Mardi Gras
All the different types of festivals.
Some of the friendliest people in the world.
Great sports teams.
Great campgrounds.
Outdoor activities.
Many different cultures, meaning the people are different south of Hwy 90, south of I-10 and north of I-10.
Did I mention the FOOD.
Truly is a great state to live in.

The bad is our roads and the humidity, but we keep it that way on purpose. If we fixed it everyone would live here.
Louisiana is so diverse. A festival somewhere every weekend. Many beautiful state parks. Sportsman paradise and yes the food. From South Louisiana (Lafayette)

Fair enough I'll concede on those. We do love camping in SD. DW went to college there so we do visit often, its only a 90 minute drive for us

What's great about New Jersey?

You have to pay to leave! Our tolls are great!

Most everyone associates NJ with the shore, but we have much more! Plenty of nice State parks, TONS of history - colonial forts and battlefields, Water Gap, craft breweries, rich heritage/history in glass-making, a terrain that would surprise you if you go from the NW corner to the SE tip, still quite a few orchards and farms for produce, many amusement parks, historic towns, D&R Canal, lighthouses, the USS New Jersey, aquarium, and even wineries! The southern half of the State is very different from the north in terms of people and culture, just as the north is then split by the effect of the greater NYC metro vs the highlands.

Pennsylvania is home to the best "Old Time" family amusement parks in America.
In western PA, We claim the 3rd oldest park, Idlewild Park, that opened in 1878 and was voted the best kids amusement park in America.
Western PA also has Kennywood Park that opened in 1898, so it too is an oldie but goodie.
There is Knoebels Family Park in eastern PA that opened in 1926. This is also a great park for kids... and the best amusement park food anywhere.

The New River & the Trail (Railroad Bed) that covers several counties as a State Park.

History History & more History.

Part of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Shennanadoah National Park, Booker T Washingtons Birthplace / National Park.....

On west of Oaklevel, you have more wonderful, beautiful state parks (Natural Tunnel SP, Hungry Mother SP, Breaks Interstate Park and Grayson Highlands SP) which feature some magnificent scenery, beautiful mountains, great canyons, tunnels, grazing horses and other marvels.

The Creeper Trail, a biking trail, runs from White Top Mountain down into Damascus along an old railroad bed and is wonderful in almost any season (unless there is snow on the ground).

Music, music and more music. You have the Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Bristol. You have the Crooked Road with music, mostly bluegrass, along the route for miles and miles. Many local festivals that offer handmade crafts, antiques, music,

Mountains, valleys, caverns, greenery and miles and miles of the best motorcycle riding, country road driving areas than there are anywhere.

Our state has so much to offer, from ocean to mountains, cities to the middle of nowhere, rivers, lakes, creeks, great hiking trails, cities, history, NASA, business.

Hopefully they will close it to keep you inside the state borders.
