus bugs)

Manitoba: Slightly Western version of Ontario. There are some alright areas in it but overall it seems a bit cold and sad. If you’re looking to film a cold and sad movie, this is a great place.

Saskatchewan: A little cooler than Manitoba. Actually slightly warmer but just more prairie-like. Lots of farming and few people. It would suit loner types very well, although like all the provinces it gets colder in the north and by the time you get there the towns only consist of 300 people. Look up Uranium City.

Alberta: This one, I think, is the most interesting and homey province in Canada, although it gets some competition from SK, BC, and MB. There is a great variety here, from tundra to parkland to mix prairie to prairie to dry prairie to desert to mountains. The cities are alright and the rural culture is still there once you get an hour away from the cities.

BC: I don’t like mountains, although some people love them. The coast is pretty awesome feeling and the islands are nice as well. Vancouver is expensive to live in but very warm.

North: Northern Canada has a mixture of young workers, natives, fugitives, and adventurers. Not a run-of-the-mill place by any means. Try your luck if you want to go there; a lot of towns don’t even have roads. Even Uranium City, SK doesn’t have a road leading up to it, and that’s not even in one of the Northwest Territories!
