That’s according to Big Seven Travel who compiles the annual list. They say “That classic Southern charm is in full swing in Tennessee, where locals have a buzzing attitude and an eagerness to show off their city to out-of-towners. Add in the lively music scene and it’s clear why it’s one of the friendliest states in America”.
Minnesota ranked number one and New York ranked in last place.
The list also reports the most photographed places in East Tennessee as Clingman’s Dome, Dollywood and Laurel Falls.
