Florida has beaches, year-round sunshine, and amusement parks. But just because we're home to the happiest place on earth doesn't mean we're the friendliest!

According to a new report, Florida has been ranked one of the least-friendly states in the country.

That’s according to travel website Big Seven Travel, who recently published their list of the friendliest states in America.

Based on their survey, Florida ranked 42nd out of 50, beating out Nevada, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and New York, which earned the distinction of least-friendliest state.

These rankings are based on a social media survey.
