Top Ten Most Popular U.S. States

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

Perfect weather and beaches. Growing metros and one of the top 3 states in the country for international investments for a growing job market. Charleston was voted most attractive residents in the country.

Same as NC but small population. Get out and explore the country, beaches, mountains.. Watch some Carolina Football (NCAA), also is a military community. This it THE REAL SOUTH, hint South Carolina

Sure. We have history, and now we're famous because of the Charleston church shooting. But it's REALLY boring here. Nothing ever happens, and most of the people are downright rude, and obnoxious! We're super racist, and have one of the highest obesity rates in America, but overall, South Carolina is my home. And I'm damn proud of it.

Great beaches, hotels, weather, and year round good temperature.

42 West Virginia West Virginia

It is awesome. Harpers Ferry Is really informative, and the people here are really kind. It is all nature, and it's the best for hitchhiking, hunting, fishing, and camping. It should be top 10.

Snow shoe is great, winter place is great, hiking, biking, white water rafting. Best outdoors adventures of any state

43 Indiana Indiana

Born and raised here in Indiana! Yea we got a lot of corn but Indianapolis is awesome! So much to do there like Children's museum, the Indianapolis Zoo, Lucas Oil Stadium, Pacers, and much more! And don't forget that Michael Jackson's from here! Go Indiana!

Indiana is EXTREMELY underrated, it is very beautiful and overall very good state. California is a warm state, I get it, but it is also very crazy with celebs and has many natural disasters. Indiana doesn't have to many natural disasters, only having some tornadoes in the south and some light earthquakes here and there. Our cities are cool, we have Indi which has cool stadiums, places to go and great restaurants. Even Fort Wayne is cool, because it has an amazing zoo and a really awesome downtown.

Love Indiana. Our downtown in Indianapolis is amazing. And we know how to host a WONDERFUL superbowl unlike some other cities in the United States. Come visit Indiana. You will love it.

We are the best

44 Connecticut Connecticut

I've been living in CT for almost all of my life, and I must admit, it is absolutely wonderful. We have so much interesting history seeing as though it was one of the 13 original colonies. Also, depending on where you live, you can get a wonderful education, I mean Yale is located in CT, so that must count for something. We experience all 4 seasons, which is nice instead of always hot or always cold. I never see the people from Connecticut fit the stereotype that is always placed, that we're all rich and snooty and have a heavy accent. We may have a slight accent, but nothing major like a Brooklyn or Boston accent. What is also nice is we're right by the water, so it's not that difficult to visit the ocean every once in a while.

Really this state is really small! It even has no activity no enjoyment for children and no attractions! They even have the sweetest teachers in the schools at Greenwich tat seem like they want to marry you! Teachers in Connecticut are the worst! This country in compared to its neighbor New York? In a boxing match New York would win and plus New York has much more enjoyment! It has city Broadway shows and sports stadiums in Madison Square and even the funnest place for all little children, Playland and Connecticut... "Cough" nothing.

I love that description of Connecticut! It fits perfectly! I am proud to have lived here my entire life and I never want to move! So many people complain about this state but not realizing how beautiful and well educated it is!

45 Oklahoma Oklahoma

I've lived here all my live and am planning my escape. The people are friendly but you can't get anywhere without a car and if you desire an active lifestyle forget it! The weather is extreme and the humidity is miserable as well as the allergens ( we are always in the top 10 for worst allergies) I'm surprised we made 34!

Oklahoma is my favorite state in the whole world. It is a really fun state. There is a lot of stuff to do.

Oklahoma is the only state where you can have a dessert party and a flood in the same week probably and I live living here and I'm surprised it's 46th I thought it was like 15th considering it's always talked about

There really isn't that much Hillbillies in OK it is a nice state with nice people everyone thinks Oklahoma is a place filled with hillbillies and tornadoes but really it isn't...

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

Missouri is very fun! There are many places like the loop, which has all of these cool shops and restaurants and the zoo, science center, botanical garden, butterfly house, many malls, arch, and the busch stadium, home of the best baseball team, the cardinals, honestly I never have seen it quiet and I live in the where everything is exciting and like I said, fun

I feel Missouri is truly a great peaceful state. It should not be down this low everybody vote for it and we can get it to the top!

Missouri is amazing! Very peaceful, and a great place to live! You can see the arch, the Mississippi River, and the Missouri places along with many other places to visit!

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

Iowa is one of the Best states to be in. The Weather is great for all Seasons, there is plenty to do, some people say there is only one City in Iowa but that is Completely False because everywhere I have been in Iowa has a City there. Iowa also has Theme Parks like Adventure Land. The state is also quite peaceful when you get Used to it. Also people say most of the State is Corn Fields and that is partially true because the soil in Iowa is really great so people like to Farm here. If you like to Fish or Hunt you can do that here too.

I hate how everyone just believes every stereotype they hear about Iowa. We have everything other states have, except mountains, but if you want mountians just go to a state that has them. We have many cities and towns, over 900 to be exact. We aren't just farms and Slipknot, we have beaches, to find them, go to the lakes in Iowa. In fact, we don't even have the most farmland in Iowa, in fact, most Iowans don't even live on the farm. The weather is bad, but if you're tough enough, you can get used to it. We have theme parks like adventure land, the fair, etc. And we have the same technology everywhere else has. Stop believing everything you hear, if you hate Iowa, don't come here, we don't need hatred here. This state is very underrated and should be in the top 10. - JakePlaid

Iowa is a great state to work, rest, and play. Lakes abound, excellent camping, and water sports. No we don't have beaches, but we have educated, fun, talented, people, some move away, and take their talent with them. The likes of California, Florida, and Texas, could use someone with a brain, after all you elected the terminator as governor, and had Gary Coleman, who did in Utah.

I thing iowa is the best state in the world

48 Mississippi Mississippi

Mississippi hands down is the most hospitable state I have ever been in. The welcome you with open arms. I am a white male, who traveled with a black family. I stayed in their houses, ate some of the best cuisine in the world, played with little kids in the front yard, and had a blast! I know racism is rampant in the south, but Mississippi deserves a little more respect. Where else can you buy a 5 bedroom, 5 bath house, on 50 acres of land, all for roughly $500,000, not California. Lay of Mississippi!

Mississippi needs some more respect. Yes, in our past, we had slavery, but that doesn't mean Mississippi is still bad. Every list of "worst states" I see, Mississippi is always the worst. I don't like seeing my home state being the worst. Its beautiful and not everyone is racist.

Mississippi is the hospitality state. Awesome weather. Nice outdoors. The state has awesome eateries. The economy is good and offer good opportunities. It is not the bottom, it should be much higher.

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

I live in Ohio, but Wyoming is by far my favorite state. It has beautiful mountain scenery and huge plains too. There is so much to do in Wyoming. Cheyenne frontier days in the summer, Yellowstone national park, horseback riding, climbing mountains and so much more. Wyoming is way too unappreciated. It is an amazing state. I have no clue how it has a lower rating than Ohio... It is so boring here!

Great quality of life. Absolutely beautiful mountains and the nicest people. Yellowstone and Grand Teton National parks have some of the most beautiful mountains, water falls and lakes in the world. Devils Tower National Monument is stunning. Long winters, but wonderful in the spring, summer and fall.

Wyoming is arguably the most beautiful state in the USA! I hate how Virginia, North Carolina, Illinois and Ohio are so high up just because of their large populations which means people who live there vote for them. The states with low populations like Idaho, Montana and Wyoming and less so Vermont and Maine are underrated :(

Wyoming is the best place I have ever been in my whole life!

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

It should at least be in top 5

Montana is the best state in America! It never gets enough credit. We don't need a fancy sports team to be popular! But never come to Montana if your not a badass. If you can't handle our harsh winters and scorching summers then why come in the first place. Big Sky is hands down the best ski resort in the lower 48 right along the outskirts of the city of Bozeman. Hell the Kardashians even came to ski. So don't come if your not a badass like me. Not even Kim Kardashian can handle the icey roads (car wreck). Montana is a badass state. Should be #1 hands down.

Montana is a great place. Its beautiful

You can't beat our wilderness. If you love to hunt we've got it. If you love camping, check that. Wanna go fishing come on over.
