Sort of like the Boston Subway.MTA......used to be, EH ? Thats too bad. Sherman burnt it down once , and , they just had..to rebuild it. Some other great places you could go , are, Grady Hospital- fun place to watch all the gang sparing events,Atlanta Airport terminal- to watch em tow away all the parked cars,De kalb County Court House- theres always a shooting going on,and , when you finally get out of playing in the traffic , the Buckhead Dinner , tell em I sent ya......great food .

Monumental1, I never called you boring. I responded to your post about Oregon because you keep knocking it and it's residents down while building up Seattle and yourself. And my response to your post wasn't even negative, just a point. And you call me pathetic.

And the tread is stupid. No one here is expert enough to call a whole state boring. And you're making your judgement from an interstate highway.

Let's leave it alone. Deal??

why would anybody knock Oregon...nice coast, Portland is a nice city, Eugene is a great place to go to College, Eastern Oregon is wonderful. Seattle is in the fine state of Washington which is equilly as great a state. The Washington State Coast line is not a nice as Oregon though. My favorite city is Bellingham.

The banter over Oregon has been, if nothing else, somewhat entertaining, and actually quite enlightening.

That said, my two cents is this: Oregon is definitely NOT the most boring state, especially if you are of the fly-fishing persuasion like myself.

Agreed with all those who feel this thread, as well as the "Which state could the U.S. live without" thread are really just pretty dumb.

I thought Bellingham was a real nice city. Spent a few days there , and , fresh berries , WOW ! Everywhere, farmers market , had raspberries the size of thimbles. Then there was a little deli type place in a strip mall ,......the best fresh red raspberry pie, with a choc. covered crust base , and , I swear , it was 10" high.!........nice shops , quaint, ( sort of ), lots of hippies ,.....but ,. I could live there I think.

Alright, this is my thing; I live in the supposed most boring state ever: Oregon, and I simply love it here. Now, I have also lived in Montana too, and while I didn't enjoy living there, because the lack of cities, I can honestly say that it's a state filled with beauty and many outdoor activities. I have never been in a state with more outdoor enthusiasts than Montana. In the Summer, we'd all get together with a bunch of tubes, tie them together, throw some beer in the middle, and float down the river. It was a lot of fun. I really don't think there's such thing as a boring state, honestly.

Different people prefer to live in different environments. Some like big cities with museums, restaurants, shopping and all that. Some prefer to live away from traffic, noise, crowds and all that. They may like to visit bigger cities, maybe not. That's okay.

But to say that a whole state is boring is just uneducated ranter. And to say you don't like a state because of what you saw from your car on an interstate is just idiotic. And especially so if you haven't been to all the areas of all fifty states.
