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

Mississippi Mississippi is a southern U.S. state with the Mississippi River to its west, the state of Alabama to its east, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Because Wyoming isn't real. It was a myth created by the Republicans to get an extra vote in Office.

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

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.

Honestly as much as I like there scenery (even though it's burning down) the state has had poverty/unemployment rate problems like none other, very expensive to live there as well, especially due to the current population causing so much carbon pollution due to focused carbon emission and the U.S. could continue easily without it, ultimately all states aren't useless but if I had to pick one then it'd be California.

I'm a Californian and I feel like quitting this website. Whoever posted this is a disgraceful bastard.

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.

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?

I've been to 42/50 states in the continent United States. West coast, Texas, Colorado, Midwest, east coast, Michigan and the south. Arkansas is by far the worst. The locals are scared of things that are different. They seem to be stuck in a time warp. It's like they haven't progressed since the sixties. They are highly uneducated and illiterate. There's no longer any real industry or commerce, therefore the poverty is out of hand. The people are so simple minded and seem to be stuck on bible verses instead of reading a book with any actual facts about the world. The cooking is heavy and terrible, worst in the south. It's pig slop, but Arkansas natives are pigs. The obesity is sickening. I don't know how such poor people could afford to become so overweight but they manage. The smells. It reeks. It might have some beautiful landscapes, but the people, the lack of culture and the idiocy make this state a miserable place on earth. Avoid.

Are you saying they're simple minded because they're Christian?

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! "

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.

I love how everyone is insulting West Virginia's incest rates when North Dakota has at least TWICE as much inbreeding.

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!

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

Horrible place to live. Omaha isn't bad, more normal people there, but the south central section is full of inconsiderate, ignorant, entitled, 'good old boys'. I'd rather put up with the idiocy of a hipster kid any day over a farmer; at least the hipster may recommend a good band as payment for putting up with him/her. They try to behave as spoiled brat bullies, but quickly back down if you call them on their bs (people here seem to have a major fear of their own mortality). This for sure isn't all of the population, but you'll meet about 1 normal person for every 100 you encounter (could be more or less depending on your path of travel), but considering that the population of many of these tiny towns is low, that doesn't leave a lot worth conversing with. Remember, if a farmer starts in with that I deserve respect and subservience from you because 'farmers feed the world' bs, remind them that they were paid for their work and you owe them nothing.

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.

Usless? Crazy Expensive, Lots Of Homeless People, Rains ALL the time. It's bad, alright, but not Useless. Kanas Produces a Crap Ton Of Oil, which, like it or not, MOST people use Daily. Beef, for Burgers, and Grain, For Bread.

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'"

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

I 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

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?

Worst place to be for a civilized way of life! Toxic waste, no jobs, no pride, frigid ugly winters, and people that don't care and don't want to improve their lifestyles

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

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.

Why is Hawaii on the list? It's GREAT. Good food, lovely beaches, amazing sunsets, and amazing people. There's also pieces of history here and there because of World War 2. Overall, the cities have a wonderful mix of city and countryside. And before you call it useless, wouldn't 49 states not make sense? 50 sounds better. Don't forget they produced Obama.

None of what you mentioned contributes anything to the US on a large scale or important scale. Compared to many other states they do nothing to our country except act as an overrated tourist destination.

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.

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.

Stop disrespecting my home state this is the best state ever we have such beautiful mountains everywhere I now live in the nice state of north Dakota but my family often visit my grandparents on there farm also here in Helena we have every year ales for trails witch my church narrate does it's a beer festival that you pay to go to all the money goes to new trails in Helena it's great go check there site out posted by anyahbear

The Contenders

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.

The only thing Alabama has going for it is it is not Mississippi.

New Mexico

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

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.

America is just trying to rip off Mexico by putting this wasteland garbage called "New Mexico"

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

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

Why would it be taken off the list, it was voted for by normal people lol - sheetcover

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

Thank you for mentioning California when you should be talking about Tiny State - sheetcover

Merge it with another state that has a large enough geographical area and population to be considered a state.
I'm from California and I don't like these tiny states having two senate seats.

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

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!

Nevada is crap only reason why people go there and to live there is cause of Las Vegas all people do is gamble and drink and have so many hookers there screws up our economy

Might as well just rename it Vegas because that’s literally all this state has really

I Live in Canada, and I Never hear about Nevada.

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.

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"

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Look at the license plate, FAMOUS POTATOES. How is this state relevant?

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

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

Let’s be honest, think of anything else that makes this state important other than it was the first state...

I did a report on this state one time. Hardest thing I have ever done.

It was the first state but it literally has nothing going for it

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.

I live here but the winter is freezing and 2 months of spring fell like winter, we had snow in april

Oklahoma

More conservatives, more racism. Just a huge embarrassment to this country.

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.

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.

I lived here for about 2 years and every night I would hear gunshots and sometimes even during the day!

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

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.

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)

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 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.

Connecticut

As a Connecticut person myself. I have to say that Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven counties are all extensions of New York City and nothing more. Hartford WAS the insurance capital of the country but with businesses leaving for other states at this rate it'll just be a mini-Detroit. Nothing important exists in Tolland or Windham counties in the Northeastern part of the state except for Uconn. The only thing really going for it is New London county with the two casinos and the submarine base. Without that and the influence of New York in the western (especially the southwest) part of the state, it would be poorer and more boring than Mississippi.

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

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!

New York New York is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic Region. New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States. With an estimated 19.54 million residents in 2018, it is the fourth most populous state. In order to distinguish the state from the city with the same name, it is ...read more.

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

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 actually like New York, well I'm kind of biased since I only went to NYC but still! They have the cheesecake!

Seriously? This needs to be lower... trust me, I live in New York, I am not fond of Long Island, but when off the island... its not bad...
