List Rules Yeah, we all know you THINK you hate Florida, but don't knock it until you've actually tried it! In other words, don't vote it down just because it doesn't sound cool.

The South is known for its gorgeous landscapes, its delicious foods, and its fun in the sun. Some of the best places to live in the country are in the south. Want gorgeous, sandy beaches? How about a quaint, friendly town? The south can provide you with all of that. But which states are the best to live in?

Would you rather live in a big city or a small town where everyone knows you? Do you want to live near the beach or on a farm? Would you rather live in a house or an apartment? These are all questions you should consider when thinking about where you think the best places to live are.
