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 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 NO. Cal. (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 yrs and there is NO state more boring than Nebraska!

I knew a friend going to Nevada, who they wanted to go to a Denny's. They skipped one and said they would go 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.

Nebraska will almost always be the last state you can name when you try and list every state, if you can name it at all. oh yeah, it's the state above Kansas, right? (I know that because of the Scrambled States of America book :) Even its name sounds boring. Nuh-Brass-Kuh. NUUBRRAAASKKKAAA

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.

Are you kidding me? This is the most boring state in the Midwest. This state has the most boring scenery and theirs nothing to see or do besides look at prairies, view the flat landscape, and watch Wheat fields being harvested. This state needs to be swapped places as number 1 most boring!

Western Kansas is yes boring but the Northeastern part of the state is very beautiful known as the flint hills.

Can't beat the sunsets but you can't not beat litteraly every other detail about it. "Kansas, where you can watch your dog run away for a week"

Yeah it can be kinda boring. There's no tourist attractions here

3 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?

If you think this state is boring, you haven't been there.

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

4 Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

If you're not an outdoorsman, it's the most boring state in the U.S. And considering 90% of the Arkansas population is obese, there really aren't THAT many outdoors people here.

Arkansas is actually more interesting than most give credit for. I've lived here all my life and have not seen all the wonders there are to see yet.

Anyone with more than 3 brain cells would be bored to tears living this hellhole of a state

5 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 size city, there is virtually nothing fun to do. The few bars that every Des Moiner 21 and over seem to crowd into every weekend are about as exciting as you get; and most of them are redneck bars and a couple 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 painting of cornfields art, forget it. 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 ...more

I live in Iowa. I still love Iowa, and think it is not completely boring, but most of the time I go out of state for fun. Probally also because I live really close to Minnesota's and South Dakota's border.

Hmm... it's not boring

*watches farmers farm corn while crying*

This is a joke. Don't get all sensitive

I mean, there's nothing more boring than a state famous for corn.

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

Hey, don't mess with Texas! Texas is actually the best state!
Most boring state is Massachusetts.

Boring as hell

Aw, that sucks

7 Oklahoma

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

I live at the edge of Edmond, where I live is a fun place.

Nothing to do here

8 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.

There are many great attractions and activities to do in Georgia!

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

I have only been to Delaware once so, I can't really speak that much about it, but they have a REALLY nice mall! And the state is SUPER small and you can drive through it really fast.

I'm about to have a tournament in Deleware 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.

10 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.

The Contenders
11 Indiana

I cannot believe that I had to vote for this to talk. I have been here since I was four, and I am twelve now. I have been to many, many fun places in Indiana. I live in southern Indiana, and there is a VR gaming place, a trampoline park, FREAKING HOLIDAY WORLD, multiple water parks and the best school in the world, Lanesville Elementary. So no, Indiana is not boring, zand it should not be this high.

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/ family vacation. There are no water parks or amusement parks. Indiana is only made for people over 21 because there's are casinos and bars almost everywhere. If there are adults who have kids under 21, I would not recommend living in Indiana, especially 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.

Nothing but flatland cornfields. In the winter there is no sun. Nothing to do but watch wood dry. Summers are so humid especially in the southern part of the state. Basically like an extended Florida. People are raw and self-centered.

I live here in Indianapolis and I think its pretty fun, you can go to the Indy 500 but ya it can get boring sometimes. where I live there is less and less cornfields.

12 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.

Jackson Hole is one of greatest ski resorts in the country, people are incredibly nice and has a fun town outside of resort. Look forward to going back. Haven't been to Yellowstone but I plan to

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?

13 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.

Like half the state there is absolutly 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.

14 South Dakota

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

Very much so agreed

Yeah, pretty much.

15 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.
16 Kentucky Kentucky, officially the Commonwealth of Kentucky, is a state located in the east south-central region of the United States.

I live in Kentucky and I love it. It is so beautiful. There is so much to do here and the people who live here are so sweet and I don't know how this state got so close to the top because it is amazing! I would really recommend visiting here.

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!

Louisville is not like any other major city, it is FUN! KFC is good!

17 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.

Not really that boring if you're into nice scenery and beautiful forests. There's lots of history and culture in Birmingham and Mobile as well. Definitely not as exciting as California or New York, but as far as southern states go there are a lot worse.

If you like racism and rednecking to where no one judges you, Alabama's the place to live. I've lived there for 18 years, and all I saw were rednecks, and beers. Beautiful scenery, though. I would go out, and play around with my friensds in feils, and woods for miles away from my home, in the mid-70's.

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 back woods yee yee boi truck driving.

Wrong! The most boring state is Massachusetts!

Mediocre in every aspect

Boring. Nothing to do

19 Connecticut

Boring state filled with boring people. All this state has to offer is endless highway filled with trees and service plazas.

This state offers nothing boring, expensive and discriminative entertainment, and 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 place you can be free from stuck up people but they're filled with crime, unemployment, and rude people with filthy streets that's been abandoned by the state with goes along with the "criminal" stigma for people from those cities in other parts of the state. In order to live decent here you have to afford a 500k+ home 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.

I have lived in Connecticut for the majority of my life and there is absolutely nothing special or cool going on here whatsoever. There are small cities which are all very gross, poor and offer nothing special/interesting at all. The beaches are boring as hell and there is pretty much nothing in the northern part of the state but empty famland. The southern part of the state is just traffic and ugly cities with very annoying people. We have some good colleges but that's pretty much it. I don't recommend living here it is boring as hell. I'm surprised this isn't higher on the list.

I moved here from Massachusetts. I only live here because of work. People could be nice in Connecticut but not very inviting, they keep to themselves. Their idea of entertainment is to sleep all the time, or if not sleeping, just eating and shopping.

You rarely see people walking for exercise around here for themselves. They need an accessory like a dog or baby to walk around. Lots of unhealthy people. People of the same sex are rude, staring at you, very uncomfortable if you are not gay.

20 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...

How is it boring? Cedar Point is located here. There, debunked your comments!

Where the sun hardly shines and the weather is neurotic.

Absolutely nothing to do especially with winter being depressing

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

Dude, Montana is not boring, it's beautiful. And the downtown scene in Missoula is extremely lively, not to mention in there are both winter, and summer activities. Winters usually consist of skiing or snowboarding and summers are for rafting and camping and other fun activities. But sure, call it boring.

Never live here

22 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...

Sorry people of Idaho, I find it outrageous you are this low but it's just who your below

They should call it New California 2 with all the Californians moving here

23 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.

The best state you could ever visit there are so many things to do such as the secret amusement parks and water parks. There is also a Disneyland around summers county west Virginia. I highly recommend going to McDowell county it is safe

Literally nothing to do. Unless you like mudding

Nothing to do

24 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.

What is wrong with you people? I mean sure there are too many transplants but still this place has universal! It was probably a Florida hater who added this

Blame the transplants from New York, Massachusetts, and the Northeast for making this state terrible.

25 Vermont

Come on, Vermont's not boring. I've been there and it's fun to ski down the mountains.

It can't be that boring if the people there do whacky stuff with syrup.

Vt blows. To me it's the worst state In the usa. And super liberal and expensive, Cold and rains all the time

Not fun at all
