Top 10 Most Interesting States

The Top Ten

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

I cackled when I saw this. Hawaii is just another tourist trap, in reality. It's corrupt, underdeveloped and not cool at all. It's hot and humid very often, which is sometimes really fatal!

Beautiful, safe, full of wildlife and it feels like Asia, but with the comforts of the U.S.

My parents have been to hawaii and they love it they say it is beautiful and cool my dad and mom have been there for there honeymoon my dad has already been there one time before he got married and my mom has been there for her first time and it is really expensive there and unusual houses but that is what it makes the most recent state the most interesting

It would be relaxing

2 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.

I love Florida, there's so much to do! And agreed, alligators are badass... But how did Indiana even get on the list? It's the most boring place ever, and that is a fact.

Disneyworld and loads of other parks like Seaworld and Universal Studios. Plus there is a ton of alligators there, and alligators are badass.

I live in Florida and sometimes I go to the beach and it's insanely fun, I like to bodysurf and your children (or you, your never too young I say) Can build sand castles, and overall it's cool, just remember "respect the ocean" if you go to far out and your not a really, REALLY good swimmer then the tides might wipe you out.

Yeah sure, Florida is pretty interesting. Daily headlines like "Headless Body Found in Florida Topless Bar" are a common occurrence. If its weird and interesting, it probably happened in Florida.

3 California California is a state in the Southwestern United States. With 39.6 million residents across a total area of about 163,696 square miles (423,970 square kilometers), California is the most populous U.S. state and the third-largest by area. The state capital is Sacramento, and the largest city is Los Angeles. ...read more.

It is my home state and I think it is a great place for every one because there is a huge verity of many different activities for anyone

I love California! There are so many sights to see!

I love California because it has the most palm trees, the most beautiful and the highways. California is great like New York. New York City is large like Los Angeles.

I am a Floridian, and I have to admit California's got more stuff. We might have more theme parks, but all there pretty much is in terms of natural scenery is trees, swamps, and boring expanses of flat land. California has desert, snow capped mountains, beaches, fields, scenic rocky coastlines... Plus, CA has theme parks too, as well as an even stronger tech, entertainment, business, trade, and culture scene than Florida does. It has been the forefront of America for many years.

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

It is where some of the famous presidents lived

There is so much American history in Virginia! - Ajkloth

First of all, it has a lot of history. Second, it's my home state Third, the beach is amazing

History bores me

5 Texas Texas is a state in the Southern USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.

Texas is one of those states with the most interesting histories ever! They were originally a republic!

Texas has been under 6 flags: Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the CSA, and USA. Fascinating history!

And Texas is arguably the most cultured state, with the best BBQ, sports, and Texas-sized state pride, (bigger and better). Texas is extremely religious and Conservative, with pretty much only Austin being the only dominantly liberal city.

The Lone Star States has no state income tax- only on the local and federal level. Texas is business friendly and great for home owners.

Not to mention Texas is the only state to have a power grid that doesn't connect with other states and some of the largest oil reservoirs in the U.S.

Texas has deserts, giant metropolises, beaches, plains and even pine tree forests, giving everyone a place to visit. From Houston to Big Bend, or from the Alamo to the State Fair, the second largest state has a lot to offer.

Interesting? Of course. Look over there, there's a hurricane, and up there we have a blizzard and oh look a few tornadoes. Hope you don't mind those floods.

But seriously, Texas has a lot of interesting history and dozens of unique festivals and cities. We might not have the most original names for the cities, but Bacon and Orange are pretty funny to see on a map.

Just remember to be polite to those guys in the cowboy hats and boots because they almost always have a gun and they don't give warning shots.

I love Texas! It's hot so pack some cool clothes and head down there as soon as you can! It is a great place to go and be! You would love the state fairs and all of the events! Go Texas!

Then it becomes cold without warning. Then floods. After that, though, it's nice to see the sun afterwards. - MKBeast

6 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 ...read more.

New york is awesome

New York is boss

New York is the top best, ti is so awesome there!

7 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.

Best state in the country! Beaches, mountains, cities, beautiful towns, rich history, sail towns, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Cliff Beaches on the Cape, Boston alone...

You go from the wealthiest of the wealthy to blue collar working man towns.

Best state hands down.

Boston has everything! It's just plain nice there, so I would say Massachusetts is pretty good!

I live here, and I see new stuff legit everyday! Its especially amazing going on field trips, because they take you to some cool places (JFK library, Science Museum, Duck Tours, etc). - kaitlynrad11

Knew someone from MA once. From what I knew, it was really interesting. - PositronWildhawk

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

Maryland IS the MOST interesting state

Maryland, you can do it, I can stop Hawaii from being the most interesting state!

Most interesting state as a world record!

Maryland is the King, it is not Hawaii!

9 Vermont

Okay... the history of Vermont is pretty cool. We were the first state after the thirteen colonies and were fought over by New York and New Hampshire. Also REAL MAPLE SYRUP!

Vermont seems like a wonderful people ace to live in

It's the smartest state true fact - Wolfpelt

Vermont = boring times three hundred

10 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.

I am from here and I love it! But I noticed most people were commenting on the features like Grand Canyon, mountains, etc. This is very cool, but also notice that cities in Arizona like Phoenix are absolutely awesome. Most people think of Arizona as an undeveloped desert, but when you get into the city part of it, it is very similar to LA or Chicago just less skyscrapers and slightly smaller.

Wow! I jave lived in Arizona for my whole life! I t is amazing. So much mountains and canyons and deserts. It has a lot of Wild West features like the town of Tombstone. And the Grand Canyon is spectacular. If you have ever been to the Grand Canyon you know what I mean. It is the best of the best. I am so glad Arizona is on this list! It would even be better if it were higher. Another thing is education. Arizona has some of the best education in the US. Awesome, awesome, and awesome. If you are thinking about moving to a different state, Arizona is your best bet. Go AZ!

I hope I like it I will be moving there soon! I have a? Do u usually see snake and big spiders

I live here and there is so much to do and to love in this wonderful state and all my friends that come and visit love this state!

The Contenders

11 South Carolina South Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state is bordered to the north by North Carolina, to the south and west by Georgia across the Savannah River, and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean.

It's amazing here! I've grown up here and I'd say it's the place to be. From our great outdoors to just staying inside to enjoy some country cooking! I love South Carolina

This place is probably one of the best places to go on vacation. There is always something to do in South Carolina. - HauntingStomper

Our state is a great place to go on vacation, and has many historic sites to visit, like fort sumter, the old charleston jail, and etc

It might be cool to see my cousins!

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

Georgia has the kindest people and it has all four regions. Its like a mini country with beaches, mountains, plains, and valleys all in one state. Plus there are big cities and small towns where everyone knows one another and takes care of each other. The house prices are great and the movie industry is growing extremely fast.It is also a great place to have a small business because it is easy to get your name around a small town. You often see movie stars walking around, The Walking Dead is filmed here (in Senoia) and it is a great place to live.

Ga has the great ability of having major cities and then a couple hours away redneck country. It's awesome.

Redneck country? Wow, who could resist seeing a thousand Larry the Cable Guys running around?

Coke is the best!

13 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.

Ah yes, my home state. The lakes are beautiful, the winters can be long but they're fun f you get into skiing or snowmobiling. And there isn't a state with a better summer or fall. Minnesota also has more history than you might think. The north shore of Lake Superior is full of old fur trapping headquarters and Native American forts. The "little house on the prairie", of Laura Ingalls Wilder fame, is near the town of Walnut Grove, and there are historical markers all along the Great River Road, along the Mississippi in the southeast part of the state. Minnesota has also become very diverse racially and elected Keith Ellison, the first ever Muslim member of Congress. We were also the first state to vote against the "marriage is only between a man and a woman" resolution. So we're an historic state already, and becoming more so all the time.

There is a lake every square mile. There are more different fish species in Minnesota than any other state. People are very happy up here. We are used to the cold and can still go to work or school with a foot of snow without a problem. Very safe and the people are very friendly. We do not have very many big cities, which makes it a great place to come if you want to escape the concrete jungle for a while.

Minnesota should be at the top because of the cool sights!

I Live here and I LOVE it!

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

Best state ever!

We have arbys yet we aren't fat. :0

Deleware is the first state. They are home to coasts to the Atlantic Ocean and historic site after historic site! My ancestors imigrated to deleware from Denmark in 1641 but they eventually moved to Indiana. Deleware deserves it's position on the top 20 states list.

15 Alabama Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west.

Alabama is the best, It has all four ecosystems! It is awesome here!

There are so many attractions and so much historical sites in Alabama. The weather is great all year round and we love football!

People who say Alabama sucks. Have obviously never been to Alabama.

Roll tide roll sucks bo

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

Kentucky is very interesting. It has the largest cave in the world, good food, and some great attractions.

I love Kentucky especially Louisville! Beautiful!

WE are bad ass

it sucks

17 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.

We have the only tropical rainforest in the northern hemisphere, plenty of scenic mountains, the emerald city (seattle), and balanced weather (guys it isn't ALWAYS raining)

One of the best for tourist attractions

Beautiful mountains, gorgeous waters. Green and friendly.

We have stuff, I guess. - Cyri

18 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.

Seven presidents came from Ohio, the Wright Brothers, Football Hall of Fame, Cedar Point: the number 1 Amusement Park in the world for 16 years in a row, Kellys Island, Kings Island and so much more! Vote Ohio!

Football hall of fame

Ohio is the best!

Ohio should be even lower, There is nothing to do here

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

Nevada has a city called Las Vegas that is large and has great hotels like planet Hollywood and most of Nevada is covered by dessert but at least is great.

Nevada contains some two of the most naughty and awesome cities to party DOWN! Las Vegas and Reno
Outside those two cities is nothing but endless majestic desert that feels like divine freedom, like you're riding through the old west.
Hands down underrated state.

Vegas is awesome

I've lived in vegas my whole life 33 years, and hands down, the best place to visit,party,bring the kids, you name it we have something for everyone

20 New Hampshire

Democrat one year. Republican the next year. Many independent voters irregardless of their party affiliation. Just over 1 million population and barely growing. - mgenet

N. H, love it.39,000 troops sent in the civil war. I'm a New Hampshirese so I love it here. A lot of things to do here. - samuelbean

Hurry need it now

21 Oregon Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Oregon is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by Washington, on the south by California, on the east by Idaho, and on the southeast by Nevada.

Oregon has many interesting features, including the Oregon Trail

The coast is beautiful!

22 Indiana

I've lived in Indiana for three years, it's boring, it's so boring it makes the small southern country states look intelligent & interesting. Drinking & drugging are the past time, but the senior citizens love their corn fields & their old fashioned racists ways. I can't wait to get out of Indiana.

So, lived in many states, including NW Indiana. Most people who love it, never lived anywhere else. Favorite pastime: Drinking. Why, because there is nothing to do. I love the ocean, fresh seafood and snowcapped mountains. West Coast has it all. The only thing good about NW Indiana is that it's close to Chicago (yes, a different state). Not a fan KKK presents, either. Being partial to the Left Coast, I'm not used to these attitudes. The small towns name their business with K's to show Klan loyalty..Koby's Kuntry Kitchen and Klassy Karl's Kar-shop.
This isn't just a guess, I know this. Indianapolis is where the KKK originated. That said, I love the people have huge families that are very close. That's where all my extended family lives and for that reason, Indiana gets a pass from me!

Honestly, how did Indiana make it on this list? I live in Indiana and let me tell ya, all we have is corn fields. No kidding. Indianapolis is pretty great I guess, but really!? Indiana is really nothing special.

Indiana is such a cool fun place I lived here for years love Indianapolis so many museums and tall buildings I love to go to the zoo and see the Dolphins due flips an cool stuff like that just a really interesting state

23 Michigan

I think that Michigan is one of the most awesome states in the whole USA. Everyone thinks that Michigan is the most bad state in the USA because all of its bad cities like Detroit, Flint and etc. But what people really don't know is how awesome Michigan really is. I was born and raised in Michigan and sometimes I feel like everyone forgets that Michigan is the state that envented the car which is one of the most useful enventions in the world. Plus, Michigan has the great lakes which is 25% of the worlds fresh water storage. I think that people should stop and think twice about how America is so wraped up about Texas, Californa, Florida, and etc. People are really not getting that Michigan is a super tough place to live in and you will only know how to live in it if you were born and raised in Michigan. So that is really why Michigan did not get very high ratings, that people from other places just simpley do not know how to live in Michigan the right way.

Michigan is a unknown gem. Shoot, the Upper Peninsula alone would rank in the top 10. Beaches, rivers, lakes (big and small), wildlife and nice midwestern people make Michigan a special place.

Michigan has a lot of beautiful places but you have the worst governor in history in Snyder. Just ask the people of Flint.

Michigan is amazing and has many beautiful places, you just need to look.

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

According to travelaway.com Montana is the second most beautiful state HA! It should number 1!

25 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.

Used to be the Garden State, now it is the Garbage State. I used to see on the country's notorious land fills from my front steps.

New Jersey has many beautiful spots, like sunfish pond a natural Glacier made lake, Pine Barrens, and much more

Whoa how is it so loow? THE BEACHES YES they're EVEN BETTER THEN SUNNY California'S!
Sorry, Cali, but you know that you're my #2!
What about Florida? Beat it.
Yeah, that's a good reason. What and ever!

26 North Carolina North Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, Virginia to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

28 Louisiana

One of the most interesting places in the world. The food is amazing in Louisiana and New Orleans is one of the most beautiful cities of the US

29 Maine

31 Pennsylvania Pennsylvania, officially the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a state located in the northern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.

Pennsylvania should be number 1 because I live here and pennsylvania is very interesting. In Hershey the street lamps are hershey kisses and if you into the south central part of the state it is amish country which has the best pretzels in the world. This should be number 1!

It's the best place to call home; especially Western PA. Pittsburgh. Love, Love, Love it! People are the friendliest. Come visit us!

Pennsylvania is absolutely a beautiful place to live. It's a very historic sight, and the weather is different all year long. Pennsylvania is definitely the place to be.

The potholes and I-95 make it fun. Also we have stereotypes with chemical apocalypses in the middle of nowhere.

32 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.

I just loved Missouri, I used to be an exchange student in Nixa, and it was so wonderful starting from the awesome summer weather to the excellent mountains and the overall landscape, feels so fresh and the sky is so blue most of the time. Oh and almost forget visit Silver Dollar City it's so cool, although super cold during winter, still enjoyed.

I don't care for rappers or huge cities, but the Ozark Mountains are the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Great road systems, beautiful landscapes, and even though crime is high, the cities aren't entirely too big. Missouri is a very interesting place to live, especially in the mountains. - benhos

racist - elpy

48 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 can Alaska not be interesting? I mean, you do have Sarah Palin but she seems to be spending less and less time there, so Alaska is probably a lot less annoying...

Alaska is pure nature and beauty. Fishing, parties, snow fun, nice summers, most beautiful scenery out of all 50 states. Nicest people and small friendly towns

I'm gonna do a project on this.

I'm going to do my Tate project so hopefully it is an interesting state! :-)
