Which U.S. states are the friendliest?

By friendly, this entails acts of simple courtesy like polite service in a store or restaurant, greetings on the street, or just general warmth of people.

I have no idea. I would think it would vary by city more than by state. I remember hearing about a group of motorcyclists that travelled all over the country and they determined the friendliest city was Monarch, Colorado. I've never been there.

generally people in different cities have different personalities. THey have different aditudes and different ways of manifesting their friendlieness. The people in one city might smile at you more than any other but then people in another city might be more likely to hold the door open for you or say "have a nice day". They all have their own way of expressing their friendliness, youd just have to give them a chance.

I would hazard a guess and say New England.

Is New England a state or a place within a state?

I find Southern and Western states have the friendliest people. However, who you are will influence how others treat you. In the South, it helps to be a white person who maintains the status quo (the only real exeption is Atlanta). In the West, it helps to be laid back but direct. These are broad generalizations, but that's the nature of the question. All states have friendly people. Northerers tend to be a little abrasive, particularly New Yorkers. Mid-westerners tend to be reserved but courteous.

I don't know; I'm not sure this is even a relevant question, because I'm not sure there are friendlier and less-friendly states. People always said Massachusetts wasn't friendly, and I found the oppposite to be true, especially in the town where I lived. I would also find it creepy if strangers randomly said hello to me while I was walking down the street.

I've met lots of Americans, and I tend to find them all to be quite friendly, enthusiastic and reasonably well behaved under most circumstances. The small town folks seem to be particularly cute with all their starry-eyed wonder at the world. They can be a bit brash if you get them too liquored up, so I would keep an eye on that.

When I go to the States, I usually travel for business and I don't get much time to spend getting to know the locals and local culture. My exposure is, in my opinion, too superficial to make a super-informed judgement. Having said this, San Francisco struck me as a particularily warm and inviting, in large part because of the people. So on that, I say Californians.

I think big cities in the West or East are most friendly. Not that I am a traveler, but am relying on what I have heard and read. Like, for instance, I have long heard that generally small towns distrust strangers, or if you are not born in a certain area, you can never really "belong" and be fully accepted by the natives. One can't say "ALL" people in a certain US state behave a certain way, of course, but I'd say mainly the biggest cities on the E and W coasts, and likely mainly big California cities, the most warmth and "live and let live" attitudes that would make people feel comfortable.

You might not recognize Kremmling as you pass through here to get , to Steamboat Springs for we have a brand new grocery store on the Steamboat side of Kremmling just off of highway 40 KREMMLING MERCANTILE it is called and it is big! , and if you go to Granby we have a brand new City Market that is huge!. This town has grown a bit in size over the years, and Summit County south of here is the fastest grown.

Steamboat Springs has grown into a monster as well, and talk about traffic, you feel like you are in Denver or New York it is so congested and takes so long trying to cross Highway 40 from either side of the highway as I found out and you run out of patience

There was a time when I would have said Southeastern Washington (I grew up there)... but then it really started growing because of a certain industry, and all these Californians and Easterners moved there. (I used to have a job where I saw a lot of driver's licenses) After that, it got a lot less friendly and polite. The small towns of Northeastern Oregon are quite friendly... drivers stop and let you cross the street all the time there, smile and wave. But the friendliness is mostly superficial, like politeness mostly... trying to actually get to know someone there is very difficult. (Speaking from experience.) I agree with Maarten, that there are friendly and nasty people everywhere... it's just the ratio of such that makes the difference!  * wink *

Some southern people do this, I agree with that. However, I've lived in the south all my life and I've never been like this. I don't do things quite a subtle. If I want to tell someone to go to hell, I'll say it just like that. I don't care who you are, where I'm at, or who's around. If it needs to be said, it'll be said. But, I also am a very nice person. Giving everyone a chance until they cross me. But, yeah, I know what you mean. My dad's one person that can really crack me up when it comes to this kind of thing. His motto: you can call someone a son of a dog with a smile on your face. They don't even realize that you've insulted them until later. It's quite funny.

Me to, I can tell the difference as I am driving home from Denver and it so much better up here, but Denver is ok some times , but not all the time. We have almost everything we need up here without shopping in Denver, there is a Wal-Mart and a Target Store and a Home Depot and we have an Office Max and so many stores to shop at, plus I shop here online like Blair and you can shop at Target and Wal-Mart online so easy to look up and it takes a week to get my order in the mail which is not bad at all and I save gas in the car. If I go to Denver at all it will be a doctors appointment of some kind. I have Well Water in this place where I live and it gets very cold for drinking.

A local underground spring , Colorado Springs comes to mind and perhaps Steamboat Springs as I think about it I do not know where these places are at.

We do have the Amtrac Train that passes right through here and it is so cool! to watch the trains go by and you can see the trains from highway 40, that is how close they come near the highway. Plus there is a small Airport just behind my house and these small jets take off and land here and there is another Airport in this County Granby Colorado , we have 2 airports and over in Vail there is another airport as well. So much has changed up here, and highway 40 is being paved all over again almost from Kremmling > Hot Sulphur Springs 10 miles of this highway all the way up Byers Canyon, and highway 9 to Silverthorne is being paved.

And with Social Security I cannot go over $800.00 a month and they allow you to have a job which is good , because Social Security alone I could not pay my bills and survive , the rent alone is $300.00 a month along with my gas and electric bill it runs me $225.00 a month and my checks are just over $700.00 a month which disappears very fast after I pay my bills

Wherever the cash comes from it will be gone just like that right before our eyes, and today I am picking up a new gate at the Hardware Store and the price is not bad thank goodness! and yesterday I paid some of my bills, I get my checks on the 3rd each month and my job I get paid this Friday a $300.00 check from housekeeping every 2 weeks

And then more bills will get paid with this next check I am getting this week, plus I paid something towards my hospital bill very important and the cost of heating our homes is going up this Winter and it will hurt a lot of people who are poor. I got myself on budget billing where I pay so much a month or whatever it comes out to? And I can get money back as well and this is the electric company and the gas bill I can do as well, we are having an early winter right now in Colorado and the Ski Resorts Keystone and Breckenridge are talking about opening up on Halloween or near the end of the month

our heat costs are going to be insane this winter....am pretty nervous about it, for our heat is oil. this will be our first winter in this new place, so it'll be interesting to see just how much it actually costs. i think i'm gonna have to purchase some electric blankets and some plug-in heaters....although our electric bills are pretty flipping high as well.

Last night it got really cold and chilly outside and I went around the house checking all of my windows to make sure they are tight and closed, and I put up some of those glass storm windows to keep the heat in and it stays nice and warm in here, all I have is just a furnace and no wood burning stove, and my furnace uses natural gas and that is going up this winter ouch" my heating bills are taken care of by LEAP they help to pay my heating costs I would be swamped with a mountain of bills if not for this.

Yes Julie you are lucky because I am addicted to sleeping pills and I take one or two at bedtime to help me sleep and it helps with the pain in my right arm and the doctor did tell me it was carpal tunnel and now I will go to physical therapy I have to make an appointment, plus I am going to ladies bible study this morning out in Granby and the snowstorm did not get us up here only Denver and the foothills got all of the snow 10 inches of it and further south in Silverthorne they got 10 inches we got the rain mixed with snow. I have done a new survey on sleeping pills and I hope and pray that this one goes thru and gets qualified instead of nitpicked all of the time , I try to do something new only to have it turned down which is very frustrating!

Yes I thought that , I did a good survey on sleeping pills and choosing your gender it really does happen to some people who are born, they are born both male and female hermaphrodite and I have looked this up on the internet before. But yes being hermaphrodite the doctors who help deliver you from your mother can and will choose a sex for you and they decide if you are male or female and this is real bad, because later on in life as you grow up you will be saying ; I feel so much like a woman and the doctors made me a man, I will have a sex change, or the doctors make you a woman and yet you know yourself to be a man and so on it goes. I would rather choose a sex for me then have doctors do it for me they do not know if we are really and truly female or male that is up to God in heaven

This was pretty much the same way for me as I was growing up , I was living my life as 2 different people and I have learned later on in life who I truly and honestly am, and at ladies bible study we all talked about this do you know who you are? It took me 40 long years to know the truth about me and who I was born to be, and yet I went through 40 years of hell and torture because my family and former church friends were telling me this is who you are what they see on the outside is who we are , but on the inside is our hearts and we know our own body and what it is telling us? Do we ignore all of the warning signals and bells telling us there is something horrible wrong with us and we just ignore all of the warning bells and signals telling us there is danger and something wrong with my life????????? dingg ding ding , I was so busy believing everything that everybody told me and I just believed lie after lie and it nearly cost me my life because of a stubborn coldhearted family who did not understand nothing along with some of these other people who take NO for an answer. Some people do not know what it is like living a double life and decieving other people and not being honest about yourself and who you truly are born to be.

Well thank you Julie so much. I just want to help somebody if I can, and get lots of feedback on this subject and hear what other people have to say about sleeping pills, I feel that there is no danger or any harm taking these every night and it works for me , but it might not work so well for other people we are all different in many ways. I can take 2 pills at bedtime and I feel great! in the morning I am not dizzy at all , I feel good in the morning and my blood pressure is ok

Yes I did say poop to everybody and they tried everything to stop me from going through with this can you believe it" Julie somebody trying everything to stop you from becoming who you are? You talk about a war taking place that is what my life was like for 40 long stinking years and how I wanted to commit suicide because of who I was before and it just got to me and I had more then I could take, I could not stand it any longer and suicide would have been the answer if not for God in heaven, he knows who we really are?

Back when I first started on sleeping pills I was scared and afraid because if you get up in the middle of the night it feels like you are drunk or high and I was afraid that I was going to die, and now they really do not affect me to much I can get up early in the morning at 6 and I go to bed at 9 or 10 and I do not feel sick or dizzy and I can drive my car ok

i agree....i do believe that wisdom comes w/ age and experience, thus making everything a little bit brighter.

Yes it does seem that wisdom comes with age and experience plus as we get older and much wiser as well, and it does help us out in some way's

And tomorrow morning is back to work cleaning condos and I need all the wisdom that I can get to clean, a very dirty condo plenty of wisdom, and I have 3 brand new tires on my car plus some other work was done on the car to get me to my job 40 miles from here. I want everything fixed on the car and I needed new tires plus they did a brake job because my brakes were down to almost nothing plus a new front wheel so that I can get a front end alignment

we need work done on the car as well. it absolutely has to make it through the winter, and until tax time. this car has been awesome....got it back in early 2001, and there were pretty many miles on it to begin with, but i think we've just about doubled the milage in that time....got it for 1800 bucks....an AWESOME deal by all means.

Tax time will be interesting this coming new year , because I am making even more money then the past years and I have never ever owed money on my taxes , I have alway's gotten a refund every year since 2000 or since I can remember? And this next year I except to be much different and I may , or I may not have to pay taxes and it all depends on how much I have earned? And it is a whopping! fortune! with 3 part time jobs plus my social security it could really easy add up at tax time. My car I bought it for $3,500 and I got it around the same time that you bought your car and my car was a used police car, it will get up and go whoosh>> look out here she comes???? I have front wheel drive and it feels like a 4x4 the way it takes off in the snow

i had a friend years ago who only purchased used cop cars. they were pretty fun and quick, only drawback was that someone had to open the doo9rs for you to get out of the back seat

My car has 4 doors and this is a first for me owning a car with 4 doors, and they all open I have no problem at all. I see what you mean from the inside? They work as well from the inside no trouble getting out the 2 back doors I have had friends ride in the backseat and they were able to get out, and yes this car is fun! to drive and I do watch my speed because the State Police are everywhere just like bugs on your windshield or bumper, I will be driving down highway 40 and all of a sudden there they are?? The State Police cannot miss them
