The capital of Texas is Austin which claims to be the live music capital of the world. The city boasts an impressive line-up of music festivals like SXSW and Austin City Limits.

The “Grand Canyon State” comes in at the top as well. Though we admire Arizonans love of high heels, we certainly hope that no one is hiking around those canyons in them! Also located in the South Eastern United States, Arizona is known for deep canyons, a warm dessert climate and the largest cacti in the country.
