I was going to say Utah because it looks the most like a Coaster for my beverage......

but I have to agree with Tiki David and say Ohio.

I would say California is the hands down winner. A short trip through the threads and that is easy to see. Also Tiki Road Trip, The Book Of Tiki, Tiki Modern and Tiki Quest are loaded with great stuff from California if your talking of overall Tiki. Florida would be number two. It seems to me that the warmer climates with the influx of tourist had the largest concentration. And lets not rule out Hawaii by any means. And Ohio and Utah are in the running.

Hmmm..... I wonder what would happen if you were to look at the TIPSY factor and based it on Population density instead of location density. For example.. there are 2 tikis for every 150 people in any given area how would that change the perception of the question.

For shear "tiki density", pound for pound, I would have to say Florida. I can't seem to drive anywhere without seeing at least one.

State?

Historically one state gave birth to the American tiki tillage

- and remains ground zero, vibrant & most tiki - regardless if slightly behind in today's tiki per square yard statistics as many believe

CALIFORNIA, BABY!

This is a loaded question isn't it?

(or should we just get loaded and then question the question?)

It was Ohio, but Pablus moved so it's now Florida.

I'd have to say California. I guess it should be Hawaii but I think California took Tiki culture to a an entirely new level.
