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 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.

Mississippi is a very poor, rural state. No major cities and bad economy. And tourism is bad too, who wants to visit Mississippi? How unfortunate I bet the people are nice and soul food is really good

Texas has King Of The Hill, Florida has all the hilarious crazy people, Alabama, despite incest, has a great song about it, Louisiana has great food, Kentucky has chicken, and Georgia and Virginia seem nice.
What does Mississippi have? Nothing. No redeeming factors. Neither does north or south Carolina, West Virginia, Arkansas, or Tennessee, but Mississippi is the worst.

I'm just living here because I'm with the Navy, otherwise I would have never come here. This place has absolutely nothing going for it. The locals seem friendly at first but judge you for your accent or just for being from somewhere else. People are so ignorant that at night I feel dumb from having conversations with locals throughout the day. Just the way people think here is like a throwback to another era. They think their state is so awesome just because its insanely hot and humid in the summer, unlike the colder states up north that get snow in the winter. Its no joke that MS is absolutely dead last in everything and it shows. I'm so happy that I only have another month of living here and it can't come soon enough. If you don't like swimming in brown water, hunting, guns, crawfish, country music, huge trucks, racial disputes, and more guns then stay away from this dreadful place, otherwise if you don't do/own any of the above mentioned items, people WILL judge you!

I live here & I'm trying to get out of this redneck dungeon! We often see a naked kid by our business playing in the kiddie pool in their front lawn. There is a man who lives in his van at McDonald's. Every vehicle on the road is an old beat down Chevy or Ford. There are crazy people throwing rocks at people's cars, dancing with a boombox in the middle of the street, and running naked in the downtown areas. Where I live is one of the NICER areas in Mississippi! I am not joking about any of this. Mississippi sucks so bad it makes Iraq look like Disney World.

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

Arkansas is the midwest of the south. It's dull, and poor. It only has Walmart, that's it. The scenery can be nice, but it has no major cities and nobody vacations there

Racists, unfriendly, disrespectful, drug problems, crime ridden, terrible weather, poor economy, nothing to do, and no scenery. I've never seen anything positive Arkansas has done or offered. So what is it good for? Just my opinion.

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.

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

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

Besides Omaha (biggish city) and Lincoln (college town), there is a whole lotta nothing. I bet people are nice, but come on Nebraska, do something exciting

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.

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.

4 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.

Of all the states that I've traveled through during my truck driving years thus far, Kansas has the least to show for itself. States surrounding it like Colorado and Nebraska at least aren't near as flat as Kansas and actually have scenery, hills, and mountains.

Kansas is America's #1 Wheat producer, and an all around agriculture powerhouse. It played a pivotal role in the battle against slavery, and troops heading off to the Middle East are often sent to Kansas for training so they can get used to the hot weather. Kansas is by no means a useless state, anyone who says so is probably somewhere in their parents basement drowning in their student loans, trying to find a job where they can use their Liberal Arts Degree.

I believe Brownbackistan has adopted a policy of do not expand medicaid and keep cutting benefits. If they want to live they will move. If they die from lack of medical care and starvation our numbers of low income people will drop. But lets go further than that. We will begin a pschyological warfare against those in low-income housing. If we can traumatize them enough they will leave state on a bus because we have destroyed not only their car but also the vehicles of everyone who tried to help them.

I believe Brownbackistan has adopted a policy of do not expand medicaid, keep cutting benefits and if they want to live they will move. If they die off from lack of medical care and starvation our low income numbers drop. Either way numbers of low income people will drop. But lets go further than that. We will begin a pschpschyological warfare against those in low-income housing. If we can tramatize them enough they will give up their low-income housing benefits and leave state on a bus because we have destroyed not only their car but the vehicles of everyone who has tried to help them.

5 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.

Nobody lives there, Towns are too small, and it's too conservative. I knew a gay guy who grew up there. He got the F out of there. Everyone in Wyoming carries guns, watch out

I do not believe Wyoming is useless. I think it is a lovely state with perfect vacation spots like the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone.

I lived in Colorado for ten years of my life. My family and I would always drive through Wyoming to get to the panhandle of Nebraska (which isn't much better, by the way), and there is literally nothing there. The capital of Wyoming (Cheyenne) is essentially on the Wyoming/Colorado border, which I assume is because they're trying to leech tourism from the Rocky Mountain skiers. It's as flat as Kansas, save for a few scattered bluffs here and there, and those are literally the only sights you will see on the road.
Yes, Yellowstone is there, but it's really nothing special. It smells like sulfur and unless you are a hiker it's not for you.
Essentially, the whole state is like a sheet of desert with a few rocks poking up. No stars.

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.

6 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.

California is necessary for the United States. Our country would have a terrible economy without California. Multiple times certain entities have tried to make The Golden State its own nation or alter its size somehow. This is due to various reasons. Firstly, California could be its own nation and still have one of the top economies in the world. Secondly, California is an ideal state due to the education, attractions, and climate its shows off. You could go north to the woods near Redding and Shasta Lake, make your down to Sacramento, then the San Francisco Bay Area with San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, and more. Do not forget about sunny Los Angeles, San Diego, neighboring cities and all of the attractions this area boasts. Oh, and do not forget about the state's farmland, as a majority of you're the fresh produce you consume comes from the Golden State. Wherever you reside likely does not have rich, fertile soil and perfect growing conditions like California does. Think about all ...more

I disagree with this one. California is not useless. I would agree that some of the people are rude, but this state is definitely not useless. Do you realize how vastly different our economy would have been if not for California? And it's such a great state overall. Breathtaking natural beauty of all kinds, from deserts to beaches to snowy mountains to countless green, rolling hills in the countryside to big cities like L.A. and San Francisco. The weather is great here. We get moderate winters, and it's only because of climate change that we don't get enough rain, otherwise I'd say California has the BEST climate and weather in the entire U.S. We have Stanford and Berkley and thousands of other colleges where you can pursue degrees in almost any field. Great job opportunities here, too. California is NOT useless. You can nit pick as much as you want, but don't call this state useless because that's a lie and I think everybody knows that.

I love California! I am only 14 and haven't lived anywhere else, but even I know it is one of the most beautiful places from the redwoods to the beach. And hello, the Bay Area?! You can basically call it the center of technology. Also, a lot of famous headquarters are in the Bay Area, like Tesla, Apple, Google, Yahoo, Sony, Netflix, Wells Fargo, and so many others. I actually live in the bay area (somewhere called Atherton if anybody knows). Yes, Los Angeles may be a bit dirty, but it has places like Hollywood, and Disneyland is near Los Angeles. California is a beautiful city and I am proud to call it my home.

No its not! I'm a 12 year old and I love my home! I love the beach there, the movie stars, the sports teams. How are we useless if we literally make almost ALL the films you guys watch. We also have some of the nicest beaches and we have a huge distribution to the space program! My grandpa and family members all work for nasa and are making awesome discoveries that will help all you other states! I love the lakers too and Kobe Bryant lives near me and I think that's the best thing ever! I don't think my home is useless and it shouldn't even be on this list!

7 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, and is ranked 38th in population. The capital and largest city is Charleston.

This poor state never gets a break simply due to it's geography it will never succeed and these poor folks will always be poor. We need to relocate all these folks to a better state

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?

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 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

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

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.

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...

Really my dad lives there and when I went there we camped, hunted, we went sightseeing, we did everything so who every said that should go to Montana and stay there for a long time, not just look at a map or google.

A Montana politician body slammed a reporter with no provocation. In most states, people would have the decency to be appalled. In Montana, the thug politician's career skyrockets and they elected him governor. SMH.

9 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 grew up in GEORGIA , and we had many sayings about Alabama " I wouldn't shoot a rattlesnake trying to get out of Alabama" ..." Did you hear about the Fire at the Alabama Governor's mansion ? / burned it right down to the wheels !"...when we would drive to New Orleans from Atlanta we would pray all the way through ALA. to make it across! A friend of mine from TEXAS once said " >the next you you go to Alabama ...I replied "But people from GA DON'T GO to ALABAMA unless it's some terrible necessity!" THE RED NECKEST PLACE on EARTH at least Mississippi has some literary heritage ! Look at a MAP of the Southeast and you can see Georgia physically pushing Alabama away !

Alabama should been number 1 not number 8 like flowerwave sweet home Alabama I'm not coming home to you anymore. The people there is very boring and the life there is really boring. Also half of the people there can't talk popular English they grammar are very messed up. Mostly of the people there just stared at you a lot like you from out of space. The school system is definitely messed up there. Ain't no really smart kids who come from Alabama they all seem slow to me. The environment is really terrible to live at depends on where you live. I can say that because I use to live there but I wasn't from there my hometown is New Jersey. Why in the hell NJ is on the list when it come down to useless city...

I used to live in Alabama, and I can name 5 reasons why it's useless:

1) The school systems are horrible. All I knew how to do in 3rd grade math was add.
2) Creativity is unacceptable. I was harshly bullied for being an artist.
3)You must believe in God. I don't go to church, and everyone judged me for that.
4) You must use improper grammar. Everyone thought I was a genius, just because I don't say "ain't".
5) You must be raised there. People asked me if I was from Wisconsin, because I didn't sound exactly like them (I'm not from Wisconsin).

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.

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

I love North Dakota! Have any of you who commented actually ever been there? Probably NOT! So why are you saying it's useless? Theodore Roosevelt was a useful person! You people are commenting badly when you haven't even been there. That's just sad. There's a bunch of things you can do in North Dakota. I am one of the MANY people who are proud to live there. Next time, THINK before posting a bad comment

Jesus Christ I think this state is like those chinese cities that exist but no one lives in.

I mean we could easily sell this state off to Canada and even Canada wouldn't notice. They'd wonder why their annual budget is -$5.00 (CDN, of course)

Look on Google streetview at Bismarck. It's reminiscent of a small unincorporated live-in community you'd see within 30 miles of some major city elsewhere.

I live on the SD/and border, and these comments are really pissing me off...I have one thing to say...DON'T LIVE HERE IF YOU DON'T LIKE FARMING...everyone's saying things like "it's to empty...", that's kinda the point. North Dakota is a top producer in Oil, and South Dakota is a top producer in Corn/Beef...We rely too much on 3 states: California, New York, and Texas...I can say this clearly...the world would end if those states didn't exist...and no that's not a compliment!

There is absolutely no reason for there to be two Dakotas. There's hardly anyone or anything out there. One Dakota would be plenty.

The Contenders
11 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.

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.

Oh my goodness, stop making a big deal! I understand Hawaii is bad but ya'll are making it seem more bad than it is, I went to Hawaii in July 2021 and there is nothing bad about it! The culture was nice, the beach was really good, the food was awesome, and the people are so sweet.

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.

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

Nevada seems like it has a lot going for it with Vegas. But the state is an uninhabitable, landlocked desert, and it cannot sustain a city like Vegas. As climate change gets worse and water gets more scarce, they're not gonna have a good time keeping the city alive. And anyway, Vegas isn't even a good city to begin with in my opinion. It's a garish sprawl-scape whose second biggest claim to fame (after gambling) is that it has a bunch of knockoffs of global landmarks

Where people go to become broke if they have a gambling problem, or shoot themselves if they get their lifetime buffet pass taken away from them.

I love Las Vegas and Reno, but besides that, there's nothing but desert.

The only thing of relevance is the hookers and gambling.

13 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.

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.

Statistically right behind Mississippi on all the bad lists. Ditto for being at or near the bottom on the good ones. A culture of crime, poverty, ignorance, governmental malfeasance, this state has it all. Do your own research.

14 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

I'm Asian American and had to live here for two years because of a job. OKC to be exact. I came here with a positive outlook believing in the saying that Okies are friendly. Luckily, it's a bit more diverse in OKC because it's their "major city". I encountered some good folks, but the majority were ignorant, racist, and stupid. These racist folks wouldn't flat out use any racial slurs, but their behavior/attitude toward me explained it all.

I know there are good and bad people everywhere, but the bad encounters here outweighed the good. The racist folks made life extremely miserable for me during my two years here. I was glad to leave after these two years when I found work back on the West Coast. I can only imagine how much worse it'd be had I lived in a small town of OK.

I used to live in Texas which has a great education system and it also gives the us a lot of food and cattle. After the 1920s Oklahoma has not done anything meaningful. After the "Black Gold" happened it was one of the top states in the unites states, but now it has not done anything that Texas or some other state can't do. On top of all of that, Oklahoma has a terrible education system to go along with it.

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.

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

Moved here for work and regret it. Nothing to do. Newark is cool along with the northern end of the state. The rest of Delaware sucks. Boring, nothing to do, very few chain stores. The beach is always packed since the entire state ends up there in summer. Traffic sucks. People act like rednecks and have zero common sense. You wonder about the education levels of people here sometimes by the way they speak. Hypocrisy runs this state. Look good on paper but don't apply it. Only med marijuana state that refuses to allow patients to buy the medicine they need. Price gouging is rampant. Girls all have babies by a few different guys and wonder why they can't find a good guy. STDs thanks to the air force base. No one wins at the casino.

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

The appendix of the states. If you try to imagine the most unique, vibrant, and relevant place you can think of, then you try to picture its antithesis, you'd get Delaware. I'd say Maryland should take it but I sort of like Maryland. Ditto for PA. I guess you could give it to NJ but that would be geographically awkward.

I've lived in Delaware and I still do, and it's the most boring state. Most people live in New Castle County, the northernmost one right below Philly. The biggest city, Wilmington, is one of the most dangerous cities in America. The only thing to do is go to Rehobeth Beach or to a mall. That's how boring it is. Whenever me and my friends decide to hang out, those are the two things we can think of to do.

16 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.

The climate in Illinois often crappy. Extreme hot to extreme cold. While not this year, snow can accumulate several inches during any given storm. It is rather humid, thanks to Lake Michigan and that make heat less tolerable.

The politics are awful. The state continues to have high debt levels and the only answer from the ruling party is to raise taxes on everything. Bringing in more casinos and legalizing marijuana dispensaries are two other option for boosting revenue.

The crime, especially in Chicago proper is awful. 490 murders in 2019 and over 2000 shootings. Granted both numbers are down for a third straight year, but the total is still too high.

The sports teams all missed the playoffs in 2019, again, and going to the games is getting unaffordable for many families.

The state continues to see a net outflow of people and has for several years

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.

I have lived in this state most of my life. Chicago is exactly what makes this state crap. Thre is nothing good about that city. Full of violence and corruption, but what more could you expect from a liberal, Democrat comtrolled city? They are so good as saying that they care about the little man, but look at where the worst places economically are. California anyone? Southern Illinois should secede and become it's own state because it is a beautiful area, especially in the hills and forest area. I am headed to Tennessee in a few years. No income tax baby!

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.

17 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.

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

Why the hell is NJ on here? I'm only 13 and I've lived in New Jersey my whole life! Some of the greatest music of all time such as Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston, came from this state. The Statue of Liberty is in New Jersey, Ellis Island, etc. Heck even MetLife Stadium, where the Giants and Jets play is located in North Jersey. Immigrants from hundreds of years ago migrated here along with Delaware. And we wouldn't have some of the Greatest movies such as the Goonies, Jaws, Back to the Future, etc. because Steven Spielberg who directed Jaws and Produced the Goonies and Back to the Future is form New Jersey! I think New Jersey is the Best state in the entire universe! I've been to other states all along the east coast and some in the plains. I've never seen any of them be as good as New Jersey.

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.

I'm not even from America. I'm from Ireland but the general opinion over here, which is mostly influenced by the Jersey shore, is that it's a dump. Before people start saying anything though, I have actually been to New Jersey though and did not think highly of it compared to New York. The thing that annoyed me most though was I asked people and they didn't even know where the original Jersey was. Its called New Jersey for a reason not as the people there called it "joisy"

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

California is know for its celebrities.
Wisconsin is known for its cheese.
Pennsylvania is know for its Hershey's chocolate.
Kansas is know for its corn.
Michigan is known for its cars.
NY is known for the statue if liberty.
Oklahoma is known for its bbq.
Florida is known for its beaches.
South Dakota is known for mount Rushmore.
Ohio is just plain farmland. Only that and just boring highways. That's LITERALLY IT.

Ohio is like a black whole in the country, it is void of happiness and smells like dissapointement and shame. It is as boring as its name ( which sounds like someone putting together random noises) suggests. The only reason Michigan never became part of Canada is because Ohio sucks.

if you all change your votes so Missouri is the worst place in the universe I'll take my vote off Ohio. in support of that I won't comment on what I actually dislike about this state. which is far less than what I despise about Missouri

I lived in Ohio for about 5 years. I hated it. I never want to go back. Cleveland is alright, the scenery is alright, the state as a whole is just alright. The state is just very generic. Nothing that special about it.

19 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.

This whole state feels like an entire third world country run by literal white supremacist Nazis that are trying their very best to compensate for a little something of theirs. And even all the potatoes that they grow unfortunately can't make up for that.

Nothing but idiots, unfriendly, uneducated and unwilling to accept diversity of any form. These people will bully you, and your family all the while showing the world that the IQ of every person in the state added together still falls short of a 5 year old. Seriously this place should just be wiped off the map... it is useless.

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 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

20 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. Iowa is a strong Republican state with Constitutional Carry. Masks have never been mandatory and Iowa was never locked down.

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.

Iowa is the most stupidest state ever and I want this place to be removed as a state. I hope it gets nuked. It is the flattest state in the country, people here are meaner than New Yorkers, everyone here is dumb. All Iowa is is corn and has really no cities. It's just a horizon. Nebraska would be a better state. The crime rate is super high, and Des Moines is basically sucky and dead as Chernobyl. It's so boring, I can't express how I hate this state and living here. This is the place where you go die.

Lived in des moines area 3-1/2 yrs. It is the armpit of America. There is nothing to do in the entire state. There are lakes that are filthy dirty. The landscape is ugly and flat. The Zoo is lame. Museums are lame. Restaurants are chains. Licensing your vehicle is over $468 vs. $98 for Illiinois. 2 good colleges but when your kids! The worst State to live unless corn and soybeans are your thing. Shopping is boring. Hair and clothing styles are several years behind. Never want to go back.

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.

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

Ya'll are ridiculous for thinking that Kentucky is boring. I'm 14 and I've lived in Kentucky my whole life. It's one of the most beautiful states. Here's five reasons why Kentucky is so amazing. 1. We're famous for horses and horse racing. What other state has the Kentucky Derby? 2. There are many historical towns and sights to visit in Kentucky. For example, Abraham Lincoln was born here. You can even visit his house. 3. The rolling hills and farmland in Kentucky make it almost as beautiful as the Irish countryside. 4. Most people in Kentucky are super friendly. There are also a lot of Christians like me. 5. And last but not least, we've got Kentucky Fried Chicken! (KFC) How is that boring? There's so much more that Kentucky has to offer, I can't even think of it all. So now tell me, how boring is Kentucky after that?

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.

Only things to really do around here is 1. Go to a bar 2. Go out to eat 3. See a movie aand that's about it. The drivers are SO rude! Nobody signals anymore, you could be doing 80s on the highway and everyone will still go around and cut you off (And not signal when they do it) But besides driving, you have good people and you have queers. It's an okay place, definitely gets very VERY boring cause there's so limited things to do. And then if you're into the music scene, this town is dead when it comes to trying to find a dagon band. If you're trying to get noticed in music around here... good luck.

Depends on what part you're in. In the cities, you get southern charm mixed with intelligent people. In the rural areas you get a bunch of rednecks who are just longing for their town to be known for something. Everything is centered around High School sports and the basketball team of a mid-level University that 99% of the state didn't go to. (most) Kentuckians have a deep devotion to their state, which is how they retain most of the population. The Central Ky landscape is pretty beautiful.

22 Utah Utah is a state in the western United States. It became the 45th state admitted to the Union on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th-largest, the 31st-most populous, and the 10th-least-densely populated of the 50 United States.

This is a dumb list. Every state means something to at least someone. Every state has its own unique features. There are many states I love to visit. I think it's dumb how all the people on here are saying very mean things about certain states and the people that live there. Utah is a great state and so are all the other states on here. Even if the majority of people that live in certain states have a different political opinion than you or have different religious beliefs, we all are part of the greatest country. Ok so Utah is known to have many members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, what's wrong with that? We have the opportunity/right to believe whatever we want in the USA. So we shouldn't discriminate them. And if you're a Republican from a red state you shouldn't say California or New York are terrible states because you don't have the same political opinion as most of the people that live there. Because the states are still very pretty and there are still ...more

Honestly, people, why do you hate us? I live here, and obviously, most of you have never visited this place! We have the greatest snow on Earth and if you live in a place like Payson, West Mountain, or Eagle Mountain, you'll live near some really nice people! People say it's really dry, and it has nothing, but look at some images of our mountains, our forests, and even our deserts! And the Arches and other places like that! This is not man-made! This is Mother Nature's masterpiece. Just come over to our state just once and take a nice hike! Smell all the fresh air, and you'll change your mind about the "dry 'nothing! '" And, of course, the "Mormons." Why does everyone hate on all of us? We have our religious beliefs, and you have yours, people! Have you ever watched a video, or even a movie, listened to a lesson, and got really emotional? I've cried over this stuff before (probably because I'm a light-hearted person, but STILL! ), and it makes me just love Jesus so much because, at ...more

I hate Utah! My husband and I lived there and it was the most useless state in the United States! Religious freedom? I think not.

If you want coffee, soda, etc., STAY OUT OF PROVO! Provo, Utah, home of Brigham Young University, is one of the most pushy religious places in Utah. You can hardly get anything to drink except maybe at a fast-food chain because Mormons DON'T BELIEVE IN DRINKING IT! The day we moved there was the day that the tabernacle burnt down. That was hilarious, of course we didn't do it, but it was a weird occurrence.

Next is jobs...what jobs? I mean, unless you have a master's degree or you're born into a rich family, you won't get much of anything!

Their government...99% is MORMON, so separation of church and state doesn't exist there even though they claim it does!

The is beautiful, yes, with the mountains, but that's it, that is absolutely it!

It deserves to be number 1.

The strange religion is enough to put a lot of people off, but aside from that, there is a lot of dry nothing in Utah.

23 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 went to Rhode Island last year and it was amazing. I went to providence which a nice and clean city and Newport which is probably my favorite city I've ever been to and I've been to nyc. It was so fun and it was so clean. The mansions were out of this world and the beaches were cool. This is not a useless state and no states are useless. They all have a unique culture, history, people, food, and more. We need every state from mining areas to farms to industrial cities to transportation hubs and to oil wells. Every state is beautiful you just have to find it!

One of the worst states in the US. Also, it's not liberal like a lot of people say it is. People may vote democrat, but as a minority living in Rhode Island I can tell you first hand that the way they really think is "It's ok if you're a minority; as long as we're not actually dealing with you". Rhode Island is a state full of republicans in democrat clothing.

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!

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

24 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.

Vermont is communist. Bernie Sanders and most of the legislature - communists - all of them. They promote affordable living while taking from the working people to give to the lazy people. Very rich people are in the legislature and they do not know what it is like to have a real job. The governor is a rino who makes pansy ass decisions. he made a mess of the economy on the covid flu. No numbers in Vermont - just fake number made up by scared and stupid people like Dr Mark Levine the Commissioner of Death - Oh I mean Health Commissioner. "Heil Hitler" oh I mean "Heil Fauci" is Levine's moto...

Most boring and backwards state. Everything smells like manure. The quaint little towns like Stowe and Middlebury are facades like Main Street at Disney. Not livable. Taxes are outrageous and the government is completely mismanaged. This state has nothing to offer. Maple syrup just doesn't cut it.

Of all the states I've been to. This one was the most boring. Sure it has the scenery and the skiing (which has in my opinion is the best skiing in east of Colorado) it has nothing. Skiing isn't enough to make it not boring.

25 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.

One time I heard someone say something like "ain't nothing in Missouri but empty space and murderers". Pretty accurate, if you ask me. It's completely redundant. For a huge region that's just flat, temperate farmland everywhere, the Midwest has a weirdly large number of states. So you need a reason to add to the list. Illinois has Chicago. Minnesota's got the twin cities. Iowa's claimed the mantle of "the Midwestern state that's all about farms". Wisconsin's got cheese and federal elections. Missouri? *crickets*

your state is terrible your governor is braindead and you have the most backwards and overreaching legislation on the face of the earth, your judicial overreach on all things related to the internet only rivals that of Saudi Arabia. I'm not surprised if I am criminally charged for badmouthing Missouri on the internet under some poorly written word salad Parson's will pull out of his arse to silence all criticism of the corruption orgy he operates in the midwest. may your state secede and never be heard from by any of the rest, ever again. I'll withdraw my downvote on any other state where all of respondents downvoting it, change their vote to Missouri being the absolute worst place in the universe.

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...

I mean, the weather is, like, the worst weather in half the U.S. or more, also there are A LOT of Amish people, not saying that is a bad thing, but gets annoying once in awhile. The people aren't the best, but the little towns are beautiful and have some great people. I live in Centralia, home of the Anchor and home to Anchor Fest, and the place is amazing. But the big cities, Especially Columbia and St. Louis are not very good.
Hope I had proper grammar.:-D
