There's been a little North VS South
Of course, being the "uppity Yankee woman" I am, I also threw in a few places that made me whistful for home!
I have traveled as far north as Prince Edward Island, CAN and as far south (and west for that matter) ast the Tex/Mex border (never crossed...my spidey senses were tinglin' that nite) Not by any means the traveler that some here are, but I do have this to add about the cultural differences chatted about in threads like Caffeine Hogs
And I did not wanna hijack that thread.
So here's my votes for State (and some city/out of state) Superlatives
Best Lobster---PEI Canada during their lobster mania in June...Lobsters are DEAD cheap (but only if they know you're not a 'tourist'
Best seafood all around: ME/MA/RI
Best restaurants all around: RI and MA...many ecclectic tastes to choose from...I happen to work in a pretty damn good one that my brother owns. So if ya want me to fix you a sammich...come to MA!
Friendliest people: Texas (and I am not saying that so SP1grrl will refrain from kicking my ass) It's damned true
Second friendliest: Upstate NY (I'm talking in the BOONIES, people)
Best BBQ and hush puppies: North Carolina (easily the greenest state too)
Best Sunsets: South Carolina
Most fun city to party in: Philly (Not too shabby on the history there either)
Second most fun (DC---specifically, Georgetown...again the history)
Third most fun: San Antonio (Paseo del Rio andAustin HWY)
Fourth: Boston....alright alright...I like to party...
State I hate to drive thru: CT...BORING
Second I hate to drive thru: NY...GW Bridge is evil in steel form
Third: MD---Roadsigns LIE in MD!!!!
Third: RI ( I am sorry...but traffic in a state the size of my left eyeball is simply unacceptable)
Best Beaches: RI and Saint Thomas, Virgin Islands
Worst: Corpus Christi (oil splooge anyone?
Second Worst: Jersey...even the seagulls have migrated to RI beaches
Anyone else like to vote for their faves/least faves?
