To a majority of the people who live in Louisiana, this is home, and moving has never crossed their minds. The food, culture, people, and the scenery is of the best that the USA has to offer.

However, if you have a young family I can see how other states may be appealing. The schools in Louisiana continue to rank at the bottom in the nation, crime is on the rise all across the state, and we have some of the highest tax rates in the country. You throw in the extremely hot summers, mosquitoes, and hurricanes to the mix and you got a few good reasons to move your family to another part of the country.

With all that being said, we poised the question on our Facebook page. We asked, "If money was not an object, what state would you move to?" Some of the answers I expected and some surprised me like states known for their large amounts of tornadoes.

I lived in Jonesboro, Arkansas for a cup of coffee. During that time two F-5 tornadoes devasted towns just a few miles away from where I lived and actually wiped one small town off the map. Even though the people were amazing, the landscape was beautiful, and I was making the best money of my life at that time, I still knew that Tornado Alley was not for me.

Here are the Top 5 states Louisiana residents would move to if money were no object:
