6. My state does not have freeways.

It has " the 2 lane and the 4 lane" roads, even I-65 and 1-10 is called a "4-lane"

seat belts are apparently for sissies, as are speed limits.

You can have a nice conversation with perfect strangers for 15 minutes or more.
This tends to slow down the grocery checkout lines.

There are green trees every month of the year.

Perfect strangers will provide hospitality during hurricanes.
"Give you the shirt off their back" is not just an expression, it is a reality here.

Most of the state has small towns which are just like Mayberry, and they are wonderful.

Whole generations grow up without ever seeing snow.
This is NOT a plus when 1/2" of snow does fall every 10 years or so and people try to drive on it.

Best place on earth to retire, cost of living is half what it is on the coasts.
