Maine #31 "Mainers are open and warm"

Vermont #34 "Locals will go out of their way to help visitors to the area"

Connecticut #38 "Connecticut residents are polite, reserved and generally nice, but outright friendly? Not so much."

Rhode Island #41 "You won’t exactly be greeted with a smile from the local cashier"
