Most Forgotten U.S. 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.

It's pretty rural and empty. It only has two cities Lincoln (college town) Omaha (okay town) Western Nebraska is suprisingly really beautiful and the people are very friendly

Meh, I don't think it should be #1, the literal states that weren't even mentioned on this list should be higher, but Vermont should be top.

People forget Nebraska and also Iowa. They are rural boring states

This is a state, oh yeah now I remember.

2 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.

Wyoming has the fewest people (less then a million) It has two big towns: Cheyenne and Casper. Laramie is a chill college town. Wyoming is pretty beautiful, but its also really cold and really conservative

I honestly feel bad for Wyoming. It has the lowest population, the 2nd lowest GDP, and the highest suicide rate. Wyoming is a beautiful state with Yellowstone, picturesque high plains and stunning mountains. It really makes me sad, almost to the point of crying, to see a state with all of this beauty being so forgotten and underrated. I want to go here someday.

Wyoming is not actually a state. The government is faking the existence of Wyoming to cover up for something big, Area 58. Anyone that says that Wyoming is real or they have been there is lying or has been paid off my the government. I am just uncovering the truth.

I played Chandler's 6-minute state game and spent 4 of the minutes trying to remember this state. I didn't win, to say the least.

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

Kentucky is beautiful and the people are nice but its also really poor. Louisville is an okay chill, riverboat town and Lexington is known for horses. East KY is pretty sad

Tbh as someone in Kentucky we are only now for few thing KFC horse raceing and contry thing so... what can i say it pretty boring here its strange weather and tons of fast food

People know Kentucky for fried chicken, horses, and inbreeding jokes

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

Montana is rural and empty. Western Montana has the beautiful mountains, East Montana is just open land and grass. It gets pretty cold there, and it has a lot of poor native americans which is sad

It's beautiful. Hannah Montana is not from there. It's rural and empty.

I didn't even know this was a state.

What state is it?

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

I love Delaware!

I did have to tell all my friends what it was, though...

Its a small state. Suburb of Philly and DC. It has beaches and swamps and chicken farms. Wilmington is kind of hood.

The capital is dover...

This is a state?

6 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.

Beautiful state, besides mormons and potato farms. It has beautiful mountains, farm land, basically nature. It can be pretty boring and whitebread, also super conservative

What! WHY is Idaho in the top ten most forgotten states in the USA!?

7 Utah Utah is a state in the western United States. It became the 45th state admitted to the Union on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th-largest, the 31st-most populous, and the 10th-least-densely populated of the 50 United States.

Beautiful nature. Salt Lake is okay. Its not all mormon. Has a lot of open desert.

Is this even a place?

8 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.

Just cornfields mainly. Dubuque is a pretty hilly town. Iowa State Fair is nice. Has a lot of political power because its a swing state

Unless you love to stare at cornfields or sleep all the time, this is certainly a forgettable state.

I live in iowa. Everyone over passes it. Iowans are nice. We wave at any one, and if youve ever watched "A Field of Dreams" that was shot and takes place in Iowa. Also, we don't have flat lands. Its acually quite hilly. Now I'm ranting. Just remeber, never forget Iowa.

Corn, meth, and Slipknot

9 New Mexico

Breaking Bad put this poor state on the map. Has a lot of desert, mexicans, and native americans. If you like art and nature and good food, you will like NM.

Wait, this wasn't part of mexico?

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

The least visited state. Its super cold and rural. Fargo (100,000 people) is the big city. Has some nice nature in Western ND, and the people are sweet

Coldest U.S. state! But often forgotten...

Is this a state or just South Canada?

The Contenders
11 New Hampshire

Yes, it is real it is a great place. Just visit and it's very peaceful.

This state doesn't

I also live here

12 Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.
13 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.

Yes, Mississippi is forgotten and the most obese state. But since it's forgotten, that means that there isn't very many bad people. Although somebody did throw a cinder block though my 12 yr old daughters window while she was in there. Police couldn't get fingerprints because it was a "rough surface". I mean seriously police, do your job!

14 Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

Some people try to forget about WI, because winter time sucks. However, we all suffer together!

15 Vermont

I'm a Vermonter, and there are some people that think it's a town. No one even knows it was its own country!

I am in college and I just found out Vermont is a state.

Forgot this state existed!

Nobody knows this place

16 Indiana

Indiana is truly forgotten. Even though it is the host of the Indy 500, and a town that receives around one million visits, Santa Clause. In the southern half of the state there is almost no fields; It is filled with camp sites and a lot of waterfalls. Around NW Indiana there is Dunes State Park where about 10 Million people visit this every year! Also go back to Indianapolis because it his home to some of the most historical monuments. Finally, Indiana is home of one of the most common colleges in the USA, Notre Dame! Why is Indiana so forgetting.

Last time a relative called me before coming to visit from LA, they said "So Indiana is in Chicago? "
It seems that Indiana is always Chicago. What about Indianapolis?!

I lie to people and say I'm from Chicago. It's easier for them to understand.

I live in Indiana and I hate how unproblematic and forgotten we are. I wanna live somewhere where there is stuff actually going on ._.

17 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.

I don't think I even knew this state existed before yesterday... I mean, I probably did from looking at maps, lists, state flags, but forgot about it every time. So it is by far the most forgotten US state.

I live in this state, and yes it's so forgettable. This state is barley mentioned in movies, TV shows, and a lot more things

Still gets lumped in with Virginia... We are a seperate state! Not Western Virginia. West Virginia! Big difference!

I live here and it is literally so forgettable that people forget to put it on these kind of lists

18 Oklahoma

Best state there is we have the highest native Americans population than any other state,go sooner boomers!

19 Maryland Maryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Washington, D.C.

Everyone knows about Virginia and Pennsylvania, and Maryland is just that little state squished between them.

Uh, Washington D.C. is located on Maryland's soil, albeit under a federal jurisdiction.

No one knows where it is

20 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.

Only the panhandle, the peninsula is always mentioned, but I can see people thinking its more of a vacation spot than an actual state.

Not really! I mean, if anything, it's one of the most popular!

A well known state.

Obviously the most forgotten state like people forget it exists

21 Maine Maine is located in the New England region of the northeastern United States. Known for its rugged coastline, it is the easternmost state in the contiguous U.S. Its capital is Augusta, while its largest city is Portland. Maine is famous for its maritime history, as well as its seafood cuisine, particularly lobster and clams. The state's economy also relies on tourism, especially in natural areas like Acadia National Park. The official state motto is "Dirigo," which means "I direct" in Latin. The state's nickname is the "Pine Tree State" due to its extensive forests. Maine became the 23rd state to join the Union on March 15, 1820.

One of our sheriff's deputies was shot this summer (during that huge string of cop shootings) and on the news they said three officers/law workers had been murdered that week, guess who they forgot to list. (I live in maine by the way)

It's just too forgettable. Heck it's capital is named after a city in Georgia...Augusta

22 Minnesota Minnesota is a state in the Midwestern United States. Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd state on May 11, 1858, created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory.

Surprised this isn't on the list. When my mom moved to America she didn't even know what Minnesota was.

23 Rhode Island Rhode Island, officially the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, is a state in the New England region of the United States.
24 Connecticut

I honestly thought this was state was a city when I was a kid.

Just a highway from NYC and boston...

Is this state a part of New York?

The reason this isn't at the top of this list is because people couldn't remember it to vote

25 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 doesn't really stick out for anything. I'd remember Cleveland before Ohio

Wasn't this a city?
