Would you consider your state to be the most beautiful place to live in all of America?

Each state offers a unique essence unlike any other, whether it be portrayed amid stunning nature scapes, or within unmatched man-made architecture. The state you live in might be beautiful, but how beautiful is it in comparison to the other 49?

According to Thrillist, Nebraska ranks as the 43rd most beautiful state in America. Per the list, the top five most beautiful states in the country include California, Hawaii, Alaska, Utah, and Colorado.

Here's what Thrillist had to say about why they ranked Nebraska as the 43rd most beautiful place in the U.S.:

"Sleep on Nebraska's subtle beauty if you want, but its big skies and rolling hills have a thoroughly pleasant and peaceful charm. As impressive as Toadstool Geologic Park (Nebraska's Badlands!) and Chimney Rock are, the Cornhusker State doesn't have the spectacular vistas of its neighbors to the west. What it does have is open spaces, the Platte River, and a complex and important ecosystem where literally millions of birds—including 80% of the world's sandhill cranes—visit every spring."
