If you like big cities with tons of food and culture to explore, there are plenty of destinations in the US where you won’t be at a loss for things to do. But if you like taking life at a slower pace, these “boring” cities might be worth a visit.
Our sister site Business Insider created a list of the most boring place in every state. To create this list, they counted the number of establishments for 66 different types of businesses that make a city “interesting” like breweries, art dealers, and museums with data from the Census Bureau’s 2015 County Business Patterns program. They then picked the metro areas with the lowest count of these businesses to determine the most boring place to live in each state.
This list defines cities by each of the 381 Metropolitan Statistical Areas recognized by the federal government. Rhode Island blog home and deco Vermont didn’t make the cut because they don’t have at least two metro areas according to this definition.
