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 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.
First, I have lived here all my life. Also have spent time in every state East of the River. Well I read most of the comments and had some really good laughs.It seems easy to point out the bad things and do nothing to make them better. These comments, about any part of America, are part of the problem with Americans today. Yes, Mississippi has a long way to go to catch up with the rest of the country, if we want to. I would almost best the rest of the country catches up with Mississippi first. I base this on what I see happening in America today. Seems to hate and fear are consuming Americas.
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
It serves no purpose. It relies on the other states to keep it running, has no natural resources, no people, and is landlocked. Though the scenery is splendid.
Has literally no one living there.
Nobody cares about wyoming chicago should be its own state
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
Everyone acts so weird in California that I'm half convinced it's a whole country of it's own, Of course, that can't be right because it would've collapsed from the number of leftists there ages ago.
Worthless. Used to be a wonderful place to visit and see. Now just a cesspool of elitists and the poor the elitists oppress.
This is where the toothbrush was invented. If it was invented anywhere else it would be called a teethbrush. - pishposh11
Worst education, worst crime, worst health
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
Walmart is based here
Oh yeah this state exists - Randomator
Jesus Christ I think this state is like those chinese cities that exist but no one lives in.
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.
I love how everyone is insulting West Virginia's incest rates when North Dakota has at least TWICE as much inbreeding.
The way americans English accent is it sounds stupid. It's like it's dakoda instead of dakoTA. I just generally hate Americans and America.
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?
Actually, did you know that the Omaha Zoo is in Nebraska? And the Omaha Zoo is actually the largest zoo in the world? There is no such thing as a useless state... They all have a purpose for this country somewhere throughout history. Pioneers. War. Settlers. Native Americans. Your family even. No state is pointless- And anyone who believes so has forgotten what America is about. We are the United States! We stick together no matter what happens. We are there to help each other and stand up for what is right. We stand for freedom. And our states can represent those freedoms. It is time for America to rise out of the darkness and be the great country it once was- The United States of America. Be a true patriot! - LostDream258
Nebraska is pretty much North Kansas - Randomator
I've had to visit Nebraska at least once a year, EVERY year, to visit some grandparents. Now, the grandparents are nice people, and there's nothing wrong with them, however, it's the state itself. I have found barely anything to do there, and even TripAdvisor does not list the most exciting things to do there. You may disagree with me, since each person has their own opinions. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to move there in a couple of months, and say "goodbye" to the wonderful state known as "Texas". Luckily, Omaha isn't too bad, but all in all, Nebraska is quite boring, and it's basically flooded with corn fields and farms galore. Fascinating.
OH I AGREE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY but for me it was more then once a year thank gravy I don't have to move there and hope I don't have to move there - travelingteen
Drive through Kansas on I-70. That is all I need to say.
Backwards and racist. It is not the state, it is the people that make it bad. Too dumb to realize fracking is causing earthquakes.
I clicked my heels twice over and over again saying " get me outta here! Get me outta here!. The people are so ignorant'"
I've lived in Topeka Kansas my whole life and it's really boring. There is a lot of farms, its really humid, and nothing happens. But, that's also pretty safe too, no excessive natural disasters or crime sprees. :/
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. West virginia is full of history a a beautiful forest filled state that I am at least I can say I am proud of coming from because I'm a nice person - Billygoat666
Beautiful state, would love to be a ranger there. It is almost heaven after all. - Stalin
Stuck here for now, nothing to do, can't really do anything. Drug deals everywhere in plain sight yet no law enforcement, most people are rude with no concern for other people, lots of poverty, lots of waste, lots of chemicals, not many jobs. No amusement parks other than Camden which isn't much, and a ton of old buildings that are rotting away and no one will tear them down.
Actually good to get coal for your naughty president this Christmas. Space Force is a waste of money.
I forgot this state existed.
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...
Totally forgot this state even existed.
I thought this was Disney channel show
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.
Just chose this state
Hey there, I am someone born in Hawaii myself and can confirm that Hawaii doesn't bring anything to the table. Politics are so full of reverse racism (HIGH levels of anti-white sentiment, no equality anywhere), and Obama (which honestly isn't saying much). All Hawaii is liked is for the beaches and tourism, which can easily be found in other places.
TLDR; I'm from Hawaii, and it's nothing but a horrible tourist trap.
Hawaii looks kind of like a different country
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.
This state is actually nice when you get away from the major cities. The closer they are to New York the more radioactive and infested with humans it is.
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.
How tf is this not higher?!
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. Compared to ...more
I've never been there, but it looks cool. - KalloFox34
I live there and I love living there, it is a unique place. It is full of fun places and it is better then you think. This state should be taken off the top ten useless states because I love Rhode Island! And love living here
Why would it be taken off the list, it was voted for by normal people lol - sheetcover
I do live here, but I am moving to alaska next year. there's nothing.
I live in Newport, Rhode Island. Rhode Island is definitely not boring, as we have some of the best beaches in the country! And even though we are the smallest state we have more people than 6 other states! And for those who hate on us for being a small state, at least we provide the country some comic relief!
Area 51 is here - Mocchiko
Might as well just rename it Vegas because that’s literally all this state has really - Randomator
I Live in Canada, and I Never hear about Nevada.
Honestly Nevada is built off of entertainment and when the budget cuts come Nevada is screwed I really love you Nevada you're awesome but that's kinda the truth
And screw you people who think North Dakota and Minnesota are useless I'm one of the few and proud to live in and and we are full of resources and products that ARE useful!
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!
I voted on this because you all need to learn a thing or two about my state. First of all, Alaska is our largest manufacturer of oil. It is a military state meaning it will be the first to counter an attack against Russia or Japan. It has North America's largest mountain and the largest national wildlife preserve in the world. Alaska has more important minerals than even we know and holds more than 200 ancient Indian languages and cultures. Alaska is also the righest state, with more than 52 billion dollars in oil money in our state bank. So think twice before you vote for Alaska because it doesn't have Hollywood or because it isn't the biggest state. Who gives a crap about Hollywood and for your information, Alaska is over twice the size of Texas, and almost half the size of the lower 48. - SeanTracy
Should be part of Canada. Sell Alaska for $3 billion and that gets rid of our debt. - Smash64
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
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.
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.
Boring. - CedreticFomento
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
America is just trying to rip off Mexico by putting this wasteland garbage called "New Mexico"
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. We were driving through here and this HUGE HAIL came and crashed our windshield, also there is nothing to see or stop to do. - Joansb
I live here but the winter is freezing and 2 months of spring fell like winter, we had snow in april
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.
More conservatives, more racism. Just a huge embarrassment to this country. - KalloFox34
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
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.
Not much to do on Long Island, but I like NYC. - Mocchiko
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.
I was born here and I love it, dude. my friends
live here lol.
Shouldn't be on here... What is the biggest city in the country? New york city. What state s the 2nd most population? New york. New york is a GOOD state END OF DISCOUSSION
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. Good thing University of Delaware is right on the edge of Maryland and Pennsylvania because there isn't a damn thing to do in this ...more
It was the first state but it literally has nothing going for it - Randomator
Wait you mean buffalo new York I AM FROM BUFFALO JERK
I did a report on this state one time. Hardest thing I have ever done. - Atomrod77
I used to live here and the people are just fat gross and greasy. There style of clothing is 5 years behind the rest of america and my teachers were not that bright. If you want to go somewhere in life, just get out of the mid west.
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. Iowa has a great education, low crime rate, and is second when it comes to wind energy production. ALso we produce a lot of the food that you eat. So, when you ride your bike by a field maybe you should think twice.
I moved to Los Angeles at 21 and would never move back. Going back (to visit) is like going 5-10 years back in time. The people are simple-minded and live in a sad bubble; everyone complains about everything but no one does anything to solve their problems. Racism is minimal but that's because they don't deal with it often, so they remain naive (but not completely ignorant). People there will spends years there doing very little. The weather sucks so badly you'll quickly become obese from the sedentary lifestyle.
I got to agree the crime rate is way better compared to any other state, and the education is one of the best in the nation. One the other hand there is like no tourist attractions except for Adventureland and the state fair and both are only active during the summer. Then when they are closed for the other 3/4 of the year the funnest thing you can do is ride your bike around the dull '"corny" countryside. So boring.
This is a great state, what is this doing here? - KalloFox34
I mean if schools were not good and if there was nothing it would have been Mississippi with less annoying accents and less weight problems - kyanazadisgreat
Nothing to do
Yes, Connecticut itself may be boring to some people but we do have a great location. I mean both Boston and New York are relatively close... And not many states can say that!
The most homey feeling state.
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. Carolina is meant to be the homey state. everyone I've met here has made me feel so welcomed.
Charlotte's great, and the state has a beach and a football team, it's just enough to have a good life, and have fun, but at the same time settle and have a family
This is a good state with a lot of Army bases and good attractions a lot more important than alit of states
This is a great state to live in, and we don't just hunt and fish. We have a great education system, we have the most iron ore deposits in the United States, and we have the best football team in the entire country, the Packers.
Jeffrey Dahmer's home turf, that alone is enough to keep me out, plus the people there are ignorant and will hate a race forever based on the action of one person, 10+ years ago. - RichHomelessGreedyMan
I've lived here for all of my life and I love it, c h e e s e
Everyone is nice here. We have the best cheese in the world. And the trees in the fall are unforgettable. And let's not forget the Packers.
Myrtle Beach is the only reason to go here. - Mocchiko
Comments noted fit...
It's boring here. The only stuff to do here is only Historical stuff. And public transportation here is slow.
I do not understand why people are moving here. - CrownED
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.
I lived here for about 2 years and every night I would hear gunshots and sometimes even during the day! - Gaygure
Never have liked Misery honestly
#ROCKCHALKJAYHAWK - Randomator
I live in KC and I quite enjoy it, just stay out of the bad areas at night (like every other city really) In summer it is beautiful but very hot. - Stalin
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. St. Louis and Kansas City are two of the worst cities in the country, segregated; the blacks are as bad as the whites with the racism, a horrible state.
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.
Well at least it's the safest state and has Ben&Jerrys - Mocchiko
Nothing to do
I’m from New Hampshire and I love it so by law I have to hate this boring copycat (also your not the safest state, Maine and New Hampshire are)
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.
At least we have a good aquarium
Michigan is an incredibly beautiful state. It is also one that can take a stable family and toss them into the world of poverty in the blink of an eye. Once it does that, you are forever trapped in poverty and will have no help. I was born here, and am pretty much trapped here after my health crashed. Unless you are literally living in a cardboard box, no Medicaid or SNAP for you! And they DO NOT CARE since they look upon you as a "useless, lazy person who deserves to die in the gutter". I want to leave MI so bad, but frankly, the entire nation sucks anymore.
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
I love the state I live in.
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. - Tornadocracy
This place is full of conservative redneck hicks. Nothing more I should say, because that says it all. - KalloFox34
I went on vacation here. It was beautiful, but there was a lot of hillbillies. - Mocchiko
Top top you will always be home sweet home to mee! Good old rocky top WOOH rocky top TN! GO MY SWEET STATE!
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.
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
Indiana is the most boring and useless state I live here and there is nothing to do
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. - Merilille
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

What. Is. The. Purpose. Of. This. STATE?
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.
I’d say New Orleans is a pretty useful area for tourism - Randomator
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
South Dakota isn't very useless. It has Mount Rushmore, the badlands, and many other great places!
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.
At least it has Mt Rushmore. - Randomator
NH slaps man. Beaches, mountains, woods, cities all very close. Only true New Englandahs can live here because of the cold. All around boss state with a ton of fun
New Hampshire is great.. where I live there is no violence it is peaceful and nice
no wonder it wasnt on this list in the first place because everyone forgets it exists -
How dare you trash my home - Jake09
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
We don't get but maybe a month of decent weather all year to do anything. Then if you do get some decent weather, the only thing there is to do is spend money, get drunk or stoned, and eat. When winter comes along nothing changes except for the fact that you have to spend 20 minutes prepping your car for the 10 minute ride to work (if you have a job here). The people here are cold, insular, and narrow minded. I'm from this state but I'm well traveled all over the world. Minnesota is by far the most cliquey, fake, and arrogant state compared to everywhere else. The people here act like they're so important that they can't take 2 seconds to say hi to you. If you're in a small town, it's even worse. If you come to MN and you go anywhere you're not related, YOU WILL NOT FIT IN! EVER! Use that as a hint to move somewhere warm, friendly, and with plenty of work. UGH and don't even get me started on the taxes and the freeloaders on welfare! This state is horrible for small business, great ...more
To the rattlesnake round up person. We don't do that. In fact most people only kill snakes if they come too near their homes or to protect small children and pets. Small mammals don't like with rattle snakes or any kind of snake for that matter. I don't know if you noticed but snakes literally feed off of small mammals. We are proud of our home because we love and respect the places we live in. If you find a Texan who says something mildly rude about another country, it's because we are kind of on edge (literally) with Mexico right now with all of the illegal immigration. Also, we aren't that useless. We produce tons of oil which powers cars, lighting and even can be used to charge the device you're reading this on. Not only that but many people tend to forget that the main headquarters for NASA are in Houston. We, while working with other apparently useless states sent the first men to the moon. Please do your research before saying rude things about "useless" states. I hope the best ...more
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
Horrible, overrated state that brings nothing to the table but religion, racism and conservatism. - KalloFox34
How is this behind New York, New Jersey and Maryland yet the 3 of those states add up to more People and interesting things to do than the whole of Texas, mind you borring ass Texas is like 10 times the area. Its full of Rednecks, Hicks and School Shooters. About as usefull as Montana. - mikelatham
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.
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!
I've lived in Kentucky for two years now and I swear this state is full of dumbasses. Nobody pays attention to signs, they don't use turn signals, and there is so many nasty dirty druggies here. This state has so many bad jokes and now I know why. Dee dee dee people.
No, it has a lot of things to do. Universal, Disney, etc. - Mocchiko
It's the redneck version of California! - afeldman21
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
They account for the world orange production and it doesn't get most of the natural disasters you northerners fear. I love Florida.
I remember on one vacation I went to Georgia with my family. There was a really nice hotel. All of the people were kind and helped us when we needed help. We went to Busch Gardens and loved it there. It was a state that, after I entered, I only wanted to go home because of how tired I was from all the fun I was having.
I live there how rude
Hey we ant useless yee
Ohio is one of the greatest states in the country! - KalloFox34
This is the worst state ever
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.
I only go here for Hershey World. - Mocchiko
@Mocchiko-It's called Hershey PARK. Chocolate World is the factory tour next to the park.
Also have you ever heard of Dorney Park? That's an awesome place to visit as well.
I can agree. We really aren't known for much beyond the Renaissance Fair and the Farmshow. Pretty boring to be honest, but I'm Pennsylvanian and proud of it, even if we're not as flashy as our neighbors.
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.
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.
Maine is rightful Massachusetts clay.
What’s even here? - Randomator
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.
Arizona...hot, dusty, filled with Republicans and crack heads. There are some beautiful places, mostly up north toward the Grand Canyon...Phoenix is horrible...sprawling, flat in its heat trap of a valley, at least Tucson has some mountains to look at. But if you move here be ready for heat the like of which you've never experienced during the summer. It is brutal. There are two seasons...scalding heat season and wind and dust season. You won't enjoy either unless you're a masochist. Creepy thing about Arizona is that wealthier areas of the larger cities tend to be little oasis of racism, be prepared because a lot of those folk don't mind displaying it in public. Other things to watch for...radical Militia groups who enjoy threatening churches who offer charity, fans of rabidly conservative law enforcement officers, and a sad, sad, sad professional football team.
Full of more lame conservative trash. - KalloFox34
You all think arizonas hot HA! Visit Fiji - Oliversky
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...
What can you say about a state that charges you sales tax every year you own your car. Get a traffic ticket and the "administrative fees" are double the cost of the violation fine. Owning or renting a house varies from the top 10 most expensive to as cheap as you can find. Only problem is there are no jobs where the cheap houses are.
They should be #1! They steal DC and Maryland's jobs, they are arrogant and self minded, And half of the state is filled with hicks. Did I not mention that they are stealing Maryland's jobs, this is all amazon's fault. - jackson734367
Historically, Virginia was one of the useful, if not the greatest, states of the U.S.A. Currently, it has become a cesspool of uselessness for libtards. Damn Virginia!

Oregon is a great state. - KalloFox34
All these people are stupid. orgeon is too naturally blah
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.
This is a great state. - KalloFox34

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.
