Let's try posting only positive remarks for a change.

No rankings, no comparisons. What elements do you like about states other than your favorite?

(modified to remove negative aspect from question)

I like everything good about every state!

-- how's that for a politically evasive answer?  

...some states just have more good than bad  ;)

Seriously though, I really liked New Hampshire long before I ever knew much about it simply because of its "live free or die" motto.  Someone I knew of from New Hampshire who attended the University of Utah admitted that everytime he stopped to get gasoline, he would clean his windshield and his NH license plates-- I don't know if he was kidding or really weird, but I was impressed that he thought so highly of it all.

I like the mountains and open space of the western states. Even though I am a New Hampshire supporter, I have to admit that the parts of Montana and Wyoming that I've been to are some of the most beautiful areas I've ever seen, with the exception of the pristine lakes and forests of northern Minnesota, my home state.

Wyoming and Alaska are next on my list and they have vast amounts of land (especially Alaska), low cost of living, extremely low populations, a spirit of independence, etc.  Alaska also is great for partying.  6 month long nights, good fishing, etc.

Deleware is a little warmer than the other states.

I have to say I feel like the kid in the proverbial candy store.

I am a cold-weather nut. I don't know what it is about freedom-friendly states and the cold; maybe it proves that its inhabitants are not addicted to comfort ;D

I love the easy familiarity I have with the Northeast. I love the sense of adventure that the west holds, especially Alaska.

While I have struggled with my perceived homogeneity of the Dakotas, the draw for them has been what I'll call the Hong Kong principle.  When we (and hopefully others) look 15-20 years back down the road, it will be with the satisfaction that it was not coastal access that accounted for our success, not an incredibly diverse commercial base that brought in wealth, it was just  freedom that did the trick.
