Top 10 Most Boring States in the U.S. to Live In

*Yawn*, I would be bored of living in these states!
The Top Ten
1 Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

You won't find a more perfect example of everything gone wrong than Arkansas. It's caused Arkansas to become, quite frankly, very dull and boring. Negative and unappealing.

Arkansas is the Midwest of the south. "Cities" are small and boring. You can go on a hike, but most people just sit at McDonald's because there is nothing to do there.

Fayetteville is a cool college town. The Ozarks are beautiful, and Little Rock is okay. The rest of the state is poor, rural farm towns.

2 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.

If you want boredom to be your #1 priority, then move to Kansas. If not, look elsewhere. Kansas has nothing to do but harvest wheat.

What makes Kansas an even more boring and frankly quite inconvenient place to live in is the fact that they tax you for groceries. Why would you tax me for my groceries? Most of the other Midwestern states at least don't tax for that. Kansas already has very little to offer, and now you're going to tax me for nutrition... what?

Kansas is by far the most uninteresting state both my significant other and I have stepped foot in. We stopped here for a while on our trip to Colorado, and OMG, it's so bland!

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

YES! I drove through this state to go to Northern California (which should be a state of its own and #2 in boring!) and it was the most boring drive of my life! I have driven through most states, having been a military wife for 22 years, and there is no state more boring than Nebraska!

I knew a friend going to Nevada who wanted to go to a Denny's. They skipped one and said they would go to the next one. There was no Denny's until Sterling, Colorado. That's how much there is in Nebraska.

Couldn't find a single thing to do here on our cross-country road trip. It was the only state where we could find nothing. Went to the literal worst state park here.

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

Can anyone here name anything special about this boring state?

Don't know how this state isn't number 1 most boring!

5 Indiana

The weather SUCKS! There are bitter cold winters, yet it rarely snows enough to have any kind of fun with it. If we do get several feet of snow, it's just too damn cold to get out. Summers are cloudy and raining most of the season. Nearly 80% of the people are grossly obese. Rednecks, raging alcoholics, and religious phonies are running amok. The best things we've got going on here are basketball, car shows, Indiana Beach, Holiday World, Turkey Run State Park, and Covered Bridge Festivals.

The state is only made for adults over 21. Kids under 21 have nothing to do. There are no fun attractions other than the children's museum, which is made for kids who are no older than 12. All you see is cornfields and flat land. There are no mountains or huge hills or anything like that. There are also no family fun activities to get away for a weekend or family vacation. There are no water parks or amusement parks. Indiana is only made for people over 21 because there are casinos and bars almost everywhere. If there are adults who have kids under 21, I would not recommend living in Indiana. This is especially true if you're a family who likes to get out and have fun all together, or a family who likes to travel or get away for a weekend.

6 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.

It's literally so boring, it's honestly the worst state too. Pississippi is a place to avoid. Biloxi and Gulfport, don't go there. Their water isn't fresh. If you want a beach vacation, go to Florida, not Mississippi or Alabama. Jackson has nothing to do.

There's nothing here and has a poor economy.

Worst state ever.

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

I'm about to have a tournament in Delaware, and I've never been even though I live in Virginia, because there's nothing to do.

Delaware is just a small strip of land with absolutely nothing to do.

I've lived in Delaware my entire life, and there is nothing to do.

8 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.

It's more peaceful than some states, but there is nothing to do outside of Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland.

Ohio is the Rust Belt. Crumbling, sad, depressing cities with bad weather. Rural Ohio is kinda pretty, but damn, it's boring.

Where the sun hardly shines and the weather is neurotic.

9 Georgia Georgia is a state located in the southeastern United States. It was established in 1732, the last of the original Thirteen Colonies.

You can learn lots of history here, but then it's just golf and military bases.

No, there aren't! I live here and it sucks!

Outside of Atlanta and Savannah, there is not a lot, especially in rural South Georgia.

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

If you like looking at gas stations and old people with farmers' tans on their riding mowers, I suggest you move to this wonderful state!

Kentucky has 2 big cities, Louisville and Lexington. The rest of the state is boring and poor. Way too rural.

The Contenders
11 Colorado Colorado is a state in the United States encompassing most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains.

I hate this place with a burning, fiery passion. If you aren't a reclusive multimillionaire living in the mountains, you will hate Colorado. There is NOTHING to do, and the people here SUCK. I'd say this is a close second to Kansas. This state makes me feel like I'm going insane half the time, isolating, with long drives and nowhere-villes. The education is horrid, mental healthcare is horrible, and it has the WORST PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY. This place needs to be affected by the Yellowstone volcano, no matter how dormant it is.

It's pretty boring unless you're heavily into hiking or skiing. CO cities are culturally lacking, and people are mostly copies of each other.

Like half the state, there is absolutely nothing to do, but on the other half, there's so much stuff to do, especially in winter like skiing, snowboarding, hiking, the Incline, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the cave dwellings, Cave of the Winds, and other stuff that I probably forgot.

12 Texas Texas is a state in the Southern USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.

Summers here are like winters up north. You can't do anything outside from mid-June through mid-October. And it is very ugly, especially in North Texas. A Concrete Hades!

Boring as hell.

Aw, that sucks.

13 Oklahoma

Worst place ever! Or is it my town? I don't know, just really boring.

Nothing to do here.

14 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.
15 South Dakota

Of course, it's boring if you're outside of Mount Rushmore.

Very much so agreed.

Yeah, pretty much.

16 Tennessee Tennessee is a state located in the southeastern United States. Tennessee is the 36th largest and the 17th most populous of the 50 United States.
17 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 can't speak for the rest of Iowa, but living in Des Moines for too long can result in 'prairie fever'. Even though it's a moderate-sized city, there is virtually nothing fun to do. The few bars that every Des Moines resident aged 21 and over seems to crowd into every weekend are about as exciting as it gets. Most of them are redneck bars and a couple are grungy college bars.

Diversity is not something the city is known for, so for ethnic dining and cultural exposure, forget it. An artistic scene? Unless you consider endless paintings of cornfields art, forget it. There are plenty of big-chain steakhouses and fast-food restaurants, though, which, along with the few bars, may explain Iowa's overall weight.

Job opportunity is limited unless you work in the retail or hospitality industries, and the pay here is not enough to keep up with the ever-increasing cost of living. People here are somewhat friendly, though unlike "Minnesota nice", "Iowa nice" is only superficial. The people here are very conservative and don't like "outsiders". Even though they may pretend to be hip and liberal, their bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, and racism come out when they suddenly encounter the "other".

So, I'd stay clear of Iowa, and definitely avoid Des Moines.

18 North Carolina North Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, Virginia to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

There is literally no history here other than Ruger, and no actual activities to do other than backwoods yee yee boi truck driving.

Mediocre in every aspect.

Boring. Nothing to do.

19 Connecticut

This state offers nothing but boring, expensive, and discriminatory entertainment. The majority of people here are uptight and conformist. Also, everybody wants to be better than the next person and will look down on those different from them.

The big cities here are the only places where you can be free from stuck-up people, but they're filled with crime, unemployment, and rude people, with filthy streets that have been abandoned by the state. This goes along with the "criminal" stigma for people from those cities in other parts of the state. In order to live decently here, you have to afford a home worth 500k+ just to be in a decent neighborhood and have your kids go to a decent school.

Even Rhode Island gets more recognition than us, and they're a smaller state with at least more to do. Everybody shops in Manhattan and pulls their "I'm from NY" card because that's how much it sucks here, and nobody will know where we are from if we say Connecticut in another state.

20 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.

There isn't much to do there, and not many restaurants and cities.

People probably forget that Wyoming is a state that exists.

Who the hell even lives in Wyoming?

21 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.

Literally nothing to do unless you like mudding.

Nothing to do.

22 Florida Florida is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. Florida is the southeasternmost U.S. state, with the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.
23 Idaho Idaho is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. Idaho is the 14th largest, the 39th most populous, and the 7th least densely populated of the 50 United States.

I guess I could munch on potatoes...

24 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 has two big cities, and the rest of it is boring. The Ozarks are pretty, but North Missouri is just corn and meth.

25 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.

Just because something is generic doesn't mean it's inherently bad. And I do not know when that comment was made but never in my life have I see a huge amount of jellyfish in the ocean. Also the dirty brown color comes from all the trash and sewage water from New York.

If you like bars and walking through generic wooded paths, and also love a little dirt brown, jellyfish infested waters across the ENTIRE shoreline, with freezing cold water year round to boot, come to this hell hole...

The only thing that happens here is a snowstorm in February.
