Those picture are of OK landscapes that wouldn't even rate in the top 100 places in most states.

Yes, been halfway through the state going eastbound on I-94. I dunno...maybe I don't know everything about it...just basing my opinion on what I've seen. I guess I never bothered to stop and ask North Dakotans what there is to do. So hey, maybe there is stuff to do there that I don't know about. It's not an ugly state by any means, the rolling prairies are very pretty to me. Some of North Dakota in it's extreme western parts has very interesting terrain from what I recall...looks kinda mountainous like Montana. It'd be a peaceful place to live that's for sure. I just wouldn't want to be buried under 20 feet of snow in the winter....summertime it's great...winter there are better places than this state. I guess I agree with Steve-O's comment that sometimes nothing is great. However, in the case of Kansas, I'd have to say that is a pretty boring state. Kansas and Oklahoma I think would be on the low end of the totem pole for me. I'm also not too fond of Arkansas either.

I don't really think any state I've spent time in is "bad." For me, even the worst city and state in the US is better than other cities and countries in the world where I've been.

Now, I'll pick a few cities where I'd care not to go back, but not a whole state!
EHh...I kind of feel that way too. Even the states on the low end of the totem poles aren't bad. I guess every state has its own thing to offer. The Glorious 50 each individually make the U.S. what it is.

Great photos. I have always found Oklahoma to have a distinct attractive charm.

I can respect that. I'm not that fond of KS or AR either . Really though, I havent even been to much ND, but i went to the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt NP, I was amazed! HUGE fields of Flowers with cliffs right next to them. It was so peaceful. Thats the only reason I feel I have to back up ND. And sorry if I came of mean

N. Dak and Kan. are boring, but not bad places to live. Alot of people like the solitude and freedon. We all say how boring and flat they are, but alot of people claim nostalgia for the Old West (what did they think exactly it was?) That flatness has fed America for a century. No, bad places to live have bad (not "boring") qualities. The poverty rate in Kentucky, the obesity rate in Alabama, the illiteracy rates in Ariz. and Tex. I'll take Fargo any day.
