Not particularly many surprises, once you factor in the Northeast Corridor is the most densely populated part of the country, California is the most populous state, Nevada has Las Vegas, Florida has Disney World, and Arizona has... cacti.

I'm totally not downplaying the importance of cacti, but there's people's summer homes, one side of the grand canyon, proximity to large populations in California and Mexico, ...

Implication of "one side" is "only one side". Pretty basic stuff.

Ayeee you lot. I think smartguy knows that 95% of visitors just go to the south side of the Grand Canyon. The north, as beautiful as it is, gets far fewer visitors and it takes more effort to get to. But yes, the north side is in Arizona as well.

Level 75
Sep 16, 2021
But if you go to the south side of the Grand Canyon then you'd be looking mostly at the north side, so surely that is the side that people go to see.

But I mean, why would you specify "one side of the Grand Canyon" in a list of things in Arizona, unless you want to imply that only one side is there?

What an unexpected argument!

- I bet Arizona is high up on US Jetpunk users' most visited states, but from around the world I'm not too surprised that people mostly stick to the coastal and big-city states.

@SpencerGT As someone who lives/lived in Phoenix for most of their life, people truly don't understand the benefits of living in a dry climate. The largest benefit would be unwavering superiority to people such as yourself, who deem a hot climate to be "Unnecessary". It's also a great location to find spring training games, and acts as a great source of physical exercise.

Besides beautiful cacti Arizona has the Grand Canyon. As a European I can tell you there are many offers for Western roundtrips because if you do take the time to fly all the way to the West you probably take a road trip. Or visit while staying in Vegas - like my parents did.

^ Yeah, this is true. Many Europeans certainly, and I'm guessing Asians too go through several western states, hence the inclusion of Arizona, Nevada, and California. I'm guessing Utah must be close as well?

Texas is underrated as a tourist destination. I had a great time there. Austin in particular is a great city to explore, and I enjoyed San Antonio too - the Alamo was really interesting to visit. And although a lot of the state is just flat dusty plain, there are some really beautiful parts too - Texas Hill Country and Big Bend for instance.

Also there are some really quirky out-of-the-way places that are just fascinating. If you're ever in North East Texas check out the town of Uncertain on Caddo Lake. Still one of the most memorable places I've ever been.

But it's a big place. So yeah in between the interesting spots there really is a whole lot of nothing!

Exactly. I've been to America a few times, been to all the eastern coast states, done Highway 1, been to Hawaii. Never been to Texas. Not much there and not near anything I'd want to go to. Too big to travel through.

Level 71
Jul 29, 2019
Pennsylvanian here--nice to see my state so high on here. Of these states, the only ones I haven't been to are Nevada and Arizona. Kinda surprised that Ohio wasn't here given they have a large population and are within driving distance of the northeastern corridor, but to be fair Ohio isn't the most interesting state (no offense to any Ohioans that read this)
+2
Level 67
Jul 29, 2019
I grew up in the suburbs of New York, and I can't think of a single person I know who ever carved out time for a trip to see Ohio. There are some nice things there, but why would you drive the extra six hours to Ohio when you can drive to Philly, Boston, DC, or even Pittsburgh instead? And once you're talking about getting a plane, may as well go to Denver or Florida or California. Other than the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and maybe a Buckeyes football game, there is no Ohio experience I can think of that isn't basically replicable somewhere else. I've been to the state several times by now, and the Hall of Fame is all that really stands out to me. Columbus is a very cool city, but there's nothing about it that demands a long-distance visit.
+1
Level 71
Jul 29, 2019
Yeah, I think I'm a bit different as I live in Central Pennsylvania, about 4 hours from Cleveland. There are some nice things to see in Cleveland at the lakefront but nothing incredible. I've gone east to New York and Philly and Washington so many more times than west to Cleveland. I've also been to Columbus, which is okay I guess but not special, and Cincinnati, which is one of the least favorite cities I've been to.

Cedar Point is one Ohio experience that isn't replicable somewhere else - at least of the same quality. I think Ohio gets unfairly dumped on, but it gave us the, "Things to do in Ohio: Leave" meme, which is good for a laugh.

Tourists don't go there. I'm from Australia. I have been to all the states on this because there is either something there to see, or it's easy to drive through it to see something else. Nothing in Texas worth going for.

Yup! First, while it's small it's very densely populated, making it the 11th most populous state in the country. Second, it's along a major thoroughfare on the east coast. You want to go to New York City or New England from just about anywhere south or west? You're probably gonna go through New Jersey. Going to Philly or DC from New York City or New England? Through New Jersey.

I've been to 7 of these:

New York: My home state. I was born here. I have been to many parts of the state; Montauk, NYC (All 5 buroughs), Rochester, Niagara Falls, Buffalo, Indian Lake, Lake Placid, Lake George, West Chester, South and North Shores of Long Island, etc.

New Jersey: Ive been here many times. Ive seen MetLife Stadium, Cape May, Trenton, etc.

Florida: Ive been to Disney, but I would like to see more, like the Keys and Miami.

California: I stopped in Needles on my way to Las Vegas from Phoenix. Of course I would love to see more of the state; LA, San Francisco, Yosemite, Disneyland, San Diego, etc.

Arizona: Arizona is such a beautiful state. Ive been to Page, Navajo Nation, Four Corners, Phoenix, Sedona, Grand Canyon, etc.

Nevada: I love Las Vegas, such a vibrant city. I saw Paris Las Vegas, the Venetian, a Bellagio fountain show, and walked the strip. I would love to come back to see more of the city.

Pennsylvania: Ive been to Hershey Park, Aquatopia, Lancaster, etc.
