22 Indiana Indiana

Indiana somehow there worse than Arkansas.

White trash Nascar fans - olliv

As a Hoosier, I am glad this isn't top 10. I like it here!

Meh. I disagree. Indiana is a GREAT place to live!

23 Ohio 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.
24 Washington 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.

Washington is a beautiful country. It has great landforms and good cities. What's strange is that most of days are cold and rainy but not a lot of snow in the winter.

Washington is one of the most beautiful states in the country. Seattle is a great city, there are mountains, deserts, lakes, the ocean, caves, forests, plus lots of things to do. The only problem is the hipsters! - olliv

Washington is filled with beautiful landscapes, trees, and national parks, and it's filled with every type of land form

If you like terrible people, dreary weather and corrupt government officials (amongst many other things), then Washington is the state for you! - SamanthaW

25 Missouri 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.

The people writing this probably don't even live in Missouri because you all are complaining about the humidity then don't live next to the Missouri River if you're going to complain

The humidity is insufferable...

New Madrid Earthquakes

St Louis and KC that's literally it outside of Branson.People here are just rude - Randomator

26 Wyoming 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.

Less people is less problems.

Just like Montana, just not as pretty and even more boring. - olliv

Isn't there a reason why there's less people, though?

Yes there is. It's boring, expensive, and and everyone from there is weird. - olliv

27 Rhode Island 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.

Very populated for such a small state

Very small size state to live

Whats rhode island? nobody knows about it

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

Cobb county sucks but some parts in Cobb county are good stay out of south Cobb county

Georgia is over rated crime have got bad since a lot of people come from out of town
Every time you turn on news crime.
If u move here don't stay in the city of Down town Atlanta. School System sucks

Nobody says that Georgia is the worst state.NOBODY! >:(

I love it here!

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

I Have been to all 50 states at least TWICE in my adult life and can say without reservation that Wisconsin is one of the best run, most organized, cleanest, and enjoyable parts of the country. Even the weather is not too bad 9/12 of the year (no hurricanes, small earth tremors, seldom drought, only humidity and the occasional blizzard). Wisconsin is on the cutting edge of education, economics, tourism, politics, cheese, and beer. No other state in the union has as much going for it!

Wisconsin is nice. it is just weather the weather is kinda bad

Wisconsin still has nice spots but Walker has definitely hurt the education system and work environment. Their SAT scores went from 2nd highest in the nation to 41st in one year! Losing jobs at an alarming rate.

Disgusting people.

30 West Virginia West Virginia

Saddest state according to numerous sources

Most depressing state in the nation

This is my state, and yep. It is extremely depressing, there is nothing to's just like a wasteland. I will leave as soon as I can.

It's boring. - Drewman1211

31 Utah 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 is actually a great place to live and visit. Greatest snow on Earth for skiing/snowboarding. More National Parks than any other state besides California. Great place to raise a family. Low amount of natural disasters. Good economy. Good Universities. Gorgeous Mountains in the north and vast deserts in the south. Very diverse landscape.

Utah should be at number 50 because it's the best state. - Heyo_Simba

Oh come on! What can you call a state that is unwelcoming to outsiders (especially of other religious beliefs - be it atheist or Southern Baptist) and has very strict alcohol laws.

Too many mormons, too many police, too many criminals...

32 South Carolina South Carolina South Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state is bordered to the north by North Carolina, to the south and west by Georgia across the Savannah River, and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean.

It may have Charleston and Hilton Head, but don't let that fool you; this place is an economic wasteland

South Carolina SUCKS. NC is so much better. SC has an overwhelming amount of poverty, rednecks, crime, humidity, high taxes, and boring-ness.

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

I forgot Montana existed for a while and I lived there for 20 years! It's a lame and boring state full of drunken trailer trash and rich, old retired people. Billings is a poverty hellhole full of crime and drug addicts. Probably one of the worst major cities in The United States. Horribly laid out, with absolutely nothing to do or see involving the city itself.

The rest of the state isn't so bad as long as your FILTHY RICH. People here are also terrible drivers and incredibly boring! All they ever talk about is Montana, because that's all they know about.

The reason Montana has so many people in bad living conditions is because real estate is outrageously overpriced. A trailer costs about a jaw dropping $300,000 in some areas. Not a middle class friendly state. You're either poor or rich here. - olliv

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

Kentucky is the best state in the south. How dare you! - olliv

35 Connecticut Connecticut

Connecticut's own mayor Daniel Malloy has raised taxes when he promised not to, The states has closed down most of it's historical places just to generate money. Connecticut is one of the highest states with the worst crime. Even though it is wholesome and friendly it's just not a great place to raise children. The state itself is going broke, and It doesn't have religious value. It's the worst state t

Basically the better version of New York. But don't plan on living there too long - high taxes, crap real estate, and all that. - JustAnAccount

36 Virginia Virginia Virginia, officially the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a state located in the South Atlantic region of the United States.

It Lit

37 Colorado 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.

Everyone here is weird, has a full tattoo sleeve and smokes marijuana. The Broncos suck! Colorado's flag sucks! Colorado sucks! - olliv

Come on, you have to admit that we have it better here, than in places like New Jersey or Kansas. - RogerWatersfan1999

Colorado sucks

so do you

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

Was born in Fargo, and that's the only North Dakota city I'd ever live in.

This state sucks in the same way as Kansas. - RogerWatersfan1999

Move here to see drunk Native Americans. - olliv

39 North Carolina 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.

North Carolina is great...I've lived in the mountains my whole life and I love it, I've also gone out to the beach at Oak Island almost every summer, absolutely beautiful.

WHAT? I live in North Raleigh. Family-friendly, suburban, no crime, no rednecks, lots to do, and no crime. It's also beautiful here.

North Carolina rules good weather cities beaches mountains state university etc

This state is the best and we have nice drivers - not too bad rank 20 below is bad

40 South Dakota South Dakota

Does have the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore. So, a small portion of the state is worth mentioning (plus it takes forever to get there).

South Dakota is slightly less worse than North Dakota because of Mount Rushmore. - olliv
