Ohio is anything but flat. The scenery is definitely not boring. However, economy wise, NE Ohio is just an awful place to raise a family.
I think any "flat" state is boring when it comes to scenery. I loves mountains and hills and lots and lots of forest and trees. Never been a fan of cities and smog and overcrowded developments. Too many of those are sprouting up here and I've never found the appeal. I would much rather prefer a big house on several acres in the middle of nowhere with plenty of crops and livestock than a subdivision surrounded by asphalt and polluted skies and not to mention the noise. I guess "boring" is relative.

Yes, boring is 'relative' or mostly 'SUBJECTIVE". It depends on whatcha wanna do; watch tv, settle down w/family. Or make it big time in the Business industry? Boring to BE THERE? boring to LOOK AT? boring for NIGHTLIFE, DANCING? GAMBLING? SPORTS STADIUMS?

Okay, like they said ITS SUBJECTIVE...apparently looking at a big old mountain is nice for a few minutes; then what? take a pic, lets go home now.

Iowa: it's basically one giant corn field...the people seemed very nice though.

Nebraska: All but the extreme Western part with the rolling hills and buttes...flat, boring, not much going on in the rest of the state.

Kansas: All but the extreme Eastern part

Most of the central part of North Carolina is boring, but there are mountains in the west, the Outer Banks and beaches in the East, and Chapel Hill seemed like a decent place. The rest is flat and tobacco farms which is extremely boring.

Ohio isn't too bad, either. It has some flat areas, but also forests, cities, and a Great Lake.
