There are pros and cons to every single place in the United States, from having a really cool roadside attraction or great weather to having ridiculously high taxes or pollution. It’s your call what you value most. But Thrillist decided to find the one key area in each state that is basically the worst thing about it.
If you disagree, don’t shoot the messenger here — unless you’re in South Carolina, as apparently that’s a fairly popular past time. But feel free to debate in the comments.
Stick up for your state, people!

The USS Zumwalt may not look as grandiose as a luxury yacht, but behind the plain, angular facade is $4.4 billion of technology that the Navy believes represents the future of warships.

If you've ever wanted to travel the world, but weren't sure where to start, you could do a lot worse than asking the suggestions of professional travelers. These guys travel the world for a living, so when they say a place is great, you porbably owe it to yourself to give them a listen!

We're living in a time where young adults are now more broke than ever, even compared to generations past.
In America, fast food is known for being a bit, well, excessive. We have stuffed crust pizzas and sandwiches made with fried chicken as a bun, and the fact that people can get 20 chicken McNuggets for less than $5 should be more disturbing than appetizing.
You get what you pay for.
But we’re not alone! Some of the most popular fast food chains in America also spread the love and calories overseas, but in sometimes delicious and sometimes disturbing ways.
