The two states not part of the lower 48.

Hawaii. Easily one of the top 5 states in the country, and certainly the most pleasant. Sometimes I dream of retiring in Honolulu. Such a magical place!

Constant traffic jams, crazy expensive, tourists everywhere? Magical indeed.

(I love Hawaii but the idea that Honolulu is this magical place is divorced from reality)

Absolutely blown away that Alaska is even running close in this poll. Unless one is an absolute libertard, I'm really at a loss. Hawaii's natural Beauty and scenery, including mountains, easily Rivals Alaska's. And the weather is a hell of a lot better as it tends to be cool by the sea breezes, as opposed to Alaska just being, well, Alaska.

I'd still choose Alaska, but Hawaii is one of my favorite non-cold states (along with California).

I'm a city person. I wouldn't want to live out past Aiea and commute, but a nice condo in Waikiki where I could walk everywhere sounds like a dream. Besides, there are a ton of cool neighborhoods without much driving, like Maikiki, Kapahulu, and Kahala which would all be nice. Kailua would also be cool. Maui is lame, and Kauai and the Big Island are fun to visit, but way too remote to live in.

Both seem like nice states tbh, but I voted Alaska mainly because the quality and life and cost of living seem to be a lot better there than in Hawaii.

While I voted for Alaska here because it is unbeaten when it comes to its natural wonders, I do agree with this. Look no further than the glorification of Minnesota as much better than it actually is.

Alaska is less white than the US as a whole, and by some measures Anchorage is the most diverse city in the US. I'm always surprised that people think of Alaska as being so white.

Anyway, Alaska wins easily for me due to the cold and snow, the sheer vastness, the frontier spirit, and the amazing natural landscapes.

In comparison with Hawaii, by far the most diverse (as in truly diverse, not just "not white") and least white state, Alaska is clearly very white.

Maui is lame, and Kauai and the Big Island are fun to visit, but way too remote to live in.


But that's the problem with Honolulu. It feels like most any big US city in a tropical climate. From my visit there last year, I felt I could have been in San Diego or South FL. Don't get me wrong, it was a great experience, but I didn't get the feeling of being in a state with a significant other culture. I didn't get to Kailua on Oahu so I can't comment on that.

I visited 4 other HI islands that same trip last year, all of which were more culturally authentic than Oahu. I'm surprised you found Maui lame. I enjoyed it completely and it had areas that were far less touristy than Kaanapali such as Wailuku and Kihei. Plus the commuter terminal at Kahului Airport made connections to the other islands (or the Mainland) a breeze with far less hassle than at Inouye International in Honolulu.

The only island I found to be really remote was Molokai'i. The Big Island was indeed big so it took a long time to get from one side to the other, but Hilo was a nice town and more interesting than Kona. Kauai was the most scenic of the islands for my money and it was pretty easy to go between Lihue and Honolulu if one wanted something in the big city.
