If you want credibility in this forum, you'll need to be more forthcoming.

Iowa, lived next to that state most of my life and never had any reason to go there.... and when I did, I realized why.

Idaho, seems very bland, not alot of things that interest me there.... not to mention driving through and seeing nothing, even when I stopped in Boise.

That's my opinion though. Enough people said they thought Nebraska was boring and didn't give any reasons. Nebraska has way more natural beauty than Iowa, and Iowa well... it's just In Omaha Without Asking.... just kidding about that, just a high school joke.

North Dakota, nothing to do past 11pm except WalMart and Perkins.

Nothing to do during the day but exist.

lol, Ive lived in places where going to walmart was the big even fo the evening. Going to the movies was a once a month thrill. I usually got dressed up for it.

Strange, now that I live in Phoenix, I don't want to do any of the new and excitiing things I moved here for. I guess, to quote Shawshank Redemption, a man gets institutionalized.

I don't know what you are smoking...Iowa has far more beauty and charm than Nebraska. Hills and bluffs, trees, real lakes, and historic old towns and it isn't all spread out over a vast flat empty space. Go to Royalty Free Photo Offers Truth & Beauty in Dynamic Digital Photography and look around. (I have no affiliation with that site, just found it while Googling)

I could say the same about Nebraska...

here i'll post some links too...

Visit Nebraska - Photo Gallery

Nebraska Pictures - USA stock photos, fine art prints by QTL

Nebraska Travels - Insider Nebraska Vacations Guide - Reviews - Discounts - Tips - Pictures. The Western Nebraska Sandhills & More



Im not hating I just find Iowa incredibly boring in MY opinion. Different strokes.

Iowa has more natural scenic beauty than NB. Born and razed there , and.......couldn't wait to " get out ! " between two rivers , there is a lot to see, a lot the same , but , along the rivers , quite scenic.
