The Different States Of America Summed Up In One Pic Each
With millions of citizens, we are very aware of the fact that one photo cannot do justice to an entire state. These photos, however, perfectly encapsulate what each of the states of America vaguely represents. Take a look at the pictures and be the judge.
We will start off with the south-side, where pickup trucks, butter, and corn fields prevail. That’s right, this is Alabama in America. If this photo gives you confusion, then you are probably from the North. This guy is in his ‘Bama gear eagerly waiting to chill on his redneck pool chair glowing with state-pride.
Arkansas in America is obviously known for giving hunting license when you are barely ready. And also, there is a common practice of sneaking away moonshine from dad’s liquor shelf and the curiosity to try tons of tobacco. The state residents are also well known for loving fried catfish and sweet tea. True right?
The state of Alaska is in America which is completely red, white, and blue even though it is directly connected to Canada. You could even say it is mostly in white color due to the massive snowfall and chilly weather. The people here are known to have regular encounters with grizzly bears and moose on their way to the store. It is also clear that Sarah Palin jokes will forever live on.
In extreme opposite to Alaska, the state of Arizona in America has a blazing hot weather. This state mostly consists of desert, rattlesnakes, and forest fires, right? Nope, not really. It is actually known for their hot sauce and their struggle to escape the heat during car rides. The state is home to The Grand Canyon n and is a big tourist attraction.
California is very complicated to explain as the locals say SoCal and NorCal are two different worlds. The South consists of Hollywood, Los Angeles, and Beverly Hills. They love Starbucks and are usually always very stylish and good-looking. Up North, you have Yosemite, Joshua Tree, and the Silicon Valley. There is a craze for hiking around here. All of the residents in California have what is called the West Coast chill.
Rocky Mountain High is one thing that pretty much describes Colorado. Most of the people here have a very chilled-out vibe and most of the folks from Colorado have a little hippie spirit in them. Marijuana is legalized here proving how laid back they are. The Coloradans always go for hikes and camping trips due to the perfect environment it provides.
Connecticut is a rich state that is right beside New York City. The state is known for yachts, crew neck shirts and libertarian view of things. Since it is not a huge state, the people know one another quite well and it could actually turn out to be a nice thing. However, it goes to show that all of the elders would know about your business, literally.
Delaware is famous for being the very first state and also for how it deals with goods. There are no taxes here. You could shop in this state and can go tax-free. The southern half of Delaware is called the “Slower and Lower” half. You heard that right. It is very laid back and they do practice a very slow-life. The North is very much affiliated with people from Philly
Florida homes the happiest place on Earth(Disney World. This state, however, has a history of the exact opposite of what it represents. Tourists from all over flood in Key West, Cubans in Miami, retired Jewish people in Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, leaving the rest of the state to be a big red-neck haven. Many reports about alligators being found on the mainland have occurred.
Southern hospitality is what Georgia represents with Atlanta being the heart of the business and the capital of this state. Atlanta has spawned multiple musical geniuses(Ray Charles, Outkast, etc). There is sleepy Savannah. This is a town straight out of the 18th century and still has all of its beauty and elegance, maintaining a quiet, slow-moving atmosphere. There are peaches, sweet tea, and barbecue almost everywhere.
Since Hawaii is an island, many people forget that it is actually a part of the United States. This state is volcano prone and is a cluster of tiny islands. Even though most of the islands (especially Waikiki and Honolulu) have a high tourist rate, Hawaii is full of rich culture separate from a flower necklace. Their traditional food, Poke, and Malasadas are delicious and their hula dance is captivating.
The state of Idaho is not really known for much, except for potatoes. In Idaho, there is a lot of agricultural activities and farming happening. Most of the residents have a gun license and are avid hunters. The people are known to love staying secluded and private in this state.
Chicago is famous but people often forget that it is in Illinois. Chicago is the cultural and business hub of the mid-west, however, in Illinois there is nothing much happening other than farming and agricultural practices. Other than Chicago, all the other parts of Illinois is the same. There is a southern style practiced elsewhere.
The locals of Indiana are known as Hoosiers. The reason for this is unknown although many have tried to come up with an explanation. Not only the basketball team but everyone else in Indian has embraced this nickname. The locals are known for a few stuff. They follow a religion, even closing liquor stores on Sundays, grow a lot of corn and are extremely supportive of their state athletes.
This mid-western state is popular as a fly-over state. Cornfields and farms fill this state but Iowa has some culture to offer. Iowa City is actually like the Austin, Texas in the mid-west region. The natural landscape is phenomenal and hippies flood this state.
The people of Kansas claim to own the fictional characters like Superman because Clark Kent was raised in Smallville, a fictional but rural area in Kansas state, and even The Wizard Of Oz’s Dorothy. This state is a very conservative state that is a firm believer if the Holy Bible and has doubts about the science of evolution still.
Kentucky is no doubt famous for the Colonel’s chicken (KFC). Kentucky is laden with bluegrass fields that are luscious, deep green type of grass that is pleasing to the eyes and soft to the touch. Kentucky also holds the annual Kentucky Derby, where the rich adorn huge hats while watching horses race.
Louisiana holds the yearly Mardi Gras celebration that is famous worldwide. This festival is heaven for people who love to see boobs and shiny beads whit alcohol everywhere. But Louisiana is also undoubtedly a die-hard Saints fan and also expert in southern home cooking. The birthplace of Jazz also produced many iconic musicians.
Maine is the place for seafood lovers where seafood is considered to be a fine dining experience. During the summer, the place is perfect for going hiking, fishing, and camping. Winter drives Maine to be the second snowiest state in the United States(obviously, since it’s so close to Canada).
Maryland is situated just under the Mason-Dixon line (the line that divides the North from the South) but they do not associate themselves as Southerners. Marylanders are, however, very similar to their neighboring states in the north and west. Again, this state loves seafood with sports fans everywhere.
Massachusetts has a very distinctive accent to themselves. The will always pronounce some words a little differently. Boston is the most popular city here and it is the home of the Red Sox. One of the most prestigious universities, Harvard is located here as well. Many actors have originated from the state of Massachusetts.
Michigan has a confusing characteristic. People love to go fishing and hunting but then there are others like the famous rapper Eminem of 8-mile, Detroit! Michigan is a boiling pot of these two contrasts. The automobile companies are mostly set up here and all of the locals know their cities quite well so they never need to make use of a map.
People from Minnesota are known for two things: being extremely nice and also for their accent! The people who have come from this state will definitely be the most affectionate and good-hearted people you will ever find. Since they are neighbors to Canada, some could say they have learned their mannerisms and friendliness from them.
In school, we have all learned by-heart the spelling of this state. The people here are true Southerners and rightfully act so. It is situated in the Bible Belt, hence there are various churches along the road. This state has the highest rate of teens that are pregnant in the country. The Confederate flag is a sign of pride here and has sparked up many conflicts with other progressive states.

Montana is not the place for vegans or vegetarians because there is meat everywhere. The locals adore hunting season much more than the holiday season and are experts in hunting and preparing their own meals. They are tough so harsh weathers are not a problem. It is home to the Yellowstone Park and National Glacier Park so the bad weather is fine.
Nebraska and corn. The people of Nebraska basically ass corn onto anything they eat. Why is there even an ice cream that is corn flavored in this state? They are also known to value their meat and their Kool-aid. Most of the locals take up jobs as truckers so this comes as no surprise.
When you think of Nevada, you automatically think of Las Vegas. The locals consider visiting Las Vegas a tourist trap and many try to avoid this. Public intoxication is legal and there is 24/7 alcohol service so obviously, the people here know how to party. Nevada also has Lake Tahoe which is one of the main tourist spots.
New Hampshire is incredibly enchanting during the season of autumn. Many tourists from within the country or outside come to this state to experience the change in leaf colors, filled up in their magic. This became so popular that the locals have named these tourists “Flatlanders” who have also come to see the mountains.
New Jersey can be dissected into two places even though it is small in size. It is divided into Central and North Jersey and South Jersey. The northern part is green and luscious where millionaires have mansions. South Jersey, on the other hand, is home to Jersey Shore and all that it entails, hairstyle and all.
New Mexico has a unique vibe to it and is next to Mexico. The state has the most abundant Native American heritage in the United States. The locals speak a mixture of English and Spanish called Spanglish, with an incredible love for green chilies. New Mexico is where you would want to visit if ever you want to see real-life cowboy doing his thing.
The Big Apple is home to Times Square, Broadway, and Madison Square Garden. New York is a massive plot of land where New York City occupies the very tail of the entire territory. There are suburbs and small rural areas like Albany and Buffalo in New York. The Mets and Yankee fans are always in debate here.
North Carolina is located in the south. They serve good barbecues and love to swim in the swimming holes. They adore biscuits and they have them for almost all their meals. Ashville is a very hippie state and therefore very different from the other parts of North Carolina.
This state is at the northernmost part of the country. They hold many similarities with Canadians as they are neighbors. People often get a little confused when they reach Canada as there is not much difference in their friendliness and politeness. The state loves Jesus. There is also a very large portion of people who are of Scandinavian descent.

But one thing for sure is that the people her love to live life in the most natural way possible.
Pennsylvania has Philly on a side, Pittsburg to the right-side, and Amish country right in the middle. Philadelphia is where the Declaration of Independence was signed where they love their cheese. Pittsburg, on the other hand, is the industrial city. Middle Pennsylvania homes the Pennsylvania Dutch, or the Amish. Such a weird mixture of different cultures right.
Rhode Island is home to the Griffin family from Family Guy. Since the state is the smallest in the country, trips are usually very small coverage. The summer weather in Rhode Island is perfect for the beach but winter is very extreme. Their seafood is worth mentioning too.
Now we have South Carolina. The two states are quite similar but South Dakota does have its differences. They are known for their tea, biscuits and their barbecues. Since the state is located in the deeper end of the country there are multiple rebel flags and conservatives voicing their opinions in public. Fun, right?
South Dakota is where Mount Rushmore is located. The populations here is very low so there are not very many folks to see. Also, many buffaloes can be seen on the side of the roads so you can pretty much guess what kind of a state it is. They still maintain that they are better than North Dakota.
Tennessee is evidently the state that has a deep musical root where cowboys roam the land. You must have heard of the country songs that have been produced in Nashville. They are famous for their Tennessee whiskey and their excellent barbecues. As there are many red-neck, quite a few rebel flags and Bible teachings will be there in Tennessee.

Vermont is the next best thing to get maple syrup from, if not from Canada.

They are usually very outdoorsy people who find enjoyment in swimming, kayaking, and hiking. The families here are usually very close and comfortable with one another.
The locals of Wisconsin love cheese and their curds. It is, therefore, no surprise that they would even walk around public with Styrofoam blocks on top of their heads. They are expert in hunting and skinning deer and can be seen wearing camouflage patterns occasionally. It snows here but the people remain unbothered.
The people of Wyoming are said to raise on the outdoors so they obviously enjoy activities like hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, or camping. Most of them are republicans so they are not really appreciative of the liberal Coloradan neighbors (called Greenies) joining their Grand Old Party state. They are supporters of the 2nd Amendment who love their whiskey strong.
D.C is technically not a state but a district which homes more than 650,000 people. There are patriotic and historical monuments everywhere in this district so obviously, the locals here are very nationalistic in their thinking and ways of living. The Whitehouse, the Capital Building, and the Lincoln Memorial are all located here but these are just tourist attractions.
