Montana Ranked In The Top 5 Worst? Bad News For Tourists
We constantly hear about how many people come to Montana every summer. Whether they are visiting one of the colleges, checking on family, or doing the tourist thing, people flock here by the hundreds of thousands, literally.
Apparently, tourists have it completely wrong to put Montana on their summer list of places to visit. This was a bit shocking, but after reading how we got on this list, it does make some sense.
According to the latest 2023 poll, Montana is actually ranked in the Top 5 WORST Places to visit this summer.
Some of you are going to be thrilled about this! Perhaps it will keep people from coming here, as some of you have voiced you would prefer, but it could also put a financial burden on the towns that rely on those tourists. My guess is, it will not have an effect at all and people will still scurry to get here.
What was considered when deciding which states go on the "worst places to visit" list?
With 25 being considered "average" you can see that Montana is way below that when it comes to Wallethub's 10 considerations.

Now if you are looking for the best place for your summer road trip, you should consider the #1 state and that spot goes to Texas. Ugh, I guess everything is bigger and better in Texas...including road trips.
