If all Oklahomans shared one single thought, it has to be the belief that life is better in the bigger cities.

"Nothing ever happens in ________" That's the number one complaint I hear and read on social media every week, but I don't think it's so true. At least, not in my experience.


I've lived in the smallest communities where literally everyone knows all of your business, and I've called three of the USA's largest cities my home for a few short spells. I can tell you without a doubt, the place you live is only as boring as you are.

Even though there was plenty to do in those massive metropolitan cities, the amount of entertainment was quickly cut down by the lack of money to burn. Literally, everything costs money in big cities.


Arguably, the smaller the town, the more entertaining it is. Not because there's more to do, but because everyone seems to be on the same page with making something happen to pass the time.

No plans on a Friday night? String xmas lights through the barn and have a party. Snowed overnight? Buy a $20 junkyard car hood and some rope, tow it with a 4x4. No Saturday night plans? Buy a sixer of Surge and play Goldeneye 64 with your closest bros.


Even today, you can only do one of those things in a big city.

By popular opinion and a bunch of odd metrics, here are the twenty most boring places to live in America.
