What are your top places that you (as an American) currently have no desire to see? Remember these have to be places you haven't visited yet.

My list is:
-Alabama
-Mississippi
-Texas
-Indiana
-Hawaii
-Kentucky

If you haven't visited a place then how do you know that you have no desire to visit it? There are worthwhile cities/towns/destinations in all 50 states.

I'll give you Indiana, but the rest of them are interesting.

The only one I really have no desire to visit is Nebraska. I drive through the whole state horizontally a couple of times every year. It's pretty boring. Even Omaha, the big city isn't very nice. It's just full of nasty people who smoke cigarettes.

Hawaii
California (no desire but I have a family member there in college but I have no choice)
Oregon
Washington
Colorado
New Mexico

States that I have been to that we're duds:
Georgia (hated Atlanta so much)
NC (Charlotte..yuck)
Maryland (Few pretty rich places, mostly ghetto)
DC (same, unimpressive looking and everyone was either pretentious or ghetto)
Illinois (cornfields and urban blight. The Northside of Chicago was nice but not enough to make up for all the yuck. Everything nice about IL besides a very small chunk of Chicago also exists in Indiana with half the crime and blight)
Vermont (you can get all the same scenery and much nicer less communist/yuppie people across the border in New Hampshire)

People are weird. Most people don't even leave their homes nowadays, since they telecommute.

I want to see the whole world personally, even the bottom of the sea (if I could).

Indianapolis is a fun city. Also, there are some amazing state parks are forests in the southern third of the state. Also, there are some cheese producers down there doing some neat things. Plus, who can resist a tenderloin sandwich?

Now, Northern Indiana, however.... Besides the dunes, I'm having a hard time thinking of anything worth getting out of the car to see or do.

Anyway, back to the original post, of all the places in the country where I've never been, I'd probably say that I'd be least excited to visit the Texas Panhandle, but I'm sure I could find fun/quirky things to do there.

Northern Indiana is probably the best part of Indiana. I would imagine it's not very touristy, but you get all the benefits of being near Chicago like the job market and cultural opportunities, with none of the downsides of Illinois like crazy taxes, corruption, high home prices etc.

You can buy a nice home for 150 grand with $2000 per year taxes and great schools in Dyer, Indiana and have a 25 minute commute to the Loop in DT Chicago..all pluses no minuses.

States I have no desire to visit, in no particular order:

-Alabama
-Mississippi
-Arkansas
-Oklahoma
-Missouri
-Iowa
-Nebraska
-North Dakota
-Kansas
-Ohio
-Indiana

If I never return to Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Georgia, or North Carolina, I'll live.

I'd probably only willingly return to Texas for Austin and San Antonio, and Illinois for Chicago.

I have no desire to visit any of the cities in Michigan, but I hear some areas of the state are intensely beautiful such as the Upper Peninsula coastline.

I'm on the fence with regard to Kentucky and West Virginia. I don't like or appreciate the cultures of those states, but I hear they are both very naturally beautiful in many areas. If the opportunity presents itself, perhaps, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way.
