Most Forgotten U.S. States

The Top Ten
1 Nebraska Nebraska is a state that lies in both the Great Plains and the Midwestern United States. Its state capital is Lincoln.

Meh, I don't think it should be #1, the literal states that weren't even mentioned on this list should be higher, but Vermont should be top.

This is a state, oh yeah now I remember.

Is there anything in Nebraska?

Cool state, sad it's forgotten.

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.

I honestly feel bad for Wyoming. It has the lowest population, the 2nd lowest GDP, and the highest suicide rate. Wyoming is a beautiful state with Yellowstone, picturesque high plains and stunning mountains. It really makes me sad, almost to the point of crying, to see a state with all of this beauty being so forgotten and underrated. I want to go here someday.

Wyoming is not actually a state. The government is faking the existence of Wyoming to cover up for something big, Area 58. Anyone that says that Wyoming is real or they have been there is lying or has been paid off my the government. I am just uncovering the truth.

When I try to think of states I always forget, I think of Montana (memorable for Hannah) and Utah (Mormons! ). That being said, I truly had forgotten about the existance of Wyoming prior to seeing this. WY wins for me!

I played Chandler's 6-minute state game and spent 4 of the minutes trying to remember this state. I didn't win, to say the least.

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

I love Delaware!

I did have to tell all my friends what it was, though...

The capital is dover...

This is a state?

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

I didn't even know this was a state.

What state is it?

5 Kentucky Kentucky, officially the Commonwealth of Kentucky, is a state located in the east south-central region of the United States.
6 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.

What! WHY is Idaho in the top ten most forgotten states in the USA!?

7 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.

Is this even a place?

8 New Mexico

Wait, this wasn't part of mexico?

9 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 live in iowa. Everyone over passes it. Iowans are nice. We wave at any one, and if youve ever watched "A Field of Dreams" that was shot and takes place in Iowa. Also, we don't have flat lands. Its acually quite hilly. Now I'm ranting. Just remeber, never forget Iowa.

10 New Hampshire

Yes, it is real it is a great place. Just visit and it's very peaceful.

This state doesn't

I also live here

The Contenders
11 North Dakota North Dakota is the 39th state of the United States, having been admitted to the union on November 2, 1889.

Coldest U.S. state! But often forgotten...

12 Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

Some people try to forget about WI, because winter time sucks. However, we all suffer together!

13 Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.
14 Mississippi Mississippi is a southern U.S. state with the Mississippi River to its west, the state of Alabama to its east, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south.

Yes, Mississippi is forgotten and the most obese state. But since it's forgotten, that means that there isn't very many bad people. Although somebody did throw a cinder block though my 12 yr old daughters window while she was in there. Police couldn't get fingerprints because it was a "rough surface". I mean seriously police, do your job!

15 Vermont

I'm a Vermonter, and there are some people that think it's a town. No one even knows it was its own country!

I am in college and I just found out Vermont is a state.

Forgot this state existed!

Nobody knows this place

16 Indiana

Indiana is truly forgotten. Even though it is the host of the Indy 500, and a town that receives around one million visits, Santa Clause. In the southern half of the state there is almost no fields; It is filled with camp sites and a lot of waterfalls. Around NW Indiana there is Dunes State Park where about 10 Million people visit this every year! Also go back to Indianapolis because it his home to some of the most historical monuments. Finally, Indiana is home of one of the most common colleges in the USA, Notre Dame! Why is Indiana so forgetting.

I live in Indiana and I hate how unproblematic and forgotten we are. I wanna live somewhere where there is stuff actually going on ._.

Last time a relative called me before coming to visit from LA, they said "So Indiana is in Chicago? "
It seems that Indiana is always Chicago. What about Indianapolis?!

I lie to people and say I'm from Chicago. It's easier for them to understand.

17 Florida Florida is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. Florida is the southeasternmost U.S. state, with the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.

Only the panhandle, the peninsula is always mentioned, but I can see people thinking its more of a vacation spot than an actual state.

Not really! I mean, if anything, it's one of the most popular!

A well known state.

Obviously the most forgotten state like people forget it exists

18 Maine

One of our sheriff's deputies was shot this summer (during that huge string of cop shootings) and on the news they said three officers/law workers had been murdered that week, guess who they forgot to list. (I live in maine by the way)

It's just too forgettable. Heck it's capital is named after a city in Georgia...Augusta

19 Michigan

Honestly Michigan ain't that bad when you step outside of Detroit or Flint.

People don't know we exist unless you say "Detroit".

Most people who live outside of the U.S. probably don't know we exist

People Probably only know us because of Detroit and our terrible roads

20 West Virginia West Virginia is a state located in the Appalachian region of the Southern United States. It is bordered by Pennsylvania to the north, Maryland to the east and northeast, Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest, and Ohio to the northwest. West Virginia is the 41st largest state by area, ...read more.

I don't think I even knew this state existed before yesterday... I mean, I probably did from looking at maps, lists, state flags, but forgot about it every time. So it is by far the most forgotten US state.

Still gets lumped in with Virginia... We are a seperate state! Not Western Virginia. West Virginia! Big difference!

21 Rhode Island Rhode Island, officially the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, is a state in the New England region of the United States.

It's just so small...and forgettable

22 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.

Surprised this isn't on the list. When my mom moved to America she didn't even know what Minnesota was.

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

Everyone knows about Virginia and Pennsylvania, and Maryland is just that little state squished between them.

Uh, Washington D.C. is located on Maryland's soil, albeit under a federal jurisdiction.

No one knows where it is

24 Connecticut

I honestly thought this was state was a city when I was a kid.

I live in CT, and I met a person that doesn't even know she's in CT. That's how forgettable we are.

Just a highway from NYC and boston...

Is this state a part of New York?

25 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.
