What state has the most days of sunshine?
Popular belief is Florida (the sunshine state), however, that is merely the "popular" belief perpetuated by license plates and the Florida visitors bureau. The actual meteorological data shows that 5 U.S. states actually have a greater claim on that title than Florida. The top state, and it makes sense when you think about it, is Arizona. Next, are California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas, in that order. These stats are from the national weather service and were reported in USA Today. http://www.usatoday.com/weather/news/2004-06-21-fla-sunshine_x.htm As stated in the USA Today article, Florida has more days where between 20% and 70% of the sun is blocked by clouds than anywhere else in the United States.

Queensland probably does not have any more days of sunshine than other states in Australia. However, it is perceived to have more days of sunshine per year than the other stat…es because it has a more temperate and consistent climate which is generally warmer.
