Do I have to say it?  South of the Border.  Hahahaha!  Well, that’s where I’m from (South Carolina).  But then there is Charleston (LOVE it!) on one end and the mountains on the other!  And SC has the best food around.  ๐Ÿ™‚

@HappilyEverAfter54: OHIO is pretty boring, and I beg to differ, the potholes here are hideous , I mean  it looks like  a freaking  comet blasted a hole in the road, the kind you have to swerve in the other lane to miss to not pop a tire.

WE do have Goldstar and Skyline chili ๐Ÿ˜€ yumm nothing better than shredded cheese, onions, beans, and chili on top of some spaghetti noodles. 5 way, yes please!

We also have King’s Island- a pretty rockin amusement park. If you have never ridden THE BEAST you should lol.

Other than that we have some hills and pretty dangerous roads filled with deer in the winter :/ Overall not a cool place to live, IMO.

@HappilyEverAfter54: I have been to Centralia a few years ago. The Silent Hill movie was based off of it. It’s a very creepy little place. I think the gov’t finally forced everyone to move out. I grew up in WV. I can’t think of anything there besides white water rafting, mountain climbing, and the most beautiful sites in the fall. I’m in PA now, but I will say that OH has much much worse roads. 

Kennywood is in Pittsburgh too! And THE BEAST at Kings Island is pretty awesome!

Whoopie pies, Steven King, Patrick Dempsey (you’re welcome ;-)! ), lobster, blueberries, and tons of awesome summer adventures.  Oh, and a really dumb governor who likes to make everyone and anyone angry.

Texas is awesome. I’ll focus mostly on the San Antonio-Austin area though because those are the places I’ve lived. Low cost of living, lots of theme parks (particularly 6Flags and Sea World), LOTS of wonderful Mexican Food, tons of great colleges, the Alamo, Riverwalk, the Spurs, Mavericks, Cowboys, and Stars (okay those are mostly Dallas but still awesome), Rodeo, tons of festivals and fairs, FIESTA! etc

Not so good-The current budget cuts particularly facing education ๐Ÿ™
