The deffinition of boring is the subjective thing. Some (me) were thinking that boring is no culture events or no night life, nothing to do. etc., etc.. While others were coming from the lack of diverse scenery or it's "flatness". One man's mountain is another's big rocky thing.

LOL!!! Good one, and so true! I'm no nature fan either, so I thought the OP meant boring from the culture and nightlife angle. Guess "boring" is like beauty... it's in the eye of whoever's looking at it.

The answer is North Dakota. No major cities, not that many minor cities, and utter flatness until you hit the Roosevelt park area in the far west.

"Most of California is pretty boring"

I never thought of California as boring. Even people who hate it usually describe it as "crazy" not boring.

Boring, as in not much to do, either city or outdoors-type activities [not counting the country's wonderful farm folks! ]:

Much of Kansas, North Dakota, and Iowa
Western Texas [wow!! look, another tumbleweed!!! ]
Eastern Colorado and South Dakota
Various parts of IL [mid] and MO [north]

Give me a city, I'll find a local pub, throw back a few pints, see some live music, dance, eat tasty vittles, seeing some sports, etc.
Give me wild woolly outdoors, and I'll hike till my boots fall off, chasing waterfalls, climbing hills, dipping toes in streams, collecting rocks, watching critters.
Take me to flat lands with unending waves of corn, beans, milo, etc., and,,, and,, uhmmmm,,, watch me go comatose...

Ummm,,, I'm just gonna go out on a limb here, and of the four he mentioned {Illinois, s. dakota, california, texas}, I am throw a guess that the one that is not one of the greatest would be the last one he listed?
