Any guess which state the travel website Thrillist says has the worst winters in the whole country? Sure, I know what you're thinking, "Mr. Hanson, Mr. Hanson pick me, pick me. I know this one!" Put your hand down smarty pants. Let's see if you're right.

Ok, before we get to the most miserable winters in America, here are the five states with the best winters:

  • Hawaii (Best winter by far -- and no surprise whatsoever!)
  • Arizona (Also no surprise.)
  • California (Surprised yet? Me neither.)
  • Colorado (Average high in Denver in January is 50˚, so you get it all.)
  • Florida (Odd that is comes AFTER Colorado, but still not bad.)
