What are the Best American States?

People like to rank things. There's a list for almost everything: the best colleges, the best movies, the best restaurants, the best states to live in. There's even the Definitive and Final Ranking of All 50 States list. A list that ranks an American state on everything (economy, taxes, physical beauty, food, weather, etc.).

At the bottom of the heap are Florida (50), Delaware (49), Ohio (48), Utah (46) and Mississippi (45). The states deemed the best are Michigan (1), Maine (2), Kentucky (3), Wisconsin (4) and Louisiana (5). Maine is ranked number 2, in no small part, because of Portland, a magnet for great restaurants, livability and access to nature.
