Top 10 Most Boring U.S. States

The Top Ten

1 Iowa 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.

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

Iowa is how we eat they produce 37% of corn in the world we need farmers

Yes, they grow crops, but that doesn't stop it from being boring as hell. - Upuu

And it smells like pig farms

I bet imaginary smells are way better than your lying ability. - JakePlaid

The only good thing that ever came outta Iowa was Slipknot

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

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

Delaware is not boring! Just because its small, it doesn’t mean it’s boring. Every year my family and I go to the beach here and it’s so nice and beautiful. The beaches there are underrated so there isn’t many tourists there so there is plenty room on the beach. The beach towns are so fun with the boardwalks and the little shops and reasutrants. The marshes there are also gorgeous there and the air always smells like salt water which you know your at the beach.

3 Wyoming 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.

It's definitely not that state that everyone dreams of going to but it's not that boring there are really good sights to see and fun things to do. It's really not as bad as people say

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

You know, it doesn't matter how many escalaters it has, but the people that live there. Wyoming is beautiful, and has very nice people that live there. I love the bighorns, and there aren't taxes on food and other items! Wyoming is truly good living

Yellowstone. That’s it... - KingSlayer93316

4 Nebraska 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

5 Kansas 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.

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

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

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

There’s a few cool towns like Wichita Lawrence and part of KC but other than that there’s literally nothing. If you want to visit go to Wichita but that’s all KS has to offer really - Randomator

6 Alaska 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.

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

Lol no. Alaska is filled with beautiful mountains, lakes, etc.

The only bad thing is that Alaska is cold and it's cities are trash. - JakePlaid

7 Arkansas 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 Indiana

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

Seriously my state is a bore

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

Bloomington is great.

9 North Dakota North Dakota North Dakota is the 39th state of the United States, having been admitted to the union on November 2, 1889.
10 Ohio 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.

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

This place stucks

The Contenders

11 Vermont Vermont

Nothing but trees, mountains, and broken down houses!

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

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

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

Its boring as hell

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

13 New York New York

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

Overrated and terrible state!

14 South Dakota 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

15 Connecticut Connecticut

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

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.

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

16 Minnesota 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

17 Mississippi Mississippi

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

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

Why is this on the list? Vegas is awesome!

22 Washington Washington Washington is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States located north of Oregon, west of Idaho, and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is the only state named after a president.

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

Michigan has too many kids. I'm sorry I can't live in Michigan.

Michigan is so ugly. Horrible roads.

Michigan is one state that you get to experience all four seasons. Winters can be harsh but I've realized that its awesome to experience all four seasons. Michigan is not stupid. Yes, we have Detroit and Flint but there are bad cities in every state.
Since we're surrounded by the Great Lakes, we are the leader in crops.
Were the most recognizable on the map.
We get to use our hand to locate areas (lol).
We're home to FUDGE!
We have the 3rd longest bridge.
Michigan's Adventures is the little sister to Cedar Point
Michigan has The University of Michigan (Go Blue)!
We're the cherry capital.
We have Mackinac Island. - emily3232

It has boring weather.

Absolutely Not! This is one of the best states - Randomator

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

32 New Jersey New Jersey New Jersey is a state in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware.

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).

Does not belong on the list

33 Arizona 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.

Buddy Archer got killed in that state!

Arizona is cool. You got the Grand Canyon - KingSlayer93316

34 New Hampshire New Hampshire

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

37 California California

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.

38 Virginia Virginia Virginia, officially the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a state located in the South Atlantic region of the United States.

Full of rednecks and there is nothing to do... EVER!

This state is the best

This state sucks and is so boring

42 Florida 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.

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

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

Super boring.

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.
