Most Useless States in the U.S.A.preachinpreach These are the states that we don't really care about. Which one would you not miss if it vanished?
The Top Ten
Nothing to do, racism galore, bad school systems everywhere, poverty everywhere, no theme parks, NOTHING. There's no real reason to live here unless you're STUCK here.
When driving through this state my 3 year old looked out the window and asked my wife "Mom, when do we get back to America? "
Well, due to all the racism and boredom that The U.S. only has in the state of Mississippi, I think he knew exactly what he was doing. - SpectralOwl
I'm just living here because I'm with the Navy, otherwise I would have never come here. This place has absolutely nothing going for it. The locals seem friendly at first but judge you for your accent or just for being from somewhere else. People are so ignorant that at night I feel dumb from having conversations with locals throughout the day. Just the way people think here is like a throwback to another era. They think their state is so awesome just because its insanely hot and humid in the summer, unlike the colder states up north that get snow in the winter. Its no joke that MS is absolutely dead last in everything and it shows. I'm so happy that I only have another month of living here and it can't come soon enough. If you don't like swimming in brown water, hunting, guns, crawfish, country music, huge trucks, racial disputes, and more guns then stay away from this dreadful place, otherwise if you don't do/own any of the above mentioned items, people WILL judge you!
I live here & I'm trying to get out of this redneck dungeon! We often see a naked kid by our business playing in the kiddie pool in their front lawn. There is a man who lives in his van at McDonald's. Every vehicle on the road is an old beat down Chevy or Ford. There are crazy people throwing rocks at people's cars, dancing with a boombox in the middle of the street, and running naked in the downtown areas. Where I live is one of the NICER areas in Mississippi! I am not joking about any of this. Mississippi sucks so bad it makes Iraq look like Disney World.V 153 Comments
Wyoming is by far the most peaceful state you don't see bad things happening on the news in wyoming. If you want to not live in a peaceful place and have your kids to be safe then wyoming is the place for you.
Wyoming is very interesting. The vast deserts and history. The first national park to ever be established in the world is there- Yellowstone National Park. Sound familiar? Come, people! We are the United States! We are one! We work together, hand in hand, state by state, and help each other. No state is pointless, they are all wonderful in there own way. Whomever made this list has lost their patriotism. - LostDream258
Wyoming was created to serve as a buffer between a Yellowstone eruption and places that actually matter.

Cali is not at all a useless state! I am 11 and I can name 5 things why not. #1 we have weather from warm tropical beaches in san diego to powder like snow in Alpine county. #2 We are home to 5 MLB teams, 2 NHL teams, 4 NBA teams and 3 MLS teams. #3 Green Day (one of my favorite. Bands ) came from California. #4 Ever wonder where most of your fruits and veggies are grown from the U. S? California! #5 we are the 3rd biggest state in the U.S. why may I ask why is a state good enough to have songs about it called useless? Its not!
How is California useless? It is the most populated state, has San Francisco and Los Angeles, Hollywood, Disneyland, and Universal Studios, 5 MLB teams, 3 NFL teams, 4 NBA teams, and 2 NHL teams. We're famous for our hot babes, amazing beaches, and great weather.
They have 3 nhl teams (sharks, Kings, and ducks.) Just to let you know. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL
California has a huge part in the US. If you're looking for snowflakes, there's plenty in Mississippi and Alabama, if there is one thing they are good at, its keeping everyone racist in those states.
Cali would be a wonderful state, if they could figure out how freedom works and how communistic policies are the main driver for most of their problems.V 157 Comments

Arkansas is the most important because 80 percent of the worlds diamonds come from Arkansas
I have lived here, it is amazing! Best schools, true kindness, and people who know how to have a good time! You people who don't live in Arkansas and think it's bad, you have no clue what you are talking about! We are NOT all hillbillies with missing teeth, I have all my teeth, and no cavities. So you should come visit Arkansas! Bentonville, Fayetteville, Little Rock, anywhere in Arkansas is amazing! We have cities, we are not complete boredom! Even what you consider a 'fun state' can still be boring in some parts.
Living here and not wanting to. It amazes me how people inside of Arkansas literally have *no clue* as to the beauty of the world OUTSIDE of Arkansas. They talk about their tree-clad hills and obscured "viewpoints" (and these are basically elevated rest stops overlooking freeways - I kid you not) like it's the eleventh wonder of the natural world. Give me a break. It really is true that people love what they know - because if you dumped some hick from around here in the Colorado Rockies or showed them the Tetons up close they'd probably think they had died and gone to "heaven".
Oh - and the other thing? Dumbass-ness. This state has some of the most illiterate NORMAL PEOPLE I've ever seen. I don't count rednecks because all rednecks are dumb. Unfortunately, in Arkansas there is a baseline level of stupidity and ignorance for the English language that actually pervades EVERYWHERE and EVERYTHING. I mean, I'm talking mis-spelled roadsigns, mis-spelled notices, mis-spelled LED ...more
I love how everyone is insulting West Virginia's incest rates when North Dakota has at least TWICE as much inbreeding.
North Dakota is cheeks.

I mean we could easily sell this state off to Canada and even Canada wouldn't notice. They'd wonder why their annual budget is -$5.00 (CDN, of course)
Look on Google streetview at Bismarck. It's reminiscent of a small unincorporated live-in community you'd see within 30 miles of some major city elsewhere.

Horrible place to live. Omaha isn't bad, more normal people there, but the south central section is full of inconsiderate, ignorant, entitled, 'good old boys'. I'd rather put up with the idiocy of a hipster kid any day over a farmer; at least the hipster may recommend a good band as payment for putting up with him/her. They try to behave as spoiled brat bullies, but quickly back down if you call them on their bs (people here seem to have a major fear of their own mortality). This for sure isn't all of the population, but you'll meet about 1 normal person for every 100 you encounter (could be more or less depending on your path of travel), but considering that the population of many of these tiny towns is low, that doesn't leave a lot worth conversing with. Remember, if a farmer starts in with that I deserve respect and subservience from you because 'farmers feed the world' bs, remind them that they were paid for their work and you owe them nothing.
I mean from the outside it might seem pretty useless but growing up here and looking out at everything else, it really seems like we are one of the most USEFUL states. Like we produce A LOT of food that goes out to the rest of the country, yea we ain't the only ones but we are one of the few. Though it ain't the hot spot for tourism I can tell you that.
Yikes, mine is in the top 20! Actually, this is kind of a pointless list. Anyone who votes another state as "Useless" has obviously never been there. No, I haven't seen Nebraska, but remember, every state has a culture, a heritage, a people, a history. How can any state, then be useless?
By being boring and... Useless. It's all a matter of perspective really. I think Nebraska is boring as hell, and yet you don't. Who's right?

Drive through Kansas on I-70. That is all I need to say.
I was born in Kansas but raised mostly I'm southern California. However I use to go back to Kansas every summer and have unfortunately been there in the Winter. Kansas has hot humid sunmers almost as bad a Florida. I went to Cuba two times and felt like I was in Kansas in the summer with all the humidity. Then comes the Winter early in Kansas and you freeze your buns off. Not to mention the mosquitos which are like a plague. Oh and the tornadoes and even earthquakes now.
Did anyone ever really want Kansas?

This is just virginia who was to childish to get over harsh labor buncha pussies, damn yanks
I live here in West Virginia.. This has to be the most useless toxic wasteland anyone can live in.. I would rather live in Siberia at least there people have a sense of pride. Nothing here but trees as far as the eye can see.. Nothing to do.. So many overweight individuals living here that don't care about their health.. No jobs here poorest economy.. Cold frigid winters and horrid hot summers... Not to mention when you tell people you're from here they assume you're a hillbilly with no sense, no teeth and no interest in a civilized environment... THIS IS THE WORST STATE TO LIVE IN... It is a wasteland
West virginia may not be the best place to look for a job or raise kids but at least they aren't stuck up like all of the kids who are raised in the city whose parents never taught them how to care for anyone else but themselves.

Wow... there is so much to do in montana it's a great state
I always joke about Wyoming being the most forgotten state, but then I was looking up something where Montana was mentioned. I paused for a second and said to myself, "Oh. That state exists. "
Now I know why I never got a perfect on that "remember all 50 states and their capitols" test I took in fifth grade...
I'm still living here... OH GOD GET ME OUT! The kids here are stuck up and they seem like they haven't learned anything. I'm RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF BIBLE BELT. I believe in God and everything, but I don't go to church. My sister doesn't even believe in church, we both very much hate it here. Oh it's the second fattest state. Oh and every time Christmas comes, I am SO glad because we go to Ohio and Tennessee to visit our relatives. There isn't a beach, just an icky lake, and my whole family wants to get out of here, it's so boring. I just learned today that the south had a high rank of slaves back then, but the north didn't have about any slaves; The Underground Railroad. Look it up. Y'all and ain't are not really contractions rednecks. Please, SOMEONE GET ME OUT OF HERE! Oh and country music REALLY gives me a headache.
When I moved here from LA I thought things would be a lot better. Dead mistake. I hated LA for many reasons, mainly because of the extreme heat and dryness. It's definitely better here in AL when it comes to weather in my opinion, and the nature is beautiful, but that's it. This place is EXTREMELY boring. There's absolutely nothing to do. I'm a 34 year old free-spirited Brazilian girl, and all I see here is women having a bunch of kinds and spending their time doing housework. Segregation is nasty. I quit two jobs because of racism. And guess what, I'm white! Some black girls were really mean to me and, being someone who doesn't take it, that didn't work out. I think it's because so many white people hate black people here, so they just assumed I was the same?! Hello, I'm Brazilian, and we don't care about this skin color crap there! And there's the other side of the coin. I went to workout in a place where everybody was white AND rich, and those girls simply ...more
Ignorant rednecks, blistering heat, and not a decent view in site. I have lived in Alabama for 20 years, and can honestly say this place is my personal hell. The school system is a joke, improper grammar is the standard, and if you have an opinion that is even SLIGHTLY out of the box, you might as well be a terrorist. Alabama blows.

Personally, Hawaii looks like a beautiful place but it should be it's own country.
The tourist state. Useless politics, trying to get rid of airplanes, essentially trying to cut themselves off from the mainland. How would all the tourists get there? Swim? Boats?
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to go to Hawaii. But is should be more like a territory instead of a state.
7/10 Too much water. In all seriousness it's just a bunch of islands with active volcanos. Sure the scenery is nice but volcanos are dangerous.
Why is Hawaii on the list? It's GREAT. Good food, lovely beaches, amazing sunsets, and amazing people. There's also pieces of history here and there because of World War 2. Overall, the cities have a wonderful mix of city and countryside. And before you call it useless, wouldn't 49 states not make sense? 50 sounds better. Don't forget they produced Obama.
None of what you mentioned contributes anything to the US on a large scale or important scale. Compared to many other states they do nothing to our country except act as an overrated tourist destination. - NapoleonBonaparteV 17 Comments
I was born and raised in New Jersey. I have since relocated to Texas for work. To be honest, NJ isn't a terrible place. But the fact that it's filled with the most rude, arrogant, self centered people I've ever met ruins it for me. Everyone is so cocky too, acting like NJ is better than everywhere else. Why? Why is it so much better than everywhere else? You guys are worse than Texans (which I can understand, I do like it here in Texas). Property taxes are through the roof, the traffic is a nightmare, Chris Christie has pretty much ransacked the place, you have to pay to use the beach, Atlantic City is a hole in the ground... Heck, you guys are too lazy to even pump your own gas. It's so much better just to do it yourself. God dangit.
Don't get me wrong, NJ is a decent place, I just don't think it's as great as everyone claims it is. Get off your high horses, people.
Seriously? I am from Philly and I LOVE NJ! There are the beaches and boardwalks, there is Six Flags, and we get our produce from here!
A law in Jersey doesn't allow people to pump their own gas - only station attendants pump gas. The state animal is the HORSE. The Jersey Shore is beautiful, summer and winter (live there a few years instead of going there on weekends - big difference). Parts of Jersey are beautiful, parts are not. Jersey milk is some of best in the US - California and New Mexico are the others. Drinking water in Jersey is top quality - and safe. NO state today is as good as it was 30 years ago, not even the US. Bayonne has Muslims now. Jersey City is a sanctuary city. Spend a little time in Wisconsin as I am doing and you will WISH you were back in Jersey! NOTHING here is any good. No vehicle inspection, rusty/broken cars all over the place, DUIs are a sport, everyone smokes, everyone's fat, bad roads, BAD water, bad land, UNFRIENDLY humorless, uneducated people, poor schools, corrupt police departments, filth, poverty, female doctors and female vets, socialized medicine, and so on.

NEW JERSEY IS AWESOME! I lived here my whole life and there was never even 1 single thing wrong about it! It shouldn't be here! Although, every state has a bad thing about it.

Why the hell would you say Alaska!? It has more oil than all of Russia. The US and Oil is like Cookie Monster and Cookies1
Alaska is the LEAST useless state. We provide more coats then all other states COMBINED. We have 17/20 of the biggest mountain peaks in the country. We have the biggest peak on the continent. We are the least crowded state. We are the darkest state, as well as the brightest! We have oil,gas,fish,crabs,produce and much more! We are independent people. We survive earthquakes all the time. We are smart. We have the most land. We have millions of lakes, and the most beautifully created skies!

Idaho is an agriculture state... I'd also like to clarify that there are no "wannabe cowboys" in Idaho's high schools, but there are a lot of fake people in Idaho.
I lived all my life in Idaho and is NOT useless. Here are 4 examples,
1: We have a super rare gem here that is only found in Idaho and India
2: We have the deepest river gorge (Hells Canyon 7,993 ft deep)
3: We have this weird but cool bed-in-breakfast shaped like a beagle
4: Napoleon Dynamite was filmed in Idaho
Look at the license plate, FAMOUS POTATOES. How is this state relevant?
I've lived here my entire life and can tell you if you want to have a good time in Idaho you'd better have one good imagination or wifi. plus its full of fake people who want to be cowboys if you don't believe me go visit a high school in Idaho and then try and prove me wrong.V 15 Comments
America is just trying to rip off Mexico by putting this wasteland garbage called "New Mexico"
It sucks. Boring as hell, hot as hell, corrupt as hell, dusty as hell. The only good thing here is the 9 to 5 people, they are great. Beware of businesses here, they are swindlers. Public transportation here is a joke. Traffic pattern here sucks. Drivers are the worst I have ever seen. Traffic accidents and deaths galore.
Let me tell you The story of A guy who was in a corner of his moms basement, hates sauerkraut. So he moves to Albuquerque, his plane crashes and he drags himself the hotel, rents a hotel room, then has a guy that looks like Mike Score from Flock Of Seagulls break into the apartment, steal his favorite snorkel, then they have a little sing off with the operator. He then vowed to get his snorkel back, after that he is trying to get a doughnut and instead gets a box of face eating weasels, witch lead him to find his girl friend and future waifu, who then goes and buys a house, has two kids, then breaks up with him. He then gets a job and puts out a fire with his face, every one is jealous and he ends up cutting a guys arms and legs off, and in the end all this happened cause he hates sauerkraut - AlbertAngrySami
New Mexico is an empty landscape in the east side, some boring-than-most cities in the middle, and more nothing on the west side. And the worst thing is that you are basically sitting in/right on the side of the desert while there is still rain/hail.

Cubs, The Sucks, Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Fire, everyother action movie is filmed at lest partly here. No Illinois is not useless. Coal, corn, soy
As an Illinois resident I say that Chicago is nice (although it has one of the highest crime rates in the country) but 99.6% of the state is a useless wasteland filled with corn and soybeans and people who think that cash is more important than democracy. It literally falls flat when it comes to geography and is not very fun to drive through, especially after you have paid for the entire Interstate Highway System in tolls. Thanks, Obama (who I might mention is from Illinois). And it currently has no budget because the state government sucks.
The new state motto 'Corruption is us'! A government that couldn't balance the flat side of a brick on it's own flat ground let alone a budget. I have lived here for 26 years (5 states previously) and will unfortunately stay here until I retire in another 3 or 4 years. I will then leave this state to never return and never say anything good about it. A total example of what a state government and judicial system should NOT be. Yes, I hate the state of Illinois.V 16 Comments
Living in the southwestern corner of the state, it's a wasteland. Any nice pictures you see are from a couple places and they are not the west side of the state. Water is horrible. If you don't have allergies before coming here, you will. Cotton is defoliated every year, no telling what that does to people. Rattlesnakes and spiders everywhere. The grammar comment in the new below is spot on. Our local paper looks like a grade schooler wrote it. I have to drive an hour to shop and then fear for my life because Lawton is trying to be like Compton, CA. Still paying for turnpikes that are not kept up. Finally on the negative, nobody knows how to set traffic lights in this state; it will make you pull your hair out stopping for no reason. A couple positives to be fair. Route 66 is cool to do, OKC does have a Dave and Busters and Tulsa has a Hard Rock. Oh yeah, plenty of casinos if you only care about entertainment value and don't mind getting ripped off. Not sure who's getting that money ...more
If you're an adventurist, you WILL become bored very fast. Do not let a couple of narrow-minded jerks ruin your visit/stay. There is NOTHING to do in this place at all! It's very pointless coming here! I'm tired of the same old crappy, racist people living in Oklahoma! They are always harsh and judgemental on you!
There's plenty of things to do in Oklahoma once you get off the internet. - BrideiMacBella
I'm Asian American and had to live here for two years because of a job. OKC to be exact. I came here with a positive outlook believing in the saying that Okies are friendly. Luckily, it's a bit more diverse in OKC because it's their "major city". I encountered some good folks, but the majority were ignorant, racist, and stupid. These racist folks wouldn't flat out use any racial slurs, but their behavior/attitude toward me explained it all.
I know there are good and bad people everywhere, but the bad encounters here outweighed the good. The racist folks made life extremely miserable for me during my two years here. I was glad to leave after these two years when I found work back on the West Coast. I can only imagine how much worse it'd be had I lived in a small town of OK.
Oklahoma... The end result of a science experiment gone horribly wrong.
Seriously, what more can you say? Need proof to justify the US government dropping a nuclear weapon over Oklahoma? Read the comments on the local news sites... Or try to read them, the garbled mess of letters and out of place punctuation make it almost impossible.
I think that New York shouldn't be on here either. It's the most popular state in the USA, along with California. I do want to see New York but it may be pretty unsafe at times. I've heard that it has a lot of tourist attractions like Yellowstone Nationals Park. We have kind of learnt different USA states in Primary School before so I kind of know about what tourist attractions that some of the states may have.

First of all, 3 counties and 1 area code is not a state. It's nothing. Actual nothing. Second, their greatest sports team is the Blue Rocks. Who cares about the Blue Rocks? Seriously, a team named after a color and a rock. Third, Newark and Wilmington are like the only two cities and I'm 99% sure this so-called capital "Dover" doesn't exist. The only thing going for this state is the fact that it was the first state to sign the Constitution, something that happened 225 years ago and nobody cares about anymore. The whole no sales tax thing is just a pathetic attempt to get people to live here and is the ONLY reason people live here. The only noteworthy people to come out of this state are a crazy vice president, an obese governor (there's a reason he immediately moved back to NJ), and an average quarterback that somehow got named MVP this season.

Nothing here. More pigs than people. People say the crime rate is low but it's not! Not per capita. Iowa is on the national news for crime a lot. I live in Des Moines 3 years now and there are homicides from shootings a lot. Lots of cornfields for bodies. no one visits Iowa "for fun". Cost of living is lower than anywhere else.
Iowa is great you're all just mean
I like how you guys say that it is super boring, well that is not the question. It ask what is the most useless state within the US. Not which is the most fun.

North Carolina is stunning. Nicholas sparks writes all about North Carolina and the beauty here. The school system is one of the best in the south. We have great cities, mountains, beaches and the outer banks! It's not a redneck state unlike the other southern states.

I live in sc and its awful there's NOTHING to do if you want to do anything you have go go out of state. The people are trashy and rude. Terrible education system. No public transportation whatsoever and way too much violence I don't know why anybody would want to come here there's nothing that makes this state special
Carolinian here. Charleston is what saves this State from being #1 on the list for most useless. But with the exception of Charleston, this state truly is awful. The entire land of this State is just ugly. I feel like locals are completely ignorant to what they're missing out on by living in South Carolina, they just think their State is the best because of Charleston. They don't know what a beautiful landscape is like. They don't know what a nice small quaint town is like either. The education is also one of the worst here. Definitely one of the worst States you could possibly live in.
This state should be second on the list. I've been here all my life and I haven't seen anything exciting happen here. This is more of a retirement state so you won't see many children. Plus, it's HARD to get jobs here! The economy's so bad. Education here sucks. Even the private schools that garentee to get your kids in college don't teach well. It's no different than a public school except uniforms. The crime rate is also oh so high! And SC is one of the top ten states with people living in trailers, in other words, it's trailer trash for South Carolinians. Not to be negative, but the truth hurts.V 10 Comments

But the big cities, Especially Columbia and St. Louis are not very good.

A backward place with horrible weather. I grew up there and it was bad then; after visiting last year it seems to have gotten worse, more conservative and knuckle dragging.

Vermont is incredibly boring, the population is tightly divided into 2 distinct groups. Very wealthy college kids, property owners and people moving here to "get away", and then redneck scumbags who move large amounts of heroine and pills. Vermont has nothing special, nothing fun, but its very stuck up it's own ass and full of itself. A super expensive place to live, Vermont is also full to the brim with narrow minded wannabe hipsters who fail to see anything other then the way they want it. Money gets poured into the states 1 or 2 only cities that don't look like a crack shack, making these places extremely expensive to live, while everywhere else in Vermont looks like a dump, or a set of a horror movie. Add to this terrible roads, obnoxious in your face health awareness, terrible music, and scummy drugs, and you have one the worst States in the US no doubt.
WHY IS THIS ON THE LIST? It may not have many stores, but it has a great community to live in. The schools are great, and it has one of the nicest people you'll meet. Why would someone put this on the list because lack of stores? The people who said this stuff are true idiots. Live in this place and you'll know why.
This is the only state without a Target store, AND it only has four Walmart's. There's not even a McDonald's in the city limits of its own capital city! Vermont is DEFINITELY the most useless state.
Of all the states I've been to. This one was the most boring. Sure it has the scenery and the skiing (which has in my opinion is the best skiing in east of Colorado) it has nothing. Skiing isn't enough to make it not boring.V 15 Comments
That's where my dad lives (I live in Texas with my mom) it's not that bad just the people there, though I've only been there once since my dad mostly comes to visit us in Texas. But when I stayed in Maryland with him for a month I was a so scared because within that month more than 5 crimes appeared on the news including a death of a child. - Luckys
We have crabs, we have the Chesapeake Bay, we have jousting and lacrosse, we have a good education system. We are a very useful state, although not the best, we are a good state. We are a beautiful state and have a lot of attractions, trust me. It's worth coming here.
Why is Maryland on here? I love this state, and I lived there all my life.
The flag is great and beautiful! Maryland is NOT useless!
But Massachusetts and New York are useless!
I love the state I live in.
A great state surrounded on all sides by clear water and mostly clean air, especially the Upper peninsula - a hidden treasure!
I bet none of you have actually ever been here. It has great cities like Grand Rapids and Traverse City. Yes, Detroit is struggling but the people actually have a lot of pride and if you get to know them they aren't selfish or rude. Also, all of you who say there is nothing to do go to places like Mackinac Island, Isle Royale, Pictured Rocks, and more. Another thing is that if you like hiking and kayaking this is a good place for you. The cold wether may need some getting used to though. Also, this is a useless state list we provide close to the most freshwater, as well as thriving car companies. There is no useless state and I know I made that comment on Nebraska but it still does have a history and lots of corn which helps lots of food companies. I've lived here all my life and I would never give it up - IAmADuckQuack
This place is horrible. Sorry, but it is. I have lived there for 5 years, and it was the worst 5 years of my life. The snow is nothing but grey-colored, mushy, almost-liquid-but-not-quite sludge. The crime rate is atrocious. Everything looks ghetto in Michigan, and the sports teams are horrible. I have been to Detroit, and it is terrible. The architecture is ugly and most of the cars are Fords because "go Motor City". The summers are really humid, meaning if you go in the shade, YOU WILL NOT COOL OFF. Definitely not worth living in. - TornadocracyV 17 Comments
I've lived here all my life, in Memphis, but I've been all over TN multiple times. Tennessee is an extraordinarily beautiful state, full of towering mountains whose sides are covered by an expansion of exquisite green foliage. Not to mention the BBQ in Memphis and the large variety of GOOD music you can find all over.
Rocky Top you'll always be, home sweet home to me, good old Rocky Top, Rocky Top Tennessee
Lower the crime rate and it would be all good
I disagree. I live in knoxville and myself and everyone else I know absolutely loves it here. You got some problems man. Tennessee is diserving of 46V 5 Comments
I'm sorry but I've lived here (Indianapolis) for a while and to be honest (everyone else who lives here agrees) this place is boring as hell. There's nothing to do here and nothing geographically special about it that makes it interesting. The only reason people know about this place is because of the 500 and the Colts (occasionally the pacers). There's really no noticeable culture here other than that of a Midwestern city in the middle of nowhere. That's another thing too- we're surrounded by cornfields upon cornfields in all directions except when you start to go south of Indy. Then when you're down there it's nothing but a hilly, rural area with maybe some medium-small sized hick towns here and there. May I add that the reason we are currently #28 on the list is because nobody thought to vote us because we are nothing special at all. The sense of "community" here is overrated too. The only thing holding people together here is the Colts and knowing that we're stuck in ...more
I Agree, Indiana Is Pretty Boring. But Hey, We Brought The King Of Pop, Michael Jackson, Didn't We? - RandomInspector123
Flatland. Kind of like Illinois except has Indianapolis instead of Chicago and is more racist (see Pence).
I agree with the other dude, here in Indy, or Indiana, it's really boring. And I think it is hilarious that some people with a sense of humor are trying to get California to win because they have beaches, we don't (except in Gary, which isn't a nice place) they have nice weather, we have horrid winters and blazing summers, and there isn't crap to do, so Literally half the people go to Florida on spring break, and that's just because California costs more!
I was born in Indiana! It sucked. The weather changed every 15 minutes, and I was constantly sneezing. It was a wonder I didn't die since your heart stops for about 2 milliseconds when you sneeze. Anyway, the only interesting thing about it is that it's the "Limestone Capital of the World", according to my mom. There, being bored out of your mind is an acceptable career. - MerililleV 38 Comments
I LOVE IT HERE!
The Hell? Louisiana is one of America's most interesting states! Doesn't deserve to be on the list, much less in the top 10!
WHAT? Louisiana is not useless. We're the most interesting state with our gator swamps, Mardi Gras, New Orleans, the architecture, our music scene (we are the birthplace of jazz! ) the historic neighborhoods in NOLA, our food... I fail to understand how North Dakota is more 'useful' than LA.
Louisiana is not irrelevant at all, it has rich history that French, African, Haitian, and Spanish people can relate to. Its religious (nothing wrong with that in my opinion) Jazz, Rap, and Bounce Music is nothing new here. Also if you live in the hood of New Orleans there's never a dull moment. A lot of states are boring and irrelevant and Louisiana is not one.V 32 Comments
Honestly, people, why do you hate us? I live here, and obviously, most of you have never visited this place! We have the greatest snow on Earth and if you live in a place like Payson, West Mountain, or Eagle Mountain, you'll live near some really nice people! People say it's really dry, and it has nothing, but look at some images of our mountains, our forests, and even our deserts! And the Arches and other places like that! This is not man-made! This is Mother Nature's masterpiece. Just come over to our state just once and take a nice hike! Smell all the fresh air, and you'll change your mind about the "dry 'nothing! '" And, of course, the "Mormons." Why does everyone hate on all of us? We have our religious beliefs, and you have yours, people! Have you ever watched a video, or even a movie, listened to a lesson, and got really emotional? I've cried over this stuff before (probably because I'm a light-hearted person, but STILL! ), and it makes me just love Jesus so much because, at ...more - RetroDestruction

I have lived in South Dakota as a single male and it was the worst 3 years of my life. All I dreamed about everyday was getting out and going elsewhere, anywhere, I was dreaming of moving to Wyoming or Montana to at least give me a change of scenery form corn fields and open plains. The girls... don't even get me started... It's like if you weren't a wannabe cowboy hillbilly douche bag like 90% of the state that pretends they are from the south and belts Southern Country music all the time then you were seen as weird. The people are bland. No one is outgoing. You try to say hi to someone walking down the street or strike up a conversation and the mumble under their breath stare at the pavement and shuffle away. And if you are from the south (as I am) you aren't welcome. You're different, weird, to loud, to outgoing, and an outcast. It's a state of self-obsessed, sheltered, white, socially-awkward, narrow-minded, spoiled, wannabee cowboys. Who think where they live is the greatest ...more
This state has one of the worst places for jobs and girls. The school system poisons all. They are low paying jobs EVERYWHERE. Girls like stuff like trucks, trucks are boring! No clubs to meet new people either because all the cities are too small. The driving age is too low and it skews the guy to girl ratio 3-1. This state is summed up as an 18 year prison sentence before you can move the hell out and meet anyone. Who the hell would work full time and be single here? No wonder most of our tax dollars are trying to support all the single men in South Dakota.
South Dakota is a poor excuse of a state. It costs the United States more money to have South Dakota as a state than South Dakota makes worth. They should be considered a territory still...
Everyone saying South Dakota is an awful place...they are 100% correct. The corruption level's are through the roof, that includes state and local level. There is absolutely nothing to do here unless you're a heavy drinker,plenty of low class bars. Winter's reach temperatures of 30 degrees below 0 and that is WITHOUT windchill. People are very close minded and most are so highly uneducated and uncultured, ignorant backwoods hicks. If you ever think of moving here, PLEASE DO NOT. You will truly regret it.V 15 Comments
New Hampshire is great.. where I live there is no violence it is peaceful and nice

Minnesota, I've always liked living here and by far my favorite state. I'm only thirteen so I'm not going to make insane claims but I think the people almost always nice and we don't have the nicest weather (only three months of guaranteed nice weather maybe four). There are still a lot of dumb people lots of feminist and extreme over the top democrats and republicans but, makes for all that I think is the wilderness its always fun to hike, fish and/or hunt.
There's a stench that cones from this horrible land, a land of failed and broken dreams.
Screw everyone who says Minnesota sucks! Minnesota is the red white and blue state, and also the state nobody seems to care about because they're offended by how cool we are. I am a Minnesotan, and this is the coolest state ever! I haven't gone much in the world, and I don't know much, but if I do know something, it's that Minnesota is awesome. Sure, we're not exactly the king of resources and stuff, but unlike most of the U.S. states, we're pretty safe. We don't have a big population, and I love that. I hate going to big cities and stuff. MINNESOTA FOREEVVVERRR
You're all a bunch of Southerner's. Suggestion: Please go back to Texas and Florida while we sit in summer clothes in what they call "cold" weather, while down in your states, you're wearing winter jacket's in 70 and 60 degree weather, in which in that weather, we're starting sports. You guys have to be in 90 degree weather all the time to survive pretty much, so stop complaining about Minnesota, and when you hear Minnesota, don't respond with a "Burr! " or a "Ew, terrible state! " because you should try staying in my Minnesota once. Minnesota is the coolest! Cold weather is the best!V 36 Comments
Texas is easily one of the worst states. A good portion of people are racist to people from other countries and even others states of the US
However the main reason I voted for texas is rattlesnake roundups
What are rattlesnake roundups?
They are mass murder events where texans participate in execution of thousands of innocent Western Diamond Back rattlesnakes as well as a few other species of snakes too. They use petroleum to lure the snakes out of their dens which harms the snakes and any other animals that are also living in that den (yes plenty of lizards and small mammals live with snakes). Then they keep the snake for many months with barely any food or water and after that they place them in a den all confused to be executed unhumanely.
Not only is this cruel and disgraceful but is unnesacary. Rattlesnakes are extremely nice compared to more aggressive species and also the fact that rattlesnakes have a rattle which WARNS you, here in australia snakes wont ...more
Racists and hillbillies galore. - KalloFox34
No its poor and dangerous there's crime bombs and war don't go
LOL you must have been in Afghanistan buddy because Texas is the best place in the entire world to live. No bombs, little crime, NO state taxes on the working class. Good roads, schools, and employment is easy. Not to mention how incredibly safe it is. I don't think there has ever been a school shooting in Dallas. There was one shooting but that man was a psychopath and that could've happened anywhere. - TooDumbtoDie
Lol my states isn't even in the top 40V 41 Comments
Isn't Kentucky where the most famous Creationist Museum and Noah's ark is lol.
I have seen pictures of the Creationist museum and it looks a bit creepy to be a museum.
What is here
In my travels thus far, Kentucky isn't the worst or even close to the worst. However, it majorly depends on what city your in, and also the kind of landscapes you are into. Owensboro is a nice compromise of land and city. I live within walking distance of 2 high schools, a library, a rite aid, IGA, dollar store, park, and if you're pushing it a downtown area. It's not exactly kid or teen friendly, although it's improving with renovations like new parks (skate, playgrounds, etc). I recently just took a trip to Florida and passed through Alabama and oh. My. Automotive galore and I actually had a real life person tell me "Y'all have a good day now, ya hear." Kentucky really isn't horrible, if you can get past the racists old men. The teenagers listen to gangster rap one minute, though, and the next is a country ballad, so it's a hit or miss.
Turn signals people, USE THEM! Also, turn on your lights when it's raining. Also, try to get that carpet cleaned and awful pee smell out of your apartment. Bottom line as in every state. MOVE to the city people and away from poverty, there you will only find rich farmers & mostly idiots!V 17 Comments
It is awesome I live in North Florida but it is so easy to go to Panama city to the beach or Orlando to Universal or Disney plus winter is awesome no snow and we never really have that much damage except for Hurricane Michael which really sucks but I am so close to Alabama and Georgia too so we visit a lot of places and get to see a lot of beautiful weather in Florida
It's the redneck version of California! - afeldman21
They account for the world orange production and it doesn't get most of the natural disasters you northerners fear. I love Florida.

How is this the least useless? Ohio should be hereV 29 Comments
I voted to comment. I come from Ohio, and it's amazing here. There's amazing education, people... The plane was invented here, presidents were born here, inventors were born here, stores were invented here... Yes, people can cuss from time to time, but the state is not useless at all.
This is the worst state ever
Look I was born in ohio and its AMAZING king island,great wolf lodge and wayy more! this is one of the best sates in the USA
Ohio is a state of undiscovered virtues in which many uneducated people do not realize. Where was the airplane invented? Dayton Ohio in 1903 (Wright Brothers). Where did 7 presidents come from? That's right, Ohio. Where did the most inventors come from in the United States. Yup you've guessed it, Ohio. Also, our infrastructure is rated # 7 in the country, and our education is ranked # 4 in the country. Large companies originated in Ohio such as, US Oil, AEP, Cleveland Clinic, Goodyear, Progressive, State farm, Nationwide, Smuckers, Macy's, Wendy's, and Sherwin Williams just to name a few.V 34 Comments
Maine is rightful Massachusetts clay.
Maine is the best place in the world. It's not an industrialized state. Instead, we can look at the natural beauty of something. Sure, there aren't many people, but the people are kind and the land is green.
This state is so forgettable that I missed it my first time through the list. Which is sad because I live here. The people are hard working, but all of our educated youth leave because there are no jobs in the state. Our 'cities' are small towns by all other standards. It has some cool history, but no more so then any other state. Has signs that literally say "Welcome Canadians" year round. UK and USA nearly fought a war over Maine, Maine had to mobilize a militia because the federal government couldn't be bothered to send troops. Almost fought a war, as in it was resolved because both sides realized there wasn't any point to territory in Maine.
Oh how interesting, trees... and nothing but trees, I'll be honest I love nature but Maine is too much nature and not enough of anything else. Which is why I prefer Michigan, It has more than just trees.V 10 Comments
There is pretty much no action and its never involved. For instance, Texas has a motto.. Go big or go home and California has celebs and famous people. Also, Florida is very beautiful and Wisconsin is very famous for their cheese. We just have plain farmland. In Philly, everyone has a rude greeting towards others. The only famous people we have are youtubers Niki and Gabi. that's LITERALLY it.
Born and live in Philadelphia. The Philadelphia area is nice, and I've heard Pittsburgh isn't bad, although I can't say that myself because I've never been there. Some places in the Poconoes are kinda fun. But outside of all that? Boring as hell. It's all farmland or deserted towns. And my mom lives in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia (Bala Cynwyd, like anyone would know where that is). It's hard to be middle class right in that area, because pretty much everyone is rich. I only know two other kids and myself who don't have a lot of money and go to school there, and we're outcasts, because if you don't have lots of money, then you're just not cool. And my dad has a bad road rage temper, and gets into road rage fights with other people all. The. Time. I feel like a lot of people here can't drive very well. Being only eleven, I can't wait to get out of here! I'm going somewhere in NYC, probably Manhattan or Brooklyn. Do yourself a favor and avoid this state.
Lived here all my life and is boring Pittsburgh is ok but the suburbs suck. It's all farmland and rednecks

Phoenix is my name
I'm have only seen Phoenix and the cluster of cities around it but from what I have seen it is just crackheads, racists and other assorted bums. I feel bad for the nice normal people here. I have been in most bad areas in NYC and have never felt so uneasy as in Phoenix and that was a not too bad area. I have seen East Coast crackheads, Florida crackheads, West Coast crackheads... Nothing compares to the Phoenix streetwalking junkies. They make at least 50% of the population there. I saw more junkie bums than normal people. Figured if I went to other parts of the city it might be different but nope! Same almost everywhere I went. If it was a nice area nobody was out at all. The only place I really didn't check out was Tempe but I guess that is all just college kids...
There is nothing wrong with Arizona stop calling it useless
We have people that support Joe Arpaio and his racist policies, with his posses that round up immigrants that came to this country for a better life. We are the only state with a state gun, with people actually believing Obama is Muslim, or that he was born in Kenya. There are also a large number of people who support Alex Jones, who I think is mentally retarded. If you do come here, just go to the Grand Canyon, go to Las Vegas, and then if you really want to, you can take a plane to Tuscon, with some smart people in it.
Our governor is also mentally retarded, and only became governor because Janet Napolitano, an actually smart woman, was appointed Director of Homeland Security.
Do not come here! It is full of Evangelicals who think that we should secede, and that the only way to be safe is to have 15 AR-15s in your house.
I really hate you guys I am really offended
Massachusetts is by far the best state!
Massachusetts is disgustingly liberal, to the point where it is plain annoying and hard to put up with. My family lives north of Boston, and it's just terrible. It is an all secular, atheistic state, and we are moving down to Tennessee to be around people who are the same.
The whole liberal intellectual atmosphere is great, but the landscape is so boring. It's just so flat and developed. There are a few hills in the west, but overall it's boring.V 16 Comments

Colorado is the best state!
I'm from New York and have been living in Colorado for 3 years. Colorado is so boring and there is nothing to do; people are not very friendly. Compare to New York, I think New York is so much better because people are always nice (It is not true what people said about the New Yorker.). New York is very convenience. They have beaches beautiful scenery and some of the best education in the nation. New York is fun! Particularly in the summer, everyone wants to go there for vacation. I moved to Colorado because of my parent.

Oregon is by far the worst state. There is literally nothing to do in the whole state. People are so rude and obnoxious. It smells and there is trash and poverty everywhere. I hate Oregon. IT’S THE WORST STATE EVERRR.
What!? Is Oregon on this list!? Has anyone ever been there? No bugs in summer, home to worlds biggest hamburger, beautiful oceans and mountains, etc. Why don't ya'll live in Oregon and see what it's like before you criticize it.
You can't pump your own gas here or they will threaten to fine/arrest you, and the people are rather a bit odd. I'd say quirky, that might be giving them too much credit. I was happy to leave this state as fast as I got there.V 10 Comments
