yeah I guess there's that little bit that sticks out to the east that many people drive through when traveling between Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. But at most they might stop to visit a gas station or convenience store.

They are missing some great hiking and white water rafting. Getting to the Carolinas or VA from OH, MI, IN, Western PA or NY etc nearly requires travel through WV.

Delaware is in a similar situation. I wonder how many people included Delaware because of a trip on I-95 or a stop on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor rather than an actual visit to the state. I don't know anyone besides vacationers from DC and Maryland and a couple of corporate lawyers who have actually visited Delaware.

Not really. It's unusual to pass through Kansas on the way to somewhere else because it's so large. Far more common to fly over it than travel through it, I would imagine.

Maine, on the other hand, is a popular vacation destination and not very far from major population centers like Boston.

Hawaii is a huge vacation spot though. And someone not from the US is more likely to visit an extremely popular vacation place than a random spot in the midwest

So less than 10% of "state map filler outers" have been to South Dakota? Bummer. Really owe it to yourselves to spend a bit of time at Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills. Seriously beautiful country, the Badlands are amazing, and some really cool caving as well.

It is extremely difficult for most of us to get to Mt. Rushmore. I believe the closest truly decent-sized airport is Minneapolis, which is an 8-hour drive away.

South Dakota campaigned to get Mount Rushmore put there precisely because there's no other reason to visit.

Me too. We go there almost every year. There is a lot of fun touristy stuff to do around the area and it's not very expensive. But we also only live about 4 hours away so that helps.

I'm really skeptical about a couple of these. Maine, Rhode island and Delaware are tiny and/or really out of the way. I've always heard people say I saw all the New England states in a single day. Maybe it's a matter of perception. To me visited means that you walked outside for a couple of hours, but some may think as long as my car or train went through it or my plane landed there it counts while others might say visited only happens after spending a couple of days. One thing that might skew numbers is foreign travelers. You can fly into New York get a car and hit about 15 states in a week. For someone that might never come back to the country that sounds a lot more appealing than flying into Houston driving the same distance and not hitting another state.

Those state are also close to the most densely-populated area of the country, and they're small, which helps. Lots of people from Boston dip into the other New England states because they're easy to hit. Providence is a 45-minute train ride from Boston. When I lived in Boston, sometimes we'd take the train to Providence just to do something new. Ditto New Hampshire. You've got the skiing in Vermont. Leafpeeping in Maine. People from New York and New Jersey come up with ease too. That area is so tiny that you can drive from anywhere. Compare that to the states on this list, all of which are sparsely populated, enormous (i.e., it's unlikely you'll just pop into and out of one), and whose biggest cities are not really driving distance from any population centers. It's a much bigger commitment to get to them, so fewer people make the effort.

Seems pretty accurate. I've been to all but 10 states, and 7 of those are in this list. @idontkn1: Maine, Rhode Island, and Delaware are all close to major metropolitan areas, so get a lot of visitors. Maine is the most out of the way, but it still isn't too far from Boston and has Acadia National Park, which is the 7th most visited national park in the country. Rhode Island is an hour or so from Boston, and you have to pass through Delaware to get from Baltimore/DC to Philadelphia/NYC, so almost anyone who lives in any of those cities passes through Delaware pretty regularly.

Genuine question, not trying to be rude. But for those of you who live in these states, why? These all fit the bill of states that if you can leave, you do. But surely that isn't everyone? I'm from Pennsylvania, and other than the two major cities everybody I know just wants to leave. And PA certainly has more to do than North Dakota or Mississippi. Looking for some insight.

There are plenty of dive bars to get black out drunk at 8am in any town in north dakota if the population is over 10,000 (there are a few of them and I made a quiz about it), so there is that to do. You're not rude though, I left because, yes, I could and did. Many are flocking there because of jobs though which encouraged me to leave even more. There is much good there to be fair, but I like the travel lifestyle.
