In Los Angeles (since most milk in the USA is semi-regional) I like Trader Joe's Whole Milk. Sweet, rich, creamy and very satisfying. I use this for everything in the house including steamed milk for espresso. Far better flavor than the normal supermarket brands.

Lane Even if you could get every milk product sold in the U.S. anyplace in the U.S. with the same quality everywhere, there would still be no BEST as taste is a personal thing and no 2 people taste things exactly the same. So what may be my personal preference will most likely be different than what Jason likes and both of ours will most likely be different than what you like.
Best is a hard thing to pick with any topic, it can only be best for you and your circumstances regardless of the item being considered, there are too many variables and each persons needs are different.
I suppose unless you live in a rigidly controlled by the government country and there is only ONE choice to choose from, then as it is the ONLY choice, it will be the best choice :D

Honestly I just use Publix Whole Milk for steaming or when I make my morning iced espresso, I go through a lot of milk between coffee and protein shakes with gym and Publix generic stuff is high quality for the $. Has anyone seen Milk prices lately? They've shot up in the last few weeks, my gallone went from 3.70 to 4.25, the last few years I always paid 3.50-3.70 or so, others like McArthur or other organic etuff etc is over $6 now and their expecting milk prices to rocket higher through and after this summer. Though for some reason if I'm out and get drip I do like a little half/half better than just milk.
I buy my wife almond or soy milk as that's what she likes, I can't stand that stuff, makes me gag lol. So it's all personal preference, there is no best, each person will be different.
I bought skim milk by accident when I was rushing other day, think it's a scam haha. Looks like milk, but taste more like water that's had white food coloring added lol, even 2% is far better tasting for not a big fat difference.
