Florida Was Ranked #50 Of All The States. Here’s Why That’s Wrong.

Last year, the website Thrillist created a “definitive” ranking of all 50 states. I can still remember how shocked I was when I saw Florida ranked #50, dead last. They claimed the list was determined by things like each state’s contributions to the country, natural beauty, and food. However, they weren’t very specific about what supposedly made Florida the worst state in the country, merely citing the frequent craziness of Florida’s news stories and nothing else.

Let’s talk a little bit about why this “definitive” ranking is totally bogus:

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Florida will always be #1 on our list.

What do you think of Florida’s place on the list? What do you love most about our state?
