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
There's so many earthquakes here, the air quality is incredibly polluted, it's extremely crowded, and the people here are idiots. - Smash64V 51 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
There’s a reason why it’s overrated, here are the reasons
-beaches in the south
-low crime rate
-it has the international space station
-beautiful sunsets and sunrises (trust me here in north Texas there were many sunsets and sunrises that were unforgettable)
-the panhandle (I think some storm views are pretty there)
The only thing that’s bad is the temperature so think about it before saying it is overrated for no reason only saying “bUT itS HOt”
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
This is among the most OVERHATED states, not overrated.V 10 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.
The best state. I everyone else is jealous... the only bad part about it are the Jersey rats trying to call themselves New Yorkers. We have Niagara Falls, not one, but two of the great lakes, the mountains, the rolling hills, the great education, the beaches (lakes, oceans, rivers), picturesque small towns, the history, the culture, and not to mention, the Greatest City in the world, NEW YORK CITY! Plus all the songs about us. You will never find any place quite like it.
WORST STATE EVER!V 18 Comments
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
Boston is just so horrible.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
If you can take the heat, you'll love Arizona. - Metarock
I hate living in this state. - RueV 1 Comment
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.
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?
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

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
It was awesome until about 3 years ago. Housing market out of control. Every consumer us getting screwed over each in every way. The traffic is miserable almost all day anymore including weekends. Don't go skiing on weekends, way overpriced and possibly a 3 hour drive in ridiculous traffic. I have lived here my whole life, I used to love it, but it is getting ruined by the population and lazy homeless hippy boom. 20 year olds sitting on the street begging because they have already given up. Many people are starting to sell there way over priced home and moving on to a new state with the good amount of equity they have built in this robbery market of Denver. If you come to Colorado, don't come to stay, come to visit the mountains do some site seeing. That is all you need.
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.
Colorado looks exactly like the rest of the Rocky Mountain West. Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, New Mexico. What makes a state so different? Even the mountains are not as impressive. And I am a native.V 7 Comments
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
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
Four Words: "Two Words: Alien Rumors" - LOTP
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.
The only really good part about Ohio is that it's safe to live there, because they don't really have to deal with many natural disasters, nor many dangerous wild animals.
Other than that, it's really just an incredibly bland state. - Excited
Shut the heck up, I lived there until I moved to georgia for warm weather. Great state, Bad weather. - Maddox121V 5 Comments
Illinois is very flat. You have to pay tolls to go through the state. The people of Illinois flee to Wisconsin every chance they get. Chicago is the most rat infested big city in the country (look it up). The people whine about there sport teams more then anyone, other than New York. The only reason this state should even still exist is portillos.
That's not true... Yes it is flat and the tolls thing is ridiculous but it's a wonderful state with great people and nice suburbs... You don't know what you're talking about
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
A great state that is constantly being wrecked by Democrats or liberals.
Most people say that Kansas is boring, and they are not considering many aspects of the state. Kansas may be covered in many, many farms, but there is vibrant culture, like the local hospitality of the restaurants in the small towns. Get to know the people, spend some time here, and you might enjoy it. I'll direct you to a truly "overrated" state, that is #1, California. Kansas is really an underrated state in my opinion. Most people who say Kansas is boring are immature or just passed by the state.
Kansas is boring and prone to allergies, those who like farming it's a good state to live
I'm from here and anybody that talks trash on it is stupid. Kansas is actually way underrated in terms of being a nice state.
Most boring landscape, nothing but praries and flat land, worst weather ever, and nothing to do everything is tiring.V 2 Comments
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.
So the most hated state is overrated? 100% logic. - JakePlaid
THIS IS SO OVERATTED
Overrun with tourists. Nothing to do there if you don't like to hike, fish or hunt. I mean, atv tours? Zipline tours? The same old crap you find everywhere. Just meant to empty your wallets. And the poor old people. Cruise lines ship them in to Alaska literally, separate seniors from their retirement income and send 'em home. Pathetic.
I'm Alaska look at me I'm cold I'm so great
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 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.
St Louis and kansas city are cheap
I hate Missouri so boring and st louis is a hole
Why is this on here? Utah is beautiful!
How are we overrated!?! We r ranked 50th in the best states list! Its literally impossible for us to be overrated! Come on!
Oh hell no! Washington is better than overrated California!
Oregon is as it seems, its pretty nice there and it has many activities, I don't live there but I've visited and, yes there are "hippies" but they don't bother you.
Disgusting. too popular and useless.
Why is this state even on the list? Yeah we have cold weather in the winter but that's what makes us strong. Plus the temperature is just right for summer.
MOST BORING STATE I'VE BEEN TO. I HAD TO HIDE FROM ALL THE CRAZY PACKER FANS WHO ARE LOUD FAT N CRAZY PROUD OF THEIR USELESS TEAM.
Who the hell put New Jersey on here?! I live in Northwestern New Jersey and I love the mountains, forests, cold winters, and the waterfalls! New Jersey if anything is underrated and is trashed by the Media, and now thanks to MTV cancer show Jersey Shore people think we talk like that when we don't. Those acters/actresses don't even live here! Plus, in some ways New Jersey BETTER than an overrated state like Florida, California etc! South Carolina is the most overrated and is too hot in the summer!
What kind of "civilized", "liberal", "accepting" state allows cops to shoot at an [Australian] woman (who doesn't look like a criminal) who called 911 for help? Not to mention that the jury (believe that it consists of the citizens! ) acquitted the police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile (who was trying to comply with orders, by the way! Guess being black and having a gun means you deserve to being shot at.). Oh and I almost forgot about Jamar Clark, another one fatally shot in Minneapolis LESS than a year before Philando Castile was shot dead by police. Racist, killer police officers are not put in check in this so-called "liberal" state.
There may be a few successful minorities, but overall, I don't know how anyone would think this is one of the best places to live in America with all of this in mind. Speaking of the "liberal" culture here, this state was close to electing Donald Trump, even to the point that Minnesota voted Democratic by lower margins than the ...more
