The website Solitaired recently published its 'Most Boring Tourist Attractions in the World' list, and I was surprised to see that Connecticut made the list. The website analyzed 66.7 million Google reviews of 3,290 popular tourist attractions from around the world while focusing on 11 keywords that represent tiresome, lifeless, and downright boring. Each attraction was given a 'Boredom Score' (0-5) with 5 being the most boring. The following are the Top 5 most boring attractions in the world!

  1. Branson Scenic Railway - Branson, Missouri (Boredom Score(BS) - 5)
  2. Illuminarium - Atlanta, Georgia (BS - 4.5)
  3. Jurassic Jungle Boat Ride - Pigeon Forge, Tennessee (BS - 3.7)
  4. Salem Witch Museum - Salem, Massachusetts (BS - 3.4)
  5. Lego Discovery Center - Atlanta, Georgia

According to, the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford ranked as the 39th 'Most Boring Attraction in the World', with a boredom score of 2.1. Museums comprised 33% of the world's top 100 most boring attractions. Take a tour of the Connecticut Science Center courtesy of Fleabitten Adventures and decide for yourself.

The U.S.A. won the award for the most boring attractions globally. The state of Georgia has 21 boring attractions including four on the Top 100 hit parade. Florida (you say), not surprisingly, had 104 boring attractions, and believe it or not, North Dakota is the least boring state in the U.S.! Even some attractions in New York City can become somewhat tedious like the 'The Museum of Ice Cream' in New York, where you had better like the color' PINK.'
