Top 10 Most Boring States in the U.S. to Live In*Yawn*, I would be bored of living in these states!
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.
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!
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.
Can anyone here name anything special about this boring state?
Don't know how this state isn't number 1 most boring!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Worst place ever! Or is it my town? I don't know, just really boring.
Nothing to do here.
Of course, it's boring if you're outside of Mount Rushmore.
Very much so agreed.
Yeah, pretty much.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Literally nothing to do unless you like mudding.
Nothing to do.
I guess I could munch on potatoes...
Missouri has two big cities, and the rest of it is boring. The Ozarks are pretty, but North Missouri is just corn and meth.
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.
