    I love NSW!

    We have the best of both worlds, and relatively close to each other too. We've got Sydney (which actually SHOULD be the capital, everybody knows that) with big beautiful old buildings and city life and the CBD for people who like that, with a gorgeous harbour, ferries and Luna Park (theme park.) Only an hour or two away you can drive out to semi-rural areas, with lush green grass, horses, and small farmy things, and the Blue Mountains for beautiful bush scenery, where it snows sometimes on the peaks in winter :). Further inland, there is true farming country, with massive farms (where my mum grew up :). Going further in still, you hit desert.

    We have amazing coastlines and fantastic beaches, very close to suburban areas. Speaking of suburban areas, the suburbs of Sydney are absolutely awesome as well - green and for the most part spacious, as long as the government stops building ugly modern apartments everywhere :( and we have fantastic schools too. Not to mention the wonderful and very rare rainforests found in very few places elsewhere. All within a few hours of each other!

    Wonderful weather with beautiful mild winters, only gets hot in summer, and glorious autumns with the perfect temperature and lots of the trees turning magnificent shades of red, purple and gold, while gum trees stay green. We have no natural disasters except for bushfires (generally in summer.)

    We also have a rich (for Australia, anyways, which doesn't say much) history, we were one of the first places to be settled and have both Sydney Harbour and Botany Bay, key places in the history of Australia.

    I could go on, but I won't. I love Australia, especially NSW :)

    ETA that sounds like an ad.

    ETAA Your Texas might be big, but I GUARANTEE we are bigger :)

    Because Virginia wins, hands down. Wouldn't live anywhere else. It's funny because people my age hate it.

    Well we have wizard of oz museums.... Does that count? Haha. But really, I love where I live and I couldn't be happier. The only downfall is the tornadoes, but us kansens aren't the type people who take shelter when a storm is heading our way, instead we so the exact opposite and head out to our front porch to see if we can spot the tornado. There are a lot of things to do in kansas if you have the time to travel there.

    We have Chicago. That's about it.

    Oh, the CORNFIELDS! How could I forget? Illinois has some of the most magnificent corn and bean fields in the country! Come and enjoy the flat, featureless scenery and experience our vast, colorful variety of cattle and sheep, smack-dab in the heart of Tornado Alley. Don't wait, book your next vacation with us in Illinois!

    I wouldn't live anywhere else! Texas is an amazing place and has he highest nativity(people born in Texas stay in Texas) for a reason! Great medical care, the biggest rodeo in the world, the beach, the people. I swear, you never meet a stranger around here. Sure, the humidity where I am is atrocious on top of triple digit heat in the summer, but who doesn't like a good sauna?

    You guys feed the world!

    Coming from a place where the blades of grass come up in small bunches and about 8" apart, I think Illinois is quite pretty. And you have lakes that get warm enough to swim in, and rivers.

    You would laugh at our corn. We laugh at our corn. It's quite stunted and tastes nothing like corn from the Midwest.

    I haven't spent much time in your state, just bits over the years, but there are some really beautiful things about it, IMO. Illinois, Indiana and Ohio don't get enough credit.

    I'm a Mainah!

    We have three seasons! Winter, mud season, road work, then its back to winter! (local joke, haha)

    But seriously, we have this weather:


    And this weather within a few months of each other, its always interesting!


    We have lots of trees!
    We say 'wicked'
    We are supposed to be a 'touristy' state but it never seemed like it to me
    Mud season! () -

    The ocean!

    The people are pretty nice


    The last thing, I think that the people here are really into 'being who you really are', in a way. There are so many artists and such who live here. And everyone really seems to care about keeping the city clean and nice.

    I love Maine!
