Most Depressing U.S. States

The Top Ten

1 West Virginia West Virginia

Apparently it says on Wikipedia that it has the least amount of water out of any state - Fabricitem

Horrible education system, almost no water, boring and depressing

2 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.
3 Mississippi Mississippi

To the people that think Arkansas and West Virginia are the most depressing states in the Union, I live on the "nicer" sides of the state, and I see people beating each other up over the Confederate flag, kids running around the streets naked and blasting nonsense on a Bluetooth speaker, schools SO bad most parents rather have their kids educated online, and did I mention the poverty is over the top and crime is an all time high? AND DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE WATER QUALITY! Overall, Mississippi makes Arkansas and West Virginia look like California in comparison, and I can't wait to move out of this circus palace!

4 Maine Maine

The people in my area are talking about killing themselves. I swear, the town needs to be put on suicide watch!

A beautiful state, but very poor. - Curtis_Huber
