Thus far, Oregon, hands down. I've decided I will grow old here. :)

Favorite state to live in would be Oregon. I am a traveler though and would love to visit Alaska again along with many other states. About the only other state to live in is my current state of Montana it's really growing on me and tied very closely with Oregon at the moment, there's so much to do for an outdoorsy person like me.

My favorite state is Oregon...I'm a native Oregon...loved here my whole life...I love the diversity of climate and terrain. If I chose another state...it might be Montana or Wyoming...love the feeling of space...and nothing can beat our beautiful mountains.

I've traveled across the country a couple times, but I think my favorite state to live in is Oregon. It reminds me much of the UK in weather patterns, and I'm obsessed with the UK. I think the second place I'd chose would be Missouri because I spent a year of my young childhood on the family farm. It was one of the best years of my short life back then.

I'm a born and raised Oregonian and love living here. I lived in Italy for 2 years and loved it there also. I seem to always fall in love with the place I am visiting.

Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. Phil 3:19

Born here, mostly raised here, married here, educated here, lived and worked all over U.S., but Oregon's always been and still is my favorite.

I'm an Oregonian through and through! I've visited lots of other places, and they're nice to visit but there's nothing like coming home.

Every place I have visited and loved has had mountains, waterfalls, rivers and green trees. Hmmm...sound familiar.

On a side note, I always thought of Hawaii as a tourist trap till I visited it. I love Hawaii too now, but my heart will always be in NW Oregon.

By far, Oregon is the most beautiful. I was born and lived in California until just last year. I have been to north Carolina, nevada, Arizona but i have to say California is my favorite. Once a California Girl always a California girl.

Born in Kansas raised in California Oregonian by choice. I loved So. Cal as a child in the 50's and 60's but now too many people, gangs, pollution, lack of natural resources and corruption - sigh the only thing I like now are myfamily and Disneyland.

I've only been to oregon, washington, california, and nevada, with brief stops in michigan and minnesota. They all have their good and bad points, but to me Oregon is simply the best!

I lived in Seattle for 10 years, then moved to Spokane before ending up here in Portland Oregon. I love this town, the people, nature all around, the many cultural flavors this place has to offer, and all this in a manageable size. As a born European and bicycle lover, I really feel I finally found home.

Well, I may be a little biased, but Oregon is my favorite. Second place would be Arizona closely followed by California.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!
