Top Ten U.S. States That Deserve More Attention

There are 50 states in America, and most of us most likely haven't visited all of them (that would be fun though). There are states that are overrated, and some that are underrated, and these states should be visited more often!

The Top Ten

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

Montana has lots of interesting mountains, including Glacier National Park, and a little bit of Yellowstone. There are some areas that are a kinda boring, but the mountainous areas are amazing! You could go skiing, take hikes, swim in the lakes, you name it! Billings is very interesting, Missoula is in the middle of the mountains, Great Falls not too far away from the mountains, the state has a lot to offer.

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 is home to Yellowstone, a tiny bit of the Black Hills, and many rugged mountains. Its pretty much like Montana, you can do hiking, skiing, that sort of stuff. But like Montana, there are some areas that are pretty boring if you avoid the mountains.

It's pretty much just natural scenery and resource extraction here. The land deserves attention. But the people? Aside from the westerner cowpokes and people in the resource extraction business, western Wyoming (Teton County especially) has a fair bit of snobby rich people who moved there for the scenery. Like all rich people they are snobby and deserve no attention. The volcano under their feet deserves more attention than the rest of the state as it's a really really big supervolcano. - bagel

3 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.

Another state similar to Montana. You get to do skiing, hiking, driving, and even swimming. Idaho has very pretty mountains, mostly in the central part and the northern part. It has very interesting cities: Boise is home to the things you need, and Coeur d'Alene is very pretty, with a big lake on the south.

Severely underrated. - BrideiMacBella

4 South Dakota

You have the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, and the valleys in the Eastern part of the state. It's a very interesting place, and I like how the climate all of a sudden changes when you go from one part of the state to the other, but its like that in all the prairie states.

5 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.

Utah has the mountains, Bryce Canyon National Park, Snow Canyon State Park, the Great Salt Lake, and the Salt Lake City area. All those pretty much contribute to an interesting U.S. state. You can do hiking in the Wasatch Range, sled, skii, that sort of stuff.

6 Massachusetts Massachusetts, officially the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is the most populous state in the New England part of the northeastern region of the United States.

Massachusetts has very interesting hiking trails, skiing in the mountains, going for a drive, and Boston, home of my favorite baseball team, the Red Sox. You should visit Massachusetts in the fall, oh man it is BEAUTIFUL!

7 Washington Washington is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States located north of Oregon, west of Idaho, and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. It is the only state named after a president.
8 Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

Pretty much like Massachusetts, Wisconsin has many types of cheeses, interesting hiking trails, Lake Michigan, and lets not forget Milwaukee, home of the Brewers.

9 Vermont

Vermont is like the ski/snowboard capital of the US and it is so peaceful there and the scenery is breath taking it deserves much more credit - Idiot

Vermont is the home state of our 46th president (or 47th if Trump leaves in favor of Pence) - bagel

Vermont may seem plain and all, but it has very interesting scenery, many things to do in Burlington, and basically has similar places to go and things to do as Massachusetts, considering the fact that they're part of New England.

10 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.

Tennessee is for the music lovers, especially in Nashville. Besides that, you get to do skiing, sledding, swimming, hiking, find things to do in the biggest cities in the state, etc.

The Contenders

11 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.

12 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, more.

It may seem like a poor state and kinda boring, but West Virginia has beautiful mountains, places to swim, and has very beautiful falls like New England, with all the different colors of leaves and trees.

13 New York New York is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic Region. New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States. With an estimated 19.54 million residents in 2018, it is the fourth most populous state. In order to distinguish the state from the city with the same name, it is more.

What do u mean this is the most populated state - top10epic

Upstate new york is badly underrated because it's always overshadowed by the city. It's home to the largest state park in the country and many small cities like Albany, Rochester, Buffalo, Binghamton, Utica, among others. - bagel

14 Oregon Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Oregon is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by Washington, on the south by California, on the east by Idaho, and on the southeast by Nevada.

The state capital is Sacramento, and the largest city is Los Angeles. more.

21 Nevada Nevada is a state in the Western, Mountain West, and Southwestern regions of the United States of America.

25 Florida
