Top Ten Overrated States in the U.S.footballanytime
The Top Ten
Where do I start. Southern California is expensive and all the places you will pay to live in have NO Character; they are simply lame, generic apartments and homes with no style at all. Along the same lines are the people... Majority of southern Californians have no sense of fashion whatsoever; I mean it could be because they are spending ALL there money on rent, so they are left wearing 1970's Wal-Mart clothes.
Besides those points, there is traffic EVERYWHERE. It is a pain in the butt to get anywhere at all. You spend all of your time in useless Corporate jobs where you most likely have to commute, therefore your in rush hour all of time, and are spending all your money on living.
My next complaint is the ULTRA Strong sun. The problem is that since the temperature is always nice, you don't realize how strong those UV Rays R. I was constantly burnt and got a lot of new freckles. Then there is the Arid, Dry climate that will dry your skin and hair out like a prune. It is ...more
you know its a good state but everyone there is so snotty and dumb and conceited especially those idiots frm los angeles get a life californians
Coming from a person that wants to be a director when they grow up, I feel it's all of a sudden MANDITORY to be stuck living in California. I live in Massachusetts, and it also bother me that almost EVERY SINGLE ACCOUNT on Instagram lives in California! Like, their posting photos of them at the beach 24/7, when I'm having something called WINTER! I also feel people talk too much about LA and Hollywood (infected your brain...) and it's ALL this state is about! - kaitlynrad11
California is extremely overrated, in my opinion. I live in Michigan, and people keep going "I wish I lived in California." It's really romanticized as a land of opportunity and abundance, while really it's a land of drought, wildfires, and overpriced homes.V 43 Comments
I live Texas. It's deplorable. The air is unfit to breath. The lakes are so contaminated with pollution they recommend not eating the fish. The coastal beaches are rife with flesh eating bacterial out breaks and the water has a lingering putrid odor. Quite unlike the photos they show of a vibrantly blue colored Gulf of Mexico, the water is actually brown & you can't even see your feet through it at a depth of more than 4 inches.. The population density has risen so much in the past 3 years that if you live in any of the major cities all you will hear 7 days per week is unregulated noise pollution from ongoing construction projects and enjoy the hours of your life gone forever sitting in freeway traffic jams. On your days off you can enjoy the piercing sounds of stupidity via weed whackers & leaf blowers as the abused immigrant laborer's blow dirt, dust and debris from the neighbor's on one side of the street only to return later in the week to blow all the crap back across the street ...more
So many Texans think that Texas is the most beautiful place in the world (I know that since I live in Texas). But they think that because they have never been out of Texas! Believe me, I have been to a lot of the States in the country and Teas is a VERY ugly state. - pryan96
Never lived or been to any state that forces itself down your throat more than Texas. Boring flat landscape. Mundane dry culture. Not impressed
I've been to New Mexico, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. The scenery is great especially new mexico, but it nothing like I've seen in Texas. If you think Texas is boring then your going to the wrong cities.V 16 Comments
Never will you find a place filled with more scum and villainy.
Personally, I think its boring. Oh look, a tower! Ooh, look, a woman holding a torch! Yay I'm so excited.
To me this place is boring sure it has nature up in the north but New York City is too crowded.
New York City is a festering disease of the absolute worst humanity has to offer and serves the world's #1 example that having lots of money won't buy you any class. The regular working people were all very nice. The wealthy were all Trumptard'sV 11 Comments
I've lived here my whole life; besides the crazy stories you hear from the white trash citizens who make up probably 50% of the population, it's a very boring and uninteresting state. Mainly the people who thrive here are retired elderly people, ghetto scum, and hillbilly white trash. There's no culture, and very little fun things to do. The employment rate is also in the dump since most of the people living here are retired. The beach is probably the only positive to living in Florida.
It's called the sunshine state when it should be called the rainy state!
In my opinion the worst state I the nation. Overfilled with jerks and old people. Living here is also extremely expensive for what it has to offer. Poor healthcare, mediocre schools at best, high crime and the weather sucks, They call it the sunshine state but they should change it to the cancer state
Florida is not bad at all as what people say. Of course, if you didn't like your experience in Florida for any reason, I am totally OK with that. But when people start criticizing Florida (or any other state) based on stereotypes or what they hear(and it's obvious when they are), that's when it is not OK. Every state has ups and downs, and depending on the person, more of the other. For example, California was a blast for me. The only thing off was the weather, and that's the same with my experience in Florida. There is so much to do down there, but the weather wasnt ideal. Again it depends on the person, and whichever part of the state you go (the panhandle was questionable for sure).V 8 Comments
It is the most scum filled state ever there is people sitting on the street corners its horrible.
The first person to never do anything bad can call something scum
Louisiana sucks turds ok?
Live here, love it. Great place to live if your actually willing to go outdoors and hike.
It's a great place to live natural beauty. Housing affordable
Live here hate it
I hate living in this state. - Rue
Massachusetts really is overrated. Specifically Western Mass. Funding here is ridiculous. All of our roads and bridges are ridiculous, and NOT up to code. And then there's Eastern Mass. Boston. Boston is really just an outrageous tourist attraction. It's impossible to navigate by car, so use the train. While Eastern Mass is rolling in the dough, we people in the West are stuck on ripped-up trails they call roads.
I just moved to Iowa from Massachusetts and I can say that Massachusetts is the most overrated state in the US. Many people, not all though are crummy. The roads aren't on a grid so it leads to some of the worst traffic problems in the US. It isn't the worst state in the US but it is one of the most overrated.
Overrated expensive can do better for a lot less
I was on 495 when a major accident happened, my GPS said "Despite there being an accident, this is the fastest route to your destination"
#1 in the Country? Yeah, okay, if you factor out the stress of the abysmal traffic system. Can't even get to the grocery store without hassle because my small town is a through town to get to 495.
Wait wait wait, No way, cause When I looked at the unratted states or whatever North Carolina was #2 and even though North Carolina is 8th in overrated? No way :/ replace North Carolina in the top overrated states
How is North Carolina overrated?
Everyone at my school goes here, while I go to SC.
How is NC overrated? Though no place is perfect, I would say it's one of the best states. It's not pretentious and self promoting like CA and TX. Great weather, beautiful geography, affordable, strong economy, and really nice people. The methodology of this list has to be flawed.V 2 Comments
I lived in Georgia pretty much my entire life, I grew up in a very remote town really far away for Atlanta, well not too far away and not to remote, but I love it cause I'm a person who really cares about stability, success, prosperity and being able to work to live, not live to work like I'm currently doing it here in SF, CA. Georgia is one the best states to live in if you're a person who's plans for life are to have a family, a good and comfortable life. I moved to San Francisco 2 years ago, I've had fun and it's cool but it's seriously overrated, expensive as hell, and people here are not polite at all! I hate that if full of Asians who just make this city be so crowded and dirty! Anyways if you're planning to move to CA do not do it, cause you'll experience what it is like to get stocked in CA trying to save money to move out of it. I love Georgia and I'm actually finding the way out! Good luck #donotmovetoCA
Most overrated state! Also, why the hell is New Jersey on here? I live in Northwestern New Jersey and the mountains, forests, waterfalls etc alone are far better than an overrated place like NYC, California, or South Carolina! New Jersey if anything is the most underrated state! Its only the media to blame for trashing our state! Don't even get me stated with that MTV and that Jersey Shore! Our beaches are much better than Florida. Florida is too hot and is overrated.
Everyone here comes because of the business, but the people who actually live there know it for what it really is
I hate you all. Michigan brought you the cars we have today. If it wasn't for our Henry ford, you would get to your public dead end service jobs on foot. In fact, Michigan is UNDERrated. They say it's the worst state for high death rates. Well you know what, that is only 2 cities. Detroit and Flint. If anyone disses Michigan one more time, they shall regret it for the rest of their lives.
Not only is Michigan great ( I live there so I would know) but considering it is considered a bad state I don't know how it is overrated in any way
What!?!? I do not understand this ranking, I would consider Michigan one of the most UNDERrated states as well. This makes no sense to me, someone please explain what is overrated about this state?

I moved to Colorado Springs a little over a year ago, and I am just shocked at the experience. I agree that CO is pretty overrated, houses are more expensive than they should be (run down, unimaginative houses are typically around $300,000 in certain areas). Oddly, a lot of covert narcissists and quiet pretentiousness, but I'm not sure what they are so stuck up about. And DO NOT RENT apartments here. The people here have NO IDEA how to share walls with people, rent can go up as much as they want to raise it, and I'm not sure where they find property management people but whoa. Good luck getting them to follow a conversation, much less do their jobs. Lots of passive aggressiveness. I'm sitting here right now with a loud family above me just acting like they are in a private house. And this is the second unit I had to move to because the last neighbor seemingly wanted everyone to know about her sex life.
Every parent claims to have a "special" child, and I've run across ...more
I'll never understand why people get so worked up about those fourteeners. It might have the "highest" mountains, but they're not very impressive when you realize you're already 9,000 feet above sea level and you're still in the foothills. Compared to mountain ranges in other western states, Colorado's mountains just aren't visually impressive. There's no vertical mountain walls or glaciers, just big, brown hills. Heck, they aren't even the most impressive in the Rockies, but everyone there seems to think it's the center of the world. And the skiing? I'll think about going there when I feel like sitting in a traffic jam with a bunch of ex-California suburbanites.
Extremely crowded. Can't even go skiing on the weekends any more because it will take 12 hours to get up I-70. Traffic is outrageous at all times of the day, every restaurant requires a wait, and there is construction on every street. Exhibits all the symptoms of a state with super high population growth due to everyone thinking it's "paradise".
What a flat, brown, ugly state full of rude people. If you aren't looking west at the Mts this place is so ugly.V 4 Comments
The prostitute state. That's all it is. I inherited a piece of land there and wouldn't even sell it to you for 1 dollar because it would be ripping you off.
Living costs are very high as a minimum. Rampant racism from the local "natives". Potential for business is very small and extremely tourism based. Lastly, it's at best very warm, at it's worst humidly hot even during the night.
10 dollars for milk, and the flag is a lazy copy and paste from a prototype US flag with the 13 stars being replaced by the Brit's Union Jack.
Everybody wants to go there thinking it's a tropical hurricane-free paradise.
Living here for twelve years. The beaches are beautiful the air is good (espiceally in Oahu) and so many places to go. Only problem, IT EXPENIVE! A low quality shack over here costs a MILLION dollars! Other than that, I'll stay hereV 3 Comments
Cleveland is probably the most boring city in america literally there is nothing. Did I mention the toll roads?
Alright, I've traveled all over, and I confidently say that Ohio has literally NOTHING to do. Don't vacation here, save your money and camp in your backyard, it's a much better experience than what you'll have in the state of scum.
I don't know about the people, but the state itself, truly is the rectum of
The country. Reason being it is the dirtiest, most "non" environmentally
Friendly state in the country. I'm really tired of Northeast mountains and
Lakes getting affected by Ohio in particular.
Shut the heck up, I lived there until I moved to georgia for warm weather. Great state, Bad weather. - Maddox121V 4 Comments

I lived in Maryland for about 3 years and learned a lot...always keep your car doors locked, taxes will get you no matter how much you make, and last but not least...the state has traffic 24/7
I kinda like va I mean I live there they have great schools but not that great
I would rather eat my toes than spend another day in this state.
It sucks! To humid in the summer, to cold in the winter, and to wet in the spring! It rains like, every other day and there are thunderstorm warnings everyday at six PM during summer! ITS IS HORID!
Oh my God, VIRGINIA IS FOR LOVERS! not for haters. VA is also a good state. - Maddox121V 1 Comment
I love New Jersey. I love the people there for the most part. Lush greenery in the north and highly educated people are living there. You have the beaches and the Delaware Water Gap. There are much culture there and diversity. It is so livable. Though I don't recommend everyone moving there because it is so great the way it is.
How are we overrated!?! We r ranked 50th in the best states list! Its literally impossible for us to be overrated! Come on!
I live in Kansas city and I think it's boring, I mean sure we have zona Rosa and worlds of fun but those things get boring quicker than you think, plus here its very gloomy.V 1 Comment
