Most Useless States in the U.S.A.

These are the states that we don't really care about. Which one would you not miss if it vanished?

The Top Ten

1 Mississippi Mississippi

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.

Well, so much racism here. The only good things about this state is that Elvis was born here. - JoeBoi

2 Wyoming Wyoming Wyoming is a state in the mountain region of the Western United States. The state is the tenth largest by area, but the least populous and the second least densely populated of the 50 United States.

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 looks like a nuclear bomb went off in this state, and judging by the quality of the truck stops (and the disgusting truckers attached to them) maybe that wouldn't be such a bad thing.

I keep forgetting that Wyoming is a state.

Wyoming is dumb

3 Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska is a state that lies in both the Great Plains and the Midwestern United States. Its state capital is Lincoln.

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

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

Nebraska is gay

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

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.

Flat, no trees, a few small towns, cold winters, hot summers. A lot more boring than Mississippi. The only reason people live here is because they are desperate to find a job.

"Flat, no trees" better check your research. Cold winters, hot summers? "Like every other place! " - lolingdog9000

North Dakota is one of the only reasons the us has any jobs at all, that's why we have no unemployment and have to bring in worthless people like you to work here

They ALWAYS treat their Native Americans like garbage for no reason!

5 Kansas Kansas Kansas is a U.S. state located in the Midwestern United States. It is named after the Kansa Native American tribe, which inhabited the area.

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.

The most dumbest girl in my class came here. there schools must be rigged.

6 Arkansas Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

This is where the toothbrush was invented. If it was invented anywhere else it would be called a teethbrush. - pishposh11

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

Look... It may be boring, and some what backwards, but it's home to some great people. We stand our ground, and stick together. The bible isn't the only book we reed, it's just the most important, at least to us. Yes entertainment is a joke here. There is VERY little to do, but you'll run into that in most states. We can't all be N.Y.C. or California. I've traveled to 48 states in the United States. I've been in 4 other countries. Make no mistakes about it, it was wonderful. There are days on end I wish I was somewhere else, but just where would you recommend. I mean seriously you have your home town, where ever that is. If you're satisfied and happy where you are that's great. We in Arkansas wish you the best. We may not be the most charismatic, politically correct, exciting state, but who is. As far as the cooking, it's great for the most part at least to us, but lol, you hit the nail on the head for some seriously fat people here. Look in retrospect it's not the best but where is?

Honestly if you can predict the weather here you deserve some kind of medal.

7 California California

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

I mean Cali does produce a lot of good food and I LOVE food, but many people think that the state in general is messed up because they think they are the only state with beaches. Virginia has great beaches too like the Ocean Front which has over 20 miles of beach and great surf. Also the people there are kind of stuck up because they are like "west coast represent" and other annoying stuff like that. And also, no one cares that you guys have so many sports teams none of them have won in a long time.

I think all of you liberal snowflakes living in California think that just because you live there does not make you better than anyone else, also the whole place has terrible government, fires every year in practically every part of the state, overpriced everything there, gas prices are around 4$, Hollywood has a bunch of idiots there along with the snowflakes who live in L.A and Beverly Hills, so what if you live in California? Doesn't make you better than anyone else

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

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.

Boring and useless state. Why does it exist

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

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...

The Great State of Nothing.

There are plenty of things to do in Montana you're just too stupid to realize it. if you don't like Montana stay the hell out of it

I grew up in Montana and my family has a ranch there as well. I cannot stand the state, I moved a while ago and will never return. This is a state to avoid at all costs. It is filled with inept people and is a welfare state. The only reason the population screams Montana strong is because A.) They have never lived anywhere else and B.) They are all brain washed from a very young age. They will also tell you to go elsewhere if you have a single problem with the state. I guess that is why the majority of the population is so poverty stricken. Good luck being a joke.

It's beautiful the food is better just like the Montana steak grill but the people are the best part they should not be in this list it should be in the top 10 best states in United States 🐩🌲🌳'🌵

10 West Virginia West Virginia

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 seem like nothing important but every state has a story but West Virginia is actually nice:) it may be a little bit boring at times but at least you don't have to worry about people killing or kidnapping someone, everyone knows everyone, has anyone ever watched October Sky? It's a good movie

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.

I went to West Virginia before and it was a big mistake. I could not find a single grocery store anywhere and at 9pm it was pitch black in the state with no lights on. And the only way the state earned there money was by taking 5 bucks from you every road you drive down. that's right lots and lots of polls. And no cars in sight at all when I was driving down the road. It was really weird that I didn't see any house lights on or cars in there driveways I was just wondering where everyone was? - 17musyznskin

The Contenders

11 Oklahoma Oklahoma

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!
- endsegregation

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.

How is this a useless state? It’s the tornado hotspot of the US! - Camaro6

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

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

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!

Rhode Island is way too small, it should be annexed by Connecticut and for the people that voted California, your very wrong, I don't live in Cali but I know it's vital in terms of agriculture and economics

It is so tiny.

13 Idaho Idaho Idaho is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. Idaho is the 14th largest, the 39th most populous, and the 7th least densely populated of the 50 United States.

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.

I live here and trust me, there is nothing in Idaho but fake wannabe "cowboys" with their cowboy boots and hats.

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

14 Iowa Iowa Iowa is a U.S. state in the Midwestern United States, bordered by the Mississippi River on the east and the Missouri River and the Big Sioux River on the west.

I 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.

I know whats use lusa the person who made this list and put Iowa at 14 aré you serios this is Numbers 1 in most best state so quit put ring that its din or a tupid Ps who made this list

15 Louisiana Louisiana

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 think this is the most useless state, just because the murder rate. It’s the most dangerous state and New Orleans has a higher murder rate then Mosul (Iraq) or Johannesburg (South Africa).

16 New Jersey New Jersey New Jersey is a state in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware.

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.

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

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. Like Minnesota has really bad water, New York is so busy that there houses are small and that they have many criminals and homeless people, California also has many homeless people, and Texas is too hot! Though, every single state has a very special thing in it! I am AGAINST this whole topic!

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!

17 Alaska Alaska Alaska is a U.S. state situated in the northwest extremity of the Americas. The Canadian administrative divisions of British Columbia and Yukon border the state to the east; it has a maritime border with Russia to the west across the Bering Strait.

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

I live in Alaska, but it is'nt that great, sorry. I mean you can drive for hundreds of miles and not even get to a town! You see nothing but trees ( some people like this but I find it boring) and worst of all you can't even get to another state without going through Canada. ( no offense Canadians) so basically you are stuck in a land with a 8 month long winter, with no history ( or very little) in a forest bigger than Texas ( though this does depend upon where you are in Alaska) 'rant over"

You guys look at the negatives... Alaska is beautiful, hardly discovered, but beautiful

18 Missouri Missouri Missouri is a state located in the Midwestern United States. It is the 21st most extensive, and the 18th most populous of the fifty states.

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.

Most politically correct state in the Union. Also the blacks are freakishly pathetic there as well. Matter a fact, I work there while living in Arkansas. Missouri is definitely funner to be in than Arkansas, but unlike Arkansas - what have they introduced to the country that is useful to the country besides almost average beer? Nothing is the answer... Budweiser is it and it tastes like cat piss. Missouri is useless...

Live here time to move

I've been around and deapite that there are some amusement parks and museums, the people here are the most dull and boring people I have ever been around. Its ugly here too! Everything is dead at night time no night life and like I said DULL

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. 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

This state has lots to do people! It should belong in the best culturally states list!

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.

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

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.

The resources it provides are useless now, since everywhere there is cities. Hawaii isn't so much industrialized its more for tourism nowadays.

Way to tiny for me to live in, nice place to visit, but not the best place to live. Hawaii is too far from other countries, its expensive to travel by plane. If your broke in Hawaii, your stuck here.

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.

22 Illinois Illinois Illinois is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. It is the 5th most populous state and 25th largest state in terms of land area, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country.

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.

Illinois is the most corrupt state in America. Dick Durbin is a 2 faced phony. The cook county group are all thieves. The governor is corrupt like the past two and will probably end up in prison. The mayor of chicago is an obama moron lover. The city has more killings than any other in the country. The taxes are very high and the state has more tolls than another state.

Born and raised in this God awful state! I hate living here. If you like arrogant, self-centered people, then this is the state for you!

23 Indiana Indiana

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

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

Flatland. Kind of like Illinois except has Indianapolis instead of Chicago and is more racist (see Pence).

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

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

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!

Liberal state that will tax-you-out-the-ass. Bleeding heart "progressives" keep voting in the same schmucks that believe that the people's money is the state's money. City schools suck and the so called "good schools" in the towns? Well, ain't so good. Outta here as soon as my last kid grads HS in a few years and headed to the shoreline of the Carolina's and flipping the bird to the godforsaken northeast. Keep it!

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.

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.

Great state! Top notch cheese and beer!

28 South Dakota South Dakota

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...

Also the most boring state along with Idaho. - lannypetersong

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.

This is a good state with a lot of Army bases and good attractions a lot more important than alit of states

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

The most homey feeling state.

30 Vermont Vermont

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.

Vermont 💩 on New England and New York.

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

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.

South Carolina is beautiful! If it really "sucks" than why are northerners moving there?! Yes there are some places that really suck but cities like Charleston and Greenville are starting to become super touristy. Coming from New York, Greenville/Charleston have been my favorite places to visit! I highly recommend.

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

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 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. - Tornadocracy

Woo! Go Michigan! Home of the Great Lakes. No matter where you are in Michigan you are never more than six miles away from a body of water. The upper penninsula in gorgeous.

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

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.

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.

How is this state useless? We produce tons of minerals and diamonds, have a large population and economic city, produce tons of oil and coal, produce lots of beef and meat, is full of nature and recreation, have tons of tourism, and are a major political center for both parties. But we are overcrowded so please if you are going to move here move west (like grand jucntion or mountains) or east (farmland and small towns).

I live here and it sucks. It's so boring and there is nothing to do. Some parts are very pretty but again there is nothing to do. Haha I can't even come up with reasons why it's useless cause all I can think is that there is nothing to do. It's healthy now the bright side but there are a lot of power plants and factories. Also everyone just jumps on the bandwagon and is so basic. (Okay not everyone but a large majority) Everybody loves the Seahawks and I mean EVERYBODY. If you like the Seahawks okay whatever but people act like you have to like football and the Seahawks because you live here. How is it not up higher on the list?

Rain. Old people. Fat chicks. Meth heads.

Yes, I live here, and yes I love it! It is indeed an extremely good state that while being forgotten is still great. But it is pretty useless and It's hard to tell which Washington you are in. (: indeed useless and indeed kinda boring but I love it and like to call it home!

39 Ohio Ohio Ohio is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. Ohio is the 34th largest by area, the 7th most populous, and the 10th most densely populated of the 50 United States.

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.

Ohio may be boring in some places (in particular, most of Western Ohio along with Licking County), but it's not all boring. For example:

Cedar Point
King's Island
Air Force Museum
Columbus Zoo
Pro Football Hall of Fame
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
And more...

Where was the NFL founded? Canton. The first professional baseball team? Cincinnati. What about the first CFP national champions? Ohio State.

What do these companies have in common:

Victoria's Secret
White Castle

They were all founded in Ohio.

Don't forget 8 presidents were born in Ohio.

Ohio is one of the best states, Many people may not know that. For example, Ohio has the biggest Zoo in the United States, How bout them apples huh? And there also several presidents from Ohio. Though U/S statistics say Ohio is the state that cusses the most, It doesn't make Ohio a useless state though.

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!

I am a Minnesotan and I voted for Minnesota simply because I do not believe we deserve this position to be honest. It's a great state don't get me wrong, but the weather here is so weird, last week it was snowing and now it's 60 degrees. If anyone from out of state asks me where I'm from and I say Minnesota they'd usually respond with, "Brrr! " or "Oh, okay." If this were a list for the Best State then I can guarantee we wouldn't even be in the top ten, (contrary to this list). Maybe we are so useless and irrelevant that people forgot us when voting for this list. Obviously we don't deserve this glory.

Good all around place to live. Living in the twin cities/suburbs is a lot different then other parts of the state. Summers are quite nice, it's like being down south it's so nice and most people spend summers on a lake. Winters really aren't that bad unless you just don't like snow in general but I tend to like having four distinct seasons. I don't think it's a top state for a vacation but it's up there for a place to raise a family.

I live in Minnesota and it's the most boring state out all in my opinion.

44 Maine Maine

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.

You guys don't make sense. Texas is a great place to live and you guys are stupid just talking mess about us. Just how are we useless anyways!?

Texas has some nice people, it also has a major case of bloated ego. I lived in Texas for nine years and was very happy to get out! Texas has the attitude that it is God's greatest gift to the world. Texas believes "the Texas way" is the only way to live. Texas is socially and politically crippled and diseased. I look back on the years I "lived" in Texas as the worst of my life. Happiness is seeing Texas in my rear view mirror!

Texas is nice and all but it's not that great of a place to have kids, the school system there is very brutal, and authoritarian, and the are starting to look like prison camps, if you cuss in school in other states, you probably get something like an in school suspension, or a Saturday detention, in Texas you get a disorderly conduct ticket and have to appear in court to pay a fine

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.

I really hate you guys I am really offended

49 Arizona Arizona Arizona is a U.S. state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states.

I'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...

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 moved to Chandler from Naples Florida. I hate Arizona the people are very rude and unfriendly here. It's very boring in there is absolutely nothing to do here but to be hot. I'm moving back to Florida next year. This place is depressing.

Phoenix is my name

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

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.

I currently live in Pennsylvania. But I live about 4 minutes outside of Philadelphia, so I see the bright, lively side of PA. However, outside of the Philly area and Pittsburgh area, the place is a dump.

PA sucks Jersey and New York are a load better I was born in Jersey my parents are from Brooklyn. I moved to PA when I was young. It sucks very boring. I would go back to Jersey in a heart beat and move to brooklyn even faster.

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.
