Of the states you listed, Washington (Seattle area primarily) is probably going to have the most data center space available. I've been to the Westin Building and Internap/Fisher Plaza in Seattle a few times, and from what I've heard they're pretty good facilities. I know there are others in the area (and I think Spokane has some data center space); you might want to search here for "seattle colocation" or "seattle data center". You might also want to try ColoTraq; I've never used it but I've seen it advertised:
I'm not sure where ScreamingEaglePC is getting his information, but California undoubtedly has the most data center square footage of any state, seeing as there are two major markets there (Bay Area and LA). I would guess the Bay Area has by far the most data center space of any area in the country; Equinix alone has 3 data centers in Silicon Valley totaling around 400,000 sq. ft., and they just bought a fourth bringing it to over 500,000 sq. ft total.
About a year ago, this would be valid. (over a year actually)

Wow lots of false info here; or at least contradictory to my understanding. There are loads of U.S. data centers outside Florida / Texas. I know Texas is big, but New York, Chicago, Silicon Valley, and several few other areas have plenty of sizable data centers; they just don't have as many noisemakers on WHT. Also, are you sure FS owns a facility?
Here are a few of the major chains, and their location maps..

Pretty good, but few mistakes. pwebtech (my company doesn't host at nac anymore ) and JVDS, also isn't at interserver and vpscolo isn't at peer1 anymore. All the above mentioned have been consolidated into the Fortress ITX datacenter. Otherwise this is a very nice list.

I believe he was looking for all the *major* data centers... there are quite a number of DC's in California.
Now, if we're talking small-medium data centers in California, there are lots of 'em. Even small technology companies have their own "server room" aka data center. Now, this room varies in size depending on the company, some are huge that occupies the entire floor and some are merely a small office room converted into a "data center" with state of the art bread racks.
