I’m not sure I can tell the tiny nuances between all the different accents in this country, like, I’m not sure I can tell you the difference between someone from Texas versus Oklahoma, or Cincinnati versus southern Ohio. But apparently this website can. The travel website Big 7 just ranked FIFTY different American accents from the sexiest to least sexy.
The 10 sexiest are: Texas, Boston, New York, Maine, Chicago, Mississippi, Hawaii, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and California.
And the 10 least sexy are: Long Island, New Jersey, Minnesota, Alaska, California Valley, southern Ohio, Florida, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Pennsylvania Dutch.
(Here’s the full list.)
