About This Quiz

The United States is a huge, beautiful country. Although we're connected by a taste for nachos and a love of Netflix, Americans still have a lot of differences, many of them being rooted in our rich regional cultures. From Alabama to Wyoming and from Hawaii to Vermont, Americans enjoy a dizzying array of lifestyles, traditions, cuisines and values. 

With such a diverse set of places to choose from, it can be hard to decide where you should live. Is New Orleans right for you, or would the humid weather drive you crazy? Could you make it in Colorado, or would you miss the sea? Is Minnesota secretly the best state in the union for you, or would the understated charms of South Carolina suit you better?

Don't worry if you don't know the answer to these questions, because that's where this quiz comes in! We want to help you figure out which U.S. state is perfect for you, so we've come up with our most accurate geographical personality test yet. We're going to ask you about your pet peeves, political taste, career ambitions and more. By the end of the quiz, we'll be able to tell you for sure whether you should be a California girl or a Florida Man.😜 Ready to find out where you should be apartment-hunting?
