With 50 states, the United States of America is the third largest country in the world. Among these states, some are less popular among the crowd. Here, we list the five most forgettable states in America. 

Do you live in one of those places? Read on to find out!

1. Delaware

Someone commented, “As soon as I thought Delaware I immediately thought the top few answers would be Delaware as well.”

Delaware was the first U.S. state to sign the United States Constitution, which is why it is nicknamed “The First State.” It is the only U.S. state with no National Park System, including seashores, historic sites, monuments, memorials, and national parks. But, it does have Dover International Speedway, where fans watch NASCAR races.

2. North Dakota

One user mentioned, “You joke, but the Dakotas are geographically, culturally and economically better split as West and East. But because there’s fewer than 2 million people between both states, nobody cares about the rivalry.”

South Dakota is one of the two states, with North Dakota being the other. The “Crazy Horse Memorial,” still being carved up to this day and will rise to a height of 563 feet once finished, can be found here.

3. New Hampshire

Another commented, “I forget about new hampshire a lot”

Declared the ninth U.S. state, New Hampshire is also called “the Granite State” because of its history as granite mining. It is the fifth-smallest state in the U.S., with 22 unincorporated areas, more than ten municipalities, 221 towns, and ten counties.

If you visit New Hampshire, you should try out their maple sundaes and cider donuts, as they are the most popular desserts in the state.

4. Idaho 

Someone mentioned, “should be called Idano.”

Idaho is renowned for producing high-quality potatoes. Moreover, it is home to the world’s tallest western white pine, standing 219 feet – taller than Cinderella’s castle at Disney World!

Although it is one of the most forgettable states in America, someone shared, “I visited Idaho a few years back and loved it. Beautiful state, Boise had a really neat vibe to it compared to most other states I’ve visited.”

5. Nebraska

Someone commented, “I would have to go with Nebraska, I just cant think of a single distinctive thing about it. Nebraska defines the middle of no where for me.”

Here, the High Plains Aquifer is an underground water supply that makes Nebraska’s lush soil ideal for crop growth. For this reason, this state is referred to as the “breadbasket of America.”

You can also find “Archie” – the biggest mammoth skeleton on display – at the University of Nebraska State Museum.

States Worth Remembering

Although considered the least memorable states in America, Delaware, South Dakota, New Hampshire, Idaho, and Nebraska each boast unique and noteworthy features.
