Delaware rated ‘Most forgettable US state’ with landslide numbers
In a recent survey, Delaware was voted as ‘The most forgettable US state.’ This rather unfortunate poll took place on Reddit which gained a total of 861 votes. In total, Delaware gained 290 votes as the leader. In second place was Iowa with 217 of the votes. The rest of the votes were divided by Indiana, Missouri, Rhode Island, and Nevada.
Unfortunately, Delaware has had this image for decades and although it is very safe and friendly compared to other states, it is often viewed as a little boring. Responding to these findings, one user claimed: “It’s always been like this. Hung out with a group of a dozen fellow teens on vacation in 1985 in the Poconos. They were all from northern NJ, NYC, and Long Island. Not one of them knew where Delaware was. At least Arizona is 3000 miles away. They’re probably all living here now.”
Unfortunately, Delaware is often overlooked in favor of its larger, more populous neighbors, such as Pennsylvania and New Jersey, which have bigger cities and more well-known cultural landmarks. Additionally, Delaware’s lack of professional sports teams may contribute to the perception that it is less exciting than other states. However, those who have visited or lived in Delaware know that there’s more to the state than meets the eye. From tax-free shopping to beautiful beaches, Delaware has plenty to offer visitors and residents alike.
