Top 10 Most Boring U.S. States

The Top Ten

1 Iowa Iowa is a U.S. state in the Midwestern United States, bordered by the Mississippi River on the east and the Missouri River and the Big Sioux River on the west.

It's literally cornfields, unless you move to a big city. Nothing really there, if you want something similar to Iowa, move to Ohio.

The only good thing that ever came outta Iowa was Slipknot

Ya know, it is pretty boring here. But hey, at least I live by a major city in Iowa where it’s not as boring (I live in Davenport. Save me) - KingSlayer93316

I bet most people just put this here just because they saw farmland in Iowa and read a few things on the internet. - JakePlaid

2 Wyoming Wyoming is a state in the mountain region of the Western United States. The state is the tenth largest by area, but the least populous and the second least densely populated of the 50 United States.

Very Boring, please avoid at all costs, especially if you are from California.

I drove through Wyoming’s plains and almost fell asleep several times

It is a square!

Did you know, there are only two sets of escalators in the entire state?

3 Nebraska Nebraska is a state that lies in both the Great Plains and the Midwestern United States. Its state capital is Lincoln.

Nebraska is trucks and fields! A lot of things there are 😒 Definitely the most stupid

4 Delaware Delaware is one of the Mid-Atlantic states located in the Northeast megalopolis region of the United States.

I'm doing a report on Delaware for school and there's nothing interesting to write about.

Delaware isn't even famous for anything. It doesn't register on the meter at all because nobody knows anything about it. At least Wyoming has Yellowstone, North Dakota has oil, and Nebraska has Warren Buffett.

It has only 3 counties and has 950,000 people. My state of Idaho is ten times as interesting as Delaware.

There's nothing there - ikerevievs

5 Kansas Kansas is a U.S. state located in the Midwestern United States. It is named after the Kansa Native American tribe, which inhabited the area.

Boring? The state of Missery has to use "Kansas" as part of their claim to fame Kansas City Mo.

Kansas tries really hard to claim a city in Missouri because their state is so boring

This is why the state of Kansas attempts to claim Kansas City MO. They know their state is terrible

Should be #1

6 Alaska Alaska is a U.S. state situated in the northwest extremity of the Americas. The Canadian administrative divisions of British Columbia and Yukon border the state to the east; it has a maritime border with Russia to the west across the Bering Strait.

How does having earthquakes make Alaska Boring? Do you even know the definition of boring? We have 17 out of the top 20 tallest mountains in America, over half of the worlds glaciers, more coastline than the rest of the US combined, we have North America’s largest oil field, we have America’s two largest forests, we have no plants that are poisonous to the touch, etc.

Alaska has so much more to offer than some of the other rural states I can't see how it makes a boring list. I suppose these are big city dwellers. When did earthquakes become boring?

Alaska is so boring! It is the worst state because it has the most earthquakes from 1974-2003!

Alaska has too many earthquakes! - Maryland88

7 Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

I'll give Arkansas this. If you're a redneck who's stuck in the 60's this is heaven

8 Indiana

We're so bored we come to sites like this and try to get Indiana higher up.

Bloomington is great.

In southern Indiana, going out to Rural King is as close as it gets to fun.

Seriously my state is a bore

9 North Dakota North Dakota is the 39th state of the United States, having been admitted to the union on November 2, 1889.
10 New York New York is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic Region. New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States. With an estimated 19.54 million residents in 2018, it is the fourth most populous state. In order to distinguish the state from the city with the same name, it is more.

Overrated and terrible state!

Why is this on the list?

Um no! I live IN NY and there is so much going on and it's so fun - Jackhammer619

The Contenders

11 Ohio Ohio is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. Ohio is the 34th largest by area, the 7th most populous, and the 10th most densely populated of the 50 United States.

This place stucks

It has nothing. I've been living here since in was born I'm 15 now trust me don't come

I have tried to make the best of it to no avail. A ton of restaurants to choose from is the only positive. Unless you live and die for the Buckeye's don;t bother with this state.

so true

12 Montana Montana is a state in the Western region of the United States. The state's name is derived from the Spanish word montaña.

Its boring as hell

It’s beautiful, but there is nothing to do (I was in Montana not that long ago) - KingSlayer93316

It's the one state where even people who live there don't remember what Montana is

13 Connecticut

Literally. Nothing. Here. I grew up here. Absolutely nothing to do.

There are things to do in CT. It is a pretty run down looking state after having lived in NC. Greensboro, NC, which is hardly a sophisticated place, makes parts of CT look downright demilitarised. It's simply not a very lively place. people are very standoffish and unfriendly in general, nobody likes to talk. Very unhappy place. It's the only place I've ever lived where people stop speaking when you pass them on a bike trail, tense as hell, then resume their convos as if you are contagious. people here are guarded and the pace of life is quick, they think they are New Yorkers. There is very little sense of community and people here seem really mentally ill, they stare at you like you are a ghost. A lot of them will rant and rave about things but seem to have zero sense of humour. I've found too many people here to be arrogant yet insecure at the same time and most of them just like to make money. I'd rather live in the bible belt again than in CT, which is saying a lot because I'm not ...more - silverybird72

I agree. CT is the most boring state to live in.

The only thing here is Lake Compounce, seriously if your parents ask you "Want to go to Lake Compounce" Say no, there's nothing here.

14 Idaho Idaho is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. Idaho is the 14th largest, the 39th most populous, and the 7th least densely populated of the 50 United States.

Potatoes. That’s about it - KingSlayer93316

15 South Dakota

How tf? We have the badlands, plenty of lakes, about eight professional sports teams, and mount rushmore, along with several bars to meet and talk with other people. Your just not looking hard enough for things to do.

its stupid

16 Vermont

I literally forgot this was a state.

How are mountains boring?

I believe this place is pretty amazing, despite the fact that it is mainly trees, mountians, and broken down houses. Like Burlington is pretty lit

Nothing but trees, mountains, and broken down houses!

17 Mississippi

The most racist state in the entire U.S. don't move here, just look at the flag.

No city literally the highest thing I've seen is their mall the most tech savvy thing there is McDonald's everything is is stuck on the VHS tape era

18 Minnesota Minnesota is a state in the Midwestern United States. Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd state on May 11, 1858, created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory.

I live here, not boring, look at the south who wants summer year round, at least we can handle the cold

Definitely NOT! I play hockey so I want to move here. Probably because of the cold

19 Kentucky Kentucky, officially the Commonwealth of Kentucky, is a state located in the east south-central region of the United States.

I live here and its stupid

20 Michigan

Cold dead scary snowy ugly dark skies flat ugly trees

Michigan is so poor and cold. It's to sad how Detroit is. I Feel bad. But Michigan is still so boring

21 Nevada Nevada is a state in the Western, Mountain West, and Southwestern regions of the United States of America.

Why is this on the list? Vegas is awesome!

Las Vegas. Suitable only for persons at ages 18 and over.

Strip clubs, bars, casinos. You can't do any of that until your 21 - TheRemixr

More like 21 and older, if you can't drink or gamble, why go?

22 New Mexico

Nothing to do out there.

Sand, chili, and UFOs

23 Missouri Missouri is a state located in the Midwestern United States. It is the 21st most extensive, and the 18th most populous of the fifty states.

Almost ALL 50 states are here. At this point, the US is BORING - KingSlayer93316

This is where I was born - Untildawn8

Does not belong on the list

Take it off the list now! I was born in New Jersey! Lots of stuff happen there! It's not boring but it's a bad state to live in. There's to many crimes and stuff happening there. That's why we moved to NC (North Carolina).

30 Maryland Maryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

it sucks

31 Colorado Colorado is a state in the United States encompassing most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains.

Colorado is maybe the least boring state. What is the basis for these rankings?

It has boring weather.

Colorado is like the best state. Great views and great for skiiers

Does not belong on the list.

California had 4895 earthquakes from 1974-2003!

I went to LA and I am a little unpleased about the city. The museums there can be boring and the drives are long due to the city being huge.

But Universal Studios was fine.

33 Arizona Arizona is a U.S. state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states.

Arizona is cool. You got the Grand Canyon - KingSlayer93316

Buddy Archer got killed in that state!

34 Georgia Georgia is a state located in the southeastern United States. It was established in 1732, the last of the original Thirteen Colonies.

This state boring

If u think we are fun your dead wrong, If you consider farming and dirt roads everywhere fun that's us. And for us incest is the wincest

35 Florida

There's a lot of things to do in Florida other than going to the beaches and going to amusement parks. Visit some of the old dead towns in the Panhandle, try photography, bird-watching, trainspotting, cycling. Once you step outside, the sky is the limit.

Why isn't this near the number 1? The only places you can really go without dying are small towns.

36 New Hampshire

If you are from absolutely anywhere else on the planet, you will find it SO DULL here.

37 Utah Utah is a state in the western United States. It became the 45th state admitted to the Union on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th-largest, the 31st-most populous, and the 10th-least-densely populated of the 50 United States.

About half the students I went to high school with left the state within five years after graduation. Yes, we have the beach and mountains but other than that, it’s very plain.

45 Massachusetts Massachusetts, officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England part of the northeastern region of the United States.

I'm impressed! We rank 44th. I was certain we'd be top 10. - RobertWisdom

This state is the best

This state sucks and is so boring

46 Hawaii Hawaii is the 50th and most recent state of the United States of America, receiving statehood on August 21, 1959.

Now, you may be asking yourself, “OP, why are you saying Hawaii is boring? You probably don't even know the place! ”, well, that's where you're wrong.

I am a local in Hawaii, born in Hawaii as an Asian-American, a majority in Hawaii. I'm always waiting for the next thing to happen, always waiting. It turns from minutes, to hours, days, weeks, months, hell, maybe even years on end. Why is this so, to me?

That's because I wasn't really meant to live in Hawaii. My interests are on different worlds from most other people I know. I like video games that can keep me engaged, I also like to be knowing what is happening. Knowledge means a lot to me, as well as being on track. If I can't have either of those things, consider me out when I am able to be.

Hell, even think about it in a tourist perspective, doesn't it get tiring going to the same-looking beaches day after day after day? Same goes for the buildings you go to. That's almost all you can do in Hawaii as a ...more

Hawaii is going to be fun. The scariest part is I'm going fly a plane. Gulp Gulp! But I still had good time.

Hawaii had 1533 earthquakes from 1974-2003!

Whoever put this on the list is on methamphetamine
