New Jersey for people and environment.

People are total assholes 24/7, and they give zero shits about how their state looks.

I vacation in seaside heights sometimes for the boardwalk and people are horrendous to deal with.

Story time.

I was doing the football toss while my wife, mother in law, aunt in law, and wife's cousin were behind me. Some teen kid with his mom comes up and he throws a bullet at the tire. It bounces out and hits my mother in law in her shoulder that has severe nerve damage and falls into my two year olds head while he is asleep in his stroller. Needless to say I didn't know anything happened until I was done throwing. Apparently, the kids mom said "well, you shouldn't have been standing there."

I tried finding them. I did not find them. It's a good thing.

If you draw a line from South Dakota to Texas, and count everything east of that, except Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine, then add in Nevada and California, you'll have all 38 states I have been through.

Just on environment alone, I would say it's a toss-up between Alabama and Mississippi for the worst. Missouri comes close. As for people, the northern part of Jersey and all of Philly takes the cake.

It's not even close. And don't get me started about south of New Orleans in the bayou. I spent many a week in Louisiana for work.
Agreed. We got stuck in Monroe. Horrible

the entire state is a hell hole

If there is one tourist trap/attraction that hurts SC, it's South of the Border. Can you really call anyone else trashy with that place contaminating my home state?

Thing about Florida though, is that it's full of out of state folks. The saying goes "When someone says they are from Florida, you ask where are they originally from?"

I've been thinking about starting a rumor among Islamic extremists to make them believe that South of the Border is one of the most beloved places on American soil so that they will "take care of it" for us.

How is your opinion so well received with Islamic terrorists that they take your word as fact?

Let me just call the FBI.........

While the percentage of natives here is around 20%, I do know a handful of folks here who are actually native.

Louisiana, Mississippi, the Carolinas... it's really a shame that we have such off putting residents who live all across the United States.

I saw some real ruffians last night watching the ISU game. So from that I'm going to also nominate Iowa.

FL more so than AZ. Both states are magnets for retirees and snowbirds, but FL was always more populated with native Floridians, especially N FL and the panhandle.

Default Re: Trashiest state in the US?

I would have to say New Jersey first as most of the people there are rude and crude. State is pretty much a dump and I never could understand why it was called "The Garden State", but there were a few nice spots along the coast during the summer months.

Florida would be my next place to list. There are some very rude people there that are very dangerous with a shopping cart!!!
